Steeped in history, Pollards Mill is a unique destination wedding spot. Located on the grounds of what was formerly an actual working sugar plantation, Pollards Mill has loads of quirky, charming features. More than this, the stunning sea vistas and tropical gardens which attract hummingbirds and brightly coloured butterflies create an unforgettable romantic setting.

Barbados is among the most popular locales for destination weddings. The marriage requirements are lax with no minimum length of stay nor required waiting period. Those wishing to get hitched on the Caribbean island must apply for a marriage licence in person at the Ministry of Home Affairs. For people who are not civilians of Barbados, there is a fee associated with applying for the licence, so be sure to fully research Barbadian marriage policy before booking your big day on the sun-drenched island.

At Pollards Mill you’ll benefit from the best of both worlds: although the mill is secluded and boasts breathtaking vistas and historic features it is not entirely removed from the warm, welcoming Caribbean culture Barbadians are renown for. While travel guides suggest you hire a car while staying on the island, previous guests at Pollards Mill have verified that when staying at the mill, you are just a stone’s throw from some of the best spots for nightlife and culture.
