Default British passport renewal with name change due to marriage overseas

hoping someone may be able to help...

I am about to renew my british passport and would like to have it issued in my newly married name. We got married in Fiji and I have a marriage certificate from there but obviously dont have an Australian marriage certificate.

Does anyone know if I need to also provide a certificate of name change in order to have my british passport issued in my married name?

TIA
