Celebrants can legally perform marriages and/or civil unions in New Zealand. You can choose to be independent or connected with an approved church or organisation.
As a marriage celebrant, you're responsible for making sure the legal requirements of the ceremony are met.
Once you're registered as a celebrant, you need to renew your registration each year and keep your contact details up-to-date. You can also get ongoing support and education.
