Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.
You can find some detailed information on how to get a marriage certificate in our Settlement.Org How do I get a marriage certificate? article.
Here is an excerpt,
A marriage certificate is different from a marriage licence, which you get before you get married. It is also different from a Record of Solemnization of Marriage, which your officiant might give you after your marriage ceremony. The Record of Solemnization of Marriage is not a legal record of your marriage.
The officiant must forward your marriage licence to the Office of the Registrar General to be registered. This process takes up to 10 weeks (see current service times).
Once it has been registered, you can apply for a marriage certificate.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
