What You Need for Marriage in Bermuda

Getting married on our island is really quite simple. Here are the three easy steps you need to take in order to meet Bermuda's wedding requirements.

STEP 1 - Complete a Notice of Intended Marriage

Download a Notice of Intended Marriage form or request one from the Bermuda Government's Registrar General's office

If you download the form, please be aware that it must be printed on white legal size paper (8.5" x 14") to be accepted.

Fill out the form and mail it back to the Registrar General along with a cashier's cheque or bank draft made payable to the Accountant General, Hamilton, Bermuda, in the amount of US $354, effective April 1, 2014 (includes certificate). Copies of final divorce decrees or death certificates, if applicable, must also be included.

Address your application to:

  • Registrar General
  • Government Administration Building
  • 30 Parliament Street
  • Hamilton HM 12, Bermuda

This submitted notice will result in a wedding license valid for three months. You or a designated person may pick up this license at the Registrar office.

STEP 2 - Choose a Wedding Location

Your many options fall into two categories:

  • Civil ceremonies may be performed in the Registry General's Marriage Room. Call 441 297 7709 or 441 297 7707 or Email to find out more
  • Ceremonies may be held in a church or other location with the consent of a member of the clergy.

STEP 3 - Ensure You Have Two Witnesses

The witnesses must be over 18 years of age and must be present at the ceremony. The Registrar will happily supply witnesses but Monday to Friday only.
