NSW Marriage Office


No Waiting!

Would you like to be married in as little as one month?

The legally required notice period to be married in Australia is one month so you can be married that quickly.

The government registry office requires appointments & interviews before your wedding, but the NSW Marriage Office does everything electronically so you can marry as soon as your legal one month notice is met.

What Is A Registry Wedding?


Registry weddings in NSW are much smaller and simpler than personalized weddings.

You can marry at our office in Newcastle, in the Hunter Valley or in Tamworth. We can also come to your location, so you can choose the location of your registry wedding in the vicinity of Newcastle - your garden, a park or the beach. 

You might choose to have just your witnesses attend with you, or invite a few others with your numbers limited to 10.  There are no props or styling such as arches or aisles.

Registry weddings follow a prescribed legal script and take around 20 minutes. NSW Marriage Office ceremonies are performed during office hours, Monday to Friday.  

Who Is A Registry Wedding For?


For those wishing to marry in a hurry, with no fuss, a registry wedding is ideal.

Often registry weddings suit those getting married if they've been married before, as these ceremonies are far simpler and quicker.

If you need to marry with a visa in mind, a registry wedding can be your simple solution.

Those who are planning a non-legal wedding overseas and want to formalise their marriage in Australia have a registry wedding ceremony.  Similarly, for couples with no religious beliefs – or different religious beliefs – a registry wedding is a no-fuss and secular option.  

Small Wedding Simplicity

If you'd like a simple legal wedding or a small wedding with your closest few, we provide registry wedding ceremonies at our office in Newcastle, in the Hunter Valley and in Tamworth. And if you'd like to marry at your own Newcastle location, we can come to you.
