"Oceanfront rooms designed by Ralph Lauren and poolside terraces worthy of your best Saint Lauren outfit encapsulate an atmosphere of sophisticated chic in a Caribbean setting. "
Sitting west of Montego Bay and perched on a peninsula of 110 acres this resort commands a majestic view of the crystalline Caribbean seas. With a castaway island feel – the hotel is soothed by waters on 3 sides – and world class beaches, you and your guests can soak up the balmy atmosphere both in and outside the Round Hill Hotel.
Oceanfront rooms designed by Ralph Lauren and poolside terraces worthy of your best Saint Lauren outfit encapsulate an atmosphere of sophisticated chic in a Caribbean setting. Natural stone and leafy palms are contrasted with cool white exteriors and beach decor to offer you a wedding venue where you will feel comfortably at home yet suitably spoilt.
At the Round Hill Hotel you can cement your love in a variety of tropical settings. The Spa Lawn offers a lush venue and aptly symbolises the fertility of your new marriage. If you long for a more secluded service the warm sands of the Caribbean coast or a private hillside retreat may enchant you. Or if you want a wedding synonymous with the tropics, the exotic gardens offer a vibrant and picturesque setting in which to say ‘I do.’
If you are hosting a more grandiose affair your guests will be treated to a sophisticated cocktail party with an open bar and hors d’oeuvres; while those happy couples booking a more intimate event can enjoy the first three nights of their honeymoon in a Deluxe Villa complete with pool area. Culinary pleasures crafted from the hotel’s Organic Garden will flatter menus that can be specially tailored to spice up your informal Jamaican beach celebration or refine your elegant sit down dinner.
If the rays here are good enough for Noel Coward, Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy to soak up then you can be sure that your guests won’t be disappointed. The bliss of a Spa treatment can untangle any knots before you tie the big one; whilst a plethora of activities, such as snorkelling in coral reefs, will keep the adrenaline pumping after the big day.

• Marriage ceremonies may be conducted every day of the week between the hours of 6:00 and 20:00.

Most hotels in Jamaica have wedding coordinators or someone who can plan your wedding for you. The process is the same as when using a Marriage Officer. The main difference may be the cost or the time frame for sending the required documents to the hotel. Some hotels require the documents at least 6 weeks prior the proposed wedding date.
After the Ceremony
Immediately following the ceremony, you are given a copy of the Marriage Register which shows proof of marriage. This is signed by the Marriage Officer, yourselves and your witnesses. (Don’t worry; you don’t have to bring your own with you!) Please note that the copy of the Marriage Register is NOT a legal document and as such cannot be used to conduct any business! You must obtain a certified copy of your marriage certificate.
Certified Copy of Marriage Certificate
The Marriage Certificate may be applied for by the Marriage Officer and takes between 7 working days to 1 month to be processed by the Registrar Generals Department (Registry of births, deaths and marriages) whose address appears above. You may apply for it yourself and there is an express services available. Please ask your Marriage Officer or the Hotel wedding coordinator when you make initial contact and make your payments.
If your country’s language is not English, then your documents must be legalised by your Embassy which represents your Government in Jamaica. Therefore, after the original Marriage Certificate is issued by the Jamaican Government, the certified copy is sent to the Marriage Officer who forwards this with your address to your Embassy. Alternatively, you may have the original Marriage Certificate authenticated by this High Commission prior to being legalized by your respective Embassy in , for example, in London (or any other location).
Only after being legalised by your Embassy is the marriage process in Jamaica complete and your marriage will be recognised as a legal union in your country of origin.
