Let me see if I can help and please remember to rate positive. The good news is that there is no longer a requirement for a visa national to apply for a Certificate of approval from the UKBA so you can get married whether there is an expired visa or not. Therefore it is technically at the discretion of the individual superintendent registrar the registry office where you propose to marry. They will usually marry you regardless of the fact that your leave to remain has expired.
You will still have to go through the usual formalities of marriage. This means that you will have to prove your identities to the registrar, as well as your addresses. You will then have to give the appropriate notice of marriage up at the local registry office confirming that you shall marry. Once this has expired you will be free to marry. The caveat is that there is no guarantee that once married the Home Office resolve the visa issue. Sometimes it makes more sense to resolve this issue prior to actually getting married. Happy to discuss. Please rate positive. Thanks
