The Legalities

The wedding must take place between 8am-7pm and it must begin within an hour of the scheduled start time.

No food or drink to be served in the approved area an hour before or during the ceremony.

Specific vows have to be said exactly as required by Law (however you can add you own personalised vows)

Two witnesses (over the age of 18) are required to hear you witness your vows being said and the Marriage Schedule and Certificates have to be signed.

Ceremonies can be held at the Office of the Superintendent Registrar or at an approved location.  Many hotels and other Island wedding venues are already approved locations but you can apply to have specific areas of private homes and gardens licenced along with other outdoor locations and beaches.

Certain religious content is permissible in a civil wedding ceremony such as hymns (played or performed) however, psalms, prayers or any other acts of worship are not allowed.  

You must apply to give notice to marry through the Office of the Superintendent Registrar a maximum of 12 months and a minimum of 26 days before your wedding day.  There are additional fees for this legal application process.

If you have decided that you would like me to conduct your wedding ceremony you will need to let the Office know.  My fees are paid directly to me in addition to the ones above.
