Having trouble locating your birth certificate?
What happens after our ceremony?
After your wedding day, I will promptly send in your documents to be registered at Births, Deaths and Marriages in the relevant state, along with your application for your official Marriage certificate at a cost of $56 including postage – you will need this to change your name or for any official applications.
In certain cases, your official certificate can be expressed if needed for postings or travel-please ask.
Or if you wish to apply yourself, please go to Access Canberra.
If married in NSW, please go to BDM Click Here for further information.
