Interpreters at a Marriage Ceremony
Tim Manger
Civil Marriage Celebrant

In this section, we look at information regarding use of Interpreters at marriage ceremonies conducted in compliance with Australian Law.

Section 112 of the Act provides that where a celebrant considers it desirable to do so, they may use the services of an interpreter in or in connection with a marriage ceremony. The interpreter must be a person other than a party to the marriage. It is the responsibility of the celebrant to make the decision as to whether an interpreter is necessary.

The celebrant must not solemnise a marriage at which the services of an interpreter are to be used unless the celebrant has already received a statutory declaration by the interpreter stating that he or she understands, and is able to converse in, the languages in respect of which he or she is to act as interpreter.

Immediately after the ceremony, the interpreter must furnish to the celebrant a certificate of the faithful performance of his or her services as interpreter. The certificate must be in the prescribed form. The statutory declaration and certificate must be forwarded to the appropriate registering authority with the registration copy of the marriage certificate.
