Hiya, The pre marriage course isn't a legal requirement - you only need to do it if you're getting married in a church and the priest wants you to. He'll also need your baptism and confirmation certs so get a request in to your parishes for those. Legal stuff - ring your local registry office and tell them you're getting married and need to make an appointment with them. They'll book you in at least three months before the wedding and they'll send a list of stuff you need to bring with you on the day. It's all fairly strightforward stuff.
