Naming Ceremonies - Joyce Mathers Celebrant

Naming Ceremonies

Baby Naming Ceremonies

A Baby Naming Ceremony is a uniquely personal opportunity for you, your family and your friends to come together to celebrate the arrival of the precious new life that has come into your family; be it newly-born, adopted or a step-child.

A Welcoming, or Naming Day, Ceremony is a beautiful centrepiece for a family celebration that can be conducted at any time but it is commonly held within the 1st year of your child's life -  very often in conjunction with the child's first birthday celebrations. A naming ceremony can also be held in conjunction with a wedding ceremony, a commitment ceremony, or a reaffirmation of vows.

Your Naming Ceremony can be organised  in any  number of ways. It can be a fun-filled and interactive occasion with you and your guests releasing balloons, placing notes in a wishing well, lighting a decorated naming candle or showering you baby with rose petals. Or it can be a calm and spiritual affair with traditional poems or readings and perhaps some music in the background. The choices are endless.

However you choose to celebrate the arrival of your new child, I promise you a ceremony that:

  • is totally unique and individual to you,
  • is authentic to your beliefs and family values,
  • fully reflects the love you have for your child, and
  • is a source of surprise and delight for you and your guests.

With me as your celebrant you can be assured of a uniquely personal ceremony to celebrate and embrace the precious new life that has come into your family and welcome it to the world.

If you are looking for an entertaining and engaging Civil Celebrant to create a magical, meaningful and memorable Naming Ceremony for you then, perhaps, we should chat …

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.


We loved the personal touches.

We wanted someone that would tailor the service to our liking but add their own bit of spunk to truly make the day special.

And Joyce, you were exactly what we were looking for in a celebrant. You were so accommodating and charming; you really seem to enjoy your work!

We loved the personal touches. We received a touching card in the mail after our wedding, as well as a follow-up email. For which we are sorry we haven’t returned! It slipped our mind until now. During the ceremony, you were so professional yet charming and engaging as well as supportive.

We liked how you tailored the ceremony to suit us and what we wanted and the PA system was a great idea!

Yes, I would absolutely recommend you, Joyce! You’re such a lovely and kind person. Our guests were also quite impressed with you!

Thank you so very much, Joyce! Xx


We Were Very Happy With Our Ceremony

Our priority was a personalised and individual ceremony that was unique to us as individuals and newlyweds. We were very pleased and relieved after meeting with Joyce as we felt this was going to be the case.

Joyce was very attentive and understood what we were looking for in a celebrant, where others we had met were very clinical and rushed us through as another cab off the rank.

Our expectations were not only met but exceeded. We were very happy with our ceremony and from all reports it was very personal and heart-felt.

Joyce's general attitude and demeanour was very warm and welcoming. The suggested ceremony rituals were useful. She took note of our individual circumstances and relayed that in the ceremony script.

Joyce provided a ceremony service of a high quality and from experience that's hard to find.

We may seek her services for future life events of ours or our friends and family.

Very happy we found Joyce!

Not having meet Joyce before, we where unsure what to expect. But, we are very happy we found her!

Joyce is honest, very easy to communicate with and a pleasure to deal with.

I liked the fact that Joyce listened to our requirements and made the day stress free

Joyce accommodated us at short notice and took care of all of the paperwork. As we were coming from New Zealand to Australia to get married, this would have been a real challenge for us.

If we ever had to get married again or renew our vows we would be happy to use Joyce again.

Andrew Brook

Lovely and caring in all that we wanted!

We were initially concerned whether she could accept all our requirements, but aww, she was lovely and caring in all that Tony and I wanted☺

We really appreciated Joyce's professional style, humour and her personality ☺☺ and we loved how, when you were doing our ceremony, you included all our guests and had them join in.

I'd recommend Joyce Mathers to anyone of my family and friends. Reason being: Her professionalism, her personality and how she took care of detail.

She goes with the flow and is a very nice and elegant woman.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH 💒💐💙💚💛💜❤💖💝☺☺☺

Joyce Made Our Day Truly Memorable

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Joyce as a marriage celebrant.

She helped us make our day truly memorable. It was a beautiful and intimate service made all the more special through Joyce's attention to detail.

Jacqui Nielsen

The first celebrant I had chosen cancelled on me so I was looking for someone more reliable and you had good reviews so I took a chance and it paid off. 🙂

Everything was EASY and LAID BACK and done in a timely manner

We appreciated the rehearsal - so we knew what to expect and when to say our parts.

I would definitely recommend you, Joyce - you were very easy to work with and answered all my questions as if I was your only bride 🙂

Everything was truly great. Thank you

Joyce was fantastic!

We wanted someone that we were both comfortable with. After seeing Joyce perform a friend's ceremony, she remained in our minds for when it was our time to chose a marriage celebrant to perform ours.

Having about 130 guests at our wedding, we also needed someone who could organise the guests and provide instructions while keeping people engaged. Joyce was able to do all of this and more.

Joyce was fantastic at helping us create our ceremony. We had no idea where to start, with all of her handy examples, hints and tips we were able to create a ceremony that really suited us and our story

Something very small but also pretty important, Joyce's dress on the day was a perfect match for the feel and dress code of our ceremony, she was very well presented. Joyce really made it feel like it was just the 3 of us up there, she was calm and spoke very clearly thought the whole ceremony.

We would absolutely recommend Joyce to anyone. We had so many compliments after the wedding on how good she was.

Keep doing what you are doing Joyce!

Joyce Understood Our Needs Perfectly!

Thank you Joyce for a beautiful ceremony.

Our day was made all the more memorable by your warm and welcoming personality.

Our family asked if you were a personal friend. You understood our needs perfectly.

Pauline Dunning

Your Words Were So Perfect They Made Me Cry!

We were really concerned about having an over-the-top celebrant and not getting our vision for the wedding.

But, Joyce knew exactly what we were after. It's like she read our minds!

Joyce was very prepared and very helpful, specifically during the rehearsal as we had no idea what either of us were doing.

Joyce was very calming - weddings are very stressful and having a calming and relaxed celebrant is quite important.

Joyce is not pushy or rushing, she lets everything and everyone flow at their own pace which created an ambience I think everyone appreciated.

Our ceremony went perfectly! Tears were shed, happiness was spread and it's all because of Joyce!

Thank you so much Joyce, for being the celebrant for our amazing wedding!! We loved it so much! Your words were so perfect they made me cry!

I really really appreciate everything you have done for us! Both Jarred and I agree that it wouldn't have been as perfect as it was without you.

Are we happy to recommend Joyce? Of course we are!

Exactly What We Were Hoping For in a Marriage Celebrant

We booked Joyce as our marriage celebrant for our recent wedding ceremony in Perth. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with every step of the way.

She was a wealth of knowledge, helped us find a ceremony ritual that we loved, and helped tailor a ceremony that was short and sweet - exactly what we were hoping for. We had many of our wedding guests approach us on the day and comment on what a wonderful job Joyce did.

We would unreservedly recommend Joyce to anyone in Perth seeking a wedding celebrant who is warm, friendly and professional. Thank you Joyce!
