Following information is a guideline for British Nationals and members of the European community. If you will be having a Registry wedding at the Gurdwara Sahib the bride and groom need to go their local registry offices and complete a notice of marriage. They will need passports for proof of identity, decree absolute if in a previous marriage, certificate for any change of name, utility bill or drivers licence for proof of address. The individuals need to state the name and address of the place where they intend to get married. After 16 days the individuals need to go back to the registry office and each collect a blue certificate. These original blue certificates need to be given to Gurbir Parmar - senior registrar.  He will then organise a registrar to carry out the ceremony.

Three weeks before the wedding the appointed wedding coordinator from Gurdwara will contact you and arrange a meeting. During this meeting the coordinator will go through the procedure, costs and answer any questions that you may have.

Sikh Wedding Ceremony (Anand Karaj)

Wedding ( Anand Karaj)



The Sikh marriage ceremony is called Anand Karaj which means 'ceremony of bliss'. The Reht Maryada, which is The Official Sikh Code of Conduct, specifies that no thought should be given to the perspective spouse's caste, race or lineage. Based on a concept depicted in Lavan, the Sikh marriage is not merely a physical and legal contract but is a sacrament, a holy union between two souls, where physically they appear as two individual bodies but in fact are united as one. The bride's past and present becomes the groom's past and present. Her present becomes his and his hers. They feel and think alike and both are completely identified with each other, i.e., they become 'Ek Jot Doe Murti' meaning one spirit in two bodies.
