I'm from Germany and she is from Argentina.

I asked a friend who recently got married and they didn't need to show anything on the day but then again they are both British.

Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.

Update:

We gave notice of intent to marry a few days ago. The registrar was polite and explained all procedures etc. He also confirmed that they will not ask for the passports again.

A few interesting things from the chat with him:

* They will not ask to see the passports again
* Home office has apparently recently started to pick up people for deportation BEFORE the interview stage
* A genuine couple with children who passed the interview was recently picked up and deported on the wedding day
* He reckon they only do this with people who are not currently reporting to the home office

So I'm sh*tting myself a little bit at the moment as we don't have a pending case. If we were to send in an EEA EFM application and refer to Lounes, will that been seen as we are trying to frustrate them and buying time?
