It is necessary for you to lodge a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) a minimum of 1 month and 1 day prior to your wedding day, but the NOIM can be completed up to 18 months prior.


It is recommended that this is done as soon as you have set the date so as to avoid disappointment, because good celebrants can be booked up many months in advance.


To complete the NOIM you will need to bring with you the original and a photocopy of all the required documents:


  • Birth Certificates

  • Divorce/Death Nullity Certificates

  • Deed Poll or Change of Name Certificates

  • Current Overseas Passport

  • Court Orders

  • Minor Consent Forms

  • Citizenship Certificate

  • Statutory Declarations

  • Any other relevant documentation
