Best Jamaica Destination Weddings

Royal Botanical Gardens

In the suburbs of Kingston, The Royal Botanical Gardens at Hope is popular with eco-astute couples who exchange vows in the Orchid House, at the tranquil Lily Pond or on majestic Palm Avenue lined with stately coconut palm trees.

Dolphin Cove

For one of the most unique wedding ceremonies in the world, Dolphin Cove in Negril offers dolphin weddings where the gentle mammals hold the rings in their mouths and act as witnesses while awestruck couples say I Do and wedding guests snap dozens of photographs. After the ceremony, couples can enjoy a Dolphin Swim with their ocean ring bearers.

On the Beach

Tried and true, barefoot on the beach is still the most popular wedding venue in Jamaica. From the sugary sand on the northwest coast to secluded slivers on the less-touristy south coast, seaside ceremonies are worth a million memories. On Cornwall Beach fronting the Hip Strip in Montego Bay, barefoot on the beach weddings are a breeze in a gazebo adorned with bouquets of vibrant blooms. A minister not only performs the ceremony but also offers counseling beforehand to warm up cold feet while the Cornwall's resident chef whips up a spicy Jamaican feast fit for a Queen and King. For the independent-minded couple who prefer a wedding without all the fanfare, a ceremony away from the resort is part of the charm.

Garden Parish

Dubbed the Garden Parish, St. Ann in Ocho Rios tempts couples with awe-inspiring views of gushing waterfalls and rainforests brimming with wild ferns. With a name that gets its meaning from the Arawak word for 'paradise', Coyaba River Garden is teeming with green backdrops at every turn while the Cranbrook Flower Forest is a garden within a park where the rare Triangle Palm and Traveller's Palm stand proud during a wedding ceremony.

I Do at 700 Feet

Sky-high weddings are taking off at Rainforest Adventures at Mystic Mountain in Ocho Rios, about ninety minutes from the international airport in Montego Bay. The 'I Do at 700 Feet' ceremony woos daring couples who have dreamed of getting hitched while flying high through the treetops on the Sky Explorer or on the green lawn atop Mystic Mountain. Weddings include photographs of the high-octane ceremony and two witnesses if you forgot to bring them with you.
