To get married in Skyrim you will need to travel to Riften and find Maramal.

You can normally find Maramal in The Bee and Barb tavern during the day or Temple of Mara at night to sleep. If you cannot find him in either location you may have walked past him while he travels between locations.

Simply ask him about getting married. He will explain to you the process. Basically it goes like this.

1. Get an Amulet of Mara.
You can either purchase one from Maramal for 200 gold, or if you are hard pressed on cash you can get one for free by completing the "The Book of Love" quest. You actually get the amulet 2/3 of the way through the quest, but most people will complete the quest anyway. "The Book of Love" quest can be picked up from Dinya Balu in the Temple of Mara.
2. Wear the Amulet of Mara in front of the one you want to be your significant other.
You have to complete a requirement to befriend the NPC before you can propose marriage. There are 30 female and 37 male NPCs you can choose from. Check out for a complete list of who you can marry and what conditions you need to fulfill.
3. Return to Maramal and tell him you want to be married.
He will tell you to be at the Temple of Mara at dawn.
4. Get married.
Enter the Temple of Mara and use the wait feature to progress time to after 7:00 AM. The game will auto move your character and start the 2 minute long ceremony.
5. Say yes!

That is it. You're married and the achievement should pop soon after the priest finishes officiating.
