Why get married in Grenada?

Grenada has a laid back charm and a slower pace to some of the busiest Caribbean Islands which makes it great for a relaxing honeymoon and ideal place for a chilled out wedding. Grand Anse Beach, with it's long stretch of white sand and lapping Caribbean sea is where some of the best hotels are located. There are superb restaurants to try including Rhodes, by Gary Rhodes, and Aquarium for delicious lobster BBQ's.

Both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic operate scheduled flights from London Gatwick with a short touch down in Antigua on the way. And with a choice of regional add on you can fly to Gatwick from elsewhere in the UK. If you are thinking of getting married in Grenada, we recommended you book as far in advance as possible as seat availability is limited because it is a shared route with Antigua.
 
From the laidback luxury of Laluna, to the wonderful beachfront suites at Spice Island Beach Resort, the choice of hotels is excellent for those looking to get married in Grenada.
 
Getting Married in Grenada - the requirements in brief...
 
To get married in Grenada you need to be present in the country for at least one working day to apply for a marriage licence from the office of the Prime Minister which is usually processed within two days unless once of the couple is a divorcee, in which case more time is required.

Documents required:

  • proof of identity / citizenship (birth certificate or valid passport plus drivers licence with photo)
  • proof of status – if single you require an affidavit (or letter from a clergy man, lawyer or registry attesting neither party has been married previously); if married previously, present original divorce documents (Decree Absolute) or death certificate
  • if either party has had their name changed by deed poll, legal proof is required which has been certified by a solicitor or lawyer. This is also the case if a previously married woman has reverted to her maiden name
  • if either party has been adopted then an original copy of the certificate is required, or a certified copy
  • written parental consent by way of an Affidavit from a lawyer or notary public if either party is under the age of 21

Fees and stamp duty are payable and all documents not in English must be accompanied by a certified translation.
