Intro to Roxy

Hi, I’m Roxy, a dog-loving, wine-sipping authorised marriage celebrant based in Brisbane. I travel and deliver wedding ceremonies in south-east Queensland, northern New South Wales and beyond.

Every ceremony I conduct is different and I offer a truly flexible approach to co-creating your ceremony. I can work with you to design your perfect ceremony. This might be, for instance, a quick, no fuss ceremony or one that creates something truly authentic and memorable.

What’s My Celebrant Vibe?

I’ve been trying hard to think of a way to encapsulate my celebrant vibe which is a bit more sexy than ‘authentic’, but as hard as I try, ‘authentic’ nails it.

I believe that everything in a ceremony should be memorable. After all, there’s so little we have to do in a ceremony. In actuality, the legal wording is less than a hundred words. Therefore, this allows loads of room to get creative in developing something which nails your dream ceremony.

I believe that everything in a ceremony should have a purpose, a meaning, a realness.  That’s why I work closely with couples in planning their ceremony.  If we get that authenticity right, the ceremony will be a highlight – rather than something to be endured to get to the fun bit – of the day. If you’d like to see one of my ceremonies in action, feel free to read this blog which includes a video.

There’s a number of careers which have helped shape me into the celebrant I am today. These include music journalist (check out my blog for a flavour of my writing) and Project Manager (I’m super organised).

How Your Ceremony Will Feel

My delivery style is warm and inclusive. I write and conduct ceremonies which have a healthy dose of humour and a laid-back feel. The result is a ceremony which feels genuine, relaxed and engaging.

I love a microphone and can talk in public without getting the collywobbles. I’m a calming and organised presence, there to support you and facilitate your perfect ceremony. And I promise… your ceremony will never be boring.

A Bit About Me (And My Dog!)

I’m an ex-Londoner, living in Brisbane, marriage celebranting it up big time whilst living with my dog, Valentine McFarty (pictured – isn’t he handsome?). Oh, and my husband Danny Brown (who, although not pictured, is also very handsome).

I started as a celebrant in 2011, and have conducted over 400 weddings. In all that time, I can safely say that no two have ever been the same.

I love design, dogs, wine, bicycles, gardening, op-shops and hanging out with friends.

Based in Brisbane – Will Celebrant Anywhere

As a Celebrant based in Brisbane, you’d probably assume most of my ceremonies are here in the city, right?

Nope. Approximately 80% of my weddings are outside of Brisbane. This suits me perfectly as I am someone who loves to travel, and as a podcast addict I can tick this off my list whilst travelling.
