This is the street view on google maps of the where the births, deaths and marriages registrar is in Auckland (99 Albert St)     (,174.763279,3a,90y,292h,90t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sxd-En5IErgCL1tLdY-QH8A!2e0!6m1!1e1)

Fromt he information I could find you might actually need to get married at the District court and not the registrars office.

Here is the government website that deals with marriages

You will also need to check on the requirements of your own country in regards to getting married overseas.

There are two registry offices in Auckland – one in the CBD (99 Albert St), and one in the suburb of Manukau (20 Lambie Drive).  I’m not sure what the buildings look like, I’m afraid.

Information pertaining to getting married in NZ can be found on the Department of Internal Affairs website:

ETA: On second thought, I agree with PP – I think those are probably just offices, with the actual ceremonies taking place at a courthouse.

Lavendar0:  Why not get the licence and then hire a celebrant and get married somewhere else? There are millions of pretty locations in Auckland.

This is the rotunda in Albert park

I agree with PP, why not find a celebrant and get married somewhere else! There are so many beautiful beaches and parks around here, there is no need to get married in an ugly building (unless you really want to).

There’s loads of info on the process, including how to apply from overseas, here:


ETA: I know in a lot of other countries you have to have the legal/civil ceremony in a registry before you can have your church/location wedding. NZ is different – there is no need to do two, you can do it all at the same time in your church/location, as long as you have an official celebrant.

Lavendar0:  No problem! I’m sure you’ll find the perfect spot for it.
