Simple, Elegant Cruise Wedding at My Secret Cove

Every day or so I get enquiries about doing cruise weddings. Most of these requests are similar, the couple wants a simple but elegant wedding, close to George Town, with lots of pictures. Many of these couples are budget-conscious, and they want a wedding which is affordable but doesn't sacrifice quality. You CAN have a beautiful, affordable wedding day in the Cayman Islands with your local cruise wedding specialist...Joy's "Simply Weddings, Grand Cayman Wedding Celebrants and Planners".

I will meet you when you disembark and complete the documentation for your Special Marriage License. If its only the couple, Simply Weddings provide the witnesses. (There is a charge for this, recently instituted, as per the Cayman Islands Marriage Law).

Most ceremonies include a prayer, or a blessing ie the Apache Wedding Blessing, or the Irish Marriage Blessing. If you would prefer not to have a prayer, that's fine with me, I am equally comfortable with a civil ceremony. My correct title is Civil Registrar of Marriages, and this means I am licensed and recognised by the Cayman Islands Government as authorised to conduct marriages in the Cayman Islands. It is my responsibility to file your marriage with our public records office, and to send you the Registered Marriage Certificate
which is your legal document.

I require a high standard of services from my vendors, especially my photographers. (No fuddy-duddy stuff, a wedding is supposed to be fun!)
