Hello,

My partner (who is an Australian) and I are planning on having a destination wedding in Sri Lanka (which is where i come from originally).

Would someone be kind of enough to explain what the procedure would be to legally register the marriage in Victoria, Australia? FYI, I'll be changing my name and taking my fiance's name.

Thank you for your time!

Hi Sabby

You may not need to register your marriage if your marriage is legally valid in your country. As below:

Marriage legality

If you were married in a country other than Australia and that marriage is valid in that country, generally it will be recognised as valid under Australian law.

There are some exceptions, such as same-sex, underage or polygamous marriages, which are not accepted in Australia.
