Spanish term or phrase: Registro de Matrimonios
Heading of Colombian birth certificate. Preceded by Republica de Colombia / Registro Civil / Superintendnecia de Notariado y Registro, none of which I have trouble with. I was wondering if 'marriage certificate' is ok, or if something like registry of marriages is more exact seeing as "matrimonios" is on plural.

Matrimony Registry

"Matrimony" es mas formal al referirse al estado civil. "Marriage" hace referencia a la ceremonia en sí.
