Do you want to have a civil wedding ceremony in the Cayman Islands?

My second wedding of the day today was on Seven Mile Beach.  A couple who live in Switzerland  told me that they almost didn't get married in Grand Cayman because they wanted a civil wedding, and most of the Marriage Officers here are ministers of religion.  This led me to tell them how I became a Civil Registrar of Marriages, officiating several hundred weddings every year, for cruise visitors, other visitors and residents.

 My parents, Vernon & Francine Jackson owned and operated the first wedding celebrant and planning company , in the Cayman Islands, called simply "Cayman Weddings".  In fact, my mother was the first Civil Registrar of Marriages to be appointed.   For thirteen years, while I was employed  by the Cayman Islands Government, I was her Deputy, meaning that I could officiate weddings when she was off island or indisposed.  When I retired and I got my full license with my own Registry, I began a company called "Simply  Weddings" specializing in cruise weddings on the beautiful beaches and historic sites of my island home.

Three years ago, I was joined by my husband, Sam and together we operate a full service wedding planning and wedding celebrant business  called "Simply Weddings", offering legal weddings,  and wedding vow renewals to clients from all over the world.  Each of our wedding packages offer the Special Marriage License, the personalized ceremony, the wedding celebrant, the Certified Copy of the Marriage Register (available immediately) and the Registered Marriage Certificate, from the Cayman Islands Government showing that you were legally married in the Cayman Islands and your marriage has been recorded.  Our wedding packages start at US$700 for visitors, or you can choose an all-inclusive package with many services, or even a customized deluxe package.  Groups are welcome.
