Legal Requirements as set out in the Marriage Act 1961

Before the Ceremony:

Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) to be completed 1 month & 1 day before your marriage. This document lasts for 18 months.

I need to sight original copies of:
  • Birth Certificates
  • Decree Absolute (if divorced)
  • Death Notice (if widowed)
  • Foreign Passport (if born Overseas)

 

 

Form 14 Declaration - Statutory Declaration

I usually get you to complete this at your rehearsal. This document is where you declare that you are of legal age and there is no reason as to why you should not be married.

 

After the Wedding Ceremony

Certificate of Marriage - requires 2 Witness who are 18 years or older

Marriage Register - requires 2 Witness who are 18 years or older

Certificate of Marriage - requires 2 Witness who are 18 years or older  

 

Application for a Marriage Certificate

(This Application is optional)
To get an official copy of your Certificate of Marriage you need to complete this application. If you complete the application (with payment details) I will submit it for you with your other documents. This will reduce delay and avoid having to provide three forms of ID.

I will supply all Forms to be completed.
