Why get married in St Vincent and the Grenadines?

The waters of the Grenadines are crystal clear and are wonderful for sailing. Why not island hop to make the most of getting married in the Grenadines and having a romantic honeymoon. Both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic operate scheduled flights from London Gatwick to Barbados and then onwards with Liat or SVG to St Vincent, Mustique, Bequia and Union Island. With a choice of regional add ons you can fly to Gatwick from elsewhere in the UK.

Getting married in the Grenadines is a great choice for couples and with a wide range of islands and resorts to choose from, we will have the perfect one for you. Our team has been to or stayed at every hotel on our website between them all and so can advise you on the best choice for getting married in the Grenadines. 

Getting Married in St Vincent and the Grenadines - the requirements in brief...

Both the bride and groom must be present on the island for at least one day prior to the ceremony and the application must be obtained in person at the Attorney General’s office at the Ministry of Justice in St. Vincent. The ceremony must be performed by an official marriage officer, priest or minister registered in St. Vincent.

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
