Are you 100% sure you meet the criteria for the visa? Having known each other for 6 months only will be fun to convince the department - your application needs to be more watertight then a ducks......

Is the wedding legally recognised in Australia? A PMV would have potentially been much easier for you to get...

Yes, you'll want some hard evidence. With the amount of people marrying just for visas (that doesn't work), marrying someone within 3 months of meeting them then almost immediately applying for a partner visa will raise some serious red flags. You'll want to handle that well from the start.

It was a traditional arranged marriage

Yes, it is recognised
that counts you out of a PMV potential.

You need a strong application and as such would be doing yourself a favour by using a Migration Agent that's listed on the MARA register. If they aren't on there then they aren't qualified to deal with you application.
