I had a civil wedding in Hong Kong in November 1982. In 1984 I had a church wedding at the Ascencion Lutheran Church in Ramos Street, Cebu City. I found out recently that this church wedding was not registered at the marriage registry office. I would like to apply for late registration of my church wedding. The Ascencion Lutheran Church is unfortunately no longer in Ramos Street but have moved to Catarman, Liloan Cebu. I do not have any contact details as the telephone number listed is not valid and there is E-mail or fax number given. I would like to ask for your advice on what I should do to register my church wedding. Thank you.
