I want to apply for schengen Visa through French embassy in Nigeria. I have a valid UK Visa and have gotten prior to this one. I also have been to Russia a couple times and have a valid Visa.

For both Visa applications I stated that I'm married under the native customs and laws of Nigeria (traditional wedding) and included photos from my traditional wedding.

Schengen application specifically requests for the marriage certificate, I guess from court wedding, which I don't have. Is it ok to include the pictures as I did for my other visas or would it disqualify me?

Note: the wedding is relevant as proof of ties to the country.

    Why is the marriage even relevant to your visa application? – Henning Makholm May 19 at 12:04

    Yes the marriage is to show proof of ties. I also have a job and can provide evidence of employment. – Abi Olatunde May 19 at 15:37
  • Marriage pictures are not proof of marriage. How do you prove that you are married when you are in Nigeria? – Juan Jimenez May 28 at 12:10
