Marriage Celebrant Essentials
Marriage Celebrant Essentials
starting 19 January (Online)

This very popular, on-line, short course provides all the essentials for starting out on the right foot as a marriage celebrant. It ensures a thorough knowledge of the legalities imposed by the Marriage Act and recent changes affecting celebrants. You will be well set up for applying or renewing your appointment with BDM, and dealing with the tricky legal questions that invariably arise in a public role. You will learn about designing ceremonies at the simpler end of the spectrum. This course typically fills up, so enrol early if you want to be ready for the next wedding season. Those interested in crafting fully-personalised ceremonies will be invited to continue into our more advanced module Marriage Celebrant Mastery.

Wednesday 19 January:  7:00pm-9:30pm

Wednesday 26 January:  7:00pm-9:30pm
