Legally, your celebrant needs to receive the "Notice of Intended Marriage" form (in portfolio I provide) as a minimum one calendar month prior to the date of the ceremony, and not more than 18 months in advance. Alternatively you can download a copy here
I am required to sight ORIGINAL Birth Certificates (if born in Australia) an extract if original is not available,or an Australian Passport; a current passport (if born outside Australia), along with any other relevant documentation (Certificates of Divorce, Citizenship papers, Translated Birth Certificate etc) and photo identification such a drivers licence.
At your wedding you will need to have 2 witnesses over the age of 18 years. In certain circumstances I can provide these witnesses if required.
I will lodge the relevant forms with Office of Births Deaths and Marriages within 14 days of your ceremony.
