Hi There

I’m Roxy Hotten – Celebrant, based in Brisbane, 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 since 2011.  I live with my rescue dog, Valentine (pictured – isn’t he handsome?), and my husband Mr HB (not pictured, but also handsome).

Why I Love Being  A Celebrant

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, open-minded, and non-flappable. 

I’m full of ideas and experiences to ensure every wedding is right for the couple I’m working with. As of 2019 I’ve conducted over 400 weddings and no two have ever been the same.

How I Work With You

When a couple contact me, I suggest a coffee (or something stronger) so you can see if I’m the right Celebrant for you.  I like to take the time to really get to know you and understand your vision for your wedding. If you live overseas, interstate, or have a super-busy life, we can chat by Skype.  I then leave it up to you to decide if you’d like to book me for your ceremony.

Once I’ve met you, I usually have enough information to write a draft of your ceremony.  If you go for my Full Works package, this is the part of your ceremony that I put the most effort into.  I love writing, and I want to get it right for you, so you’ll see a draft of the ceremony to fact-check and ensure I’ve got the right tone.

During the whole process, we keep liaising with each other until I have developed the perfect ceremony for you.  Hopefully, by the time I deliver the ceremony, it feels like a friend has married you.
