How to find an English marriage Certificate ?


New member
Hello everyone,

I registered here because I need help for my mother (I am myself no genealogist, but she doesn't speak English) and hoped someone could help me out. She's found information that people she's looking for got married in London and would like to get a picture of the marriage certificate. She has the names of the couple, the date of the marriage, and the city. However, since we are not from UK, she doesn't know how genealogy work here and doesn't know where to look.

Could someone point me out how I could get her a copy of the certificate? Are they available on the Internet or should we write to a particular institution?

Many thanks for your help in advance,
