To gain British citizenship by marriage, you must be married to a British citizen or settled person and hold Indefinite Leave to remain for at least a year. This process is called British naturalization.
Naturalization is the name given to the process of applying for British citizenship. Marrying and living with a British citizen is not the only route you can take into naturalization, but it is one of the most common. To apply for British citizenship by marriage, you must be married to either a British citizen or settled person (ILR holder or refugee).

To get British citizenship by marriage you need to meet the following requirements:
You need to make your naturalization application by post so you’ll need to have your documents gathered in advance of the application being made.
The form you will need is ‘Form AN’, Application for Naturalization as a British Citizen. This is 30 pages long and it includes notes and a guidance booklet.
You are advised to make a copy of your application before it is submitted.
You will also need to complete your Life in the UK test to begin the British citizenship by marriage process.
If your application is approved, you will be invited to attend a British citizenship ceremony where you will be presented with a Certificate of Naturalization.
British naturalization processing times may vary. Usually, the entire process takes around six months. During this time, you may be invited to attend an interview with the Home Office. If your application is especially complex, the British naturalization process will be extended.
