Getting married in Nevis is very easy.
There is no residency requirement, though either the bride or groom needs to be on the island for at least two days before the wedding.
You need a marriage licence and your ID documents. Read more about Nevis marriage requirements and the ceremony options available to you here.
Nevis is the best Caribbean wedding and honeymoon destination
Many people haven’t heard of Nevis, but those who have known it for its luxury, privacy and unspoilt beauty.
Nevis is the best Caribbean wedding destination because it epitomises a true Caribbean getaway. You will have those idyllic palm-tree bordered beaches all to yourselves for some true “together alone” time.
If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, you may want to explore the rainforest and meet its residents monkeying around. Or hike to the top of Nevis Peak to see our Caribbean blue seas and skies.
Tick off that bucket list item of horseback riding on sunset sands and refreshing sea spray.
Learn about sea turtle nesting, and even take part in a night-time beach-walking tour to witness this amazing phenomenon of nature for yourself at the right time of year.
And with Nevis Adventures you can have all this wedded bliss even if you are on a tight budget. Our affordable villa and apartment accommodation means you can bring your entire wedding party to the Caribbean without ruffling everyone’s financial feathers. Or have that honeymoon you’ve always dreamed of without breaking the bank.
What are the advantages of a wedding abroad?
Your wedding will be exotic and very different to the standard format of ones in the UK. You don’t have to keep up with the Jones’s or even out-do them either.
The day will be all about you and your personalities, and less about impressing your guests.
What about a beach wedding with blue skies and seas, and a gentle breeze? (Remember though, a Catholic ceremony must take place in a church on Nevis).
Getting married abroad can often be less expensive than the average British wedding. Many couples buy their own tickets and, while the bride’s family may pay for the wedding package, it’s acceptable for guests to pay their own way.
You are limited to only inviting your very nearest and dearest, making it very intimate (and it provides a genuine reason for not inviting everyone you’ve ever met and causing offence).
It is the best of both worlds, spending quality time with your family on holiday, and getting married. It means your wedding is much cheaper than a huge bash in the UK too.
The weather is practically guaranteed, meaning picture-perfect photographs!
And you don’t have to leave the party early to jet off on honeymoon – you’re already there!
Caribbean Weddings on a budget
One disadvantage of marrying abroad is that friends and family may not find a Caribbean wedding affordable. That’s where Nevis Adventures can help – our affordable accommodation means you can have your dream Caribbean wedding on a budget.
Our private villa with pool, Crimson House, is an ideal low cost honeymoon location. Its master bedroom is a haven for romance with its king-size bed and en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi. It overlooks the swimming pool and beyond that, the turquoise sea and sky.
And the additional two double bedrooms mean there’s room to accommodate your family, meaning your Caribbean wedding accommodation costs just £36/$47 per person per night.
If you have a bigger wedding party, or want Crimson House to yourselves, we can accommodate up to 24 of your guests in Nevis Retreat, another fantastic low cost property.
Marrying abroad is perhaps best suited to small close-knit parties who have agreed that they can take the time off to travel for an affordable Caribbean wedding.
This laid-back Caribbean idyll is ideal for low-key weddings – perhaps for your second time around?
You can even keep your wedding to just the two of you for that ultimate romantic indulgence.
Or just come here on your honeymoon, for magical “together alone” time.
