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.

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!
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!
Made our day special
Before meeting Joyce we were concerned about arranging everything plus family issues we had .
Joyce had a calming effect and was reassuring to us both.
She gave us efficient yet personal service and made us feel special.
She even lent us a tablecloth when I was stressed because I could not find one.
Joyce's humour and laughter made arranging our ceremony easy and fun (arranging things usually stresses me!!!)
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Joyce. You calmed me down and made our day special.
Just exactly what we wanted.
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.
