FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Can we legally get married in France?
A: Legally, all marriages must be performed by a French civil authority before any religious ceremony takes place.
Traditionally the mayor can authorise a city councillor to perform the ceremony in the French town in which one of the parties to be married has been residing for 40 days minimum prior to the marriage. These requirements cannot be waived.
Q: So, if neither of us live/are living in France, can we get married there?
A: Generally, the alternative is to have a civil ceremony in your country of residence and then have a blessing ceremony in your chosen French venue. Remember, this has to be performed AFTER the civil ceremony has taken place. (It is worth speaking with a celebrant in France who may be able to help you with the necessary legalities).
