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.

We couldn't have been happier.
We had no concerns before choosing Joyce.
Joyce was so calming and gentle throughout our emotional ceremony. We couldn't have been happier.
We really liked her being in contact and her great communication throughout entire 12 months of planning.
Loved her assisting with the vow-writing and helping to create our story with our initial meeting.
We have been and would recommend to any future bride and groom.
Thank you so much for being part of our special day and adding your touch of humour to our ceremony.
Joyce Was Amazing To Work With!
Joyce was so amazing to work with! From the initial consultation to the day of the wedding it was executed with such professionalism making the occasion both personal and stress free.
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.
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 couldn't have asked for a better celebrant.
We wanted to ensure we hired a professional, experienced celebrant who represented value for money.
We found Joyce to be a friendly, helpful and professional celebrant who helped our ceremony run smoothly.
We really liked that we could contact Joyce via email rather than having to phone you or book in a meeting.
Her calm, confident manner during the ceremony was reassuring and the fact Joyce provided her own mic and speaker meant there was one less thing we needed to organise.
We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant. We were 100% satisfied with your service and we have had nothing but excellent feedback from our wedding guests on the way you conducted the ceremony.
We were happy to have you as part of our big day.
Many thanks again, Joyce!
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
Joyce made our service individual to us & special to our guests
We were concerned about finding a marriage celebrant that we would connect with and would make our day special and individual to us.
We met Joyce we were completely relaxed in her company. Joyce is an amazing person and we knew straight away that we had picked the correct celebrant for us.
The service Joyce provided was individual to us. She worked on our service and helped us facilitate the extras that we wanted to be part of our wedding day and gave us the appropriate advice on how to make the ceremony flow
We loved Joyce’s relaxed & welcoming personality as it made us feel relaxed and that was evident on our day: neither of us had nerves or any worries - Joyce dispersed them. Joyce wrote an amazing service for us, neither of us are religious and are very down to earth and she made the ceremony that way.
We would be more than happy to recommend Joyce to anyone. She made our service individual to us and special to our guests. We had the most amazing feedback from our guest at how amazing our ceremony was and that it was individual to us and out different cultures that we brought together.
Joyce, you were an amazing celebrant and you made our wedding ceremony. We have had only positive feedback regarding it. We cannot thank you enough.
We were comfortable choosing Joyce for our marriage celebrant because of feedback from other couples.
As well as being functional and providing correct service, Joyce was friendly and easily approachable. She made our wedding relaxing so everyone could enjoy it.
Would definitely recommend Joyce. She could make events lively. She was perfect!
Very happy, our day was beautiful and you helped create that!
My husband and I wanted a simple ceremony that reflected who we were as people. Joyce helped us design a ceremony that suited us and gave us ideas on how to make it truly personal and special.
Joyce is a lovely person that was very accommodating and organised. When you have so many stressors in the months leading up to the wedding, it was for us, so lovely to have one less thing to worry about as we knew Joyce was on top of it.
We were looking for a custom wedding in which our uncle from Scotland could be involved, Joyce was happy to accommodate and came up with a ceremony that would enable us to have him do a hand fasting. It truly was a magical experience and we are still getting comments on how beautiful it was.
Joyce was very organised, she had all the paperwork we needed to sign and took care of posting it off, it was the little touches like this that makes her stand out.
Very happy, our day was beautiful and you helped create that.
Thank You again for everything!
Joyce was very helpful and easy to work with
We had no concerns about engaging Joyce as our wedding celebrant.
Joyce was very patient (particularly when I stressed out a couple of days before the wedding), very relaxed and easy going.
We liked that we included remembering those who passed away and the tie the knot ceremony for Stu's dad
Overall we had an excellent service and we felt very comfortable.
We would certainly recommend Joyce was very helpful and easy to work with and everything ran very smoothly.
