Intro to Roxy

A friend

I’m Roxy and I’m a wine-sipping, bicycle-riding, dog-loving, Registered Marriage Celebrant who writes and delivers unique, personalised, meaningful ceremonies full of warmth, love, fun and humour.

I’ve been working as a celebrant based in London and Brisbane since 2011.  I live with my rescue dog, Valentine (pictured – isn’t he handsome?), and my husband Mr HB (not pictured, but also handsome).

Being a celebrant is not just a job to me; it’s my passion.  I love writing (in fact, I used to be a music journalist).  You can read my blog posts further below to get a flavour of my writing.

I love telling a couple’s story in a way which rings true to them and their guests. I can speak in public without getting the collywobbles.  I’m super-organised and am sensitive to others needs.  I’m full of ideas and experience to ensure every wedding is right for the couple I’m working with, not the same as every other wedding you’ve ever attended.

When I work with couples, I take the time to really get to know them and understand their lives.  By the time I deliver the ceremony, it feels like a friend has married them.

My ceremonies are personalised and I aim to engage with guests so they feel like they are part of the ceremony, rather than just an observer.

Don’t take my word for it though.  Read the lovely things said by lovely people on my testimonials page, feel free to ring on 0478 041 227 or email me at for an informal, obligation-free chat.
