Hi, there is no court marriage as such but you have to file an application along with documents before the Sub-Registrar and on the same day both of the parties must be present before the Sub-Registrar.

Both the partners should be present at the time of presenting the notice of intent.

Both the intending partners should provide document to prove, their Identity, age of majority and address.

Marriages are registered in the jurisdictional Sub Registrar office of either of the partners.

Hope, this info is useful for you.

For filing notice of intent, both the partners presence is not required.
For requirements and  documents that are required to be submitted  for marriage registration it will depend on the form of marriage and also the act under which you desire it to  be registered, the details can be seen from the list being affixed in the  notice board dangling at the entrance of any registrar office.  
Now since the registrar's offices are interlinked, you can  choose any registrar office near  your vicinity.

1. A joint application to the office of the registrar is called the notice of intent whereupon a notice is issued to the permanent residential address of both the applicants.

2. If there is a POA executed in favour of one partner by the other partner the former can be allowed to represent the latter.

3. The documents which can prove the age and residence of the applicants such as birth certificate, voter ID, etc are required to be annexed with the application.
