Weddings on Alderney

There surely cannot be a more relaxing and unique place to get married – so close to the UK and yet it feels like another world, with deserted beaches that easily rival the Caribbean.

The island offers a choice of venues to entertain your guests, from top class hotels in your finery to beaches in your flip flops!  The first decision is whether you wish to get married in a church or have a civil ceremony which you can do just about anywhere on the island!  Civil ceremonies can be solemnised by an authorised Civil Celebrant or by the registrar at the Courthouse.  

We held our own wedding at Les Pourciaux in July 2009 and in 2015 we had the honour and privilege of holding a wedding for some Les Pourciaux Cottage guests on the property as well.   Contact us to see how we might be able to help you achieve the wedding of your dreams.

The rules on getting married on the island were recently changed and the new law came into effect on 1 March 2021.  Less time is now required on the island before getting married, and also the rules on when and where you can get married have changed, meaning you can now get married for example on a beach and in the evening.
