Marriages and civil partnerships

What you need to do before your ceremony

Other documents to give the registrar:

  • Read about the other documents you must give us
  • If you are subject to immigration control you may require a marriage visa
  • If you were born after 1983 your passport may be required
  • Documents should be originals, not photocopies
  • If any item is not in English, a certified translation must be provided
If you think there may be a delay in giving us these details, please contact us.

Registrars have a statutory duty to report any marriage they suspect has been registered for the sole purpose of evading immigration controls.
