Once all legal paperwork has been lodged (usually within two weeks after the marriage), registered copies of the Marriage Certificate can be obtained from the WA Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages or any local court-house.
The Perth Marriage Office is open 7 Days – Monday to Sunday, for legally recognised weddings in a registry office format.
