Getting married

Marriage certificates and registration

All marriage ceremonies performed in the Northern Territory are registered with the Births, Deaths and Marriages office.

Marriage registration

Your marriage celebrant will send all the relevant marriage documents to the Births, Deaths and Marriages office for registration.

You need to allow three days from when your documents reach the office for your marriage to be registered.
