A marriage entered into in Australia is void (invalid) if it has not been “solemnised” by an authorised marriage celebrant.
Only authorised marriage celebrants are allowed to solemnise marriages in Australia.
Most federal, state and territory laws also recognise de facto relationships, often on an equal basis to formal marital relationships.
The only requirements for registration of a minister of religion is that he or she is nominated by a proclaimed "recognised denomination", is a resident in Australia, and is at least 21 years old.
This may be to the family’s ancestral home country, to a destination wedding location or because they would not be permitted to marry in Australia.
As was the case for other Western countries, marriage in Australia for most of the 20th century was done early and near-universally, particularly in the period after World War II to the early 1970s.
The marriage celebrant and two witnesses over the age of 18 years must also be present, and follow any tradition or custom, or none at all.
However, if a party to the marriage is not an Australian citizen, issues may arise with plans for the couple to move to and live in Australia.
