Meet Roxy

Roxy Hotten Celebrant

I’m Roxy, a dog-loving, wine-sipping authorised marriage celebrant and MC/emcee 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’ nails it.

There’s so little we have to do in a wedding ceremony. The legal wording is less than a hundred words, so this is only a small component of your day. This allows loads of room to get creative in developing something which results in a ceremony that is engaging, fun, genuine, and 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 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 check out my IGTV channel.

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, and 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 – 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 450 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, so I love a good op-shop. I also enjoy hanging out with friends, sharing a bottle of wine, a bit of banter and some great food.

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.

Let’s Chat!

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 roxy@roxyrocks.com. If you like, we can arrange to meet for a no-obligation coffee or a wine here in Brisbane. Or, if you prefer we can Zoom. Either way, it’ll give us a chance to get to know each other before you decide if you’d like to book me.
