Why get married in St Lucia?

St Lucia is a lush, green mountainous island with wonderful vistas and a wide range of places to stay. Both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic operate non-stop scheduled flights from London Gatwick and with a choice of regional add ons you can fly to Gatwick from elsewhere in the UK.

Many couples getting married in St Lucia choose one of the hotels which have no fourth wall, giving couples the most stunning views and a wonderful Caribbean breeze - something a bit different to an ordinary hotel - try Jade Mountain, Anse Chastanet or Ladera.

Arrive in James Bond style by helicopter! The best way of getting from the international airport in the south to the north of the island, where many of the hotels are situated such as Rendezvous, known as the Romantic Hotel, which is adults only and is a popular choice for couples to get married at in St Lucia.

Getting Married in St Lucia - the requirements in brief...

Both the bride and groom must be present on the island for at least two working days prior to the ceremony and the application must be made by a local solicitor to the Attorney General.

Documents required:

  • proof of identity / citizenship (birth certificate or valid passport plus drivers licence with photo)
  • proof of status – if single a declaration is signed; 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 18

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

The marriage must be celebrated in the presence of two or more witnesses
