With a diverse range of scenery and a multitude of cultures, weddings abroad in Australia cater for every taste. Australia has a wide choice of venues to host your wedding ceremony and if you fancy stepping away from tradition then you can choose to get married in a lighthouse, on a yacht, in formal gardens, or even in a chapel slap bang in the middle of the rainforest.

Marriage Requirements


It is necessary to file a Notice of Intended Marriage to an authorised marriage celebrant no later than one month and one day prior to your intended wedding date and within 18 months. This can be filed from overseas as long as it has been signed in front of either an Australian Diplomatic Officer, an Australian Consular Officer attached to an embassy in your country, or a notary public. Once signed and witnessed, the form can be sent to your wedding planner or the marriage celebrant. Other documents you will need to produce include an original birth certificate and a 10 year passport with at least 6 months validity remaining on it.
