Allow independent officiants to conduct legally binding weddings

Petition Details

Currently only an authorised religious person or registrar can conduct a legally binding wedding. We want this to be changed so that independent officiants, either private individuals or people associated with particular belief organisations, can conduct legally binding celebrant weddings.


If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
