Do I need Marriage Witnesses?

You need to nominate two witnesses who are 18 years old or above who will sign your Marriage Certificate following the ceremony. This is a nice job to give to someone important to get them involved in your ceremony. The witnesses can be friends or family, they should ideally be known to you and if they don’t speak English, an interpreter must be present. They do not need to show me any ID and they do not need to be Australian citizens. I cannot provide witnesses for you.

If you are unable to provide witnesses yourself, I can book two people to fulfil this required role, at extra charge. Ask me for details.
