Ceremonies abroad

The rules governing marriages in other countries are complex and vary from country to country.

We recommend you contact the authorities in the country in which you plan to marry to make sure you fulfil all of their requirements for a legal marriage. You can find contact details of foreign embassies, high commissions and consulates in the UK on the GOV.UK website (opens new window).

It may be necessary for you to complete procedures with your local register office.
