Johnelle Hosking

I Do Ceremonies

Ladies & Gentlemen, please be seated, the bride is on her way!

I'm Johnelle Hosking, a professional public speaker based in Rotorua, Bay of Plenty.

As an experienced MC and event coordinator with a background in Radio, attending weddings made me happy and a little disappointed...Seeing the quality of some celebrants and MCs who we're less than great made me think 'I can do way better myself'. In 2023, I put my money where my mouth is and registered as an Independent Marriage Celebrant in New Zealand.

Now taking bookings for celebrant services, reception MCing and on the day coordination.

Daniel & Felicia

''We feel very honoured to have been maried by Johnelle.

We had a last minute wet weather change of plans that Johnelle assured me was all under control. When I saw Johnelle for the first time before walking down the aisle, she didn't mention any plans etc, she just asked me how I was feeling and complimented our outfits, it was really nice and eased my fears. She was very professional and organised throughout the whole process. I would recommend her to anyone getting married.''
