It was Nikkah (Muslim marriage registration)sakura wrote:Junaid,
What type of religious marriage was conducted?
You would have to check that this marriage is recognised by British laws, as if it is not your wife might not be able to apply for a dependent visa. The only options you would have would be to either get married or apply as unmarried partners if you lived together for 2 or more years.
