Best Barbados Destination Weddings

The Crane Resort

The cliffs, dunes and pink sand are a classic Caribbean wedding backdrop at The Crane Resort. With a storied past that couples enjoy recounting to their guests, it was once considered improper for ladies to be seen swimming in public, however, by 1769 a dip in the sea was so popular that a discreet bathing area was built just for women. Dubbed the "Horse" for its shape, it was reachable only by steps cut into the sea cliff and today those same steps can be seen on the far side of the resort and is a unique spot for snapping wedding photos.

Sandy Lane

Saluted as the premier address in the Caribbean, Sandy Lane's legendary style makes it one of the most prestigious hotels in the world. Since opening in 1961, its name has been synonymous with gourmet candle-lit dinners set against the Caribbean Sea, a butler-drawn bubble bath with chocolate truffles and couples saying I Do as a string quartet performs on the Starlight Terrace.

Mango Bay Beach Resort

In hip Holetown, Mango Bay Resort is popular for a host of extras including a steel band performing at the ceremony, top-shelf bottles of bubbly and wedding snaps taken by a professional photographer. For couples honeymooning at the resort and their guests looking for a few days away from the nine-to-five, two penthouse suites invite with comfy living rooms and spacious wrap-around balconies that are glass-enclosed on two sides giving way to wonderful views of the sea.

The Nidhe Israel Synagogue

For couples of the Jewish faith, The Nidhe Israel Synagogue in Bridgetown was built in 1654, destroyed by a hurricane in 1831, rebuilt a year later and then sold in 1929. In 1983, it was bought back by the local Jewish community and today stands proud with its historic Gothic arches. A Barbados National Trust protected building; the synagogue is delighted to host weddings when prior arrangements are made by the couple and their Rabbi.

Tamarind Resort

At the Tamarind Resort in Paynes Bay, nothing says a wedding toast sweeter than a watermelon martini as a saxophonist plays a roster of Lionel Ritchie tunes. A morning massage with candles and rose petals and viewing of the sunset from the balcony of Room 202 seal the deal for couples tying the knot or enjoying a honeymoon to remember.
