Good morning David.

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

You will need a certificate of no impediment to marriage from your local registry office before you are able to marry. You can see from this page on the Filipino embassy's web page that this is the case (look 3/4 of the page down at the question -

You will have to make an appointment, attend with your passport, proof of address and if you have been married before the death certificate for your wife.

 

Certificate of Legal Capacity to Marry. The said certificate is needed for his application for a marriage license at the registry office of the locality/church where the marriage is to take place.Certificate of Legal Capacity to Marry.

Once you have this you and have traveled to the Philippines it seems you will have to attend the UK embassy there and present this in order to obtain a Certificate of Legal Capacity to Marry. In turn this should then be used in an application for a marriage licence at the registry office where you are to actually marry. A bit of forward planning will be required here and perhaps your wife can make enquiries directly if she is presently in the Philippines.
