If you are reading this post, it means you’re interested in yacht weddings in the Caribbean. Either you want to say “I do – on a beach or say your wedding vows on a lush tropical hillside with an 18th-century sugar mill acting as a backdrop. Do you want to tie the knot on an uninhabited island smaller than half an acre or on the bow of a gorgeously majestic yacht? The United States and British Virgin Islands make as some of the best places you can have the nuptial ceremony of your dreams, affording you the avenue to pull off your big day from crewed charter yachts. If you are planning a destination wedding in any of these beauteous locations, here are some of the best places to consider.
Magens Bay, St Thomas
This nice beach is located north of the island, boasting as the longest in the United State Virgin Islands and stretching nearly a mile. With a well-protected anchorage and lovely surrounding, Magens’ Bay enjoys water sports such as jet skis, stand-up paddleboards and much more fun, which you and your beloved can engage in or watch before and or after the ceremony. The park features a handful of pavilions, a provision which makes it easy for vendors set up anything from beach BBQ to a fancy DJ’d wedding reception. Be sure to check out the Floating Massage Spa Yacht often anchored right off the beach at Magens Bay.
Annaberg Ruins, St John
An old sugar mill, this eye-catching spot was constructed in the 18th century, serving as a factory for sugar, molasses and rum. If you pick Annaberg Ruins as your wedding destination, then the best time to have the ceremony should be in the late afternoon, when the crowds are no longer around, giving way for you and your small group of guests to soak in breathtaking views of the sunset. Thanks to the presence of beautiful stone structures, you need not to scamper for a backdrop for wedding shots. The historic location is also upped by a spectacular scenery afforded on the backs of Leinster Bay, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola and St. John’s extravagant surrounding wildlife.
Cow Wreck Beach, Anegada, BVI
Commonly called the “drowned island”, Anegada has many a place in the hearts of different people, from wedding planners to couples themselves. Unlike many others of the Virgin Islands, the Cow Wreck Beach starkly resembles the famous Bahamian islands more than anyone else. The highest point of this island is 28 feet, which makes the sandy haven a must see while you are on your crewed charter yacht. This is one place you can rent scooters, chase flamingos and kiteboard on the beach which faces the Northwest – with remarkable snorkeling just off the beach. There’s also a beach bar and grill that can effortlessly cater to your wedding reception.
Trunk Bay, St John
This location has been named one of the top 10 beaches on the planet by Conde Nast Traveler, and Trunk Bay is nothing short of an excellent place to spend the day on your charter yacht, as the not so infamous Underwater Trail runs 650 feet long, providing a great chance to snorkel. Facing westward, this St. John beach is tipped with extraordinary sunset scenery that your photographer will surely key into to take unforgettable snaps. Also, there are facilities provided at the beach, some of which are tailored to help couples change into their wedding apparel.
Imagine having that as-far-as-we-know first kiss with your soulmate with the cool breeze over the Atlantic dashing into your hair while the giant sun sets in the background, creating a cast shadow of two legendary lovers. That, as well as many more, is what you’re bound to enjoy wedding on a beach or a yacht at the Virgin Islands.
