Dream Big or Keep it Small in The Bahamas

This is a sponsored post from the Islands of the Bahamas

With 16 main islands in The Bahamas there is plenty of scope for weddings and honeymoons of all shapes and sizes. For couples struggling with the restrictions on party numbers in the UK, a destination wedding can be the ideal way to keep the numbers small but still dream big.


Reaching your island paradise is easy, the British Airways non-stop flight from the UK to Nassau takes just 9 hours. The island capital is home to many of the luxurious resorts which can create weddings on a grand scale and yet with romantic intimacy.

The Ocean Club, a Four Seasons Resort

Head to the Out Islands, as they are known, to find idyllic secluded locations, often small, but perfectly formed. The elegant Ocean Club, a Fours Season Resort set on Paradise Island, must be the only tropical resort to be set in Versailles-inspired terraced gardens featuring a 14th Century cloister. A truly majestic backdrop for the wedding photographs!

Cape Santa Maria, Long Island

Long island, known for Dean’s Blue Hole, the world’s second largest blue hole, has so much to offer destination weddings.

Truly an island getaway, Cape Santa Maria offers bungalows and town house style villas set along a cove of gently shelving soft white sand and is a great choice if your wedding party includes youngsters as children under 12 years stay free. Simply step outside your door into the perfect setting for a simply stunning, laid back beach wedding. Cape Santa Maria also offers great amenities such as sailing, bicycles, paddle boarding and much more.

Tiamo Resort, South Andros

The unexplored natural beauty Andros gives its nickname of “the sleeping giant” making it the perfect place to say, ‘I do’ and then slip right into honeymoon mode. Gorgeous villas, some with private pools, are surrounded by palm trees and just yards from the powdery sand of the beach.  

Reached by boat or seaplane onto its private beach, Tiamo, in South Andros, offers perfect settings for your wedding, such as by the infinity pool with beautiful views of the South Bight and spectacular sunsets.  You and your wedding party can also enjoy activities such as water-skiing, kayaking and wakeboarding.

Tiamo Resort is certainly on the short list of boutique hotels in the Out Islands for a dream destination wedding.

Caerula Mar Club, South Andros

Also located in South Andros. Caerula Mar Club is the newest Out Island hotel. Caerula Mar was constructed from sustainable and natural materials and has an atmosphere of barefoot luxury. On some of the most beautiful beaches on the island, Caerula Mar also combines beauty and serenity with every facility from spa services to water sports for you and your wedding guests to enjoy. All their ceremony packages include champagne and canapes, with several breath-taking and cosy reception spots to choose from.

Coral Sands Hotel, Dunmore Town, Harbour Island

Once the capital of The Bahamas, Harbour Island is a regular award-winner for best beaches in the Caribbean, so what better place to tie the knot? With miles of pink sandy beach, exclusive tropical gardens and glorious views of the idyllic Bahamian waters, Coral Sands might just be the place of your dreams for your Bahamas Out Island wedding.

A Coral Sands wedding package includes an on-site wedding consultant, assistance with wedding documentation and even the bridal bouquet, leaving you to focus on the most important elements of your destination wedding – each other!
