Civil and religious marriages are both legally binding in Australia and can take place in any location. Australian marriages are widely recognised by other countries. If in doubt about the legality in a particular country, check with the relevant embassy or consulate. Some European countries require an Apostille Stamp on the marriage certificate to authenticate it for registration in their home country.
♥ Information on Apostille Stamps can be found on the Australian government Smart Traveller website: Click here

The following documents are required by both parties:
♥ A valid passport.
♥ An original birth certificate and Drivers Licence
♥ Adoption certificate, if applicable
♥ Change of name documentation, if applicable
If either party has been married before they will also need:
♥ A death certificate in the case of widowhood or a decree absolute if they have been divorced

ALL documents must be in English or have an official (NAATI) translation into English. In Australia this can only be done by someone registered with the National Accreditation Authority for Translators. www.naati.com.au
