You'll Always Have Jamaica. Your wedding day is special so why not celebrate it in a special place like Jamaica followed by a honeymoon at the exclusive Whistling Villa. Scented tropical breezes whisper romance. The Jamaican sun, sand and the sea offer a glorious setting for you to walk down the aisle then walk along one of the world's most beautiful beaches, Runaway Bay. With so many beautiful locations all over the island, you'll have a difficult time deciding on the perfect spot to celebrate the biggest day of your lives! You can choose an intimate wedding in a garden, where you will exchange vows under a gazebo with the sound of rushing water in the background. Or hold your ceremony at Whistling Villa itself, and its ideal for your reception under the stars. Couples planning on holding their weddings in Jamaica must make prior arrangements for a marriage license, which costs 200 Jamaican dollars (about 5-6$ U.S.). This can either be done before arriving at the island by phone or in person at the Ministry of National Security. With a valid license, a couple only needs to be on the island for 24 hours before they are allowed to get married and officials to preside over weddings in Jamaica are fairly easy to find. No blood tests are required, however, officials will ask for a certified copy of a birth certificate, proof of divorce or death of spouse where applicable, and written parental consent for those under 18 years of age. Special regulations apply for Italian nationals, as well as French Canadians, who must have all of their documents translated and notarized. Your time in paradise doesn't have to end when the wedding is over. You and your guests can take advantage of all Jamaica and Whistling Villa has to offer. Venture to the duty-free markets in Ocho Rios, the private beach exclusive to Whistling Villa guests, and much more. You'll never run out of places to explore, and enjoy as you create the memories that will last you a lifetime.
