The Alliance of Celebrants Queensland (ACQ) is Queensland's largest membership based association of celebrants who officiate at weddings, baby namings, renewal of vows, commitment ceremonies, milestone ceremonies and funerals both marriage celebrants and religious marriage celebrants. Our members are all professionals who are committed to on-going professional development and providing the highest level of service to all couples and their families at memorable times of their lives.
Celebrancy in Australia celebrated its 40th year in 2013 having first been introduced by the Hon Lionel Murphy QC whilst he was Attorney-General. His vision was for all couples and families to have the ability to have a ceremony of their choice and for Australian Civil Celebrants to provide the best ceremonies in the western world (which we believe we do).
The ACQ was formed in 2008 so we celebrate 10 years this year, to give support to all Celebrants in their professional field with inclusion and connection for like-minded individuals and for couples to have their cultural, spiritual and family traditions recognised and upheld within ceremonies with substance and meaning. If you're looking for a wonderful, caring professional Celebrant to conduct your special ceremony, please click on the 'Find A Celebrant' tab above to start searching for one closest to you or the area in which your wedding will be held.
All of the volunteer committee are dedicated to organising events, Ongoing Professional Development, conferences and support to all its members. The ACQ are also proud members of the Coalition of Celebrant Associations (CoCA) who are the recognised peak national body by the Attorney-General's Department who meet twice yearly in Canberra.
