LEGAL REQUIREMENTS - don't worry, it sounds more complicated than it is!

To make sure that your wedding is legal and valid, there are some legal bits and pieces that need to be completed.  They are nothing for you to worry about and I'll guide you through them as we work together to create your perfect day.  Initially however, you will need to complete a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) at least one month prior to the date of your marriage.  There are a few documents which you will have to bring with you so we can complete the NOIM correctly:

* Drivers licence or photographic identification

* Original Birth certificate or extract

* Passport stating place of birth

* If you have been married before you will also require either your divorce certificate or death certificate

* If you have changed your name by deed poll, thenI also require the Official Change of Name document

* All documents must be in English or include an official English translation

* You will also need to sign a declaration just prior to the marriage indicating that there is no legal reason why you can't be married
