GETTING MARRIED IN JAMAICA?
Here is what you need to know
Pastors of most churches and all priests are licensed officers. If you need information, please call us.
For a civil ceremony
The minister or marriage officer will need the following to make an application for your marriage license:
Proof of citizenship - a copy of birth Certificates.
Certified divorce papers or certified death certificate if applicable (if not certified, must be notarized).
Notarized parental consent if under 21 years.
A fee of US$600 for a blessing and US$900 for the full ceremony with all documents and licensing.
All legal documents must be in English or legally translated into English. All translated documents must be from a legal translator with letterhead, stamp and seal from the translator's office.
When to Hold the Ceremony
We recommend scheduling the ceremony close to sundown with the reception starting under the beautiful Jamaican sunset and growing into a romantic candlelight evening. Winter months, sunset is around 5:30 PM, so schedule your ceremony for 5:00 PM. Summer months, sunset is around 6:30 but as Jamaican law requires that marriages take place before 6:00 PM, schedule your ceremony for no later than 5:30 PM!
For specific blossoms for corsages, boutonnieres, bouquets, decorations and centrepieces, we order these through a local florist.
Also include both applicants' full names and occupations, status (single/divorced/widowed),
date and time of the wedding, fathers' full names, name of villa or venue where the ceremony will take place, and proposed length of stay in Jamaica.
The process takes approximately six (6) weeks. All documents must be sent to our Wedding Concierge at least thirty (30) days prior to your wedding date. You can EMAIL or FedEx these directly to your Wedding Concierge.
Applicants must be on the island 24 hours prior to the wedding. Apply for license at least 6 weeks before the wedding date.

The Jamaican Wedding Cake
The traditional Jamaican Wedding Cake is dark and rich like a Christmas pudding, made with dried fruits such as prunes, raisins, dates, currants, cherries, etc. These fruits are finely chopped and marinated in wine and rum for weeks. This wonderful blend forms the base of your cake mixture. A crisp white frosting and fresh flowers complete the picture. Your cake can have one, two or three tiers. (Leftovers will last. Traditionally small pieces of the cake would be mailed in little boxes to friends and relatives who could not attend the wedding, and the top tier of the cake would be packed away and kept for use as the first child’s christening cake).
