About Australian Marriage Celebrants Inc. (AMC)

Australian Marriage Celebrants Incorporated (AMC) is one of the very first celebrant associations formed with the introduction of Marriage Celebrants over thirty years ago. Over the years the association has undergone a number of name changes as we restructured, meeting modern day needs of marrying couples.

The Executive Committee is a highly regarded and experienced team, collectively having performed well in excess of 4500 ceremonies. You can be guaranteed to receive the correct advice and answers to your questions, assistance with your ceremony content, and legalities. We have professional celebrant trainers on the executive team who deliver Ongoing Professional Development (OPD) nationally to all celebrants.

AMC boasts over seven hundred members and is one of the largest in Australia. All members are professionally trained to the highest standard and receive constant support from AMC. Members receive a quarterly electronic Newsletter containing valuable information and updates to policies and procedures as they are released from both Federal and State authorities. Additionally, AMC Executive meetings are held every quarter, and the association hosts top class conferences biennially.

At meetings and conferences, members have an opportunity to undergo their required five hours per year of OPD, a requirement under the Marriage Act 1961 and Regulations. Marriage Celebrants are obliged to adhere to a clear and prescribed Code of Practice as set down by the Act. This ensures that Marriage Celebrants maintain a high degree of professionalism and are at all times fully aware and up-to-date with the latest information and requirements. View the Code of Practice on the “Celebrant’s Role” page.
