Hi C Thomson,


Thanks for your question.


If you have a marriage certificate (or appropriate depending on the Country) and can prove that the marriage is valid according the customs and Laws of the country (ie. Nigeria) then it is valid for the purposes of immigration law and policy in the UK.


I apologise for the brevity of the answer, but it is as simple as that.
