Why get married in Tobago?

Both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic operate scheduled flights from London Gatwick with a short touch down on the way in either St Lucia or Antigua and with a choice of regional add ons you can fly to Gatwick from elsewhere in the UK.

Tobago has a nice selection of guest houses and small hotels which offer a superb personal service and laid back charm. For bird watching and unspoilt nature, this island is hard to beat.

Getting Married in Tobago - the requirements in brief...

Both the bride and groom must be present on the island for at least three days prior to the ceremony and must first give Notice of Marriage in person at a Civil Registry Office.

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 ceremony must be performed by an official marriage officer, even if you plan on having a religious ceremony in a church. The minister must also be a licensed Marriage officer.

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