Getting married in Mexico

Get married on an idyllic Caribbean beach, and follow your wedding with a romantic honeymoon amidst ancient Mayan ruins…

Why get married in Mexico?

Mexico is a magical mix of colour, energy and history. Huge temples, colonial churches and pyramids provide a living reminder of past mighty civilisations that flourished here over 2000 years ago. For although Mexico is part of the North American continent, its tradition belongs more to Central and South America.

Modern Mexico, too, is a place of fun and excitement. Whether you soak up the sun on Mexico’s Caribbean beaches or explore the ancient sites, you will enjoy an excellent standard of hotels, varied shopping and, best of all, the warmth and friendliness of the Mexicans themselves.

What kind of wedding ceremony can I have in Mexico?

In Mexico only civil marriages are recognised as legal. You may have a religious ceremony but it will have no legal implications. A civil wedding is fully valid for legal purposes worldwide but a religious wedding without a civil ceremony is not.
