Marriage in Switzerland - British and Swiss Citizen

Hi Everybody,

I'm looking for some help regarding getting married in Switzerland As a Brit living in Switzerland, the local civil office said I would need the following documents: birth certificate and certificate of no impediment to marriage.

The birth certificate i can get online via the registry office, but I am having problems with the certificate of no impediment to marriage. I can't get it from the UK as I would have to stay there for 9 days before apply at a registry office.

I contacted the British Embassy and they advised me that they do not issue the document anymore and that there is an agreement between CH & UK and as such it is not needed. As such I called the local civil office and they said they still require it!

As such I am a bit stuck and not sure how to proceed ... Can anyone help?
