Getting married right before arriving - any potential problems?

Hello, I am a Canadian citizen moving to Lausanne in December. I have applied for my Swiss Entrance Visa (Type D) from the Swiss consulate in Canada and am presently waiting for approval. I understand when I arrive in Switzerland, I will receive my Work and Residence Permit (Type B/L).

My more specific situation is as follows: Right before I leave, I intend to legally marry my Canadian partner of 11 years.

I assume I will have to notify the Swiss authorities of this change in my legal marital status. However, I am concerned that this may create challenges, as my legal marital status was single at the time of my Visa application.

Further, I am hoping this partner may join me in Switzerland by July under family reunification procedures. However, I am concerned that the recency of our marriage may create challenges, especially if there were challenges associated with my first question.

Can anyone provide some insight into these issues? I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.
