Getting Married in Australia- legal stuff
If you decide to marry somewhere other than the Registry you are required to give a marriage celebrant at least one month and one days notice (and not more than 18 calendar month's notice) of an intended date of marriage.
Civil and religious marriage celebrants are listed on the Attorney General's Commonwealth website. Here you can search for both ministers of religion, and civil celebrants, who are authorised to perform Marriages.
Once you choose a marriage celebrant, they will ask you to complete a Notice of Intended Marriage form which they will provide to you. Alternatively, you can download the form from the Attorney General's site.
A Notice of Intended Marriage may be lodged prior to the 18th birthday, as long as the marriage occurs after the birthday
If you are unable to provide these documents, you should see your marriage celebrant for further details.
After your ceremony
has taken place, your civil or religious marriage celebrant will forward
the marriage paperwork to the Registry to register your marriage.
Once the marriage is registered, the Registry is then able to produce your Standard and Commemorative Marriage Certificates.
