Marriage Requirements


Only civil marriages are recognised by French laws but it is still possible to hold a religious ceremony as well. In order to get married in France one of the couple must have lived in France for at least of 40 days prior to their civil marriage. They need to apply to their local mairie or town hall for permission to marry and will need to present certain documents. These are a valid passport, full birth certificates and 2 proofs of address which can include utility bills and rental agreements. Once these original documents have been presented, the banns will need to be published and put on show for at least 10 days prior to the civil marriage. A religious ceremony can take place after a civil ceremony, even on the same day, if required but the certificate of civil marriage will have to be shown to prove that the wedding actually took place.
