|The Humanist Celebrant Network
The Humanist Celebrant Network is an association of like minded Celebrants. Based in Australia, it includes both Australian Commonwealth Registered Marriage Celebrants and General Celebrants.
The Humanist Celebrant Network has been in existence for many years and is recognised by the Australian Commonwealth Attorney General's Department as an official Celebrant Association for purposes of celebrant consultation and disbursement of celebrant electronic publications and other notices and representations.
High Court Justice, Senator, and former Attorney General of Australia, Lionel Murphy, subscribed to Humanist beliefs and in consequence initiated the Civil Celebrant Program in Australia. Prior to 1973 the only alternatives available to marrying couples were to marriage in a religious ceremony or in a Registry Office. The Civil Celebrant Program has proven very popular with marrying couples, 60% of whom now marry in civil ceremonies. There are over 8,000 civil celebrants authorised by the Australian Goverment to soleminise marriages 24/7 anywhere in Australia.
There are Humanist Celebrant Network member celebrants in most states.
