Dear Sir,

This is a formal request for 6 days leave to proceed with my marriage which has been scheduled for (DATES) to be held in Hawaii USA. It will take four days for the cultural marriage and the white wedding. The cultural marriage is scheduled on (DATE) at my home at Leilani Estate in Puna District in Hawaii and the white wedding on (DATE) at Puna Cathedral in Puna District Hawaii. The two days are to give me enough time to travel abroad and make the final preparations.

As you are aware, I have been engaged for a long time and it will be rightful to put formalize my union with my partner like the law advises. I have done all the duties I am supposed to do this week and worked a few more days. To avoid my work station from being unoccupied, I have requested Nurse Joyleen Benards to work on my behalf on the days I will be away.

I will use the two days after the white wedding (DATES) to travel back to the city and resume work on (DATE) at 6:30 am in the morning. In case of any delays, I will communicate to you but hopefully there will be no issues that will lead to this.

Thank you and I hope my request will be granted.

Yours Sincerely,


Mary Thompson

Junior Nurse
