If you’ve ever had someone describe a trip to Turks and Caicos to you, it’s likely they have tried in vain to describe the bright Caribbean water. Somewhere between a celeste, turquoise, and tiffany blue, the water is nearly fluorescent and set against startling white sand. And, with a commitment to eco-preservation, it’s likely to stay that way for years to come. With a Turks and Caicos wedding, you can enjoy these unspoiled beaches both on land and underwater. Kite surfing, kayaking and sailing are popular excursions on the islands. The island is also home to the world’s only Conch farm.
For couples to marry, photo ID or passport ID is required, in addition to a birth certificate, single status report, and application for marriage license. Divorce and death decrees are also required if applicable. Check with your Certified Destination Wedding Specialist for more details.
