This young couple from Madrid, Spain were "walk-ins" in that they were on their second vacation to the Cayman Islands, staying at Harbour Heights condos, and decided they wanted to
to be married. It was the simplest of weddings, at sunset at Mary Molly Hydes beach.

Under our law, I am required to ask two questions "Do you take this woman/man to be your wife/husband?" and "Do you know of any lawful reason why you should not be married to this woman/man?" Apart from these questions, the most important part of the ceremony is the procurement of a Special Marriage License (in advance) and the signing of the Marriage Register.

This couple will require an Apostille attached to their Registered Marriage Certificate. An Apostille is required by most European countries with the exception of the United Kingdom.
I will make the application for the Apostille and mail it to the couple along with their Registered Marriage certificate. Couples from the USA and Canada do not need an Apostille.
