Your Ceremony

The Ceremony Room is booked in half-hour intervals with an allocation of up to half an hour for the wedding ceremony. Depending on your specific requests and wishes, your ceremony may be conducted with only the minimum mandatory requirements - in which case it will be a fairly quick wedding process prior to the signing of official documentation by you, your celebrant and your two witnesses, or, your ceremony may be much more elaborate and personalised, and may fill the entire half hour booking, or you may even choose to book an 'extended ceremony' if you have many guests attending your wedding ceremony. The choice is entirely yours.

International clients

For overseas guests who plan to marry in Melbourne, Australia, Melbourne Private Marriage Registry can provide the perfect service for you. We offer a Victoria Marriage Registry office style wedding ceremony at a price you can afford!

What to bring with you?  You will need to bring your original Birth Certificate, and if either of you have been married before you will need to produce proof of how the last marriage ended. This mean you would need to bring Divorce papers or Death certificates. These must be originals certificates. It is important that all of these papers be brought with you to Australia to be sighted by your Celebrant. Without these original papers the marriage won't legally be able to go ahead in Australia.
