Hi there. Alot of the information that you seek can be found from the immigration website.

Firstly read the partner migration booklet

Find all necessary forms from DIAC Department of Immigration & Citizenship

Also this sticky is quite helpful it has lots of suggestions of different types of evidence

It would really be good if you read those links I gave you because some of them provide details on EXACTLY what you need. This is an excerpt from the partner migration book.

What to provide with your Prospective Marriage visa application
When you lodge your application, you must provide:
• completed application form 47SP Application for migration to Australia by a partner and
form 40SP Sponsorship for a partner to migrate to Australia (completed by your sponsor).
These are available from the department’s website Applications and Forms - Visas & Immigration to be
downloaded as PDF files, printed out and filled in, or obtained in hard copy from an
office of the department or Australian mission and filled in.
• if appointing a migration agent or exempt agent or authorised recipient, a completed
form 956 Appointment of a migration agent or exempt agent or other authorised recipient;
• 4 recent passport-size photographs of yourself and 2 recent passport-size photographs
of your sponsor (see page 5);
• certified copies of your passport or travel documents (see page 27 for information on
certified copies);
• proof of your identity (see page 39);
• proof that your sponsor is aged 18 years or over and is an Australian citizen, Australian
permanent resident or eligible New Zealand Citizen (see page 40);
• satisfactory evidence that you and your fiancé(e) have met face to face as adults and
that you are personally known to each other;
• evidence that there is no impediment to you marrying your fiancé(e) (for example and
as appropriate, if either you and/or your fiancé(e) have been previously married or a
previous spouse has died, a certified copy of the divorce decree absolute or the death
certificate of the deceased spouse);
• written statements from both you and your fiancé(e) detailing the history of your
fiancé(e) relationship (for example, when and how you met, when you became
engaged, joint activities, significant events in the relationship) and your future plans
as husband and wife;
• evidence that you intend to marry your fiancé(e) within 9 months of being granted
the visa. Such evidence must be a signed and dated letter (on letterhead) from an
authorised marriage celebrant who will conduct your wedding ceremony. The letter
must include the place and date (or date range) on which the planned marriage
ceremony may take place. If you plan to marry in Australia, the celebrant must confirm
that a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) for you and your fiancé(e) has been lodged
with them (see page 33 for further details about NOIMs);
• evidence that both you and your fiancé(e) are both of marriageable age, which means
usually you must both be 18 years of age when you marry. If either you or your
fiancé(e) is aged under 18 years, you must provide a court order from an Australian
magistrate authorising the marriage;
• evidence that you and your fiancé(e) genuinely intend to live in a spouse relationship.
The department knows that it is often difficult to provide evidence of your intention in
the future to live with your fiancé(e) in a spouse relationship. The required evidence
depends on the circumstances of each case. If you have evidence that relates to the
financial, household, social context aspects of, and commitment to, your relationship,
you should submit this with your Prospective Marriage visa application (see
pages 40–41 for guidance about similar such requirements for partner visas).
Note: At the very least, you should submit two statements from family and/or friends
who are aware of your intended marriage and can attest to your genuine
intention to live together in an ongoing spouse relationship (for guidance about
these statements, see ‘Statutory Declarations’ on page 27);
• where possible, completed health and character checks (see pages 20–21).
You must pay the Visa Application Charge (see page 26).

As to you being denied a visa before depends on the reasons you were denied. They may not apply anymore.
