If you're looking for a country with a rich culture and diverse landscape, where new wrestles for space with old, then why not consider visiting India to get married. The stunning scenery stretches from the high peaks of the Himalayas in the north down to the sun drenched beaches of Goa in the south and with an exciting mix of desert and tribal villages thrown into the pot, a visit to India is all about variety. India is steeped in culture and tradition and this can be incorporated into your wedding ceremony. How about throwing lavish Bollywood style wedding with a procession of elephants, performers and a band, whilst onlookers cheer and throw rose petals followed by a sumptuous Indian buffet. Or what about a wedding that features the iconic Taj Mahal in the background. If you want to keep it simple, then exchanging your vows barefoot on a moonlit beach is about as romantic as it gets. Whatever type of ceremony you envisage, weddings abroad in India can suit the most discerning of couples.
Couples wishing to get married in India will need valid passports, birth certificates and a certificate of non impediment. They will also need an affidavit stating that they are single. If they have been divorced or widowed, then certificates to that effect will also need to be produced. In addition they will not to file a notice of intention to marry.
