Marriages and civil partnerships

Other documents to give the registrar

  • Read about the other documents you must give us - registering a marriage or registering a civil partnership
  • 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.
