A civil wedding is already considered valid and legally binding.
Therefore, there’s no need for you to apply for a marriage license again should you decide to tie the knot in the church.
Instead, get a Certified True Copy of your marriage contract/certificate from the PSA and submit it to the church two months before the wedding.
For out-of-the-country civil weddings, you may also present a marriage certificate from the country where the civil marriage took place.
