Where can I get married in the IOM?

The Isle of Man Government Registries site has all the information you need about the legal side of getting married here in the Isle of Man.

It includes a list of the places in the Isle of Man which have been granted Approved Place status to hold marriage and civil partnership ceremonies. Note that most places will expect you to pay a fee for getting married at their establishment on top of the fee you pay to the registrar to legalise your marriage.

The Isle of Man Government website also details the practicalities of arranging your legal marriage in the Isle of Man. Any questions, e-mail the registrar – they are very helpful!

Kasia & Tim
“A huge thank you Chris for producing such beautiful invitations for our wedding in Poland. Both families loved the elegant simplicity of the design and were impressed with the insert being in both Polish and English!
Chris even produced 2 sets of place cards for us – one in Polish and one in English.”

Marie & Ian
“Thank you so much for our classic gold and cream stationery.
A lot of our guests at the reception remarked how well everything co-ordinated – even the hotel said it was the best they had ever seen the room made up! They were very impressed with your work on the place cards and the table plan.”

Annika & John
“John & I are delighted with the elegant wedding invitations you made for us. Family and friends have commented on how pretty they are. The cards have added such a personal touch to our wedding day.”

Sally & Ed

Lucy & Tom
“We found working with Chris and Graih my Chree relaxing and stress free – from choosing the exact colour to match the bridesmaids’ dresses to delivering the place cards. Thank you so much for our perfect invitations. Family and friends greatly admired them and were very impressed by the quality.”

Ed & Maria
“We found the whole experience with Chris and Graih My Chree excellent. Chris was always very punctual and gave us some wonderful ideas. She customised the invitations to exactly the specifications we asked for and the whole handmade look was simply perfect. Everyone thought they were lovely and the fact that the seating cards and seating chart were on the same theme topped off the look. I would recommend Chris to anyone I know getting married (and infact already know of a friend that has been in contact with her).”

Michele & Lee
“I met Chris for the first time at a local Wedding Fayre and was instantly taken in by the unique custom designs of her wedding invitations. Chris is extremely talented and very passionate about what she does and this is clearly shown in her designs, as they show great attention to detail. Graih my Chree offers a friendly, efficient and high quality local service that is very good value for money. Chris created my invitations from some suggestions and ideas that I already had, but added some of her own sparkle and they were amazing!! I could not have been happier, so much so that I proceeded to order my favour boxes, guest place cards, a guest book and table planner. I would highly recommend Graih my Chree for all of your wedding stationery needs you will not be disappointed.”
