Yes, you can register your marriage anywhere in INDIA. I got married in my hometown but got my marriage registered in Bangalore.

  1. You will need to provide a valid address proof of you or your spouses residence within BLR city limits.
  2. You will need to provide age proofs to prove that you both are majors
  3. You will also need to provide a valid certificate of marriage (not necessarily a registered certificate) from the place where you were married. It is usually a sheet which the person conducting the wedding provides with a signature/seal/registration number along with witnessess. Many instituted places of worship which are run by trusts have this facility.
  4. In the event of marriage certificate not available. You will need to provide a wedding invitation, photographs from your wedding and two passport photographs of your selves (this incase the webcam is not working).
  5. You will need two witnesses to sign, preferably atleast one witness who would have signed on the certificate in step 3.

Submit the documents to registrar.
