After marriage you can take your partner's surname in place of your own or in addition to your own (either with or without a hyphen). The only document you need as proof of your new name is your marriage certificate.
Start with your marriage certificate
If you don't already have your marriage certificate, apply for this at the registrar's office in the country where you wedding took place. It can take around 2 weeks for your marriage to be recorded and certificate made available to order.
Then notify the necessary companies
