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.
What My Clients Have To Say
My promise to you is a magical, meaningful and memorable experience for both you and your guests, whatever the occasion. But don’t just take my word for it; please read what my past clients have to say about me and how I live up to my promise.
We were so impressed!
We were concerned about finding someone that we thought would fit with our personalities.
After choosing Joyce as our Celebrant we were relieved of the anxiety of what and how to manage our ceremony.
Cheryl and I along with many of our guests were so impressed with the Ribbon ceremony and how this included the special people in our lives into the ceremony with us.
We were very pleased with how you provided detailed options for procedures and the relevant literature to assist us in our choices. The sample vows were very useful for thought prompts on what to say and assist in compiling our own vows.
We will definitely recommend you to any persons that are in need of a celebrant.
We found that you are very approachable with a great personality. You are very professional in your work, and at the same time, you are very aware of your clients' needs.
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
Thanks for making it so special!
We wanted someone easy to talk to and reliable. Also with a funky edge to engage our guests.
Joyce is the best. She has so much experience and knowledge At every stage she really helped make it so much easier and stress free.
What we really liked was Joyce having examples when planning and her being able to help with rehearsal and having music for the ceremony 🙂
Also loved her being able to direct guests and seating arrangements on the day and making people feel comfortable.
We are so happy with how everything was. We would not have wanted our wedding to be without you. Thanks for making it so special!
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!
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.
Joyce was fantastic!
Joyce was fantastic! We started off just wanting a straightforward wedding but she just very calmly and professionally suggested a few things to personalise a ceremony for us and we are so happy she did. Amazing! Went beyond what we expected. She was so warm, everyone loved her!
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! 🙂
Thanks For Being So Amazing!
We had no idea what was involved and how much depth a marriage celebrant needed to go into - but Joyce soon fixed that!
Joyce was always available, would always get back to us and was happy to discuss any amendments - as a result the service was exactly what we wanted.
Joyce also helped us understand the process of the service and how to organise things and she provided us with alternatives so we could customise the service.
Joyce got us! And, her delivery was just perfect in conveying what we wanted and who we are as a couple.
Joyce, thanks for being so amazing - we couldn't have done it without you! You truly were a highlight of the day and everyone raved about you. You definitely delivered on all your promises and we will definitely be happy to recommend you to family and friends in need of a celebrant.
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!
Everyone Said It Was Wonderful!
From start to finish, Joyce was amazing and performed our ceremony, with confidence and style!
We first met Joyce when we were looking for a band to play at our wedding and were excited to learn that our lead singer was also a registered civil celebrant here in Perth. Joyce stood out for us immediately with her lovely bubbly personality and we loved the way she personalised our ceremony and made it unique for us with a relaxed easy going intimate feel that we were hoping for. We had so many positive comments after the wedding from our friends with everyone saying it was wonderful.
Thank you so much Joyce for making our wedding day absolutely ‘perfect' for us. We were completely happy with the whole ceremony and wouldn't want to change a single thing. I would definitely recommend Joyce to anyone who is looking for an amazing marriage celebrant in Perth, and we believe we have found a new friend in this delightful woman.
