I came across Joy when searching for a Marriage Celebrant. Joy’s profile exuded warmth and she felt right for us. Joy’s communication was faultless, keeping in touch and explaining to me everything I needed to know.

My now husband and I had been together 18 years, and felt it was time to make it official. We wanted a no frills occasion, yet something memorable for us and our closest loved ones.

Joy was amazing at keeping ‘our secret’; as we planned to surprise our family. I still remember feeling frazzled, knowing what we had planned. When we arrived at the venue for a few drinks and seeing Joy sitting there quietly reading a book, made me feel calm. Joy came over and told my family and friends that she had been asked to take a group photo, then led our small group to the spot we had discussed for the ceremony.

I will never forget the look on our loved ones faces when Joy declared that Scott and I were to be married.

For any occasion that requires a person who is the very definition of their name. I could not think of anyone else but Joy Gottermeyer.
