Legal requirements to get married abroad

There are two basic options open to you for your wedding in the Algarve. You can opt to legally marry in Portugal by holding the civil ceremony as well a religious or celebratory ceremony here or you can legally marry in your own country and host the celebration ceremony in the Algarve. Each option has it’s own set of requirements and the paperwork, particularly with the first option, can be daunting. We strongly recommend that you consult with a wedding planner or local lawyer to be sure that you have everything in place before the big day.


Civil Ceremony – To legally marry in Portugal you will need:

–          Identification documents

–          Birth certificates

–          A Certificate of No Impediment. Portuguese law reuires that you have a document stating you are free to marry according too the laws of your country of nationality

Additionally you may need divorce certificates, death certificates of former partners or previous marriage certificates.

All documents must be translated into Portuguese and notarized locally, and you will need a translator for the civil ceremony.

A civil wedding is a contract that is bound to the laws of the country where the contract is issued.

Civil Ceremony and Religious Ceremony

In addition to the above and in the case of Catholic ceremonies,  you will need:

–          Documentation from your parish priest granting permission for the ceremony to be held.

–          Documentation for the Bishop of your parish

–          Documentation regarding baptism, first communion and confirmation

Celebration Ceremony

The celebration ceremony is not a legally binding act and therefore not subject to the restrictions of the civil ceremony. It complements the legal facts of the civil ceremony while allowing couples to truly experience their dream wedding as they can choose the location, the time of day, the words, promises, prayers and vows that mark the start their life as a married couple.

¡Una Boda de Cine Cine, compartida con todos!

Neus y Carlos recorren juntos el pasillo que les separa de sus familiares y amigos. Han cambiado los bancos de la iglesia por las butacas de cine, el altar por la pantalla grande. Su boda es, cinco meses después, un estreno en la sala Augusta de Palma. Mor mor –título alusivo a un apodo entre la pareja– se distancia de los vídeos tradicionales de boda, paridos durante años bajo la fórmula de sota, caballo y rey: un poco de improvisación, saludos espontáneos de los familiares y baladones mainstream para aderezar el ruido ambiental o los momentos clave de toda ceremonia.

El vídeo de boda del matrimonio mallorquín es una película en toda regla, mediometraje por los 35 minutos de duración, y supone el último giro novedoso a la hora de personalizar la celebración de un casamiento. “No tenía razón de ser ver el vídeo nosotros dos solos. Convocar a los invitados un día festivo [el pase se celebró ayer] para ir al cine es una forma de hacerles partícipes de lo que supuso para nosotros la celebración y una forma de agradecerles su presencia y participación. Les devolvemos lo que han hecho por nosotros”, explica Neus Artigues mientras reparte besos entre los asistentes junto a su marido y posa en un photocall, montado para la ocasión.

Esta original opción, ha sido noticia en Mallorca y la noticia reproducida en los medios locales y nacionales (en este caso, en el Mundo de Baleares ) ¿Qué os parece?
