Once you are legally married, you want to have the papers to prove it. Here`s how to get them: Most basic runaway services last 10 minutes. They include a welcome message, the exchange of legal vows and a few concluding words. Usually, a limousine/car will pick you up from your hotel and, if necessary, go to the licensing office to pick up your marriage certificate (you can pick it up yourself before your wedding day if you wish) before heading to the chapel. There`s not much to worry about when organizing the legal part of your Vegas wedding. You only need two things: However, if this is not the case, a “registration” of your marriage abroad, if one or both of you are British citizens, can be done by filing the marriage certificate with the General Register Office (GRO). This registration can be done at any time after your wedding ceremony.
In order for your marriage certificate to be filed, you must specifically contact the GRO in the UK and the British Embassy in Los Angeles, as this is not an automatic process, and indicate that you wish to file your marriage certificate with the GRU. You can then order a marriage certificate for around £12 online from the clerk`s website. We arrive in Vegas on Sunday and get married on Wednesday. We will receive our marriage certificate on Monday morning so that it is ready.

I did everything online, and then went to the courthouse with the reference number to confirm the ID, etc. We got married the next day and had a copy of the marriage certificate If you are a UK citizen and entering into a marriage or civil partnership abroad, you may need certain documents from the UK government, such as a Certificate of Prohibition (CNI). If a British citizen marries in the UK, the marriage is “registered” with the GRO, but if a UK citizen marries outside the UK, the marriage can only be “registered” (filed) with the GRO. These deposited marriage certificates are kept so that if you need a copy of your marriage certificate, you can apply for it from the GRO instead of returning to the country where you got married. In Vegas, almost anything goes, 24/7 groups still exist, but to curb mistakes and the biggest “fear of beer,” the marriage licensing office closes at midnight. If you end up thinking, why not, after hitting the jackpot, it`s open seven days a week, including holidays from 8am to midnight.
So plenty of time to take the plunge. All you need is a marriage certificate that you can present at the chapel – and that`s easy to get. You are responsible for determining which visas you, your partner and your friends or family need. Do this before booking any part of your wedding or arranging a marriage certificate. As funny as it sounds, getting married abroad can seem pretty scary. It`s natural to worry that while filling out the paperwork for a wedding close to home can be a pain, then planning a wedding abroad must be a nightmare; but Vegas is not a place like any other. Unlike in the UK, you don`t leave the end of the ceremony with your certificate (where you say I give it to the head of the family and give it to the woman for all lolks). No, your agent must submit the documents to the Clark County Clerk`s Office within 10 days of your ceremony. You can then order the marriage certificate for $15 (£12). You can pick it up online, by mail or in person if you`re still in town. Here`s your checklist. Talking about visas and legal paperwork is not sexy.
But it`s important. I think the certified marriage certificate arrived the moment we came back and then used it to send all my documents such as passport, driver`s license, pay slip to work, etc. After the wedding ceremony, you will receive a signed marriage certificate to take home and another copy will be submitted to the county clerk.

The marriage certificate must first be sent by the Las Vegas Wedding Bureau to the British Embassy in Los Angeles.
The British Consulate General will then forward the certificate to the GRO in the UK, along with an accompanying note. As soon as the documents have been received by the GRO, you will be informed. The documents will then be kept at the GRO and from that moment on, a copy of your marriage certificate may be requested if necessary.
