The Wedding Dude is available for weddings, partnership ceremonies and vow renewals on the islands of Lanzarote & Fuerteventura, situated in the Canary Islands of Spain.
It has no beginning or end, symbolising the everlasting love that two people have for one another. It dates back to ancient Egypt, and they wore it like we do today, on the third finger of the left hand, because of a belief that the vein of that finger directly travelled from the heart.
The Romans called this the ‘vena amoris’, which is Latin for ‘the vein of love’.
“I give you this ring, as a symbol of my desire, that you be my wife, from this day forward.
I hope that you, like I, will wear it as an outward symbol of our love, for all the world to see”
I’m Mike Cliffe-Jones, and I’ve been The Wedding Dude since 2011. I’ve lived in Lanzarote for 20 years, and I also run Lanzarote Information, the island’s largest English language website and the travel agency Camel Travel.
In the years since I became a wedding celebrant, I’ve conducted wedding and vow renewal ceremonies for hundreds of couples in Lanzarote and Fuerteventura ranging in age from the low 20’s to the high 70’s, some for straight couple and other for gay couples.

It is not currently possible for non residents to have a legal wedding ceremony in Lanzarote. Couples …
