Sandals - over the water chapelCeremony Venues

One of the most exciting new options for Sandals Weddings is the Over-the-Water Wedding Chapels. The above chapel is at Sandals South Coast in Whitehouse, Jamaica. They also have over-the-water chapels at Sandals Grande St. Lucian, Sandals Ochi, and Sandals Montego Bay. The stunning venue option has a 360-degree view and glass floor aisle. It is truly one of the most unique ceremony you can find.

Sandals Montego Bay also has an intimate resort chapel option for your ceremony. The inside has traditional wooden pews and an elevated alter. The outside path, lined with fountains and lush greenery, ensures your walk down the aisle is beautiful from start to finish.

If you are looking for something a bit more low-key but not so traditional, opt for the oceanfront gazebo. This option is available at all Sandals properties except for Barbados. Each gazebo has a charming vaulted roof and gorgeous ocean views with tiled floors. This is great if you’ve dreamed of a beach wedding but don’t want sand everywhere. There are also garden gazebos at most Sandals resorts.

Sandals - European garden

Another unique ceremony option is the European Wedding Garden, pictured above at Sandals Emerald Bay in Great Exumas, Bahamas. This is also available at Sandals Grande Antigua and Sandals Ochi. Each garden provides an elegant backdrop with manicured gardens and calming pools. View all of the wedding venue options by resort and destination here.
