Sydney Weddings

Your journey to married life begins immediately following your engagement. All of your wedding preparations, from the venue to the attire, may cause you to overlook the legal requirements for your ceremony.

It is critical to understand the legal requirements before getting married in Sydney. Take note of these points whether you plan to have a civil wedding or celebrate this wonderful event in a church.

What are the prerequisites?

If you want to legally marry in Sydney, there are a few things you should know. The following are the initial requirements, according to the Attorney-General’s Department:

  • The individual must be at least 18 years old (a court may approve if an individual is 16 to 18 years old but it is subject for approval).
  • Both people should not be married to anyone else.
  • The individual should not marry their sister, brother, grandfather, parent, child, or grandchild.
  • The person should understand what marriage is, and you should give your consent to marrying the other person.
  • The person who is legally bound to marry must use specific words during the marriage ceremony.

Within the time frame, a Notice of Intended Marriage should be given to the marriage celebrant, who is a person legally authorised to solemnise a wedding.

  • The Notice of Intended Marriage
  • You should give the completed form to the celebrant 18 months to a month before the wedding date.
  • In some cases, a prescribed authority may be able to approve a wedding with less than a month's notice if you are getting married in less than a month.
  • You must provide the celebrant with the following proof of identification, including your birthplace and date of birth, as well as any previous marriages. A completed statutory declaration may also be required.


What documents are required?

  • Original birth certificate or extract from the original birth certificate
  • Original passport, either Australian or foreign
  • If you were previously married, you must provide proof of divorce (divorce certificate or a Decree Absolute) or a death certificate.
  • The celebrant will provide you with a statutory declaration to complete.
  • The aforementioned Notice of Intention to Marry.

Important points to keep in mind

  • In Australia, same-sex marriage is legal.
  • Marriage celebrants can solemnise marriages in Sydney, whether civil or religious, as long as they are Commonwealth-registered.
  • Even if you are not a citizen or permanent resident of Australia, you can marry here.
  • On your wedding day, you and your partner must sign three marriage certificates, as must two witnesses and the celebrant. You will receive a duplicate of the certificate for your records.
  • Within 14 days of your wedding, the celebrant will deliver your marriage paperwork to the registry of births, deaths, and marriages.
  • You should always check the Attorney-Department General's website's Getting Married page to learn more about the legalities of getting married in Sydney.

You can begin preparing for the necessary legal requirements now that you've read these tips. You should prioritise this before moving on to the other items on your checklist. After you've completed the legal requirements, you can begin looking for vendors such as wedding photographers, wedding videographers, wedding celebrants and venues below.
