Legal requirements for your wedding

Updated: Oct 31, 2018

It’s a good idea to be aware of the legal requirements for marriage in Australia so that you can enjoy creating your perfect wedding ceremony, a Happy Heart Celebration.

A Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM): this must be completed and be lodged at least one calendar month prior to the date of your wedding.

No Legal Impediment to Marriage: you will also need to complete a form declaring no legal impediment to marriage prior to the wedding.

Identification & proof of birth: each of you will need to provide the following original papers:

· Birth certificate OR Passport showing place and date of birth (translated to English if required),

· Current Photo ID, in the form of passport or driver’s license.
