Why Trust Joyce As Your Civil Celebrant?
With me as your celebrant you can be confident that your ceremony will be unique, heartfelt and truly personal… whatever the occasion. My sole focus is on delivering great service, exceptional value for money, and a magical, meaningful and memorable experience for you and for your guests.
My philosophy is simple... and it revolves around you
1. You will find me well presented
My dress style is elegant and understated… I never under-dress! On the day, my outfit will reflect the type of ceremony you have chosen in colours that will coordinate, not clash, with the bridal party. (I would like you to note that if you do choose a beach wedding… I will not be turning up in a bikini. And, that’s a promise!)
2. You will find me enthusiastic, entertaining and engaging
I am well-spoken and, as an accomplished jazz singer, I possess strong voice projection and the ability to ‘read’ an audience and the skills to ensure they are fully engaged and connected with your ceremony.
3. You will receive personal and supportive advice
I take pride in taking the time to really get to know you; to understand the vision you have for your ceremony and in working diligently to make sure that your vision becomes your reality.
4. Your ceremony will be truly personal
I promise you the full breadth and depth of my experience and expertise and a ceremony designed to respect your beliefs, reflect your values and to touch the hearts and minds of everyone present.
5. You will have no (unplanned) surprises
While I'm happy to perform ceremonies that are a surprise for your guests, my promise and my commitment to you is that you will experience no unforeseen surprises when it comes to your ceremony. Everything will be planned, agreed and signed-off well before your big day. You can find out more about what I do and how I do it here.
What My Clients Have To Say
My promise to you is a magical, meaningful and memorable experience for both you and your guests, whatever the occasion. But don’t just take my word for it; please read what my past clients have to say about me and how I live up to my promise.

Absolute pleasure having Joyce as our wedding celebrant. She is so kind and loving. She made our day absolutely stunning!
Joyce is absolutely wonderful in every way!
What can I say... Joyce is absolutely wonderful in every way!
Our biggest concern was not being able to find a Celebrant that could make us feel calm during the ceremony
Joyce was a perfect match for us and made our wedding day extra special. We couldn't be any happier with her 🙂
She is so humble and genuine which makes the whole process so much easier!
Not only did she make us feel so calm during the ceremony, her presence was enough to make us feel loved... like she was part of the family!
Joyce was also able to recommend a piper and tunes for the ceremony which was one less stress for us.
So thank you Joyce for being such an amazing celebrant for Graeme and I!
The way Joyce designed and put everything together was just perfect
Joyce had married a friend of mine who had said she was just beautiful… can I say she was and is right!
Our first conversation on the phone made me feel Joyce was going to be perfect.
We felt she had a sincere interest in marrying us. To want to learn and know our story and assist us in making our ceremony extra special for a very special occasion with her great ideas, knowledge and professionalism on the subject. We felt Joyce would create something that would be perfect for us: something that is us, for our wedding day.
We could easily see she had the expertise and sincerity to assist us in making our day memorable by being our marriage celebrant.
Along with all the above we loved the ceremony options Joyce offered us. We chose Celtic Hand Fasting. This was wonderful as we are a couple, who have children from previous relationships and it was a fabulous way to bring two families together. So it was just a perfect option for us as we got our children involved as well.
The way Joyce designed and put everything together was just perfect. And can I say, everyone who attended, has remarked on what a beautiful ceremony it was. They had never been to such a grand beach wedding with such a grand celebrant.
We loved that we were able to get everything emailed to us to review so we could make our decision for our ceremony.
It was great to be able to liaise with Joyce to perfect the way we wanted it. Her professional guidance and expertise made our ceremony simply perfect for us.
And we loved the way Joyce dealt with all the necessary paperwork and legal documents. This was made very easy for us as she were so very organised and so professional. Thank you Joyce!
Having a rehearsal too, gave all who were able to attend a good idea of how the ceremony was going to run.
Would I be happy to recommend Joyce’s service? Yes, yes, yes!
And the reasons why are all of the above!
Joyce’s total commitment to us as a couple about to take on marriage.
Her absolute professionalism and expertise throughout this whole journey from the first phone call, to the actual grand beach wedding ceremony.
Our family and friends say exactly the same too. Everyone just loves Joyce and the way yshe delivered our wedding.
Joyce has a wonderful aura and personality. We cannot say enough about her…Joyce is a fabulous lady and a fabulous celebrant!
Steve and I would sincerely like to thank you Joyce for making our day so special for all involved. It would be a pleasure recommending you to anyone looking for a fabulous celebrant to marry them! Thank you so much.
Joyce made our service individual to us & special to our guests
We were concerned about finding a marriage celebrant that we would connect with and would make our day special and individual to us.
We met Joyce we were completely relaxed in her company. Joyce is an amazing person and we knew straight away that we had picked the correct celebrant for us.
The service Joyce provided was individual to us. She worked on our service and helped us facilitate the extras that we wanted to be part of our wedding day and gave us the appropriate advice on how to make the ceremony flow
We loved Joyce’s relaxed & welcoming personality as it made us feel relaxed and that was evident on our day: neither of us had nerves or any worries - Joyce dispersed them. Joyce wrote an amazing service for us, neither of us are religious and are very down to earth and she made the ceremony that way.
We would be more than happy to recommend Joyce to anyone. She made our service individual to us and special to our guests. We had the most amazing feedback from our guest at how amazing our ceremony was and that it was individual to us and out different cultures that we brought together.
Joyce, you were an amazing celebrant and you made our wedding ceremony. We have had only positive feedback regarding it. We cannot thank you enough.
Joyce Made Us Feel Super Special!
My wife and I couldn't be happier with having Joyce as our marriage celebrant.
She was professional, friendly and made the marriage process a breeze. We had a very small and intimate wedding, and Joyce was able to still contribute with ideas which we incorporated into our ceremony. Even though it was small, she made us feel super special about our "big" day.
A massive thank you to her for her ongoing support, contribution and kindness. We would highly recommend anyone to Joyce in the future.
Everyone Said It Was Wonderful!
From start to finish, Joyce was amazing and performed our ceremony, with confidence and style!
We first met Joyce when we were looking for a band to play at our wedding and were excited to learn that our lead singer was also a registered civil celebrant here in Perth. Joyce stood out for us immediately with her lovely bubbly personality and we loved the way she personalised our ceremony and made it unique for us with a relaxed easy going intimate feel that we were hoping for. We had so many positive comments after the wedding from our friends with everyone saying it was wonderful.
Thank you so much Joyce for making our wedding day absolutely ‘perfect' for us. We were completely happy with the whole ceremony and wouldn't want to change a single thing. I would definitely recommend Joyce to anyone who is looking for an amazing marriage celebrant in Perth, and we believe we have found a new friend in this delightful woman.
