The Code of Practice

Marriage celebrants are governed by a code of practise. 

You can view the whole document here, but here are the general responsibilities your marriage celebrant has to you, the couple being married:

  • act  professionally at all times,

  • be respectful to cultural, spiritual and family differences.

  • observe the legislation and the law in solemnising your marriage (aka marrying you),

  • give you the freedom to create your own wedding ceremony,

  • must conduct a rehearsal if desired,

  • arrive for the ceremony at an agreed time, at the least 20 minutes beforehand 

  • maintain a professional business including document filing facilities, office facilities and maintain confidentiality of the couples married.

Of course, if you have any questions, queries or concerns about my services, please communicate them to me via email or give me a call and we'll have a chat. If you’ve a problem with your marriage celebrant then contact the Attorney-General here to move forward with any complaints.
