I recently had the opportunity to spend some time on the Island of Bermuda and could not help but take note of what a wonderful destination location this is for a wedding. It is a short plane ride from the East coast and offers so many great places to hold a ceremony and reception.
I know many couples look at Bermuda as a honeymoon location but, if you are planning a destination wedding, I would certainly add this to the list of options. In looking at venues in Bermuda one of the best places to start is the Mandarin Oriental Elbow Beach. Elbow Beach itself is beautiful with soft white sand and gorgeous, clear blue water. Add to that the great service and beautiful grounds of the Mandarin Oriental and you have a perfect combination.
Across the island you will find another wonderful venue at the Fairmont Southampton. With both garden and beachside options for ceremonies, and a variety of event spaces for receptions, the Fairmont is an excellent option for a Bermuda wedding.
What is great about Bermuda are some of the truly unique options for holding your wedding ceremony. Take for example the "Moongates" located at various points on the island. Couples can get married by the Moongate and afterward they walk through the limestone arch for good luck.
Or, you can take advantage of the history of Bermuda and plan your ceremony in a unique setting such as St. Catherine Fort just outside of the original settlement of St. Georges. Or consider the beautiful Bermuda Botanical Gardens that date back to 1898.
