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.

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.
Joyce is friendly, helpful and extremely professional
Our biggest worry was availability because we had a scheduled date for our wedding in a short space of time.
We found Joyce to be very friendly, helpful and she had great ideas for our wedding. She was extremely professional in both her work and her presentation and she was always available whenever we need help and advice
We both are very happy and loved our marriage ceremony very very much.
If you are looking for a professional, friendly and hard working marriage celebrant I would certainly recommend Joyce.
Everything we wanted for a celebrant and more!
Before choosing Joyce as our celebrant our main concern was finding someone who was warm, fun, and friendly. Someone who could make our ceremony enjoyable and memorable for all our guests.
After meeting Joyce for the first time, we knew we had found our celebrant. She was so everything we wanted for a celebrant and more!
She not only helped us make our ceremony special for us but we found someone who could help us with the legal process before and after the ceremony.
One thing we really loved about Joyce was how she was able to show our family and friends just how much we appreciated them being present at our ceremony.
We also liked how Joyce was she was able to Joyce took the stress out of the legal process and the marriage ceremony itself. She also made our family and friends feel comfortable, as well as being fun and smiling throughout the ceremony.
We would definitely be happy to recommend Joyce's service. Joyce is warm and humous and able to lead the ceremony with a smile on her face.
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!!
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.
Joyce was great! Professional, organised and very helpful.
We were useless at wedding planning, so we wanted someone who was organised and was able to help guide us through the process.
Joyce was great!
She was well prepared and well organised from the beginning, which, for us, was extremely helpful as we were useless at wedding planning! She was also extremely helpful in the preparation of our custom vows.
Joyce did a great job on the day. She was professional but also relaxed and able improvise when needed.
Joyce was everything that we wanted in a celebrant, we would highly recommend her.
Your Words Were So Perfect They Made Me Cry!
We were really concerned about having an over-the-top celebrant and not getting our vision for the wedding.
But, Joyce knew exactly what we were after. It's like she read our minds!
Joyce was very prepared and very helpful, specifically during the rehearsal as we had no idea what either of us were doing.
Joyce was very calming - weddings are very stressful and having a calming and relaxed celebrant is quite important.
Joyce is not pushy or rushing, she lets everything and everyone flow at their own pace which created an ambience I think everyone appreciated.
Our ceremony went perfectly! Tears were shed, happiness was spread and it's all because of Joyce!
Thank you so much Joyce, for being the celebrant for our amazing wedding!! We loved it so much! Your words were so perfect they made me cry!
I really really appreciate everything you have done for us! Both Jarred and I agree that it wouldn't have been as perfect as it was without you.
Are we happy to recommend Joyce? Of course we are!
We knew you were the one!
We didn't really have any concerns before choosing you as our marriage celebrant: you had made me cry when we met you at a wedding event, so we knew you were the one!
We loved the questionnaire that we filled out to give you an idea about us and our relationship.
We really appreciated that you brought the humour and lightheartedness to our ceremony that we were looking for and that you made us feel so at ease.
Thanks for keeping those boys under control; they can be a bit rowdy! 🙂
