Ikoyi Registry services make the process of getting a marriage certificate easy by scheduling different activities on specific days, so that you can have a life and still plan your wedding. Tuesdays are for oath swearing, Mondays and Saturdays are available for registering your marriage. While interviewing Omotayo who got married here, she says “the process was pretty easy and straightforward. All we did was fill the forms needed and paid the fees, then we came back in 21 days for the oath-taking”.


The Ikoyi Registry issues valid certificates to you and your spouse from any nationally, and although your forms will have additional questions, in the end, you and your boo will be legally married anywhere in the world.

There are only two federal marriage registries in Nigeria: one in Abuja, and the Ikoyi Registry in Lagos. A certificate from the Ministry of the Interior is recognized even internationally. This makes it easier for couples intending to travel outside Nigeria.
