At some point of the religious ceremony someone from the authorities showed-up for the legal part of the marriage, he had the parts, bride, groom and fathers, sign the papers. Unlike the European weddings I saw before, the legal part happened at the same time and in the same place with the religious part and the authorities came to the ceremony instead of bride and groom going to the city hall.

No, this isn’t always true, you must be lucky to see that happening. I’ve never seen that in my life, and I’ve lived in India for almost 30 years now 🙂
i don’t know what’s the norm, it was the first Indian wedding I attended 🙂 and I thought “convenient!”
In most bengali weddings it is done same time.
Oh god how convenient…. why this is not possible in european weddings also?
Remember, the official came there very late in the night, this part happened around 10 PM… get a Romanian public worked do this…
