Catholic Church Wedding Requirements
While there are a lot of religions in the Philippines today, the Catholic Church remains the largest and most influential of them. That influence has even gone into some laws, such as marriage requirements. For weddings these days, at least you don’t need a separate civil and church wedding; they’re now rolled into one. Legal requirements aside, there are some documents needed before the Catholic Church Wedding Requirements.
New baptismal and confirmation certificates
They need to be marked with a “for marriage purposes only” note, and submitted at least three months before the wedding
This of course needs to be secured from your local government
A requirement aside from pre-marriage seminars
A bann is a proclamation from the church that acknowledges your marriage
Sounds like something that shouldn’t need permission, but you still need that in the Catholic canon
Certificate of attendance from pre-marriage seminar
That means you should have attended that seminar beforehand
Birth Certificate and Certificate of no Marriage (CENOMAR)
Stuff to get from the National Statistics Authority
List of names and addresses of sponsors
Depends on whether the church would like to have the couple confessed beforehand
