Ceremony Details

Ceremonies are primarily arranged on weekdays, with some Saturdays being confirmed and are conducted by a Minister.


In order for marriages to be legal, the law requires that at least two witnesses be present at the ceremony. Le Grand Courlan can assist with providing witnesses if necessary.

Different Jurisdictions

If you are not a British Citizen (or hold dual nationality) and are in possession of documents issued under a different jurisdiction, we request that the documents are sent to us in advance. Verification can then be requested from the appropriate authorities in resort. We will advise you if additional documentation is subsequently required.
