Have you tried searching Pinterest? There are often a list of places to contact and think of when changing your surname. Having not gone through this, then I can't give any personal advice. But it feels that you've done the right thing to get 2 copies of the certificate!

From friends that have done it I don't think it is that hard. People will just need proof from your manage certificate that you really are still who you say you are x

Is everyone changing their name? I am not changing mine, I never get why women do this! Our children have both our surnames.

It can't be that hard, just Google it most place just update it worst case they just ask for a copy of your marriage certificate x
