Episode 6: Choosing a unique wedding venue….The Caribbean

Deciding on your wedding venue is indeed one of the most important decisions you will make for your wedding. Whether you are getting married at home or abroad the location you choose will set the mood and the tone for your whole wedding, and will be the focus of your pictures and videos for years to come.

This is where I believe a good wedding planner can come into their own, as they not only get to know you both but will know what you are like and what you are looking for. They therefore should be able to provide you with a number of properties that hopefully you will not only fall in love with but will also accommodate your guest numbers and fit your budget.

As the owner of Pierre Carr, Exclusive Tropical Weddings I am always on the look out for unique wedding locations, so for this month I wanted to give you a little insight into some of the places I have discovered and why they are unique.

Focusing on the Caribbean first,  in the sixth episode of The Butterfly Journal I speak to William Gordon, owner of Fustic House a private estate on the West coast of Barbados, whose property is described by the national trust as the ‘Jewel of the Caribbean’.

Set in 11 acres of land, which dates back to 700 ad, William explains in the episode about the beauty of the property. With designs by Oliver Messel, the discovery of the Arawak caves and the very private and personal service that you would receive when you are on property all which helps to make it unique.

To give you an idea of the property see a couple of the pictures below.

For another option there is the Half Moon resort in Jamaica, which has long, been the destination of choice for the world’s elite. Set on 400 acres of land bordered by an idyllic two-mile white sand beach, Half Moon has everything, including a dolphin lagoon, which in our podcast Myrtle Dwyer, Director of Sales and Marketing explains how Bruno (the Dolphin) can participate in your nuptials.

With a combination of  30 unique locations to get married as well as the dolphins, Half Moon again offers something quite unique. See below for a couple of pictures.
