With 700 islands and cays, The Bahamas offers endless magical and romantic settings for your dream wedding.  From the best white & pink sandy beaches to lush landscapes and  quaint island churches; which island will you choose?

If you’re looking for: sandy seclusion, relaxation and tranquility

Consider: The Berry Islands, Bimini or Cat Island

The Berry Islands offer beautiful simplicity: gorgeous beaches, friendly locals and the perfect spot to retreat. With thirty cays of which the majority are uninhabited, an intimate beach ceremony with no bystanders is a reality on the Berry Islands. 

For a ‘rustic meets tropical’ feel and beautiful, natural surroundings, consider Cat Island! Perfect for smaller guest lists, this petite island is laid back and full of historic beauty. 

Bimini is small, but bursting with beauty, charm and personality. This island has some of the best beaches and indoor venues that can be transformed to fit any wedding style or size.  


If you’re looking for:
convenience, city vibes and adventure

Consider: Nassau & Paradise Island, Freeport or Eleuthera & Harbour Island 

Nassau, the capital of The Bahamas, is a popular destination wedding location, offering beautiful beaches and an exotic national park, amongst other things. Paradise Island, home of the popular Atlantis Resort, is also a great pick in this category. 

Freeport is fully equipped to cater to larger wedding parties and boasts a broad array of activities for you and your guests to enjoy. It also offers a good mix of nature, beach and history with a touch of island romance.

Eleuthera & Harbour Island are more remote than Nassau and Freeport, but offer twice the adventure. Harbour Island is only a short ferry ride away from mainland Eleuthera, which means double pink-sand beaches, lush tropical foliage and unique surroundings to choose from. Win, win!




If you’re looking for: uniqueness, exclusivity and nature 

Consider: Andros and The Exumas

Andros has a boatload of unique wedding venues that are off the beaten path. From breathtaking blue holes to lush forests and tucked away resorts: This island is known for hosting chic and exclusive weddings.

Last but not least, The Exumas are one of the most beautiful destinations to say your ‘I do’s’. Famous for the swimming pigs, this island also includes a mile-long sandbar in the ocean. Talk about Instagram-perfect! If you’re going for a more traditional feel, there are quaint historic churches to choose from, too!

It’s true what they say: it’s all about location, location, location! With so many great options, The Bahamas is the perfect place to start your destination wedding adventure.
