Why get married in St Barts?

A volcanic island of just 8 square miles, and with a varied history, St Barts is one of the most unique and individual of the Caribbean islands. With fabulous beaches, outstanding and elegant resorts, an abundance of tropical wildlife and many luxury marinas, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the location for your wedding day.

You are required to provide, in person, all documentation to get married thirty days in advance of the wedding day. So it is often recommended that you have a civil wedding in the UK and your reception and honeymoon in St Barts.

St Barts wedding requirements in brief...

One of the marriage requirements in St Barts is that you need to personally bring a complete dossier to the civil registry a month before your wedding day.
