    Answer:
    If you approach marriage registrar office, they have only option to register under special marriage only. If you conduct church wedding you can complete the wedding and registration process also on same day.

    You can get valid marriage certificate within a week time

    Christian marriage registration possible one day process in Chennai. If you prefer special marriage act, it will take one month to complete the process.

    Some churches will ask to give notice and some small churches may waive the notice period on request

    Neither the registration act nor the christian marriage act does not require single status certificate for registration.

    But the marriage registrars will ask for single status certificate.
