This may seem like a silly question...but

My fiance and I are getting married on the 5th May, he passed out on the 18th January. He would like to get wed in his uniform does he have to get permission for this? and does he need/have to invite anyone offical?

Thanking you in advance.

No he doesn't need permission anymore and no he doesn't need to invite anyone official, he should of course remember to invite you :lol:

Congratulations, no need to ask permission to wear uniform or invite anyone official.
In the old days the black bow which tied the black silk used to be replaced with a white one. Hoe its done now I don't know. If he's inviting some of his navy mates they can also wear rig. It may even be possible for them to sign out cutlasses from the armoury (sometimes happenned in my day) so that they can form an arch for you.
A serving member may be able to give you more info.
Have a great day

He shouldn't need permission, but it wouldn't harm to let his DO know. For ceremonial stuff such as forming the arch, guard of honour etc, get him to contact the ceremonial training staff at his Phase 2 establishment. They're usually very happy to advise and should have a stock of cutlasses that he can sign out for the day.

Thank you for your help, glad he can get married in his uniform with no hassle.

He will need to take your Marriage Cert to UPO after the event (not immediately!), I don't think JPA Self Service Manager has a box for: tick when Married.

Just out of interest, why are you asking a question that he should already have an answer to, does he have you under his thumb already?
By the way, if you are really intent on staying with the lazy bastard good luck. You will most certainly need it.

I hate to be a sour puss, but wise up.

Nice to see all the positive responses from the people on this site. :roll:
