Photocopy of a Registration of Marriage

  • Photocopies are rarely needed by citizens and are, by law, for restricted use only (Note: They are generally only required for genealogical, court or consulate purposes. They are not for use as identification.)

  • This is a copy of the registration completed at the time of marriage, by the marriage officiant and the bride and groom

  • The photocopy print size is 21.5 X 28 cm (8 1/2 X 11 in.) (there is always an official raised seal and red stamp on the back stating it is a certified true copy of the original registration)

  • The information contained on the photocopy depends upon the year the event occurred as Vital Statistics has changed the form and the data it collects over the years

    Note: It will however always contain the following information, quite often more:

    • Full name of the groom
    • Full name of the bride
    • Date of marriage
    • Place of marriage
    • Birthplace of the bride and groom
    • Registration number
    • Registration date
