Required Paperwork To Get Married In Bermuda

I had one Bride say "We got married in Bermuda, To Have and To Hold Weddings figured out all of the details for us and we just had to show up!!" To Have and To Hold will make sure that you and your guests are very well taken care of and that the entire experience is stress-free. To learn more about Bermuda, please check out our links page for some great websites.

There are many, many breathtaking locations around the Island. Whether you are a destination bride or you reside in Bermuda you are not restricted as to where you can get married. We work with you to identify the location you are looking for and then make appropriate suggestions. You may wish to be married in a lush garden setting, on a cliff top overlooking the South Shore, under a Moon Gate, barefoot in the pink coral sand on one of our beautiful beaches, on a luxury motor yacht or sailboat, in the grounds of your hotel or in the Registrar General?s office. The choices are endless.

For outdoor ceremonies, we strongly suggest a tent be erected to provide sun shelter and rain coverage. This must be ordered in advance, or an alternative location is used. Should it rain on your wedding day and you wish to have additional photographs the following day, this can be arranged at an additional cost and depending on the photographer?s availability. A great website to check the weather is www.weather.bm.
