The South African Department of Home Affairs have strict rules as to
what documents are needed to ensure your wedding is registered.
**Please ensure you familiarise yourself with the requirements from couples and other details, as set out at the South African Department of Home Affairs website.
**From a South African Bride and Groom, I need:
South African ID books / cards.
3 x passport-size photos of each of you.
a letter from your Attorney, (not the contract) if a pre-nup / marriage contract has been signed.
If either is divorced: a copy of the Divorce Certificate (Final Decree of Divorce).
If either is widowed: a copy of the Death Certificate.
From your two witnesses, I need:
a clear copy of their South African ID book / ID card (both sides).
From Foreigners I need:
Copy of Passport.
Copy of the entry stamp in your passport.
Copy of Visa.
A Letter of No Impediment, issued by your Embassy / Consulate.
(these must be in English or translated into English)
PLEASE TAKE NOTE:
At your wedding, after signing the Marriage Register, I will give you your official Abridged Marriage Certificate.
I am a Commissioner of Oaths, so I will certify all original copies given / sent to me. No need to go to SAPS :-D
