Getting married on a paradise island means that as soon as you exchange your vows, your honeymoon begins. Sandals are experts in helping couples plan destination weddings and honeymoons so it made sense to combine the two to create a dream wedding and a memorable honeymoon in one.

They understand you have a vision of how your wedding day should be, right down to the finest details, alongside a need to reflect your own personal style. The dedicated wedding co-ordinator will work closely with you to ensure a unique celebration, while offering advice and inspiration on every aspect, the inevitable logistics of a wedding abroad, and, of course, the all-important legal side. You may want to have an intimate ceremony for just the two of you with close family and friends, or a larger group celebration, which can easily be arranged.

While much of the initial wedding planning is done in the weeks before the big day, it’s very useful for you to meet your wedding co-ordinator face-to-face. They will ensure you have the wedding of your dreams that reflects your own personal style. You’ll be invited to go through everything before the big day, from the choice of wedding locations, both outdoors and indoors (in case of ‘liquid sunshine’!), and will even get to have a cake tasting.
