Requirements to get Married in the Philippines

Hi, I'm from Australia and would like to go to the Philippines soon to marry my Philippine fiancee I have been with for one year including living together for 6 months.

What are the requirements to get married in the Philippines and what will we need to do to prepare?

What documents will we need?
Medical Tests etc?
Written consent of Parents if Younger than 25
What my fiancee will need, ie ID, Birth Cert etc?
What I need, Passport, Birth Cert etc?

Once we have everything, where do we go there to register our marriage and would we need to book in advance etc?

Also, do I need to obtain any documents to bring back with me to process her visa application from Australia?

As for marrying in the Phillipines, you'll need to have a look at their requirements and then for a visa, though Australia will recognise a legitimate marriage and you'll need a marriage certificate, there are other matters you need to consider.

For instance if your living together has not been in recent times, say either side of the marriage for a total of six months, you could have a problem and ideally you should be having your fiance apply for a PMV and then get married once she comes here with that visa granted.
