Looking for a different style of destination wedding? How about combining your nuptials with a Caribbean Cruise exploring the culture and colours of the region, soaking up the warm tropical sun rays? It’s a great way of bringing friends and family together with you on the ultimate adventure – and get the best of both worlds by getting married in Barbados with Island Bliss Weddings. Their expertise in creating a gorgeous wedding day will bring your vision to life with ease and peace of mind.
Whether you’re dreaming of an intimate wedding for two or one with your close family and friends set with the sparkling turquoise waters and white sandy secluded beaches, Barbados offers a stunning back-drop for your unique wedding.
If not on a beach, imagine your dream day at a botanical garden surrounded by lush tropical flowers or even a traditional ceremony at one of our quaint parish churches; Maybe you are fond of history and prefer to be wed or renew your vows at a historical site such as St. Nicholas Abbey, one of the only three remaining genuine Jacobean mansions in the western hemisphere.
An unforgettable romantic adventure of getting married in Barbados is quite easy and straight forward; Before you even step foot on board the cruise, all the details of your wedding will be arranged, allowing you to relax and enjoy your time on the ocean, knowing that everything is taken care of.
The team at Island Bliss Weddings guide you through every step, making sure all details are to your specifications, personal style and taste.
The Special Day
On your special day you (the couple) will be met at the cruise terminal by a member of the Island Bliss team, who will accompany you to the Ministry of Home Affairs to complete the legal paper work. Having been briefed beforehand of the documents required you can obtain your Marriage license within an hour.
Then it’s time to get ready! You have the option of leaving the ship already dressed in your bridal attire, or return to the ship after the paper work is done to get ready. There is also the option of pre arranging a day room at nearby hotel.
Want to skip the paperwork on the island? No problem. Another way to simplify your day is to get married at a court in your home town so that you can go straight into the celebration of having a symbolic ceremony with one of the stunning backdrops Barbados has to offer.
As soon as you are ready, it’s then off to your pre-arranged ceremony location to find everything waiting for you exactly as you planned, including your guests – they are met at the cruise terminal and transported to the ceremony to witness you say I do!
On arrival, you can enjoy a champagne toast, canapés and music while you mingle and document the memories with the help of a professional photographer; and after saying I do, celebrate with a lunch reception at one of our fine ocean front restaurants, creating an experience full of special moments!
Alas, it’s then time to be transported back to your vessel to continue celebrating onboard as you begin your new life as husband and wife!
