All marriages in Bermuda are handled by the Registry General Office.
The first step is to apply for a Marriage Licence.
To do this, submit a Notice of Intended Marriage
Once the Notice of Intended Marriage has been submitted, along with the fees for the Marriage Licence and Marriage Certificate, the Registry General publishes your notice in the official gazette. After a 15 day waiting period, you will be issued a Marriage Licence which is valid for three months.
Before the wedding, the Marriage Licence is given to the registered Marriage Officer who will perform the ceremony. Your marriage ceremony may be religious, performed by a registered Marriage Officer, or a civil ceremony, officiated by the Registrar General. Once the ceremony has taken place, the Marriage Officer completes the Particulars of Marriage Form, submits it to the Registry General Office, who then issue the Marriage Certificate.
