Application: To get married in Bermuda you must ensure that your "Notice of intended Marriage" is published in the newspapers there by sending this (plus the correct payment) to the Registrar General.

The licence is valid for a total of 3 months from the initial receipt of the "Notice of intended Marriage".

Residency: There is no set period of residency required before the ceremony can be performed. Arrangements can begin immediately after arrival.


If an appointment is made the wedding can take place in the Registry’s marriage room between the following times:

10:00 – 12:00 Sat

The marriage room has seating for up to 12 guests (more if standing). The wedding can alternatively take place In a church or other place with the clergyman's consent. For church ceremonies it is important to note that whilst divorced people cannot be married in any of Bermuda's Roman Catholic churches, church weddings can sometimes be arranged for them at other churches - such as Anglican or Methodist etc. - by special request to the minister. It is also important to know that Catholics who do not normally reside in Bermuda cannot be married in the Catholic churches - unless under exceptional circumstances.

Witnesses: Two witnesses, over 18, must be present at the ceremony. The Registry can supply these Monday to Friday only. The Marriage Certificate is mailed within 1 month of the date of marriage.
