I need some advice, apologies if this is already in a thread but i cant seem to find it.
The story is that I am getting married to a beautiful polish girl next summer. I have no idea what I need to organise with the church in order to get married.
Here in Ireland couple need to do a pre-marrage course, is there something similar in Poland.
Basically I do not know where to start in terms of arranging everything so I can actually get married in a Polish church.
Can I get some advice on this please?
Hi, there is quite a lot involved if you want to get married in a Catholic Church in Poland.
I am part way through this process myself.
You do need to go to pre-marital classes before the marriage.
In my case, this involved four classroom sessions of an hour each, followed by three consultations ("poradnia") - two together with your partner, one by yourself. Each time we got stamps and now the completed documents have been given to the church.
You will also probably have to provide the church with certified copies of your baptism and confirmation documents.
In terms of the legal stuff, I think most of this is to be completed in the "urząd cywilny" no earlier than 3 months before the wedding. You also need to provide a document to say that you are not already married in Ireland.
