Note to Previously Married Couples & Widowed Spouse Intending To Get Married.

Due to administrative complications at the Department of Home Affairs it is now necessary for previously married and divorced parties planning to get married to present themselves at their local marriage office of the Department of Home Affairs and establish their marital status prior to the wedding arrangements being made. You will need your ID document or card as well as a copy your divorce decree – the front page. An official will run your ID number through the system and be able to issue you with the necessary information. You may well be divorced but your divorce may not be updated on your marital status on the population register. You will then need to request that this be expedited by the Home Affairs Office prior to the marriage. I will still be able to conduct your wedding, and you will be legally married but your wedding will not be able to be registered until such time as your status on the population register is “single” or “divorced”.

  • Initial contact and communication to reserve date. Email and request form etc.
  • Informal planning and get to know you meeting over coffee – fingerprints and photo handover
  • Preparation of legal documents – marriage register and certificate
  • Conduct ceremony within the Metropolitan area – <40km from Kempton Park (travel costs and possible acommodation will be calculated for any venues outside this)
