About the Association of Civil Marriage Celebrants of Victoria
The focus of celebrant members of The Association of Civil Marriage Celebrants of Victoria Inc. (ACMCV) is in providing high quality, professional services for couples choosing civil marriage ceremonies.
However, some celebrant members also conduct other ceremonies such as Naming Ceremonies, Renewals of Vows & Funerals. Our large membership consists of registered marriage celebrants and general celebrants predominantly from Victoria, but also from most other states of Australia.
As from 9th January 2018 the Marriage Act 1961 was amended to redefine marriage as “the union of two people, to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life’. That means gender no longer affects the right to marry under Australian law and same-sex marriage is now legal in Australia.
