At Jade Mountain, each weddings is a unique and personalized event organized in direct consultation with the bride and groom who can also add their own vows to the civil ceremony.
Wedding ceremonies are limited to one a day. There is no dedicated “wedding chapel”; instead, the bride and groom may choose their own “very special location” either at Jade Mountain or at the sister property Anse Chastanet. Location choices include the Jade Mountain's Celestial Terrace, the Anse Chastanet and Anse Mamin beaches belonging to the 600 acre estate, the resorts' old colonial plantation with 18th century remains, a nearby waterfall, the coral reef or the privacy of a Jade Mountain sanctuary.
No hassle: Jade Mountain will arrange for all legal documents and legal processing. Legal documents are prepared prior to arrival, based on a questionnaire to be filled in. Required for preparation are copies of passports and/or birth certificates together with photo ID and, if applicable, copy of divorce documents showing the final decree (decree absolute) with stamp and seal. All documents must be presented in their original on island. Jade Mountain requires a minimum 2 business days (not Sat/Sun or a holiday) to process the wedding application post arrival. Against a governmental rush fee, weddings can be processed within a 24 hour period.
Catholic Church weddings can also be arranged but take at least 3 months of planning, involving the bride and groom’s parish priest at home. The bride and groom need to publish their banns in their home parish and attend the pre-nuptial sessions with their parish priest who needs to send a confirmation of this together with various pre nuptial documents (birth and baptism certificates) to the Archbishop in St. Lucia. Parish priests will have the exact information available.
