Only registered Pastors who have completed the Queensland Marriage Celebrant Training Seminar are eligible to apply for a marriage licence. Pastors who have a marriage licence need to ensure they comply with all legal requirements relating to marriages performed, as heavy penalties can apply for any breaches.
All Pastors are required to undergo professional development training and it is recommended that Pastors attend the Marriage Celebration Training Seminar at least once in every registration period.
