Jaynie and Martin have a quiet
Tobago is a fabulous place to get married. You can go lavish and spend loads of money, or you can dial it down and have just you and your beloved, the minister, witnesses and the Caribbean sunset.
We’ve seen conveyor belt style weddings in places like St.Lucia. You won’t get that in Tobago. Your wedding will be just for you.
You really are spoilt for choice for venues - the wedding photos will look fabulous, and the choice for reception ranges from the best hotels to local historical cafes, or perhaps you’d like a lobster and champagne picnic on the beach. You choose. Many of the island’s hotels do wedding packages and can make all the arrangements for you.
The amended Marriage Act 1996 allows couples to get married in Trinidad and Tobago on/after the fourth day after their arrival.
A license application for can be obtained from the Registrar General's Offices in Scarborough, Tobago.
There are a number of wedding co-ordinators available, or you may ask the hotel or resort for help in arrangements.

Marriages can be performed by a certified marriage officer on any day between 6am and 6pm in a public space. They last about half an hour.
All marriages are considered civil except for Hindu, Muslim and Orisha ceremonies which have additional requirements.
It is always wise to check the requirements of your country with regard to foreign marriages beforehand.
Anything you want can be arranged in Tobago, from buttonholes and rings, to photos and live steel bands.
But best of all, you’ll feel like you have the island to yourselves.
A lot of people who contact us want to know how to organise a 'DIY' wedding - something private, romantic, and individual. Tobago is ideal for this - but we know that organising any wedding, let a lone one that is thousands of miles away, can be a real headache, and you want to get on that plane knowing that you can relax and enjoy the experience, and that you won't be writing letters of complaint when you get home.
Here are some of the places we heartily recommend to you because we know the people involved and we’ve seen the venues.
We’ve had a long association now with the owners of Castara Retreats and the personal and honest picture they give you of a Tobago wedding in Castara is as good as anything we can tell you. If you want a wedding that’s intimate, in a stunning setting and just how you want it to be – then we heartily recommend you go through their website. And it doesn’t have to be quiet and small – that’s the beauty of Tobago – you can do budget bespoke. We’ve met some of the wonderful people they describe - like ‘Porridge’ – and we give this option the thumbs up. Castara isn’t touristy. It’s the real Tobago – Caribbean Sea and sunsets on your left, colourful rainforest on your right, a bit of gorgeous beach inbetween, and some beautiful and friendly people to make it even more special. A wonderful place to start your married life.

On the same coast as Castara but further down the island are 6 stunning, pink and white gingerbread trim villas sitting by the beach and surrounded by professionally maintained gardens alive with colourful birds. This is a wonderful place for a wedding. Everything can be organised for you. You can hire one or all the villas for your family and friends and have a huge party round the pool. For more details about the villas have a look at our section, and go to their website for more details and prices about weddings/honeymoons.
