  • Marriage Celebrant Registration

    Baptist pastoral leaders may be eligible to be licensed as Marriage Celebrants.

    In this role pastors are required to fulfil both pastoral and legislative requirements, so a period of preparation is required. The BUV will only recommend pastors who have:

    • Completed their Accreditation
    • Attended a Marriage Celebrant Training Day – offered each year
    • An awareness of marriage preparation processes: registration with Prepare/Enrich is recommended

    Pastors should not accept invitations to officiate at weddings until they have a Marriage Celebrant License.

    If you’re interested in registering as a marriage celebrant under the BUV, please phone Lisa Isaacs on 9880 6150, or email:
