Questions and Answers

What are the legal requirements for marriage in Australia?

Kelly Della Bosca Celebrant

  • Both the participating parties must be over 18 years of age.

  • A Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) must be lodged with a Marriage Celebrant at least one month and one day prior to the wedding day service. I will prepare the NOIM and serve as a witness to your completion of it. I require credible, original forms of identification, such as passports and birth certificates. Copies of these documents cannot be accepted.

  • The marriage ceremony must have a minimum of two witnesses, who must be over 18 years of age, and be fluent in English, otherwise a certified English translator will be required.

  • By law, certain, core statements must be included in the ceremony, I will go through these with you in our first meeting.

How do I change my name after the marriage ceremony?

Kelly Della Bosca Celebrant

Any one of the wedding couple can obtain a marriage certificate following the ceremony from the Office of Births, Deaths and Marriages in Victoria, or whichever state the ceremony was performed in. They can then apply to departments that administer identification, such as the Electoral Office or Medicare in order to change their surname on their records. A marriage certificate will not change the name on an original birth certificate.

The marriage certificate you receive at the end of the ceremony is commemorative only, it will not support your application to change your name. I will lodge the official documentation with the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages on your behalf. You should then contact the Registry directly in order to obtain a legally recognized certificate.
