Marriage Guidelines

The Marriage Guidelines are regularly update to provide marriage celebrants with 'best practice' guidance. As such, these guidelines should cover the majority of situations, but may not apply to all. There may be exceptions to the rule, in which case the Marriage Celebrant is always wise to check the Marriage Act for final direction. Meeting the requirements of the Marriage Act is  a 'must' for all marriage celebrants.

Coalition of Celebrant Associations delegates work to advise the Attorney-General Department on refinements and updated on the Guidelines.

The Marriage Guidelines can be downloaded from the Attorney-General Department website:
