Highly Relevant Answer
Can any Celebrant marry us if we are non denominational?
No, only authorised Civil Celebrants can solemnise weddings in Australia.
Can you legally marry us if we are both Catholic?
Yes, although I would need to marry you at a location that was not on church grounds.
Poor Relevancy Answer
Can the minister of our parish legally marry us outside the church grounds?
Yes, although if both partners are of the same denomination (example: Catholic), then the minister may require you to be married within the parish grounds.
Can we choose religious texts, readings and scriptures for our ceremony?
Can we choose religious music for our ceremony?
Can we include religious rituals at your ceremony?
What is the difference between a Civil Celebrant and a Minister of a Church?
A Civil Celebrant is secular (not associated with religion or spiritual beliefs), whereas a Minister of a Church is bound by the doctrine of their faith.
Can you marry us in a Church?
The answer is maybe. You need to talk to your parish Minister to seek permission. Each church parish varies in what it will allow Civil Marriage Celebrants to do.
