My Fiancé and I are planning to get married in the UK. I am a UK Citizen but he is a Canadian citizen. I know we need a Marriage visitor visa to get married in England. We do not plan to stay there after the marriage and have all the evidence for that.
However I am a little confused about whether we need the visa to give notice of the marriage and whether we can then leave and come back on the same visa to get married after as we can not stay in the UK because of work between giving notice and getting married. We are planning to give notice in May 2023 and get married in August 2023. We have the venue and the registrar booked for the wedding.
Everywhere seems to have different answers and the gov website isn't much help. If anyone can help that would be fantastic.
