Congrats for your wife :)

Once she has the her naturalisation certificate she can apply for a passport using the form available at any post office.

First off Mike she will have to get citizenship, to do this you need a couple of things, the best place to go is your local national checking service who can advise on what you need, Things like passports wedding certificate prove of address, it costs forty pounds more or less, they will check all your paper work and photo copy your passports then give them back to you, you then have to give them a cheque for I think its now 740 pounds up from 650 last year.

Once the goverment have all this and check it is ok, they will then arrange for you to have the ceremony at your local town hall, when your wife recieves her Citizenship she will also get a passport application form.

I hope this is of some help, and cograts to Dao for her pass in ESOL.
