Make Anguilla the beginning of your love story.
Soft white sands and starry nights, elegant, uncrowded and effortlessly beautiful – Anguilla is a natural for romance. Long sunset strolls down our beaches, secluded blue waters for swimming, swaying songs for dancing late into the evening, luxurious bedrooms that open to the gentle breezes of the tradewinds, superb candlelit beachside restaurants…Anguilla is a romantic’s dream for your honeymoon or just some time away together.
“One of the best honeymoon destinations in the world” Modern Bride.
Many of Anguilla’s pristine beaches have provided the setting for romantic destination weddings. From the thatched-covered conch lined aisles of Scilly Cay, to the graceful stretches of Rendezvous Bay’s sands, barefoot brides have celebrated their nuptials on Anguilla’s beaches for years – but the beaches are far from the island’s only romantic options for tying the knot.
Luxurious seaside villas, historic venues, majestic hotels, private yachts and tropical gardens offer a myriad of settings for your special day. And if you are looking for a more traditional ceremony, Anguilla’s churches add beauty and reverence to your service.
Couples marry under the authority of a special license that takes approximately two working days to process. Both parties must present proof of citizenship of their resident country. These documents are the same documents that you will need to fulﬁll your entry requirements when visiting Anguilla; your passport or an original birth certiﬁcate accompanied by photo identification such as a driver’s license. Two witnesses are required. If applicable, a divorce or death certiﬁcate must be present.
Marriage License Cost
If one partner resides in Anguilla for at least ﬁfteen days prior to the date of marriage, the cost of the license is US $40. If the stay is shorter, then the cost of the license is $284 (representing stamp duty). If you plan to marry in Anguilla, contact the Minister and then the Magistrate:
