The natural beauty of Bermuda makes for an exquisite backdrop for any wedding, regardless of theme or location.  Bermuda law allows that weddings may be held in all public spaces, opening up a wide range of venues for couples to choose from.  From the elegant churches to pink sand beaches, you and your guests will find the views almost as memorable as the sight of you and your fiancée vowing to love one another forever.

Many couples find that one of the biggest challenges associated with planning a destination wedding is choosing an appropriate venue without being able to scope out the location prior to booking it.  Doing business with a wedding or event planner is a great choice for people who are seeking someone to deal with everything on Bermuda associated with their wedding prior to the big celebration. These professionals work to make sure that your nuptials operate as smoothly and ideally as possible. Should you choose to do all the organizing on your own, deciding the style of wedding you'd like to have will assist you to narrow down your possibilities considerably, making the entire task a bit less complex.

Types of Ceremonies

Couples who choose to host their wedding event on Bermuda can tailor their marriage celebration to fulfill their every dream. Despite the fact that most commonly encountered style of wedding planned by foreigners is a seaside ceremony, this is by no means the only option available.

Traditional Wedding

If you're looking for a more traditional wedding, this type of ceremony generally takes place in a religious establishment, with relatives and friends filling the pews as the bride walks down the aisle toward her waiting groom. Once the vows are said, the wedding party and their guests typically head over to a dining hall to celebrate the romantic event. This is as much a possibility on Bermuda as anywhere else, if not more so, since located on the island are more churches per square mile than anywhere else on earth. Note that there are no rabbis living on the island, but you can arrange to have your personal rabbi come and perform your ceremony for you.  Those who wish to marry in the Roman Catholic Church must contact the Roman Catholic Chancery Office at 441-232-4414.  Your event planner can help you to find a church or temple that that accommodates your religious values.

Outdoor Wedding

It shouldn't surprise you to learn that the most common outdoor weddings are those held on the shoreline. It goes without saying that a wedding ceremony performed on the beach is a wonderful affair. With so many natural gems encompassing your wedding, like soft pink sand and lush plants, you'll find that very few extra decorations are required. In addition, weddings held on the beach are rather simple to organize, and very small weddings might not need permits.  There are eight miles of beaches available for weddings, all of which are discussed in our guide to Bermuda's Beaches

People who dream of an outdoor wedding are not solely limited to beach ceremonies. Countless All Inclusiveresorts offer villas with views of seashores, mountain ranges, and tropical vegetation. Having a wedding in a botanical garden is an additional option. For something especially distinctive and breathtaking, consider arranging a wedding underwater, complete with diving gear and spectacular sights of coral reefs.

Marriage at Sea

Bermuda provides an ideal wedding destination for couples looking to get married at sea. Travelers will discover that the Caribbean Sea presents some of the most perfectly clear, calm waters, and amazing views. You might choose to get married on board a cruise ship that makes a visit to Bermuda, or reserve a chartered vessel for a couple of hours. You can even charter the vessel for an entire day and celebrate the reception on the vessel as well.  View our guide to Sailing on Bermuda for further details.

Casual vs. Formal

Any style of wedding ceremony can be made as casual or as formal as you desire. Although destination weddings are generally thought of as informal affairs, you can dress your wedding up with formal wear and elegant adornments. Likewise, you can dress down a typically formal event such as a church wedding by seeking simple decorations and allowing your wedding party to dress casually.
