What legal requirements are in place for Marriage in Australia?

You’ll need to both be over the age of 18 years, and have two witnesses present on the day of your marriage who are also over the age of 18. If either of you have previously been married, you’ll need to produce your divorce papers and/or if either of your spouses are deceased, a Death Certificate.

English birth certificates are required if you are Australian born, otherwise you’ll need a birth certificate and passport from your country of birth.

You’ll also need to sign your Notice of Intended Marriage with me no less than one calendar month prior to the marriage. I can provide this form when you first meet with me.

How far in advance should I contact you?

You’ll need to sign a Notice of Intended Marriage with me at least one month before your wedding, but ideally you should talk to me as soon as you’ve decided on a date, time, and location for your ceremony. You can contact me earlier than this if you need any advice though, I’m happy to help.

What do we need to do after we are married?

You’ll need to obtain a registered copy of your Marriage Certificate. I can take care of this, or you can obtain it yourselves the next working day from the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

If you’re a resident from a country outside the British Commonwealth, you’ll also need to obtain an Apostile stamp from the Department of Foreign Affairs in Sydney. This will allow you to register your marriage in your country of residence. Again, I can help with this if needed.
