Did you know that you don't have to be either an Australian citizen or a permanent resident of Australia to get married in Australia? However, if you are not an Australian citizen or permanent resident of Australia and you want to live in Australia after your marriage, you should find out about getting a visa.
To get married in Australia you must -
not be married
not be marrying a parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, brother or sister
be at least 18 years old, unless a court has approved a marriage where 1 person is 16-18 years old
understand what marriage means and freely agree to marry
use specific words during the ceremony
give a notice of intended marriage form to an authorised marriage celebrant at least 1 month and no more than 18 months before your wedding
The Australian Government's Attorney-General’s Department lists all the information that concerns getting married in Australia in easy to understand language together with links to all the required forms: Get married or you can contact me, Lauretta Wright, Authorised Marriage Celebrant.
I am very willing to travel, and hope I am able to travel as much as your ceremony requires. Let us together gather #WrightWhereLoveIs, where ever that is! #WrightCelebrations #LaurettaWrightCelebrant #FraserCoastCelebrant
