Advice on Getting married in Bruges??


My Fiance and I are hoping to get married in Bruges.

Does anyone know of a trustworthy, reliable company in the UK to help us book this?

Or, if anyone has any helpful hints/tips and advice that would be greatly appreciated.

I've no idea about companies in the UK as I live in Belgium, but I must warn you that foreigners living here (and one of the partners MUST be registered as resident here to be able to have a civil ceremony in Belgium) often try to get married elsewhere if at all possible because of the amount of paperwork involved. See …angloinfo.com/countries/belgium/marriage.asp

As Qaminari has already informed you one of you must be a resident in Bruges otherwise you can not get married here. But I think that only applies to the civil wedding, and not to a church wedding.

I suggest you contact Mrs. Kathy Van Wambeke. She used to work for our tourist office and now does wedding planning in Bruges. She will certainly be able to help you!

Have a look on her website: http://www.theweddingplanet.be/2009/en/

Contact details can be found on the website.

I hope this info will help. I'd love to hear from you once you contacted Kathy.

Kind regards,
