Yes, the marriage certificate is the only proof of your legal marriage. In the religious marriages, they get the signs of the couples on the certificate on the spot to issue the certification. And in some countries, the couple must show the photographs of their marriage ceremonies to the authority to obtain the marriage certificate.
