Crown Killick - any way to get married in PO rig?

My partner is a Crown Killick, and hoping to be on the PO signal this spring. We're getting married in August, and he's going to be in rig. Obviously he has fat chance of being promoted by then, but is there any way anyone is entitled to wear the PO rig i.e. through local acting etc? If not, junior rate rig it is!

to be issued with the SRs rig they need to be promoted, Acting local if the unit needed an extra PO would do that, he could speak to his boss, you never know until you ask.
nothing wrong with the square rig.

What is a crown killick ?
It used to be a person who had completed PO Leadership Course (senior command course) and professional Qualifying Course (branch specific PO course). Whether that still applies I'm not sure but as stated above, unless rated PO, you cannot wear the uniform unfortunately.

I believe that has changed, it certainly has for my branch. You cannot wear a crown unless rated Petty Officer now.

Select, train, promote.

Had a google, BR 81 section 3922, June 16 version 3 (On the RN Web Site)
d. Basic device with crown above: on qualifying professionally for Petty Officer.

I cannot see a branch being singled out to not allow the crown, so either the BR is OOD or someone has got it wrong! Is there a current Reggie knocking about who can elucidate?
 
You can get a crown as a LH if you are selected for promotion, complete leadership and POQC all before your common promotion date.

You can also become a Crown Killick if reverted or deselected. If had an Acting PO who simply needed to pass RNFT to become confirmed, but they decided to chin off the phys and was subsequently deselected and drafted off to a LH assignment.
