When the bride and groom have not been married priorly and need to get married first, the process of a court marriage would be applicable. When the marriage ceremony has been performed already, a marriage certificate can be issued after giving a public notice of 30 days. The marriage certificate is issued in 30 days if the Marriage Registrar receives no objections against the notice during this period.
