Unlike the Republic of Ireland, the legal requirements to get married in Northern Ireland are slightly simpler. You must give the Registrar a minimum of 28 days notice before the suggested wedding date (versus 3 months in the republic of Ireland). The marriage application can be submitted by post and both yourself and the Officiant will need to sign hard copies of the application form. (There is no requirement for an in-person meeting with the Registrar). Non-UK, EEA or Swiss citizens will also need to obtain a Marriage Visa and complete an Immigration Status Statement. Proof of both these documents needs to be submitted together with your Marriage Notice Application Form.
