Many thanks you answer is kind of what i expected. I live in the UAE and have written to my Embassy to enquire about a visa. I do not hold out much hope mind!
I do have an affradavit stamped from the British Embassy that says our marriage will be solemnised in the UAE on 1st June- would this suffice as proof enough?
The Immigration officer that refused entry did say he believed John and i that we were not here to abuse the system but had no choice other than to refuse! - i find that hard to swallow but anyway- he has come and left the Uk many times over the past few years.
Also as we have a child together would they not need further grounds to refuse?
