"I was sick and you visited me..."- Matthew 25:3

Marriage Officer


I trust that as you continue to finalise all that is involved in your very special day that you would not only fins enjoyment, but also the blessing of becoming united as a couple as you lead up to your marriage service.

Attached to this letter are two forms. In order for me as a marriage officer to solemnise your marriage and fill out the necessary documentation according to the Department of Home Affairs, South Africa (Marriage Act 25, 1961), I ask that you please complete form 1 (Marriage Booking Sheet) out in detail.

Form 2 (Rehearsal & Wedding Party Information) is to be completed if you have the necessary information. Please take careful note of the legal requirements to perform and legalise a South African marriage.

Please note that the registering of your marriage is solely done by the Department of Home Affairs and I have no control over the length of time it takes for DHA to register your marriage.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thank you and best regards

Rev. Devin Atherstone
