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.

The Notice of Intention to Marry can be obtained from the Australian High Commission, Embassy or the Australian Foreign Affairs Department in your Country.

Read the form carefully. The back of the Form indicates who can witness the form for you. This Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) form can be lodged from your own country, or you can send it to us by mail or email prior to the wedding. The NOIM must be lodged no less than one month & one day prior to the wedding date.  When you arrive in Australia we can arrange all other legal paperwork for the wedding.

The Notice of Intended Marriage form can be downloaded here: NOIM form.

On the day of your wedding you will be given a presentation Marriage Certificate, however if you wish to obtain a copy of the Certificate of Marriage to take home with you before you leave Australia, you will be required to apply to the Births Deaths & Marriages in Melbourne. This is quickest when done in person at their offices in Melbourne. This can, however, be applied for by mail at a later time when you return to your home country.

Please feel free to either email or call us here at the Melbourne Private Marriage Registry if you wish to get married here in Melbourne. Telephone on +613 9820 1119, or if the administration offices are unattended – please call +61 424 77 88 00

We were fortunate enough to have our wedding here very recently. Merryn and the team are absolute professionals, friendly and very accommodating. The room itself is lovely and welcoming too. We wanted a small, intimate, fuss-free and stress-free wedding, and that is exactly what we got. Highly recommend!

Such a great experience. We assumed that we would be walking into a room with a desk and signing some papers. It was absolutely beyond our expectations. The ceremony and set up was so beautiful. We wanted something budget friendly & intimate only with our immediate family. We got that and soo much more. Chess was wonderful on the day. She guided us through every step. I was so nervous but the atmosphere when we walked in immediately made us both calm and ready to take the next step in our lives. We couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful day and just want to express our deepest gratitude. Will highly be recommending this to all our family and friends!

These wonderful people helped us organise our Melb wedding, from our interstate home. And when, at the last moment, we asked if they could come to us on location in Melb, they readily and happily accommodated us. Chess, our Celebrant, was the perfect person for a perfect day. She seemed to have an innate ability to tap into our essence and wove the ceremony accordingly. She exudes love, warmth and sincerity and brings ease and her own beautiful nature to a very special day. Everyone at the wedding was in agreeance and all fell in love with her. She was perfect. Thank you so much Chess. xx
Great service ,Chess was fantastic ,she really made our special day perfect. I definitely highly recommend.
