There are questions about whether or not they actually did and some suggest that it didn't actually happen because it occurred in an abandoned timeline.

However, both River and the Doctor remember it happening... at some point. She still knows his name, (Season 7 - "The Name of the Doctor"), she still refers to herself as his wife, as does he.

One (crackpot) theory I had, was that they marry at the beginning of her Time-travelling timeline, and at the end of his.

Do we know when, or even if, the Doctor and River Song got married?

The wedding occurred during the last episode of Season 6, The Wedding of River Song. It was an impulsive action and the ceremony was very brief, so it is not entirely surprising that some people missed it or did not realize it's significance, or that both parties accepted it as genuine, despite its irregularity.

  • For completeness, the ceremony can be seen in this clip: youtube.com/watch?v=eMpw9Bibj0g – Donald.McLean Aug 18 '15 at 12:52
  • The OP seems well aware of this episode, since it's the one he refers to as "possibly not really happening" in the linked question: scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/66527/… – KutuluMike Aug 18 '15 at 13:27

    But wait, there's still a plot hole! She (spoilers) never actually learned his name, but she still knew it in "Silence in the Library"... – Kevin Aug 18 '15 at 13:40

    @Donald.McLean "Oh I'm sorry, what was that? Did some one mention... The Rules??" - The Time of the Doctor. You have a point, sir. :P – Ben Aug 21 '15 at 0:18

    C'mon. Don'cha imagine they've popped off to Vegas a dozen times or so, just for the Elvis-impersonator drive-through weddings? It would not surprise me if one of those times they were married by the REAL Elvis. – Gary Botnovcan Sep 18 '15 at 21:11
