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.

Loved the personalised service!

Before choosing as our celebrant, our concerns were, I guess, whether the ceremony would go smoothly, be carried out the way we would like it (we wanted a simple but personal ceremony) and if our preferences would be understood.

But, we knew as soon as we met Joyce that we would be able to develop a good rapport, that she would listen to our needs and put a lot of effort into creating a really personal and enjoyable ceremony.

Working with Joyce was enjoyable throughout the whole process. I liked Joyce's warmth and friendliness and the fact she made a number of really good suggestions for our ceremony as we were a bit clueless!

I loved the personalised service, the pre-ceremony visit to our home and that we enjoyed a laid back, stress-free, event!

I would definitely recommend Joyce as a celebrant for a wedding. She was confident, commanding and funny; just what we wanted. She really made us feel as calm as possible about the ceremony.

It was a pleasure working with Joyce.

Jenny Kim

It was perfect!

We were concerned about how to get a marriage certificate

Joyce had fast processing with the marriage and made us convenient to get the marriage certificate

She was very kind and also friendly. Pretty much satisfied with her work. We are happy with her work.

I absolutely recommend the service if somebody need that because it was a great service... No, it was perfect!


We Found Exactly What We Wanted

Before choosing Joyce as our celebrant our main concern was being able to find a celebrant we both could relate to and enjoy.

In choosing Joyce we found exactly what we wanted!!

We specifically liked the way Joyce managed any 'boo boos' thru the service as if that was what was meant to happen ha ha!

We also liked how Joyce explained everything that needed to be done and kept us informed. She is very professional - in a nice way. The use of her little "loud box" for our music, her ability to have a laugh and a really big amount of patience were all appreciated too.

We surely will recommend your services Joyce. You made the day go very smoothly and happily. Thank you.

Keep on doing what you love, because you are very good at it!!

Ann and Nev Hurring

Everything we hoped it would be.

Our biggest concern was finding a celebrant who would be comfortable performing a same-sex marriage.

We needn't have been concerned. Joyce immediately made us feel welcome and put us at ease quickly.

Joyce gave us a ceremony with a relaxed atmosphere and with appropriate humour.

We loved the inclusion of the handfasting ritual and candle lighting ceremony for our absent family & friends

We would be very happy to recommend Joyce. She is such a genuine person.

Thank you for making our ceremony everything we hoped it would be.

Elizabeth Pearce

Joyce was absolutely amazing from the word go.

It is so hard to choose a celebrant that works for you as a couple butJoyce was absolutely amazing from the word go.

She discussed what we thought we wanted and then made it ours and made it magical.

Joyce was so relaxed and calm and joyful; she made us feel the same. This had a huge impact in the lead up to our ceremony and in putting the final touches together.

Joyce's communication and flexibility were brilliant and she was full of great ideas and that were special to us.

If I were to ever recommend anyone it would only be Joyce!

Joyce Did a Wonderful Job as Our Marriage Celebrant!

Joyce was our marriage celebrant for our recent wedding ceremony. 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 she did.

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

Katie Van Kampen

Our night was very personalised.

Knowing we had chosen the right person to marry us was our biggest concern before working with Joyce.

Joyce met us as a couple at the outset, which was very helpful. Joyce was just so caring, patient and very accommodating.

She made sure that we had what we wanted to include for the ceremony. As a result, our night was very personalised.

We liked that Joyce sent off all our paperwork, that made it very easy for us.

Yes, I would definitely recommend your services because of all of the above. You were lovely to work with.

Just a big THANK YOU for being our celebrant and for being such a lovely, caring and helpful person.

Shene O'Connor

We couldn't have asked for a better service

Joyce was our wedding celebrant in October 2016, and we couldn't have asked for a better service.

From start to finish, Joyce was professional, quick to respond to questions and a mine of information!

She really got to know us as a couple and put together the perfect ceremony that suited us exactly. All of our guests made sure to tell us how much they enjoyed it!

I would wholeheartedly recommend Joyce as a celebrant, she was fantastic.

Rebecca Hagedoorn

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 the ceremony ours!

We were hoping to find someone who understood how casual we wanted our ceremony to be.

Joyce was happy to make the ceremony ours whilst ensuring all the legalities were followed.

She was friendly, super helpful and provided us with everything we wanted.
