  Is there any provision in the canon law saying that the Bridal Couple should provide the parish-priest with a confirmation of pre-wedding confession?
The fact of completing the pre-wedding confession is one of the conditions of preserving the so called dignity of the sacrament. The priest’s duty is to ensure this dignity. Which brings us to the requirement to provide confirmations of confession, which is written in the canon law.

The only situation in which the priest conducting the wedding ceremony could withdraw from this requirement is when he would hear the Bridal Couple’s confession and have this fact in memory (in reality this could be possible in small parishes where the parish-priest knows all of his parishioners).
