Registration of Religious Marriages

Recognition of religious marriages

Marriage ceremonies conducted within a range of religions here in the UK may not be recognised as legal by the UK state. To ensure recognition of your religious marriage, it is essential that it is registered. Registration of your religious marriage means that you have access to the full range of legal rights on divorce.

Cartridges Law supports the campaigning work of Register Our Marriage: registerourmarriage.org
