Organise your wedding around a theme to play up your personality and bring deeper meaning to the big day. Have a "green" celebration on the water with organic wedding cake, say "I do" at sunset on pink sand or even get married underground in an ancient cave – the small island of Bermuda is full of big possibilities.
Many of the island's hotels and resorts are experts in destination weddings, with an emphasis on special themes to make your wedding day fulfill your wildest dreams. Here are just a few themes to consider.
1 Eco-Friendly Elegance: The Fairmont Southampton
A "green" wedding at the Fairmont Southampton can be held on a private beach with eco-conscious touches like local hand-tied bouquets and organic wedding cakes. As an added activity, some couples take an eco-tour of Sandys Parish and plant their very own Bermuda cedar tree to commemorate their special day.
Imagine your wedding on a dramatic harbourfront terrace, backlit by painted sunset skies. The Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Resort & Spa will immerse you in the breathtaking natural beauty and distinctive culture of Bermuda.
3 Island Nostalgia: Elbow Beach, Bermuda
With over 100 years of hospitality experience, Elbow Beach, Bermuda offers the elegance of a traditional Bermudian wedding in a timeless, true-to-Bermuda setting.
4 A Water-Loving Palette: The Reefs
Enjoy a waterfront wedding in a celebration of blues and whites at The Reefs. Recite your vows on a deck over the ocean with views of the beach, rocky cliffs and Bermuda's South Shore.
5 Making Waves: Coco Reef Resort
A beautiful beach, a clear blue sky, a love united. Say "I do" as the waves crash in the background at the Coco Reef Resort. Step right over to an outdoor terrace overlooking the glimmering ocean for your reception – an ideal beach wedding.
6 Moongate Traditions: Hamilton Princess & Beach Club
Say "I do" under one of Bermuda's intriguing moongates – you'll get great photos and, if the legend is correct, good luck. The Hamilton Princess & Beach Club happens to have moongate right on site. Plus, after the festivities, you can enjoy Champagne and strawberries in your rose petal-strewn hotel suite.
