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.

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.
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
We had the most totally joyous day thanks to Joyce
We have been to a few weddings recently where the celebrants 'took over the show' and the weddings were all about their role in the ceremony, not the bride and groom.
We, on the other hand, had the most wonderful wedding. Joyce listened to what we wanted for our special day and delivered that and more. Friends and family still make a point of telling us how beautiful it was
We loved the way Joyce was happy to incorporate the Scottish handfasting and loving cup, with whiskey of course, into the ceremony. Joyce also managed all the paperwork and legal side of things so we didn't have to worry about any of that.
I would recommend Joyce in a heartbeat. We had the most totally joyous day thanks to Joyce. It couldn't have been better. Joyce worked with us to provide the wedding we wanted not a set package that is churned out on a regular basis.
Don't settle for anything less than 'perfect' for your special day, trust me Joyce will deliver that and more.
Joyce did the most amazing job
Joyce did the most amazing job at our wedding, we can't thank her enough.
From the very first meeting we just felt so comfortable and assured that we had made a great decision in choosing Joyce as our marriage celebrant. Her professionalism shone from the first meeting, right through to our special day. Joyce has a very kind nature, she listened to all our wants and was very patient and gave us great ideas for the day as well. She was very motivated and organised right down to every little detail. Though the weather wasn’t the greatest, we received several comments from our guests of how brilliant our celebrant was.
We would definitely recommend Joyce as a marrriage celebrant to our friends looking to get married here in Perth in the future. Thank you so much Joyce
Joyce was such a joy to work with!
We had no concerns about engaging Joyce as our marriage celebrant. We had seen her numerous positive reviews on Google and we decided to go with her.
Joyce was such a joy to work with! She was very friendly and more than happy to oblige all of our requests.
We loved how Joyce following up with us to ensure we did not miss out anything when we were putting in the paperwork to register for our marriage. Her attention to detail was fantastic.
When Joyce told the little story on how we met, she absolutely nailed what happened and her delivery was filled with warmth and humour. We loved it and I think the attendees loved it too!
Would we be happy to recommend Joyce to family and friends? Definitely. No questions asked!
Thank you so much once again for everything, Joyce!
She was brilliant!
We were hoping to find a marriage celebrant with a kind and calming presence who could put us both at ease. We did.
We found Joyce. She is an absolute fountain of knowledge with a warm personality and a calming nature. It was wonderful having someone we could bounce questions off and who could provide us with so many different ideas without making us feel overwhelmed.
Joyce was also so easy to work with. Joyce organised all the paperwork for us, she touched base with us regularly to make sure everything was kept on track, and she made us both feel so comfortable on the day.
Would be happy to recommend Joyce to others? Yes! She was brilliant!
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you Joyce, from two happily married lovebirds!
Joyce made sure we had an amazing day
We were concerned we might not find a celebrant able to provide a unique wedding ceremony but Joyce made sure we had an amazing day.
Everything was perfect on our day due to the little details that Joyce put into our Scottish ceremony.
Joyce was very professional, flexible and easy to get in touch with. I would recommend Joyce's services due to the results of our wedding day and how perfect it went
Thank you, Joyce, for your services. We had an amazing day and we loved the ceremony you made for us.
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
I would certainly recommend Joyce
From the first contact, Joyce was warm and professional.
Joyce explained everything to us plainly, she offered flexibility, was helpful in preparing our vows and was easy to talk to.
For all the above reasons, I would certainly recommend Joyce.
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.
