Legal wedding requirements
Marriages performed in Australia are fully recognized in your country.
A "Notice Of Intended Marriage" form must be lodged with
the celebrant a minimum of 32 days and a maximum of 18 months prior
to the ceremony.
This form is obtainable from me.
I am also required to sight your birth certificate if you are born
in Australia. If born outside Australia, passports of birth or birth
certificates are required.
If either party has been married in the past, a "Decree Absolute"
form will need to be produced to provide evidence of dissolution.
For overseas residents:
Couples can contact me directly for the "Notice Of Intended
Marriage" form and must complete it in the presence of an Australian
consular officer, an Australian diplomatic officer or any notary
This document along with copies of your birth certificates (or if
these are not available copies of the passports of the country of
birth) should then be posted to me to process at least one month
and one day before the date of your ceremony.
If either party has been married before, evidence must be produced
of the termination of that marriage.
