I’ve got my Marriage license what now?
I will request that you bring your Marriage license along to the rehearsal so I have it in my possession and in readiness for your ceremony. After the wedding when your Marriage license has been signed by yourselves, your 2 witnesses and me, all you have to do is keep your copy in a safe place, remembering it is a legal document and I take care of the rest.
Changing your name
If you want to change your last name after you're married, you don’t have to do anything special — but some places like banks or government agencies might ask to see a copy of the signed ‘Marriage license’.
