Celebrancy in Australia

Becoming a Celebrant in Australia

Requirements to Be Registered as a Marriage Celebrant in Australia
People wishing to become a Commonwealth-registered marriage celebrant must have successfully completed the Certificate IV in Celebrancy (CHC42608) or an equivalent university qualification in order to meet the qualification requirement for registration.

Australian Marriage Celebrant Program

The Australian Government Marriage Celebrants Program was established in 1973. It enables the appointment of suitably qualified people to perform marriages and provides couples with a meaningful alternative to Registry Office and religious weddings.

The completion of a training course has been a requirement for registration as a Commonwealth-registered marriage celebrant under the Program since 2003. However, the completion of the required training is not sufficient on its own for registration. An applicant must also satisfy the Registrar of Marriage Celebrants that he or she is a fit and proper person to be registered as a marriage celebrant. Registration is not automatic.

Important information to consider before working to become an Australian marriage celebrant: Before you embark on the training and subsequent application process to become a Commonwealth-registered marriage celebrant in Australia, consider the information on the Australian Government Attorney General’s Department website about Marriage Celebrant Responsibilities and Regulations.
