Hello from the Waikato Region of New Zealand and welcome to the website for Roxanna - Marriage Celebrant.
I became a celebrant because a friend asked me to officiate at her wedding. Having gained the title of Marriage Celebrant, I didn't end up leading her wedding, but didn't want to just leave my certificate languishing in a drawer. I have a strong belief in the institution of marriage and kept hearing couples say they couldn't afford to get married but would have loved to. I'm in favour of weddings which reflect the nature of the couple making the promise to each other and understand not everyone is able to afford everything they imagined their wedding day to be. The most important function of a wedding is the legality and yet it's only a tiny part of the day. I decided I could help couples by marrying them and asking for a small competitive fee.
