    If the court documents have the name conflict then it could create conflicts for you. If there are photographs and the valid signature then it can be contested in court. Court in past have accepted non registered marriages due to witness and photographs. So it is possible to prove the marriage if one has video copy of marriage, photographs and witness proving the marriage ceremony. If the court marriage certificate has name conflict like spelling and typo. Such can be corrected by visiting the office. In such case you have to provide your documentation for identification and address proof. This should help resolve the certificate name issue.
