Just wow. Chess got in touch with me well into the evening (when most people would be getting ready for bed) and had the documents done for me and my missus. The whole process is fantastic from the getgo, they're sticklers for paperwork and having the right things on-hand. We got everything we needed to have our wedding within less than 12 hours from first contact. I cannot recommend these people enough and I highly urge anyone looking at a marriage visa to go straight through these guys - they will answer all questions no matter how obvious, and will make sure you have everything needed before you book a wedding. :D

We wanted to express our heartfelt gratitude to Melbourne Private Marriage Registry for making our wedding day memorable! Chess was very warm in welcoming us, she was so kind and made us feel comfortable, we couldn't thank her enough! We were lucky to have her as our marriage celebrant. It was the most amazing wedding ceremony one could ever have. Also, many thanks to Merryn and Joanna for answering all our emails and explained to us everything we need to know. Overall experience was absolutely beautiful! -A & M

What a great experience we had at Melbourne Marraige Registry. The venue was beautiful and our celebrant made it that little bit more special, having our daughter included. We were able to get some really nice photos and I would highly recommend this. (Even better that it’s cheaper than getting a celebrant in tye gardens etc)

PRIDE

Welcome to Victoria's Pride Registry Weddings!

Melbourne Private Marriage Registry marries and welcomes ALL consenting couples who choose our legal marriage and ceremony services and we have been conducting marriages for people from all over the world for 14 years now! So let’s just call us the ‘All People Marriage Registry’!  The choices of words on this page simply let you know that YOU ARE WELCOME and our team cannot wait to celebrate your special day with you. Oh and don’t forget that your four-legged friends (canine or otherwise!) are also welcome to come join you for your special day! 🙂

We started our Privately run Marriage Registry in 2010 as the first private registry of our kind in Australia to offer Victorian couples a fabulous alternative to the Government’s Victorian Marriage Registry in Spring Street, with both the short and long-term goal to offer ALL couples the wedding they had always wished for and always dreamed of having.  We waited years for this, and finally on Friday 8 December, 2017, the Same-sex Marriage Bill was signed into law by the Governor-General. LGBTQIA+ couples who had already married overseas would finally have their relationships recognised in Australia from midnight that night, and the first same-sex marriage ceremonies could occur from the 9th of January 2018.

Our fabulous celebrants are always available to assist you to lodge your Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) form. Under Australian law it is mandatory that a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) – ‘Form 13 (Regulation 38)’ is lodged with your celebrant no less than one month and no more than 18 months, from the proposed marriage date. If you would like to have your ceremony at the Melbourne Private Marriage Registry, then it is easy to lodge your NOIM with us to be married in one month’s time! Call us today on (03) 9820 1119 to book a time to lodge your Notice or to get a copy of a step-by-step guide to getting married with us here at our fabulous Award Winning Wedding Ceremony rooms.

OVERSEAS CLIENTS
For overseas guests who plan to marry in Victoria, Melbourne Private Marriage Registry can provide the perfect wedding ceremony and venue as a very affordable service for you.
