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.

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!
Everyone Commented On How Great The Ceremony Was
We were looking for a marriage celebrant who would be knowledgeable, easy to contact and be able to give us many ideas for the ceremony. We had looked over some ceremony ideas online and in books but really wanted some guidance from someone who was well-informed. We also wanted to check details regarding the legal aspects, forms required, identification needed and so on to prevent any hitches.
Our main concern, from past experience dealing with other agencies and suppliers, was that whoever we chose would be easy to contact and answer our questions. We also wanted someone who had a friendly, humorous but professional approach. As a Celebrant, you fulfilled all of the criteria above and gave us so many great ideas for the ceremony, music and involvement of the guests.
You put both of us at ease, got to know us and what was important for us as a couple, and basically just guided us through the whole process. You thought of all the extra details that we may have overlooked, and delivered a fantastic service from start to finish, especially on the day where everyone commented on how great the ceremony was. You listened to our opinions and preferences, and still managed to convince a particularly headstrong groom to tow the line! =)
The documents and guide sheets were really useful as they meant we could read over everything and discuss it in the car following the appointment, and make decisions without overlooking things. They also clarified all the legal requirements and the steps needed. You also showed genuine interest in the venue and other parts of the day, and worked out how to make the ceremony compliment the event as a whole.
The face to face meetings were very helpful. We went through all of the details, relationship history, event details and ceremony preferences. The printed information documents wren also vet useful, including the legal things, the vow ideas, the ceremony addition ideas and then the draft copy of the ceremony before the day.
We would happily recommend your service to others, because we are confident that we would be promoting a professional, warm, trustworthy and humorous celebrant that others would be lucky to have!
Thank you so much for being our celebrant, we couldn’t have asked for better. If we renew our vows, you will be the first to know!
Such a lovely lady who made our day so special.
When we met, Joyce came across as such a lovely, nice, caring lady with a smile that drew me in; so I had no concerns about hiring her as our wedding celebrant.
It was so nice that we could meet Joyce at her house to discuss the whole process and that we could call her at any time.
From the first time we met, Joyce always made us feel like our day was going to go well. And it did!
I will certainly recommend Joyce. She is just such a lovely lady who made our day so special.
Thank you very much for all you did.
A beautiful and memorable experience
We had no reservations about choosing Joyce as our celebrant. She made us feel so comfortable all the way through.
The ceremony Joyce provides is so much more memorable than doing it at the registration office.
We loved the words said before the legal vows were conducted and the ring exchange with the true and meaningful words said about spending the rest of our lives together.
I would definitely recommend Joyce because of the beautiful and memorable experience I have had myself.
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
Joyce, You Made Our Night Perfect!
Damien and I chose Joyce as our marriage celebrant for our Wedding and for the Naming Ceremony for our daughter here in Perth on the 1st of October. We were so very happy with everything. Joyce is an absolute pleasure to deal with and I can't recommend her enough
Joyce, you made our night perfect - light hearted and funny - just the way we wanted it. Everyone there thought you were wonderful.
If we ever need a celebrant again, you'll be on speed dial!
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.
We very much recommend Joyce
We wanted to find the right person that matched the vibe we wanted as a couple for our event.

We loved the laughter and relax feeling Joyce gave to our guests.
If you are looking for a relaxed event with a personnel touch then we very much 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.
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!!!!!!
