MARRIAGE SOLEMNISATION AND REGISTRATION
For couples who need only the minimum legal requirements to be married or for couples who require their marriage to be registered in Australia prior or to or following a “non-registered ceremony” overseas, perhaps as part of a holiday package, in Bali or Thailand for example. The Notice of Intended Marriage form is signed and lodged at our initial meeting at my office in Donnybrook and the subsequent solemnisation would normally be performed after the prescribed minimum waiting period of one month.
There is no formal "ceremony" involved. The marriage is solemnised according to law overlooking the forest at my home in Donnybrook, rings are exchanged if required and the legal documents are signed then filed with the Department of Births, Deaths and Marriages. The whole process takes about 15 minutes. It is ideal if you do not plan to have more than a few guests present (no more than six) other than the two witnesses you are required to provide on the day of your marriage. Alternatively the solemnisation could be performed at your home or an agreed venue but travel costs would be added.
