But if the immigration office suspect your marriage is fake, just to give you a residence permit, they can deny it.
It totally depends on the situation, how long you know each other, have you been living together, which country you're from.

It can be applied either from abroad (via embassy) or from Finland after you have arrived here. It depends on your nationality if you need a visa for the latter. If you apply within Finland, after submitting your permit application you may stay while it is being processed (even if it would take more than the three month visa free period or the validity time of your visa). During that time you will not have any more rights than a tourist does however.
If you plan to get married this year anyway, it could be smart to get married now and apply for the permit from abroad, so you could later move with a valid permit and better start a new life.
Obviously it would be very much desirable if you had realistic plan what you're going to do here apart from being husband (such as 'work')

Just remember to bring all the documents on NI contributions & cetera and get a EU health card off the NHS... go to directgov website and read the bit "moving to Europe", they got the chapter & verse. Also, you need to bring a document from the local registrar's office stating you are not married to be able to get married in Finland - may also need to be apostilled - which you should do promptly as they wont accept old paperwork at the magistrate. (Yes there is an affidavit process, but dealing with the local UK embassy is an expensive nightmare, as well as if you aren't married and without a job you have no "reason" to be in Finland so the Finnish authorities won't register you as a resident and the embassy deals with residents and not just some random tourists.) Theres a process called "avioliiton esteiden tutkinta" which your gf should call up and ask what exact papers the local magistrate wants to see and you be a good boy and get them papers. As far as then registering as a resident the same office deals with that so its a bit easier to get everything done at the same time - in principle, you can get "into the computer" easier with a "temporary" status, but you need to at some point (after marriage) go show yourself at the police station, and as you are married you have the "reason" so then they'll give you a paper of "registering of an EU national" which shown to the magistrate turns the computer say "resident"... Now what comes to benefirts & dole - check the directgov on the 3 month rule if you're on benefits - otherwise once you land you are a "tourist" and until you become a "resident" you are a "tourist". And as you haven't been working in Finland you will get some pitiful integration handout and put on an integration plan, but don't imagine someone is finding a job for you - thats what you need to be doing from before you come over. Whats your profession anyways and where you intend on moving to?
