Getting married in LA is as almost as easy as getting a burger.

You don’t need any paperwork, there’s no waiting time, and you don’t have to wait for the Banns to be called.

All you have to do is get a marriage license at the County Courthouse before the wedding (for a religious or a civil ceremony). You’ll need your passport and if you’re divorced, your divorce papers, a $55 (£30) fee in cash and that’s all!  

Once you have your marriage license, any American registrar or religious official authorized by the state of Nevada can marry you at any time – on the day, if you’re in a hurry, as Britney was…A list of authorized persons is available at the County Courthouse.

After the ceremony, you’ll receive a marriage certificate signed by an official (either a civil officer or religious official). This costs a whopping $4 (£2).

That’s not the end of it, however...

The marriage is only valid if it’s registered by the administrative authorities of Clark County, who will give you a Certified Abstract of Marriage. This document costs $10 (£5) from the Clark County Recorder and will allow you to make a record of your marriage in the UK.
