I want our marriage to be legal though?

A celebrant ceremony is NOT a legally binding ceremony. For a couple to legalise their marriage, they MUST book an appointment to visit their local registry office to register their marriage. The couple will not need to say their vows or exchange their wedding rings when signing the marriage register. There is NO LEGAL REQUIREMENT for the registrar to attend the couple’s wedding venue or be present at Celebrant Ceremonies.
