Can you explain there is any procedure to apply marriage certificate in Kerala or tamilnadu,India.

I am currently working in Australia and my marriage have been planed to happen in November 2015. The bride is from pathinamthitta district and my native place is Kollam Kerala . Now i am coming to Kerala in the month of June for my engagement .
I asked my uncle to arrange marriage registration at the time of engagement and he inquired about the procedure in kollam registration office.
The process which they explained was very socking and unreasonable. They are asking NOC from bride district and they said it will take approximately 90 days for complete marriage registration process and to get marriage certificate. Also there is no online registration service available in State of Kerala. I am coming for one week leave and i cannot wait up to 90 days.
We both are Hindu and we are ready to do court marriage in Chennai if the registration is possible in Chennai.
We are ready to produce all the documents with attestation.

There is any possible for same day court marriage in Chennai Tamilnadu through online.
If possible, i no need to come for India for my Court marriage registration for the visa purpose.
If it is not possible in Chennai, Let me know there is any possibility to complete marriage registration through online anywhere in India?
If possible,How long it will take to get online marriage certificate?
Under which act our marriage will be registered ?
Whether It will be valid for visa process?
