Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you

It is not possible to register foreign marriages in the UK - there is no need to do so

You are indeed married in the UK.

You will need to contact a service such as the one here

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
