- Can I have a symbolic ceremony or a vows renewal with no paperwork involved?

- What is an Apostille stamp and where can I get it from?

- The documents you will send us must be authenticated for use abroad. This is also called legalization of the document. Authentication means that a seal is placed on the document which will be recognized in the foreign country where the document will be used and that is the Apostille stamp.

For European countries please contact your Ministry of Foreign Affairs and for the rest countries, please contact your Department of State of your country.

 

- How many days before the wedding you need our paperwork?

20 days before the wedding, you have to fax them or email them to check them and tell you if they are ok or if something is missing. If you send them without our confirmation and the papers are not correct, the wedding might be cancelled.

 

- If for some reason our papers are not in your hands, what happens?

The wedding will be either cancelled or you can have a symbolic ceremony which is exactly as the regular wedding ceremony but it will not be legal, it will be like vows renewal but your guests will not know the difference.

 

- What is Legalisation?

Legalisation simply means confirming that a signature, seal or stamp appearing on a document is genuine. It does not mean that the content of a document is accurate or that the Foreign & Commonwealth office approves of the content.
