Malta is a very easy place in which to get married and most of the paperwork can be done from home. A couple must request the publication of wedding banns at the Registry Office in Valletta no later than 6 weeks before intended wedding date and no more than 3 months before. The documents they will need are full birth certificates, a completed freedom to marry form (RZ2), certificate of no-impediment, and copies of their passports. The Licence to marry will be issued by the Registry Office 10 days before the wedding date and can be collected on arrival. The Marriage Certificate is given immediately after the ceremony has taken place. For more information visit http://www.weddings-abroad-guide.com/legal-requirements-for-getting-married-in-malta.html
