Is the wedding certificate given to the couple at the ceremony a legal certificate?

It is a commemorative certificate and cannot be used for change of name.  The celebrant registers the marriage documentation (within 14 days of the ceremony) with the state’s Registry of Birth, Deaths and Marriages.  BDM will issue an official marriage certificate on application (a fee applies).
