More Bahamas weddings ideas…
Having thought about it for many years, it’s not surprising that most people have a pretty good vision of what they want for their wedding. But there’s no harm in pondering about Bahamas weddings a while more…
If you’re dreaming of a traditional church wedding, you can take your pick from the many religious faiths represented in The Bahamas. For example, Roman Catholics who wish to be married in a Catholic church in The Bahamas can receive instruction for six weeks from their local parish priest back home before they come out for their weddings in The Bahamas. Their parish priest can communicate with the Chancery in Nassau.
Bahamas weddings – a classical backdrop
For the classical look, with a stunning tropical setting for Bahamas weddings, the ageing columns of the 14th-century French Cloister - on Paradise Island overlooking Nassau Harbour - can provide the perfect backdrop.
If you would like your special day to feature fabulous tropical gardens, you may want to choose the beautiful Botanical Gardens in Nassau; the Parrot Jungle's The Garden of the Groves in Freeport; or the gardens of your hotel, perhaps. All are happy to host weddings in The Bahamas. Magnificent tropical and colourful flowers like bougainvillea, oleander and hibiscus will make your ceremony seem exotically dreamy.
Junkanoo festival fun
The Junkanoo is a carnival Bahamian style, involving a rainbow of colourful costumes, incredibly catchy music and – you won’t be able to help yourself – lots of dancing. Why not import this electric energy into your special day? Add colour and extravagance with Junkanoo-themed weddings in The Bahamas. Your Bahamas weddings specialist can organise a Junkanoo reception or band to entertain your guests and get that party well and truly started.
Boat bliss …then party
Imagine how idyllic it would be to exchange your vows on the deck of a boat in the serene indigo waters of a palm fringed harbour at sunset? After the speeches and formalities, you might then want your cruise to begin – and the party to commence!
Many dream of being married on the perfect soft sand beach… well, for weddings in The Bahamas you have hundreds to choose from. You might also want to time the vows for a particular ambience, such as sunset; and you could go for the castaway barefoot look, or maybe you’ll glam it up. Favourite spots for Bahamas weddings are Cable Beach on Nassau, Love Beach on Paradise Island, West End on Grand Bahama Island, or one of the stunning Out Islands.
Or perhaps you want to be even more secluded and tie the knot on your very own islet or uninhabited cay? Weddings in The Bahamas can bring the fantasy to life as no other place can. With cobalt seas around you, azure sky above, and a scattering of palm trees, you and your guests will be transported to a land of make-believe.
