Cyprus Brides - do i need to register my intent to marry!


Would be really grateful if someone could clarify if i need to register my intent to marry at my local register office which i have just found out today( only 6 weeks till wedding !) Also I was informed we could get a cerfificate of no imediment at a solicitors but now heard this has to be from local register office too! To say I am now panicing would be an understatement. Help anyone? image

    Hi, I don't know where you are based, but no I don't have to register my intent to marry with the UK registry office, I have to do this with the Town Hall in Cyprus.

    I need to get my Stat Dec documents witnessed by a Solicitor, which should cost £5 per document, then when in Cyprus I need to get to the town hall one morning pre-wedding to get a Form B, which as I am marrying in Church need to give to the Church in our pre-wedding interview.

    You do not need to register intent in this country as you are not marrying in this country xx

    You do need to register your intent if you're in Scotland though. You need to fill out a marriage licence form which can be downloaded online and then handed into your local registry office along with your birth certificates and a cheque for £60! xx

    Yes that was my original understanding of what I needed to do! But read somewhere that i neede to register at my local register office and when I phoned them Iwas given the wrong information by an obviously misinformed member of staff!. Her boss later phoned me to confirm that i did not need to contact them. I was so cross she had me panicing that I had left it too late and may have to postpone my wedding !!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the post very reassuring all the best for your wedding. image
