I’m Roxy, a dog-loving, wine-sipping authorised marriage celebrant, wedding MC, and celebrant mentor based in Brisbane. I travel and deliver wedding ceremonies in south-east Queensland, northern New South Wales and beyond.
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’ basically nails it.
There’s so little we have to do in a wedding ceremony. In fact, the only thing we have to do during this part of your day is the legal wording, which is less than a hundred words. This allows loads of room to get creative. I develop ceremonies which are engaging, fun, genuine, cliché-free and – most importantly – totally you.
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 that authenticity is right, then the ceremony will be a highlight – rather than something to be endured to get to the fun bit – of the day.
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 (yep, I’m super organised).

How Your Ceremony Will Feel
My celebrant and MC/emcee delivery style is warm and inclusive. Hopefully you and your guests will feel the warm and fuzzies. 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 wedding 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 below – isn’t he handsome?).
I started as a celebrant in 2011, and have conducted over 600 weddings. In all that time, I can honestly say that no two have ever been the same.

I love design, dogs, bicycles, gardening, and snuffling for vintage treasures, especially a rummage in a good op-shop. When I’m feeling social, I’ll be sharing some banter with friends, ideally over a bottle of wine, coupled with a charcuterie board.
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 60% of my weddings are outside of Brisbane. I love to travel, and as a podcast addict I can tick this off my list whilst travelling.
If you’d like to see if I’m the right Celebrant for you, let’s chat. Give me a ring or text on 0478041227 or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can arrange to meet for a no-obligation coffee or a wine here in Brisbane. Or, if you prefer we can Zoom – whatever works for you.
I pay my respects to the Traditional Owners and keepers of this beautiful land upon which I live and work. I’d like to thank them for their care of this land and for sharing their culture and knowledge with me.
