Registering for Same Sex Marriage

On 7 December 2017, the Australian Parliament passed the Marriage Amendment (Definition and Religious Freedoms) Act 2017 to change the definition of marriage and provide for marriage equality in Australia. The right to marry in Australia will no longer be determined by sex or gender.

All couples intending to marry must give an authorised celebrant at least one month’s notice prior to the solemnisation of the marriage by completing the Notice of Intended Marriage form. (NOIM)

To register for a Same Sex Marriage at the Perth Marriage Office, please use the Online Portal and we will register your details to allow you to be amongst the first in Western Australia to marry under the new laws.
