If you dream of getting married on a tropical island with sun, sea and sand, then Vanuatu might be just the location for you. Consisting of some 83 islands, Vanuatu offers spectacular scenery, gourmet food, and an interesting mixture of culture and heritages. Both Christian and Catholic weddings can be accommodated here and there is a wide choice of churches which will host your ceremony. Weddings abroad in Vanuatu are an unforgettable experience with a wealth of exotic venues at which to hold your wedding reception.
It is necessary to have spent at least three days in Vanuatu before your intended marriage date. This is a period of time to meet your marriage coordinator and finalise your documentation. You will need to fax or scan the following documents to the wedding celebrant: copies of both passports, copies of both full birth certificates plus a completed Certificate of Intended Marriage, which will need to be witnessed by 2 people when you arrive in Vanuatu. If you're having a catholic wedding, then you will need to provide a Letter of Freedom and it will be necessary for your priest to speak to the priest in Port Vila.
