You and your guests are sure to enjoy an evening cruise on a luxury yacht charter. You will see Bermuda’s colorful water-front homes while cruising through hidden bays and coves. You can easily combine any of the other venues for your wedding and host your reception aboard a luxury yacht. There are many venues on this list that are a short distance walk to a dock where a yacht can be waiting for everyone. Or better yet, since this is one of the most precious moments in your life, there can be horses & carriages or a small train that can be used to transport you and your guests. The options are immense. Bermuda offers some beautiful yachts to choose from. Take for example two of the larger ones below:

Spirit of Bermuda: This is a 112′ modern built Bermuda sloop. The three-masted sailing vessel will turn heads as you and your guests sail around the island’s waters. The yacht has a seating capacity for up to 50 people to host a wedding on board.

Bermuda Botanical Gardens

The Botanical Gardens is a 35 acre park in the center of Bermuda with a variety of flowers, shrubs, and trees. Countless weddings have taken place on the garden’s grounds and multiple couples have stopped by simply for their wedding photos. Head to the bright and fragrant rose garden, the huge banyan trees with their protruding root systems, or any of the other hidden areas in these amazing gardens.

In An Old Church

You can have your wedding in an old Bermuda church and then celebrate with a reception at any of these other venues on the list. There are many churches in Bermuda that date back to the late 16th and 17th centuries and the island is known for the high amount of churches per square mile compared to anywhere else in the world.

  14. Amanda says:

    Hi – Can you confirm the amount we need to send to the Registrar general in 2015 to obtain a license and certificate? $354 ? Also, what does the goverment site mean when it states you need permission from clergy to get married on beach? Lastly, do USA citizens need to bring birth certificates, Social security cards, or proof of single?

    • John says:

      Hi Amanda,

      That is the price, but before you send in your check, call the Registrar and follow their instructions about filling out the form. They are extremely helpful. Here are some contact details: (441) 297-7709 | kminors@gov.bm. You do not need permission to get married on the beach from a clergy, but you will need to apply for a public permit through the Parks Department. What they mean is that some clergy will only marry in their church while others will marry outside, such as on a beach. The Registrar General will be able to send you a list of officiants and you can find a clergyman who will marry you on the beach. No proof of of being single is required. Head to this page on our website and you can find the Notice of Intended Marriage to download: FAQs for a Bermuda Wedding Fill this form out and you will be able to apply for your marriage certificate. Take note of the dates for the form as this is important, “The form must be filled out in full and received by the Registrar General’s office at least 15 days prior to the wedding and it is valid for you to have your wedding at any date up to 3 months after the license has been issued.” If you have questions about the form, the Registrar General is quick to break everything down in regards to requirements and what you will need.

      Hope this helps,
      John

  15. Tami says:

    HI! I booked a cruise to Bermuda out of Baltimore, MD This October 2015, and we’d like to get married on October 11 with just the two of us if you could give me an price if possible. We’d like to do it at a Moongate overlooking the beach/ocean, with several pictures, and maybe just flowers for me with a minister and I guess transportation to the wedding site and back. I also saw some where you can have a private dinner on the beach and was curious what something like that would cost to arrange. Thanks!.

    • John says:

      Hi Tami,

  19. beth taylor says:

    I have clients looking for a CLIFF WEDDING – google searches sent me to you. What do you suggest?

    • John says:

      Hi Beth, thanks for reaching out to us. I would suggest Astwood Park as a great place for a cliff wedding. If it is simply a beautiful view that your clients are after, then the Commissioner’s House in the Royal Naval Dockyard or Fort Scaur are great places to consider as well.

      Kind regards,
      John

  21. Tiffany says:

    Hello,

    I’m thinking about taking a cruise to bermuda with all of my guests and having a wedding in an old or unfinished church in Bermuda. I’m open to other ideas, but really like the idea of getting married in a church. Can you send me information concerning transportation from the cruise ship to the wedding destination? I’d also like for the church to be on or very close to the beach because I’d like to have my reception on the beach. Also, I like the idea of places that are all inclusive so I’m not buying each individual chair, table, etc. for the ceremony and reception. Trying to be as cost effective as possible. Thank you!

    Tiffany

    • John says:
