Our BVI Wedding Planning Philosophy
If you’re thinking about getting married in the British Virgin Islands, we can assist you in several areas, or the bare minimum to get the job done!
Over the years, we’ve spent countless hours helping clients craft their perfect island wedding events. There are a few wedding services we get asked about most, which we have several reputable, and reasonable connections.
However, this is your day, it’s up to us to be open and flexible in order to deliver your perfect day.
We appear when you need us, and vanish when you don’t.
Photography and Video
The BVI has a number of reputable wedding photographers and videographers both in Tortola and Virgin Gorda.
The costs for wedding photo and video services can range by artist venue and special requests. Whether you want a cinematic aerial masterpiece, a serene beach portrait package, or a submerged underwater, love odyssey, we can help you find the perfect photographer for the event.
All of the photographers we work with are trade-licensed professionals in the British Virgin Islands.
Let us know how we can capture your event. All projects are customized and tailored to suit your needs and budget.
Wedding Florals & Bouquets
We can order just about anything you want in terms of flowers for the ceremony and reception, but some flowers travel better than others. We are the 3rd stop once flowers get here so we have to be careful that we get the heartiest flowers. Some that are great to work with and travel well are orchids, Gerber daisies (come in very vibrant bright colors), lilies, hydrangeas, and roses. Sending pictures helps tremendously as does provide a color scheme. Please contact us or submit an inquiry to learn more or get started on ordering flowers for your special day!
Catering services are available and can be arranged through BVI Weddings for the day of your wedding. Whether you chose a formal sit dinner or a casual buffet there are a number of great chefs who can make it happen! There are also some great restaurants where you can have dinner/reception. Contact us to inquire more about types of catering services, or to start your planning!
We can order whatever you wish if and you want something a bit more “islandy” my baker does an amazing carrot, coconut/rum or lemon cake. He also does delicious traditional vanilla or chocolate. As with flowers, pictures help a lot to give as an idea of what you have in mind. We can replicate almost anything, however, I tend to have cakes frosted fairly plain so I can decorate with fresh flowers and greenery to match the theme of your wedding.
We can get an arch for your special day and are happy to decorate it with fresh flowers and tropical greens.
After 25 years I have acquired many different hurricane lamps, votive candle holders, string lights and decorating items that can be used to make your reception area gorgeous. For a small fee you can rent anything you like and use my decorating services.
Legal Marriage Process
If you’re wondering what the legal process of getting married in the British Virgin Islands is, look no further.
You will need to be in the territory for two working days and will need your passport and any original divorce or death decrees to apply for your marriage license. Should you not have an original, a certified copy will suffice as long as it has a raised seal and/or signature. They will not accept a photocopy. If you are from a foreign country and your divorce decree is in another language, you will be required to have it translated.
The application process less than an hour and Heather will be with you to walk you through it and act as a witness if necessary. From there you’re back in the sun and you won’t need to go back to any Government office as the marriage officer will bring everything with them on the day of the ceremony.
We are here to help you source venues ranging from beaches, boats, hotels, restaurants, and private villas throughout the BVI. We love to be creative with your dream location and will do everything in our power to make it the perfect place to say “I do!”
"My husband and I visited the BVI in 2018 and instantly fell in love with the islands. We knew right away that this would be the perfect location for an elopement. I didn’t have the first clue about planning a wedding in a foreign country, but I found BVI Weddings through an internet search, and after my first phone call with Heather, I knew I found the right wedding planner for our intimate ceremony. Heather made the process so easy and stress-free, I just sent her a few ideas of what I had in mind, and she handled the rest. Upon meeting her when we arrived in the BVI, she was so warm and kind, I felt like I had known her forever. Heather knows the island very well, so I was happy to trust her suggestions. She knew the perfect beach and the exact right time of day to catch the famously breathtaking BVI sunsets in our photos. Her photographer, Mar, was wonderful to work with and captured the day just beautifully. I couldn’t have been happier with how my special day turned out. Thank you, Heather!"
"Heather was wonderful through the planning of our elopement in Tortola. Being a long time BVI resident, she knows all of the ins and outs of the island. From the seamless marriage certificate appointment, photographer suggestion, to the floral arrangements, we wouldn't have been able to do it without her. She truly was instrumental in making our elopement a seamless and enjoyable experience."
Heather was fast, efficient & so easy to work with prior to our wedding. The day of, she had everything done exactly how I imagined, just off a few pictures. You can really tell she's been doing this forever & knows what she's doing & does it well!
Also, when we finally met with Heather, my husband and I felt like we had already known her forever. She is truly talented at what she does but she is also a great person with great energy!
We already miss her!
