Tropical Weddings and Vows
Naussa & Paradise Island
A beautiful beginning to a lifetime of happiness starts here. Nassau, the most popular and capital city of the Bahamas, is a little more laid back than most metropolitan cities, but full of culture, modern amenities, luxurious accommodations and great duty-free shopping.
If your fantasy is to get married on a deserted island, there are many options among The Exumas’ 365 islands and cays, including a mile-long sandbar in the ocean.
The Exumas are an exotic collection of tiny jewels set in the most beautiful aquamarine and sapphire waters you could ever imagine. Foot-print free beachs and ultra-exclusive resorts make this tropical paradise a gem of the Bahamas. Great Exuma Island, along with Exuma Cays, offer an amazing variety of possibilities for your destination wedding. In fact, we say you won’t find a more perfect place. Miles of gorgeous beaches offer picture-postcard shots – numerous cays, charming churches and cultural sites provide endless possibilities for backdrops and your wedding can be tailor-made to your needs. Don’t miss out on a chance to ‘Swim with the Pigs’. No, not dolphins or sharks – pigs. The island called “Big Major Cay” is affectionately nicknamed “Pig Island” because that is where wild pigs roam free on land and water. “Although we say ‘wild’, these cute creatures are quite tame and love the tourists that visit them daily.” —Exumas–Bahamas Tourism
