Yes, bookings with the Ballarat Marriage Registry are essential. We operate as an 'appointment only' Marriage Registry and our office is closed with the exception of set Wednesdays per month for Elopement Wednesdays. All visitation to the propert is by appointment only.
A Notice of Intended Marriage form must be lodged at least one month prior to the planned date of marriage, and no longer that 18 months prior. Couples are supported through this requirement step by step.
Both parties to the marriage will be required to provide an Original Birth Certificate document and Drivers Licence/Proof of Age Card, alternatively a Passport is accepted.
If either party to the marriage has been previously married, evidence that the marriage has ended will be required by way of a Divorce Order or a Death Certificate.
Couples will be guided through these requirements and will be required to bring all documents with them to their marriage appointment, failure to do so will result in the marriage not being able to take place. If ID documents are not in English, Couples will need to provide NAATI Certified Translated copies plus the original.
No, Couples will need to arrange two people to attend their Marriage appointment with them to act as Official Witnesses and sign the legal documentation. Witnesses must be 18+ years old.
Where a party to the marriage has tested positive for COVID19, we ask that you let us know as soon as possible and an alternative date/time will be worked out for your marriage. Please tell your guests/witnesses we kindly request they do not attend if they have COVID19 or are experiencing any Cold/Flu like symptoms. All ceremonies are conducted in an intimate indoor setting, people who are unwell will be directly impacting on the health of others. Thank you for your understanding.
Couples are welcome to have one of their witnesses at a Legals Only Elopement, or one of the guests at a Ceremonial Elopement take photographs. Alternatively couples are most welcome to engage a Professional Photographer. We are able to provide referrals for Photographers who offer shorter photography sessions if needed.
Couples who book a Legals Only Elopement are permitted two official witnesses (18+) to attend their marriage. Couples who book a Ceremonial Elopement are permitted up to 8 guests (including their 2 witnesses) and children are welcome in those guest numbers.
Unfortunately food and drink is not permitted inside Ballarat Marriage Registry at Llanfyllin House.
Visitors to Ballarat Marriage Registry at Llanfyllin House are not permitted to throw any form of confetti, eco confetti, flower petals whether fresh or dried, rice or any similar products on the property. Bubbles or bubble blowers are not permitted.
Although we are big animal lovers, sadly pets cannot attend marriage appointments with their people. A Trained Assistance Animal such as a Guide Dog is welcome.
It is requested that Couples, Witnesses & permitted guests (depending on booking type) arrive at the Ballarat Marriage Registry 5 mins prior to the time of their marriage appointment. Their will very likely be scheduled marriages taking place before and after yours. Upon arrival please make yourself comfortable in the 'Sitting Room'. Late arrivals may jeopardise the time left available to proceed with the planned marriage.
Every Couple is very welcome to choose to exchange personal vows after saying the legal vows which will be provided, regardless if they have booked a Legals Only or Ceremonial Elopement.
Absolutely, regardless if Couples have booked a Legals Only or Ceremonial Elopement, all marrying couples may choose to exchange wedding rings.
As all our marriages & ceremonies are presented in English, if either party to the marriage or their witnesses do not speak or understand English, the Couple must arrange for an Interpreter at their own expense. Ballarat Marriage Registry must be notified a minimum of 3 weeks prior to the ceremony if an Interpreter will be required and relevant processes followed. Couples will be guided through this scenario.
Couples are encouraged to be as 'dressed up' or 'casual' as makes them happy! Wedding dresses are welcome, so are jeans and a t-shirt! 😊
Couples who arrive to their marriage appointment, where one or both parties to the marriage appear under the influence of alcohol or other substances will not be permitted to marry at the booked marriage appointment time. There are no refunds for marriage appointments forfeited for this reason.
