I am getting married to a Polish citizen in Gdansk in July 2010. He has lived in Australia for about 23 years and is an Australian citizen now. I was born in Australia. We have family in Poland who have been great helping us organise things, such as a reception venue etc.

Do we have to personally take paperwork to the registry office 30 days before the wedding day, or can we send this over and have a family member take it in for us? Thanks for you help!!

you have to go for a premarital instruction to some expirienced catholic priest and go on a pilgrimage to Jasna Gora. you cant get married till than. rules are rules.

I am attempting to get married in Poland too in 2010... in a village about 14 kms from Gdansk. I am an Australian, and I met my partner on the net in 2008. I traveled to Poland in July 2009 to meet and propose to my partner. I am in the process of working out what I need to do. My partner wishes to live with me in Australia when we are married... so I have visas and other things to get through too. It's going to be an interesting year!!!
