Another Marriage thread! Yes, it looks as if it is happening for me, probably in December in Chennai, and I have some questions...
  1. What is the procedure at Indian register office wedding. I haven't even been to a British one for about twenty years, but I understand that, here these days, you can have as much or as little ceremony as you want. I'm marrying a Christian, so I'm not going to get that Temple wedding, but I want to get Nadaswaram+Tavil players, will I be able to do that?
  2. Never-Married Certificate. My fiance has enquired and they want this from UK. No such thing here! What do people do?
  3. Birth Proof. (you can see me: I must have been born ) Passport will do?

Precedure is simple.

- Go to the register office in the locality of your bride (with her residence proof)
- Give a notice of marriage, to the registrar, which would be displayed in their notice board for a minimum of 30 days.
- After the 30 days period go to the office and register marriage by signing in the register of marriages
- Get a certificate printed in a stamp paper (if no one to take a print out, get it typed) through one of the vendors near the registrar office for a marriage contract, and get it signed off by registrar.

The please DO NOT kiss the bride

Wish you all the very best Nick. On the never married certificate, I shall let someone with a legal background comment. If it was me, I would have just printed a certificate in my name and given to that registrar in Mylapore

Thanks, Sudheer
Maybe Mike will certify that I couldn't possible be married, or I wouldn't be spending so much time on this site! Anyway, yes: anyone with better experience on this one please?

congrats nick
dont forget that if some one made any claim in 30 days against your marriage notice then you have to clear that problems ,so it may take another 30 days , i am just jocking
and the never married certificate is not required if you state unmarried in your application form , and if you state divorced then you have to produce proof ,of it .

and for the leagal proceadings never married certificate is a self attested affidevit which you have to notorise with a Notory .

in kerala for registering you you need to pay 3 Rs and for the for final round 7 rs as the fees , i thinkit may be the same there in chennai too.so keep that money with you ,

it is not really nessessory to have any vendors or advocates with you , but it is better if you r too much shy for the first time , and most important thing is ,here we need 3 witnesse who need to sign in both 1st and 30th day in the application and in the register . so dont bring any one who is not available for both these days.


all the best

birth certificates are issued by the loccal administration body-corporation office - please make it sure that your fiance /spouse have the same date of birth in both passport and birth certificate.

Nick they may insist on the never married certificate even though this doesn't officially exist!
I had to go through this rigmarole for registering my marriage here in the Netherlands!
The upshot was I went to the British Embassy in Amsterdam held my right hand in the air swore I had never been married before and the Embassy issued me an official looking bit of paper that satisfied the authorities here in Holland the cost was around 30 quid!!

You may also have to get your birth certificate endorsed by the folks in London yep I was asked to have my birth certificate authenticated by an department in London that specialises in this! Cost 40 quid. You might want to get this done whilst you are in London but beware these authentications have a time limit on them of three months I believe!

Comical but true, check this out against the current situation in India!

Oh and by the way congratulations

Hi Nick
Congratulation.Others answered your question.
For Nadaswaram+Tavil players you can"t have them at Register office.
You can have reception or party after wedding,
as its norm ppl have music program,you can have Nadaswaram+Tavil.
If you go for temple wedding also ,these days they ask Never-Married Certificate,&Birth Proof.

Cheers
Radz
