Let me tell you, whoever said Kenyans are not getting married, has not been to Sheria House. WHAT?!?!

When babes and I went to get our marriage license, there was a queue of people waiting to get married at the registrars office, there was another queue[like us] waiting to register the marriages. It was really quite something and I was quite happy about it. God did not intend for us to be alone. Yes, I just quoted the Bible!

And since I am so helpful, here is pertinent information.

  1. You have to register your marriage and the notice runs for 21 days before you are given the certificate [and pretty much the go ahead] to do the wedding. This application costs Kshs 200.
  2. If you are having a church wedding, after the 21 days, you go and get the certificate and pay Kshs 350.
  3. If you are having a garden wedding (or a wedding held anywhere else apart from a church), after the 21 days, you go and get the certificate and pay Kshs 5,050.
  4. If you want to get married at the registrar’s office, you pay 1,550 (after the 21 days notice).
  5. If you want the exemption from the 21 days notice [like lets say you are coming in from the States in less than 21 days] you have to bring additional documents in addition to you National ID – Birth certificate, affidavits stating that you are single and a documented reason to show/prove that you do not have time to give the 21 days notice.
  6. The above only applies to marriages between two Kenyans, if you are marrying a foreigner or if you are foreigners wanting to get married in Kenya, there is more needed and I am tired of typing so email me and I will let you know.

As always, glad to be of service!
