The Role of the Civil Marriage Celebrant


s a Civil Marriage Celebrant, I am appointed by the Australian Attorney-General’s Department and am authorised to solemnise marriages anywhere in Australia in accordance with the Marriage Act 1961. My role as a marriage celebrant involves conducting commitment ceremonies, renewal of vows ceremonies, naming ceremonies and funerals and memorial ceremonies.

Celebrants are highly trained and qualified. Marriage Celebrants appointed since 2003 have had to undergo special training before being appointed. In addition to my formal work-related qualifications, I possess a Certificate IV in Celebrancy.  In addition, as with all Civil Marriage Celebrants, I am required to undergo five hours of ongoing professional development each year.

These days, more and more people are choosing the alternative offered by Civil Celebrants, as it provides a professional ceremony that is able to meet their needs and wishes for their special day.

Marriage Celebrants are governed by a strict Code of Practice as set down in the Marriage Regulations 1963 that you can read here.
