What documents do we need to fill out before we are able to marry?

The most important thing you should know, are the Legal Requirements that must be completed before a Ceremony can be performed.
'The Notice of Intended Marriage' found at: www.ag.gov.au should be completed and sighted then witnessed by a Celebrant no later than one month prior to your wedding date.
This document is then kept by your Celebrant.
A statutory declaration form will also be completed before your Wedding as well as a Certificate of Marriage. 
When the Ceremony is completed the Celebrant will lodge all Documents with Births Deaths and Marriages.
The documents you require to complete the NOIM are your original Birth Certificates , or Overseas Passport if you were born Overseas. 
If you were previously divorced or a spouse is deceased you also require appropriate evidence of either.
Please download The NOIM from The Attorney General's Website as sighting the document will give a little bit of clarity.

Linda is a 10 star celebrant. Not only did she put together a better version of our story than we possibly could, she delivered everything she said she would and makes it even better than you would expect. She is so easy to work with and genuinely cares. She is articulate and presentable. She is passionate about weddings and loves what she does! When we first heard our ceremony at the rehearsal we teared up within the first few seconds!

Linda is a very gentle and caring person, it was such a pleasure to have her as our celebrant who worked through our wedding ceremony details throughout the planning phase. Not only will she organise the readings and vows, but also she would calm you down on the wedding day and remind you to always enjoy the day! Thank you :)

Linda was great. All the way along she made the process of creating our ceremony fun & relaxed. We didn't know what we wanted for our ceremony but with little guidance Linda was able to bring it to life. Think she enjoyed the day almost as much as we did!
