Marriage certificate question

Wed Sep 08, 2010 9:18 am

Hello!

Just wondering when collecting the marriage certificate from the office of BDM, do DH and I need to go together or can I go by myself? I was thinking I could go myself as I am changing my name but I just want to double check.
Thanks :D

How long did you wait or is this something I need to call the registry about?

I went in after we got back from the honeymoon, probably about 3 weeks. My celebrant lodged it 5 days after we were married.

Yep, you can go in by yourself as you are listed on the certificate.
