Why do you insist on getting married? Why don't you just register your relationship and that's it? NSW Registry of Births Deaths & Marriages
You do have a 28-day cooling off period, and you won't get the certificate before. So you probably missed this boat, too.

If you are thinking of applying for a de facto partner visa, you need evidence of your relationship for every month of the past 12 months in all four categories.

If you want to apply for a partner visa based on marriage, you need to be married at the time of application. You still have to prove your relationship is genuine and you have to present your evidence in all four categories.

If you register your relationship, that waives a 12-month relationship requirement, but you still have to prove you're a genuine couple and present evidence in all four categories.

Going back to Australia with only a week left on a student visa is very risky. I'd apply for a partner visa first, and then fly home on a bridging visa B.

EDIT: Nevermind, I was thinking of the 309, not the 820.

Site, have you told us somewhere how much time you have from now before this trip you have planned? If it's less than 28 days, you won't be able to get married or register your relationship before you leave, which means you can't apply for the 820.

Presuming you have less than 28 days left, it sounds to me like there's a good chance you're going to have to apply from offshore. There just doesn't seem to be a way around it for you at this point. It seems like a prospective marriage visa would be the easiest for you from offshore, and then, depending on where you're from, etc., you may or may not be able to get a tourist visa to visit your partner while waiting for your visa to be processed. You would be unable to work during that time.

My suggestion would be to contact Mark Northam here on the forum directly and see if he has any other ideas. You've got yourself into kind of a tight spot here, and the last thing you want to end up doing is accidentally becoming illegal, jeopardizing your future prospects for a legitimate visa.
