Officiating at a marriage requires that the celebrant be an authorised marriage celebrant under Australian law. An "authorised celebrant" is a person who is authorised (registered) by the Australian Government to perform legal marriages according to the Marriage Act 1961. A celebrant may be a representative of a religious organisation (known as a religious marriage celebrant) or someone providing secular or non-religious weddings (known as a civil marriage celebrant). Only authorised or registered marriage celebrants have the authority to perform marriages in Australia.

Once registered (or authorised as it is also known), the marriage celebrant can marry couples in virtually any location (e.g. beach, headland, boat etc) and at any time of the day or night.
