I'd say Yes you are married but I think your marriage certificate info is only held in the country where you actually got married.........read this :

If you didnt register your marriage when you re-entered the UK then I'd say no! lol

Ditch the OH and go travelling..lol

I got married in 2004 in Florida.

:thinking:

lol only joking people!

Yes you ARE married and in the UK it is legally recognised as a marriage providing you satisfied the legal requirements for the marriage in the country that you originally got married in.

Ideally you should get the marriage recorded when you retrun to the UK but as long as you followed the legal requirements in the country that you got married in and have the paperwork/certificates then you should be fine.

Also note that just in case you're planning on getting hitched in Vegas some blurry eye-evening then make sure you get the legal certificate the morning after as they only supply you with a novelty certificate at the drive thru ceremonies! lol
