Touch Down For Romance In The 16 Islands of The Bahamas
Inter-island flights lasting from just 15 to 90 minutes will take the 14 remaining couples to other main islands in this tropical archipelago. Also joining them will be their 32 witnesses, two per couple, plus about fifty extra family and friends who have booked through joint sponsor Kuoni to join the couples’ once-in-a-lifetime Caribbean wedding experience.
Not simply beach weddings, these are destination weddings with a difference. For example:
Jade & Mikhail have so many guests coming from around the world to The Berry Islands that the small CarrieEarl hotel cannot accommodate them all. Berry Islands’ residents are opening their homes to put up the extra guests so that all can enjoy the wedding ceremony at sea. No need for a beribboned bridal car when you are tying the ‘Nautical Love Knot’ aboard a white catamaran floating on an azure ocean.
There’s no limousine either for Carla and Daniel for their ‘Light Up My Love’ marriage ceremony in The Abacos. A small boat ferries the groom and witness across the harbour to await the bride’s arrival, travelling by little golf cart with her witness to the candy-striped Elbow Cay Lighthouse.
The ‘Colour Me with Love’ wedding in Nassau will be a loud, lively and colourful celebration with a band of Junkanoo musicians, in bright handmade costumes. A wedding party that’s sure to be a hit with the 7 children in Claire and Jason’s wedding party of twelve.
Mary and James are hopping over to Grand Bahama Island to dive into the ocean and be married by the local pastor, also in his scuba gear. Theirs will be an ‘Enchanted Encounter’ as they make their vows on the ocean floor attended by dolphins and other Bahamian marine life.
These are just four of the 16 weddings taking place on 16th May on 16 different islands. Each couple won their wonderful wedding, a week in The Islands of The Bahamas, and all have two special guests with them as witnesses. All hosted by the Bahamas Tourist Office, in addition they have wedding rings from Goldsmiths and bridal gowns from the Tia designer range by Benjamin Roberts. The 16 different ceremonies are being videographed to give each couple a long-term record of their wedding experience of a lifetime.
