Roman Catholic Marriage in Ocho Rios Jamaica
Roman Catholic Destination Wedding in Ocho Rios Jamaica
"Come to Me, all who are
weary and heavy laden,
and I will give you rest."

Matthew 11:28-30
The marriage of a Roman Catholic is a religious sacrament so Catholic Wedding MUST take place in the church rather than
in a resort or on a beach. A Catholic priest is not permitted to officiate at a wedding outside the church building. Marriage is a
lifelong commitment, and therefore, the Catholic Church in Jamaica requires a period of serious premarital preparation.

1. At least three months before the planned wedding date, the couple overseas must begin preparation for their destination
wedding with their own local parish priest.

2. Your local parish priest will send all the documents and paper work to his own Chancery office. The same documents are
required in Jamaica as would be required if the couple were to marry in their own parish at home (certificates of baptism,
dispensations, statements of freedom to marry, etc).The local chancery then forwards all these documents with a testimonial
letter at least two months before the date of your destination wedding to:

Msgr. Etuale Lealofi
Roman Catholic Cathedral of The Blessed Sacrament
P.O. Box 197
Montego Bay, Jamaica
Tel: 1-876-952-2481
Fax: 1-876-952-6679

3. A written statement regarding the extent and content of the Catholic Premarital Preparation is to be included by the priest.
Permission granted by their own Parish and Diocese for the couple to be married in Jamaica is also to be included.

The couple is to contact the Catholic Priest in Ocho Rios to arrange for the date and time of the wedding as well as to plan the
wedding liturgy. Ordinarily, this is done at the same time wedding reservations are made with The Blue House and our
Wedding Planner who is Catholic will be happy to facilitate all these arrangements for you.

Tel: 1-876-974-2523

A stipend of US$500 is suggested for the use of the church.

4.The couple must take care to arrive in Jamaica at least 2 full business days before the wedding as required to apply for the
necessary Minister's License. The wedding coordinator at The Blue House will make arrangements for this license for you.

The wedding planner/innkeeper at our wedding villa has been a member of Our Lady of Fatima Roman Catholic Church for
over twenty years. She will coordinate all the details of your destination wedding for you. From floral arrangements for the
church, programs, musicians, soloist and/or a choir as well as all the details of your stay, wedding reception and honeymoon
in Jamaica.

Rough Guide
Jamaica
has this to say about
The Blue House,

‎"SUPERB deluxe B&B
with immaculate,
tasteful rooms.

The highlight is
possibly the best
Jamaican-fusion
cooking on
the island
encompassing
traditional Chinese
and Indian styles.

Breakfast and dinner
are served family-
style, while the genial
hosts are a mine of
information and offer
islandwide tours.

A pool and nearby
river bathing are
great for relaxation."
