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.

We were in great hands!

Our main concern was finding someone that would fit with Jason and me. From the moment we met you we knew you were the person we wanted to marry us. We both felt instantly comfortable and your sense of humour was great, really down to earth.

We were not stressed about any of the legal side of things as we had confidence in what you explained to us and knew we were in great hands. There was so much we didn't know and you help us through all that.

Your personality just shines through and makes all who are around you feel happy and relaxed.

You made us feel comfortable on the day and helped us get through it without too many tears 🙂

You worked with us to provide us with the ceremony that fit with Jason and me, you helped make it special.

Without a doubt we would recommend you as a celebrant, you made our day complete. Because of you, we choose the Hand Fasting to be included in our ceremony. We had so many comments about that and how much people enjoyed the ceremony and they thought you were amazing.

Jason and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping make our day a complete success. You were very professional but at the same time, you were part of us and our family and friends. You are without a doubt a very special lady.

Jason and Kathryn Fallon

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.

Carl Travaglini

Joyce was fantastic!

Joyce was fantastic! We started off just wanting a straightforward wedding but she just very calmly and professionally suggested a few things to personalise a ceremony for us and we are so happy she did. Amazing! Went beyond what we expected. She was so warm, everyone loved her!

Anne Wedlock

A ceremony that suited us perfectly.

We were keen on making sure our ceremony was simple and not over the top.

Joyce was very professional and provided lots of suggestions that we hadn't thought of and the result was a ceremony that suited us perfectly.

Joyce is a pro. Definitely knows what she is doing, which is exactly what you need on a stressful day such as your wedding.

The online booking system was a great idea - very streamlined. Joyce provided her own sound equipment, including the option to play our music through aux cable - which made everything so easy.

Joyce is friendly, organised and professional. I would definitely recommend her!

Thank you so much.

Olivia Withers

Brilliant! Thank you! Perfect day!

Joyce was fabulous! She helped us create the perfect wedding ceremony by making it comfortable, fun and enjoyable for us all.

Brilliant! Thank you! Perfect day!

I could not recommend Joyce highly enough, Thanks again xxx

Erin Hinsley

Made our special day perfect!

We wanted someone we got along with well that was a lot of fun

Joyce was exactly what we were looking for!

We really liked her ability to tell our story whilst adding her own personal touch.

Also loved Joyce's efficiency with legalities, ideas on presenting the bridal party and rituals for our ceremony

Definitely happy to recommend Joyce because she brings professionalism and consistent improvement and friendliness into her work

She made our special day perfect!

Sheree Teagle

It really was one of the best days of our lives!

Before choosing Joyce as our celebrant our main concern was feeling comfortable with the person that was marrying us and that it would be somebody who could best guide us in vows that matched out relationship.

After choosing to work with Joyce we found that everything felt comfortable and natural. Joyce provided us with vows which incorporated our love for each other, our little son and our families.

The one thing we really liked most about the service provided was that everything felt tailored around our relationship and life

We also liked that we were provided with a draft version of our service and could then make changes. We liked that Joyce took the time to come to our location for a rehearsal with us and our photographer.

Yes, we would be very happy to recommend Joyce's service to other couples. Joyce will make any couple feel comfortable and will make sure their individual story as a couple is shown to their loved ones.

Thank you so much for marrying us, it really was one of the best days of our lives!

Nicole and Thomas Cobern

We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant.

We wanted to ensure we hired a professional, experienced celebrant who represented value for money.

We found Joyce to be a friendly, helpful and professional celebrant who helped our ceremony run smoothly.

We really liked that we could contact Joyce via email rather than having to phone you or book in a meeting.

Her calm, confident manner during the ceremony was reassuring and the fact Joyce provided her own mic and speaker meant there was one less thing we needed to organise.

We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant. We were 100% satisfied with your service and we have had nothing but excellent feedback from our wedding guests on the way you conducted the ceremony.

We were happy to have you as part of our big day.

Many thanks again, Joyce!

David and Crystal Patullo

She made our day absolutely stunning!

Absolute pleasure having Joyce as our wedding celebrant. She is so kind and loving. She made our day absolutely stunning!

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!
