While the wedding couple may not need any documents at the wedding ceremony your two witnesses will.
They will need proof of ID, passport works just fine, and they will also need to give their home address.
We recommend that they write their address down so that it is easier for the minister to complete the certificate without having to ask your witness to repeat themselves or have to spell it out.
