Original, alluring and far from your everyday, Bermuda is a fitting location for planning a day like no other. From cool celebrations on the water, to dreamy ceremonies in an ancient underground cave, to saying “I do" on pink sand against cotton candy skies – play up your personality and bring deeper meaning to the occasion. This small island 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: Rosewood Bermuda
A "green" wedding at Rosewood Bermuda can be held on a private beach with eco-conscious touches like local, hand-tied bouquets made from wild foliage, an organic wedding cake with edible flowers and fresh produce grown in the kitchen garden. As an added activity, couples can 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, while still offering the comforts of an island resort with fine-dining, full-service spa and plenty of accommodation options for your guests.
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. Pastel, cottage-style rooms are built on the hillside leading to the pristine, pink sand beach. Fresh seafood and live entertainment are the order of the day at Lido Complex.
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.
7 Sunset & Pink Sand: Coral Beach Club
Exchange vows and backdrops with your pick of the Croquet or Wedding Lawns or the prized Longtail Terrace, a marble deck overlooking picture-perfect Coral Beach. The evening sunset will add a warm glow to the turquoise water as you enjoy welcome cocktails at the beach bar.
