Tie the Knot in Bermuda
Few destinations offer a more memorable setting to say "I do"
Weddings

Bermuda is the perfect place for a destination wedding. Exchange your vows on a coral pink sandy beach, from the top of a breathtaking cliff, aboard a sail boat, in an historic church or in a lush, tropical garden.  The choice is yours. Stroll hand-in-hand along the water's edge or drink in a stunning sunset from the deck of a luxury yacht and you'll soon discover why Bermuda is consistently rated one of the world's top wedding and honeymoon destinations.

Whether you are planning an intimate wedding party for two or a celebration for 200, Bermuda will feel like your own ceremonial paradise. From horse drawn carriages to sophisticated hotel facilities, all the services of our world famous tourism industry are available and our weather is as friendly and welcoming as our people.  To make the wedding of your dreams totally stress free, let a professional wedding planner -- expert in the ways of Bermuda -- make all the arrangements. From booking just the right location and entertainment to organizing flowers, formal wear and photographers.  No detail is too to create a memorable Bermuda wedding.

Legal Requirements : To get married in Bermuda the couple must complete and send a "Notice of Intended Marriage" form (including full names and residential addresses) to the Bermuda Registrar General within three months of the intended wedding date. A fee of $300 (plus $30 for the certificate) in the form of a cashier's cheque or bank draft made payable to the Accountant General, Hamilton, Bermuda, or a credit card payment must accompany the form. Personal cheques are not accepted. "Notice of Intended Marriage" forms available online from the Register General.
