Maintain your registration and details
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.
At the end of each year, the Registrar-General will send you an email asking if you want to keep being a celebrant. If you do, you need to complete a renewal process online.
Make sure you keep your details up-to-date so you get your email.
Update your details
Use your RealMe account to update your contact details using the celebrant self-service portal.
If you’re using this service for the first time, email firstname.lastname@example.org to get your activation email.
