If you're looking for a country in which to get married abroad that is rich in culture and offers plenty of adventure, then you might like to consider India. This amazing country has incredibly diverse scenery ranging from the peaks of the Himalayas in the north, the desert in the west, tribal territory in the east and the beaches of Goa in the south, and with such stunning natural backdrops your wedding photography will be out of this world. Imagine getting married with the iconic Taj Mahal in the background, or standing next to an ancient temple. Whether you favour a lavish Bollywood style wedding with elephants and dancers, and crowds throwing rose petals, or a sunset beach wedding in Goa surrounded by close family and friends, weddings abroad in India can satisfy all tastes and requirements.
Couples wishing to get married in India will require copies of valid passports, birth certificates, a certificate of non impediment and an affidavit stating that they are both single. They will also need to file a notice of intention to marriage. If either of them has been divorced or widowed, they will need certificates to prove this fact.
