The Caribbean is calling, and it’s telling you to get married in Jamaica! This island nation may be laidback, but they take destination weddings very seriously; with luxury, service, and attention to detail at the heart of everything they do. If you’re thinking about eloping to this vibrant country, we’re here to convince you that you’re making the right choice.

  1. For The Beaches

With over 700 miles of coastline, Jamaica’s certainly not short of beautiful beaches to enjoy. The island’s golden sands paired with the glistening waters of the Caribbean Sea make for the perfect backdrop for a beachfront wedding – and they certainly don’t make a bad spot for a honeymoon either!

Couples looking for a ceremony on the sands will adore Couples Swept Away, a picture-perfect resort set on the famous Seven Mile Beach. Future husbands and wives can choose from several options for their special day, from intimate gazebos perched directly on pale sands to open-air decks overlooking aquamarine shores.

Resorts in Jamaica are blessed by stunning surroundings, and it’s this natural beauty that continues to inspire wedding venues across the island. As well as the classic beach and garden settings Jamaica is renowned for, hoteliers continue to bring new and exciting destinations to tie the knot. Sandals South Coast offers couples the chance to wed in a spectacular Over-The-Water Wedding Chapel, Couples Negril has a unique treehouse locale, and Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort is stationed on its own private island. There’s truly somewhere for every kind of bride and groom.

With temperatures rarely dipping below 25°C, Jamaica is a superb destination to get married no matter the time of year. For the best weather, our Wedding Experts recommend tying the knot between the months of December through to mid-April, when the island is at its driest and sunniest – and the UK at its wettest and coldest!

  1. For The Cuisine

If we could describe Jamaica’s cuisine in a few words, we would have to say: seasoned, soulful, and stuffed full of flavour. The island’s five-star restaurants and rustic beach shacks may offer different dining experiences, but the quality of food is always same: exceptional.

With cooking techniques and flavours influenced from around the globe, everyone is catered to in Jamaica. So, if you fancy a traditional Jamaican feast or rustic Italian banquet, you can be rest assured you’ll find the right menu for you and your guests, Though whatever dining options you choose, we do always suggest ordering a cup of Blue Mountain coffee to wash it all down with!

  1. For The Rum

It’s no secret that Jamaica produces some of the finest rums in the world, and it would certainly be a shame not to sample a tumbler (or two!) whilst away on your trip. Joining a tour of one of the island’s many distilleries is great fun for those looking to celebrate their hen/stag-do abroad, or why not elect this traditional Jamaican liquor as the beverage to toast your marriage to?

From parasailing to paragliding, snorkelling to scuba diving, Jamaica offers a plethora of activities from the sky to the sea. Guests will have plenty to keep themselves entertained in the days and nights following up to and after your wedding, giving you plenty of time to take care of any final arrangements – or take a well-deserved break from the in-laws!

  1. For The Honeymoon

One of the best things about getting married in Jamaica is that you can honeymoon there too! Opt to stay at your same resort to spend time with friends and family post-nuptials, or venture elsewhere to discover another part of the island.
