Documents for catholic church wedding 

For this post we provide that the couple from abroad speaks English/comes from an English-speaking country like Great Britain, Ireland or the United States of America. 

You need a „Brautprotokoll“ (pre-nuptial investigation form). You will get this from your home-town parish. If you are NOT both catholic the sheet has to be confirmed from the diocese (but your priest at home will tell you that if necessary). Further a certificate of baptism is needed from bride and groom and it should be not older then 6 months before the wedding (you will get this from the parish where your baptism has taken place). All the documents must be at the church office where the marriage will take place (Garmisch, Grainau...) 6 weeks before the wedding in the original (no copies, fax or e-mail). So an assured shipping is highly recommended. 

English-speaking

If the couple don´t speaks German the mass can be hold in English. Therefore normally the couple has to organize a priest on their own. We recommend to contact the English-speaking mission in Munich. In Grainau there are two English-speaking priests who offer to hold the mass in English so to choose this church will make things less complicated. 

What else

Once you have booked the church, organized the paperwork and ordered the priest most of the work is done and there are only some details like flower arrangements, music and a shuttle for the guests. 

The Riessersee Hotel Resort Garmisch-Partenkirchen offers a wedding planner service and will assist you with all details and questions.
