Thank you so much for making our day so wonderful, we just can’t get over how perfect your accent sounded!

We feel like we should have gone to Scotland for our honeymoon; one day perhaps!

I was very lucky to meet and talk with a lovely young engaged couple about their forthcoming wedding in September.    They were a joy to talk to and such happy people, they have ‘engaged’ me to perform their ceremony, I’m a very happy officiant!

We consider ourselves lucky to have found Joyce Hilbery. As soon as we met her, we were both so excited and knew she would provide exactly what we had envisioned for our wedding day ceremony. Joyce was very adamant about letting us set the tone for what we wanted and was patient in answering all of our questions. We were able to select all of the readings as well as our vows from a list she provided and she even tweaked the readings to better fit our relationship. Joyce was prompt the morning of the wedding & her bright spirit showed throughout the ceremony. I've had many family members and friends tell us how wonderful she was and asking us, "WHERE DID YOU FIND HER!?!". We are appreciative of all her work and preparation for one of the most important days of our lives. We would recommend Joyce Hilbery to anyone who wanted a genuine officiant who provides excellent service.

From the moment I called Joyce on the telephone, she and I had an immediate bond and I told my husband I love her, I love her, I love her; lets hire her before someone else gets her. After just one meeting we BOTH knew that Joyce had everything it was going to take to make our special day truly special. When it came time for the writing of our vows Jeff and I had no clue where to start and were scared to death we would mess it up, Joyce once again came to the rescue and helped us choose which vows were good for us and reflected our values and beliefs. Joyce really helped us get it together and have the BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES. I will never forget the day of our wedding standing up in my parent’s room waiting to walk down the aisle, my mind racing my heart pounding and family chaos everywhere and Joyce coming into the room with a big smile on her face and words of comfort that totally relaxed me and prepared me to do “the walk”. Words cannot express the lasting impression Joyce has made for Jeff and I. If you want someone who will go above and beyond her call of duty then consider yourself lucky to have Joyce, she will not let you down!

What makes a beautiful Wedding Day?

A number of things …obviously the bride and groom, happy and smiling enjoying their day, but when a ceremony interrupted with an unexpected tear from the officiant, and many of the guests come forward offering tissues to save the day!
