If the Bride and Groom decide that they want to get married in a church, the couple needs a written confirmation from their priest that they are both practicing Christians and have participated in pre-marital counselling.
Roman Catholic weddings arranged by special request.
If you are requesting a Roman Catholic Church wedding these are the requirements needed:

  • Parties must be interviewed by their Parish Priest in the home Diocese of the Catholic party. It is he who will undertake the necessary investigations, obtain a dispensation if required and provide information about participation in a pre-marriage preparation programme. Your Parish Priest will then forward the relevant papers to his Diocesan Chancery. The chancery should then send them well in advance, to the Diocesan office in Barbados.
