Annie Halse Smith - Marriage Celebrant
Yes they are both equal under Australian law. It is entirely your choice as to which ceremony you choose. You and your partner can choose how you wish to be married. In a civil marriage ceremony, other than a few legal requirements, you really can have a ceremony you desire. Marriage Celebrants are trained to meet the needs and wishes of their clients. After all, it is one of the most momentous days in your life. You may choose to have religious elements included in your ceremony. Good luck to you and your partner in deciding how you will have a ceremony that you both will love.
