1. You must be 18 years of age. If one person is under age marriage is still possible by parental consent as per section 12 of the marriage act.
2. A Notice of Intended Marriage (N.O.I.M) must be lodged with a celebrant at least one calendar month prior to the wedding ceremony. I can prepare the N.O.I.M for your signatures and I will witness it. I must sight your original birth certificates if born in Australia, or a passport if born overseas. If parties are born overseas and are unable to obtain a birth certificate, a statutory declaration can be used.
Foreign language documents must be translated into English and a NAATI accredited Translation Certificate supplied. If either has been previously married, I will need to sight the Divorce papers, or Death certificate if applicable.
