How to order:
Note that an e-apostille (electronic apostille) cannot be used for a marriage certificate.
UK marriage certificates are protected by Crown copyright. This means that they cannot be photocopied. Only the original (green or red forms) or original official copies issued by the General Register Office (GRO) or local Registry Offices can be apostilled and legalised.
We need the original or official copy to get the apostille. You must either mail your marriage certificate or drop it off at our central London office.
Contact us to place an order.
When emailing, please provide the following information:
- How many certificates need an apostille?
- In which country will your marriage certificate be used?
- How soon do you need the apostille?
Once we have all the information, the team will assess your enquiry and give you a personalised and detailed quotation.
If you accept the quotation, we send an invoice to be paid, and the process of getting an apostille for your documents starts. We will take care of everything.
As soon as your marriage certificate has been apostilled, we will send you a scanned copy via email.
Regardless of what return delivery method is chosen (in person, self-addressed envelope, DHL etc.), we will inform you immediately as soon as the documents are ready to be collected or they are on their way back to you.
Assuming that you are not collecting your apostilled documents from our London office – we will also provide you with the DHL tracking number as soon as your forms have been given to the courier.
Note that we return documents with DHL (only). DHL return deliveries – both national and international require the following details:
- A full name
- Full return address
- Contact phone number
How much does it cost?
A standard apostille for a UK marriage certificate starts from £79.
Other costs will depend on what service you choose (standard or same-day service), embassy fees if required and what return delivery method is required.
