Requirements for a Catholic Ceremony in Cancun
Outside of a church or chapel, a catholic ceremony unfortunately cannot be performed unless you bring your own Pastor. If you do decide for a church wedding, there are various churches located throughout Cancun, Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen. Some hotels have a chapel located on their grounds. The couple must visit their Pastor or Parish Priest in their home country and complete the required paperwork. Your Parish will have to get in touch with the church here in Mexico to check on dates, available times and additional necessary documents that may be required.
Requirements for a Catholic marriage in Cancun are:
• Certificates of baptism
• Certificates of confirmation
• Permission of the selected church
• Two witnesses
• A passport-size photo of both the bride and groom
• Prenuptial counseling attended by both the bride and groom
*Requirements are subject to change at any time.
