Turks & Caicos wedding photographer
Beach weddings in the Caribbean are always beautiful, but the Turks & Caicos is a heaven wedding photographers — and should be for couples, too. The island is just an hour plane flight from Florida, yet it’s relatively remote and is not on the main tourist route through the Caribbean. The islands retain their Caribbean charm, yet are easy to get to, easy to get around, and totally gorgeous.
The currency is the US dollar, English is the official language, and there are a ton of flights coming into the islands from major US airports. Check out AA, WestJet, US Airways, Delta and Continental. If you’re coming from the UK, check the BA schedules; if you’re coming from Canada, check the Air Canada schedules..
It’s fairly easy to get married in the Turks & Caicos; marriage requirements here are some of the least restrictive in the Caribbean. You’ll need to be on the islands for 24 hours before your celebration. You’ll need a passport, birth certificate, sworn affidavid of singledom, some various small documents, and a $50 license fee. The license takes just 2 days to process. You should definitely get in touch with the registrar’s office in the Turks & Caicos, however, but the basics are as above. This is a far cry from other Caribbean islands, where you have to be on the island for 30 days before your wedding.

What to do on Turks & Caicos
It’s always nice to have some cool stuff lined up for you, your family, friends and wedding guests, so it’s nice to find an island with cool activities. Obviously, just lounging on the beach is an option in the Turks & Caicos — pariticularly in Grace Bay. You might consider a round of golf at the Provo Golf Club, or you might wnat to go book a diving charter with many of the local dive agencies. You can also charter some beautiful custom cruises that visit deserted islands.
Dreamtime Verdict: Turks & Caicos
Mixed bag, and hard to recommend. The Turks & Caicos should appeal to people who want a good sense of adventure and seclusion but are unable to have guests make arduous journies. Often times, Grandma can’t get to the more remote islands in the Caribbean, but getting to the Turks & Caicos is a breeze. However, it is hard to really give the Turks & Caicos a solid thumbs up because of some extremely difficult work permit situations. Basically, you will have an extremely hard time legally bringing in your chosen vendors if they are from off the island. Because of this, you are beholden to use local vendors or risk having your vendor caught. Some are great, but wedding photography is a very personal choice and if you are particularly drawn to the work of a photographer who is not from the T&C, you may very well be out of luck.
