There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.

How to get married by a marriage celebrant

A marriage celebrant will take care of all the legal documents before, during and after your ceremony; including all the legalities during the ceremony. There are surprisingly not a huge amount of legalities required to get married, but it’s very important that you do those legalities correctly.

You’ll Need These Legal Documents To Get Married:

  • A Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM)
  • Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage
  • Marriage Certificate
  • Form 15 (Marriage Certificate)

A Marriage Celebrant will help you arrange and organise them; including assistance with the timing they need to be signed and submitted.

You will need to bring your Identity Documents so the celebrant can verify you are who you say you are. The best documents for this task is your Passport and/or your Drivers license & Birth Certificate.

If you don’t have access to any of these identity documents you will need to either order them from Birth, Deaths and Marriages or talk to your wedding celebrant about organising a Statutory Declaration to explain why you are unable to get any access to them.
