Cayman Island Weddings
The Cayman Island's offer the perfect luxury Caribbean wedding destination. Superb unspoilt beaches, dazzling marine life and a fantastic range of hotels, restaurants and activities make the Cayman Islands the perfect Caribbean wedding destination.
Why marry on the Cayman Islands?
Location, location, location: Beach, boat, gazebo in tropical gardens, underwater, church… you can marry in style. Whatever type of wedding you would prefer the Cayman Islands offer a great piece of unspoilt Caribbean paradise for your perfect wedding venue.
As well as a tropical island setting with white-sand beaches, exotic palms and pastel-painted houses, the Cayman Islands have the advantage of being an incredibly westernised destination: scrupulously clean, unfailingly safe and unbeatably friendly.
In many other Caribbean islands you might find yourself limited to the hotels when looking for a suitable venue for a smooth service. In the Cayman
Islands, you can choose venues ranging from large hotels to tiny guesthouses, the beach or the Botanic Park, the church or the synagogue, underwater or in a boat. The choice is yours.
It is also important to remember that unlike many other destinations popular with couples, on the Cayman Islands there is only one wedding per
venue, per day – so your day will be truly special.
Overseas weddings often involve bureaucratic procedures that can be more hassle than they are worth, like arriving several days before the ceremony or providing baffling paperwork. In the Cayman Islands you can arrive on the same day you are married and hardly need more than your passport!
Which Island will be the best for your wedding?
The Cayman Islands consist of three Islands each with its own distinct feel.
Grand Cayman is the largest, the international gateway and has the most facilities and attractions: hotels of all sizes and star-ratings, restaurants
serving cuisines of various nationalities, a vast menu of cultural and active attractions and of course the capital of the Cayman Islands, George Town.
Little Cayman offers a more intimate experience with smaller properties and quieter beaches. Here there are just 150 residents, all of whom are
outnumbered by the iguanas, who have right of way. There are still loads of natural attractions and active pursuits to occupy couples, but Little Cayman is best for those who are happy at a slower pace.
Eco-retreat Cayman Brac is a protected wilderness and an eco-friendly destination, which makes a unique venue for nature-lovers and divers. The Brac is for those who like their landscapes rugged and a rustic experience to boot – although you’ll still find a high quality of accommodation.
Types and Styles of weddings.
No matter the style or type of wedding you are looking for the Cayman Islands cater for them all.
Traditional and religious.
You may wish to marry in a religious setting, or a venue with cultural or historical significance. That’s not a problem in the Cayman Islands, which
boasts plenty of unique properties, in addition to its pristine beaches.
The Cayman Islands are incredibly multi-cultural which means there are religious venues of all faiths and denominations. There are quaint chapels or stately churches offering religious wedding services for Catholics, numerous Protestant denominations and other Christian-based faiths.
Wedding planners can also arrange weddings for Hindus and Buddhists and on Cayman Brac one of the local residents has even built a beautiful synagogue in his garden, as a gift to his wife. This lovely building is also available for wedding ceremonies.
If you are looking for a traditional style wedding without the religious element there are plenty of options available within the Cayman Islands. For
instance why not try Grand Old House, an old coconut plantation just south of capital George Town in Grand Cayman. Looking out to sea, Grand Old House is known for its fine dining, set in carefully preserved colonial splendour. Alternatively, Pedro St. James is where democracy was born on the Cayman Islands. This carefully reconstructed historic house is set in pristine grounds, with carefully tended lawns perched on a limestone outcrop above the blue sea. It makes an impressive and prestigious venue for a wedding.
Resort or Hotel weddings
You may want the splendour and space of a large resort or the privacy and intimacy of a boutique hotel. These are just a few examples of the types of weddings which are available at a few of the resorts. For further information or special requests and assistance in choosing your perfect venue then please give us a call and we will assist you in finding your perfect Cayman Island venue.
The Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman is the only five-diamond resort in the country. Couples can say their vows in a gorgeous gazebo on the great lawn or
in front of the resort on the famous Seven Mile Beach. And after-celebrations have even more choice, from the Ballroom Terrace to the hotel’s very own, sleek and sophisticated schooner. Onsite Silver Rain, a La Prairie Spa, is the perfect place for the bridal party to prepare and pamper.
The Reef Resort in Grand Cayman’s east end is a quiet beach location with a low-key atmosphere. There are several wedding packages on offer so you can tailor the perfect ceremony, held under a decorated bamboo wedding arch with a conch shell and rose petal aisle, accompanied by a harpist or steel drums and followed by chilled French champagne, fine Icoa handmade Cayman chocolates, or even a pair of Cuban cigars.
The best of both:
The Caribbean Club on Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach boasts the space and convenience of its private condos, with the luxury and service of a boutique hotel, including onsite Italian restaurant Luca. The condo accommodation is perfect for large wedding parties and families who want to be close-by but separate.
Romantic hideaway: The Southern Cross Club on Little Cayman is secluded without being pretentious. Personalised ceremonies can be held under the stars or on a private deserted island. The resort’s private rooms are situated along the white coral sand beach, facing the gorgeous South Hole Sound and the uninhabited Owen Island.
Alternative wedding styles.
Underwater and diving weddings:
The Cayman Islands is famous for its diving so it’s no wonder the destination has perfected its sub-aqua wedding offering. There are several dive operators that offer weddings or vow renewals under the sea. If the idea of a private ceremony with just the official and the fish looking on is your perfect wedding venue then the Cayman Islands will be just perfect for you.
Or if you don’t fancy getting your feet wet but like the idea of getting married or renewing your vows under the sea the how about getting married on the 48 seat Atlantis submarine. The wedding needs to be made official back on dry land, due to the quirky fact that no wedding can take place behind locked doors (in case either of the party get cold feet at the last minute) and of course the submarine hatch needs to be locked before the dive.
On board a ship:
If you fancy exchanging vows on the water rather than below the Cayman Islands provide a range of options from a luxury yacht, a two mast schooner or even a replica of a 17th century pirate ship.
Cayman Island Turtle Farm:
The marine adventure park also offer couples the chance to marry in front of the turtle breeding pond or the poolside Breaker’s Lagoon with its cascading waterfall.
