This is a quick overview on things you will need to organise for your wedding. When booking your ceremony with me, you will receive package of more detailed information.

  • Legal Documents

    Download Notice of Intended Marriage (pdf) Notice of Intended Marriage must be completed and lodged with me at least a month and a day before the wedding and no earlier than 18 months prior. more information…

    If you were born in Australia, I am required to sight your original birth certificates, if you do not have one you can apply for it at the Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages in the State where you were born. If you were born overseas it is also acceptable to use a passport from the country of your birth – it cannot be an Australian passport, Australians need a Birth certificate. If you have been married before you will need proof of how the marriage ended. (Original Death Certificate of your spouse or Decree Absolute of your Divorce.) You will need to sign a Statutory Declaration (which I will supply and prepare) before you are married, stating that there is no legal impediment to your marriage.

I will provide you with the application form and will lodge the form with all of your documentation, which saves you sending identification to BDM.
