CONTACT LT EVENTS & WEDDINGS

We are here to answer any questions you may have about our experiences. Reach out to us and we'll respond as soon as we can.
Even if there something you have always wanted to experience and can't find it on LT Events Zanzibar, let us know and we promise we'll do our best to find it for you and send you there.

– In order to give each of our clients the time and attention they deserve, we only take a limited number of events per year. “Quality – not quantity” is our motto. We focus on you and you alone in the months leading up to the day of celebrations. We truly believe each event or wedding is unique and there is no “one look fits all” planning package; that is why each of our services are individually priced and tailored to fit your specific event planning needs.

– Planning for an event/wedding can become incredibly time consuming as there is an innumerable amount of details that go into making an event run smoothly. LT Events & Weddings has the knowledge and know-how needed to locate the most reputable vendors, negotiate prices and contracts, handle the countless details, and greatly reduce your stress throughout the planning process.

– With a great knowledge of Zanzibar, over a decade of experience in luxury and hospitality business, competence and professionalism, we are your middlemen, secretary, risk mitigators and mediators, procuring best venues, entertainment and most stylish design of your event. Our job is to handle the questions and mini disasters for you on the day, and make sure you have an enjoyable, stress-free day with as many happy moments as possible.

– We have access to the best vendors in the area. You may think, well why would I hire an event/wedding consultant to contact this vendor when I can just do it myself? The answer is simple. Vendors need referrals (just like anyone else in the service industry), and some are even willing to offer you a discount for those referrals. With the money you save on the discounted photography package or floral arrangements, or even just the time saved in calling around, comparing prices and checking availability, hiring an event/wedding consultant practically pays for itself.

We are thrilled to be able to help you save time and money (as well as your sanity) in order for you to spend time enjoying your celebration of a special occasion or a dream of your wedding day.

 

– The marriage certificate issued by the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar is legal and is recognized in Zanzibar and/or Tanzania. After your wedding it will be authenticated by the Zanzibar Ministry of Foreign Affairs to ensure it is recognized by the Zanzibar Government and then registered, together with your documents, at the Registrar of Marriages.

– We will post your intent to marry for 21 days before you exchange your vows, as the Zanzibar law requires. Documentation should be couriered at least 28 days prior to the ceremony date.

– Requirements and processing periods in Zanzibar are subject to change without reason or prior, we do not accept any liability whatsoever for changes which occur.

– Take in consideration that it is your responsibility to check if the certificate is acceptable in your home country.

– You will need to be in Zanzibar for at least 3 working days before you can legally marry.

– All documents must be notarized.
