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.

I can't wait to renew my vows so we can book Joyce again!
Kim witnessed Joyce marry her best friend and thought she must marry us when we marry the following year.
Joyce, you offered us nothing but love, professionalism and an incredible service. It was like we've always known you as a friend.
Joyce understood our needscompletely. The service content she provided was truly amazing. The options of text for the service were excellent and A.V. was just right for our service.
I would absolutely encourage everyone to use Joyce because you won't get a better celebrant and a more genuine service.
I can't wait to renew my vows so we can book Joyce again 🙂
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.
Joyce is an Absolute Gem!
Joyce did an absolutely amazing job as the marriage celebrant at our wedding in Perth. Our main concern about hiring a civil celebrant was that our wishes for a quick, easy, family orientated wedding that involved our children would be dismissed. But we found Joyce to be an absolute delight and so easy to work with. From the first contact nothing was a hassle. She was amazing with everything and covered every aspect of our wedding. She is very friendly and down to earth and was able to cater to all our needs.
We can't thank you enough Joyce. You’re so friendly and happy, so reasonably priced and so easy to work with. You’re just an absolute delight! We definitely will be happy to recommend your service. Thank you for everything. You are a star!!!!!!
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!
You Provided The Best Service And The Most Heartfelt Ceremony
I had attended previous weddings and the celebrants were either very young or a little detached I felt. I was looking for someone who had some life experience and wanted someone we felt comfortable with. You were the first celebrant I contacted and after speaking with you on the phone I didn’t bother speaking to anyone else.
From our first telephone conversation, I felt totally comfortable and when we met for the first time Tim actually said, “You have definitely chosen the right person” (and he doesn’t normally say much). We found you to be someone who is extremely professional and prompt in the business side of what needed to be done. In addition to this, which was very important to us, we found a very warm and caring person.
The service you provided was so special – not only professional but you cared about us personally, and our love story, how we got to the point of our decision to marry after 28 years. Loved how you also incorporated our lost loved-ones in our ceremony (I know there was a few - more than most young couples ha ha)
You made the legal process for us very smooth, explaining clearly what was needed. Sending us the ceremony was reassuring for what was going to happen on the day because it showed you had really listened to everything we had said about “our story” and our family story (have to tell you that we both were emotional reading the ceremony – a very good sign – and that’s how we chose our music).
We certainly are more than happy to recommend you. You provided “the best” service and the most heartfelt ceremony – so over and above anything we have ever seen at other weddings before. Your made the legal process easy for us, you actually listened and heard “our love story” and incorporated it all so perfectly in our ceremony.
There is nothing to add except another big “Thank you” for everything. Loved everything about our ceremony – and the “extra mile” you went for us - and such lovely things you said about the relationship we formed during the process. I know I’ve said it before but again “You’re Amazing”.
Thankyou Joyce for Everything. It Has Been a Wonderful Day.
The connection we feel between the celebrant and us was a big concern of ours.
We found Joyce is very productive, she knows what she is doing, is straight to the point and funny while still being serious.
We love how Joyce takes care most of the paper work and made sure there was not much hassle for us to worry about. .
We also appreciated that Joyce is very efficient and nice to work with - she was very quick to reply back in emails.
Thank you Joyce for everything. It has been a wonderful day.
A Beautiful Memory in My Heart Forever
First of all, I have to say if you choose Joyce as your marriage celebrant, you never gonna regret. You will have totally beautiful wedding same as you wish. I recommend her highly. This is real my review
From first meeting with Joyce everything has been through smoothly. Actually we had a "budget and small wedding", but it was not problem at all. We married in Joyce's house in Perth with beautiful river view. It was much better than any other venue seriously!
From first meeting, she gave us many tips for making perfect wedding with a budget like as violinist, music, cake and decorating. Nothing was problem. Joyce was just magician, she convert our small wedding to most romantic wedding. Such a beautiful wedding memory I will put in my heart forever
Joyce, I need to say thank you. I don't know what to say, but is something more than just one word from my heart. xoxo
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!!
