Hey guys, I'm an Indian national (living in the UK), planning to get married to my girlfriend who is Russian. We plan to have a religious ceremony (Muslim wedding) in India. This is to happen in about 2 months, since I could not get proper advice from lawyers, I've decided to post the following questions on here (

First of all, I would like to know, if we need to have a registered marriage since one of us is not an Indian. If yes, what papers would she need to furnish for the registered marriage? and what the procedure to apply at the Registrar Office would be like?

Secondly, If we can have Religious Ceremony, do we still need some papers to show in order to be able to get married and later to obtain a marriage certificate?

I have read several forums which confuse me a bit. Anyone who has gone through this or even someone who knows someone who has been through this has any minute knowledge, I would appreciate every bit of information I get from you guys.

In general, a registered marriage holds documentary weight. I should ask a cousin who did this. But, I think he married the girl in Russia. Too bad he was disowned..
