Getting married always brings up the question where and how to arrange such an important day in life. Surely there are many ways to get married in countless places on earth but the Inchcape Seaside Villas on the Caribbean island of Barbados turned out and proved to be one of those dream locations for a wedding.
The requirements of the Government of Barbados are easy to fulfil:
There is no required waiting period or minimum length of stay. The application for a marriage licence must be made by both parties in person at the office of the Ministry of Home Affairs.
Required documents are:
Valid Passports or the original or certified copies of birth certificates. If either party was divorced, an original Decree Absolute or a certified copy of the Final Judgement. If either party was previously married and widowed, a certified copy of the Marriage Certificate and Death Certificate in respect of the deceased spouse. Where necessary, all documents not in English must be accompanied by a certified translation.

If neither party is a citizen or resident of Barbados: Bds.-$ 150,-- cash and a Bds.-$ 25,-- stamp. If one party is a citizen of Barbados the fees change to: Bds.-$ 45,-- plus a Bds.-$ 10,-- stamp fee.
