When performing your marriage, all civil and religious marriage celebrants must:

  • ensure that no food and drink is consumed at the wedding location for one hour before the ceremony, until the end of the ceremony
  • ensure that the wedding takes place within the boundaries of the approved location, as set out in the register of approved locations, and is separate from other unrelated activities (for example, if the wedding is in a room in a hotel, caterers can’t set up tables in the same room whilst the wedding is taking place)
  • ensure the details of wedding display notice is in place least one hour before the wedding and throughout the ceremony
