Marriage Certificates Types

How to arrange to get them.

Your Certificate of  Marriage

Immediately following your ceremony you will receive the Australian Commonwealth Government,  Certificate of Marriage. (Please keep this in a secure place as it can not be replaced).

On the back of this certificate, it states - "Under section 45 of the Marriage Act 1961 this certificate is conclusive evidence that your marriage has been solemnised in accordance with that section. It is an important document and you should keep it in a safe place with other official documents."

However, some organisation may not accept this certificate as proof of marriage because the certificate may not be able to be used as evidence of identity.

Again on the back of the certificate, it states - "This certificate does not provide conclusive evidence of the identity of either of the parties to your marriage. In some situations, you may be asked to produce a registered copy of your marriage certificate obtained from the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages in the State or territory in which you were married."

Your registered Marriage Certificate

Your Registered Marriage Certificate can only be issued by Births, Deaths and Marriages once your marriage has been registered.

We will register your marriage (on-line) the same day as your ceremony so you can pick up your certificate or order it online the same day - if required. This is quicker than the government registry officer can provide.

Applying for your Registered Marriage Certificate

Birth, Deaths and Marriages NSW are the official government record keeper and as such the only organisation who can issue your Registered Marriage Certificate.

They currently charge $56 to do this.

There are three ways of obtaining a registered certificate;

a) On-line

b) In person, by visiting one of their offices. Because we register your marriage online - straight after your ceremony, you are able to pick it up the same day. You can't even do that if you are married at the Marriage Registry Office ;). You can download an application form here.

c) By post, you can do this by completing an application form and posting it directly to BDM.
You can download an application form here.

You can apply at any time, after your ceremony, for a certificate and can order any number of certificates you like.

Here is a link to BDM's NSW site for all details including; current pricing, proof of identification required to get the certificate, delay times and office locations.

    “If you’re after a Simple Ceremony, I’d love to help – and make it easy.”

    We're always being asked this because our fee is so much lower than anyone else.

    What we've done is stream-line the boring bits of getting married.

    We've introduced things, such as; 

    • on-line booking
    • on-line paperwork
    • no interviews
    • registration of marriage same day on-line
    • fixed ceremony locations


    As a result of this, we can offer an all inclusive price, well below the Marriage Registry Office... 

    BUT, what we haven't "stream-lined" is the essence, meaning and importance of your very special day.

    Having been a Celebrant since 2004, I understand that your wedding is far more important than "efficiencies".


    Your ceremony is a very special moment in your lives, one you will remember forever. This is central to our service. We will ensure, you have a ceremony you will remember forever.
