Writing Your Perfect Wedding Vows.
Your marriage vows are the most important and meaningful part of your wedding day. Your vows trump everything else: the words you exchange and the promises you make to one another are how you declare your love, affirm your commitment and create your union - legally, spiritually and emotionally.
The words of your vows will live on long after your wedding day. Twenty years from now, will you really care what car you arrived in? Do you think you’ll think back on your cake with tears in your eyes, or cherish the memory of your floral arrangements? No!
What you will cherish is the memory of that simple, unassuming moment when you stood in front of your friends and loved ones and exchanged your vows.
Writing personal wedding vows brings a whole new level of meaning to your ceremony: That magical moment, when you find yourselves standing in front of the people most important to you, publicly declaring your love and commitment to each other in your own words, is a beautiful experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.
But writing personal marriage vows can be scary. They can be tough to write. And yes, you might feel nervous about sharing your most intimate feelings in public; but, personal wedding vows speak straight from the heart and that is exactly why they are so powerful!
There are many different ways you can approach writing your wedding vows and, in truth, you can do whatever you want! After all, they are your wedding vows and they should reflect who you are and who your partner is, and the relationship that you wish to share.
As an experienced Marriage Celebrant I work with couples almost every day; taking care of their legal vows and guiding them in how to write their own personal wedding vows that express exactly what is in their hearts.
If, for whatever reason, writing a personal statement of your love and commitment is not something you would care to tackle, why not check out my very affordable Vow Writing Service.

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!

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
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

It was a pleasure meeting you Joyce. Thank you for everything, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.

A huge thank you to you Joyce for making our day so special and for including our dogs too!
You were absolutely wonderful and I'd recommend you to anyone who needed your service. It was friendly and full of fun and laughter without being too serious. Just exactly what we wanted.
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.
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!
What a wonderful service Joyce provided
Joyce was warm, funny, and a perfect addition to our special day.
I had countless guests and family comment what a wonderful service Joyce provided. My husband and I were so thankful we chose Joyce to marry us. She accommodated our requests and even helped us pronounce our pregnancy which was a surprise. The choice of rituals was so enlightening and everything was so well organised.
We were always informed of what would happen and when.
10/10 would recommend.
And I am glad when I look back on our wedding day that Joyce was apart of it. She was wonderful
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
Joyce Exceeded All of Our Expectations as Our Marriage Celebrant.
Our main concern was that we wanted a friendly and personal experience for our intimate ceremony. We needn't have worried because you exceeded all of our expectations as our marriage celebrant.
What we specifically liked most was your personal and friendly nature, and your ongoing support throughout the process. We really appreciated the ease of the paperwork, and that you went over and above in sending in the name change forms etc for us.
We also liked how personalised your service was - you even allowed us into your home to meet your husband!
We think you are a beautiful lady and would feel honoured recommending your service to any of our friends and family in Perth in need of a civil celebrant.
