A legalised marriage certificate is an ‘authorised’ legitimate copy of a marriage certificate.
To obtain a legalised certificate requires an authorised copy to be ordered from the registry office and then the Government Foreign Office or Foreign Affairs department in the relevant country affixes the Apostille stamp, thus authorising the contents.
Once the certificate has been legalised it will furthermore need to be translated by an Official Translator.
