Marriage Requirements

There are two types of licenses that are issued: an ordinary license which is issued when application is made at least two days prior to the date of marriage and a special license issued by the attorney general for an application submitted less than two days before the date of marriage.  Visitors are allowed to apply for the special license on the same day of marriage, providing all required documentation is available.  The application to be married in St. Lucia must be made by a local solicitor to the Attorney General or notary who prepares and signs the licenses.  Required documentation includes a valid passport and certified or original birth certificate for both the bride and groom.  If a name has been changed, a Deed Poll is required and proof of divorce or death certificate (certified true copies or originals) if applicable.  We highly recommend that you work with a wedding coordinator who is familiar with the marriage requirements of St. Lucia to ensure that you  comply with their process.
