What will I get?

You will receive a government-issued UK Marriage Certificate. These are officially known as Certified Copies, as they are issued based on the original that was stored when the marriage originally took place. This does not mean that we send you a photocopy! You will get a brand-new document, as good as the original. The only difference is that the date of issue will be different.

Will the marriage certificate be valid for use in the UAE?

If you require the marriage certificate to present to the UAE authorities, they will require it to be attested before it can be used. This is a process that ensures that the UAE Embassy in London has seen and verified the certificate before it is stamped. You will require the certificate to be attested if you intend to use the certificate for Visa Applications or prior to the birth of a child, as well as many other official purposes in the UAE. We can arrange for your new certificate to be attested once it has been issued - just order this service alongside the certificate itself.

Marriage Certificate Service

If you are ordering a duplicate British Marriage Certificate, you will receive a replacement certificate reproduced from the General Register Office central archive. Typically this is an exact duplicate of the original archive certificate, however in some cases, where the handwritten document is deemed to be illegible, a typed version of the original will be supplied. 

The service speed will determined how quickly this certificate will be issued. Standard service orders will be completed within 10-12 working days, priority service orders are handled within 3 working days. 

Please note that the service speed relates to the production of the certificate only and does not include any time to attest or deliver the document. The time stated is based on UK working days which are different to those in the UAE. 

Attestation Service

If you are optionally ordering the attestation of this Marriage Certificate, following the reissue of the document we will perform 3 additional services on the certificate: 

  1. Legalisation at the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO)
  2. Attestation at the UAE Embassy in London
  3. Attestation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the UAE


The service costs does not include delivery of the document. Delivery is added when you go through the checkout process and is charged per order rather than per document. 

What happens when I order this service?

When you place your order, you will receive a confirmation email with your order reference. Our specialist team will personally check all of the information in your request. If there is any additional information required, or something needs clarification, we will get in touch as soon as possible.

Once the request information is ready, we will search the necessary archives in order to locate the correct record for you. We automatically cover a 5 year search each side of your given event date if required.
