    I'm french
    I have friends who are going to get married in France. She is french and he is english.

    They go to the town hall, and I have to translate the official sentence said by the "Maire" after which they have to answer YES.

    In french it is : Miss (Mr).... consentez-vous à prendre pour époux (épouse) Mr (Miss)....

    I don't know how to translate it in english.

    Is there a special sentence in English said by a "Maire" or in the church?

    Thank you for anserwing
