What to do now?



Under Australian law it is mandatory that a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) – ‘Form 13 (Regulation 38) should be lodged with the celebrant no less than one month, and no more than 18 months, from the proposed marriage date. If you are wanting a Victorian Marriage Registry styled ceremony then it is simple to lodge your NOIM at the Melbourne Private Marriage Registry in South Yarra, so that you can be legally married in one month’s time.

Your first step will be to lodge your Notice of Intended Marriage with one of the Registered Civil Celebrants at the Melbourne Private Marriage Registry. In order to do this you will be required to either email or phone to make an appointment during administrative business hours which are generally between 10am and 7pm on Weekdays.  During that appointment you can fill out all the details required on the Notice of Intended Marriage form and lodge this with the celebrant. It is also possible to send in your Notice ahead of your appointment time in order to start the lodgement process.

This ceremony can be provided anytime 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, depending upon the couple’s budget, and the availability of the Ceremony Rooms and Civil Celebrant.

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.
