Small Hope's Bahamian Weddings and Honeymoons

Bahamas Wedding at Andros Island, Bahamas - Bahamas Honeymoon

Small Hope's Tropical Island Weddings and Honeymoons Get married on the beach in a simple ceremony by the sea. We'll arrange it all, plus a reception for up to forty of your closest friends and family. All you have to do is show up!

For more than forty years, weddings have been a celebrated part of life at Small Hope Bay. Three generations of Birches have been married here. We'll bring a family warmth and tropical style to your Bahamas wedding day.

We let the natural beauty of our Bahamas island beaches provide the magnificent backdrop. We take care of everything – from arranging the paperwork and contacting the appropriate officials to perform the ceremony, to hosting your reception, including tasty appetizers of our island specialties. An elegant, tropical-style wedding cake, and sparkling champagne complete the celebration that usually rolls right into the dinner hour at Small Hope Bay Lodge.

We will capture the event on video, using your favorite music for the ceremony and reception. We will also take your digital pictures for you. All you have to do is show up and enjoy the moment! You might even want to stick around for the honeymoon, and enjoy our honeymoon cabin and the great packages we have to offer!

As with all things in life the weather can be a bit unpredictable. If it rains, we can have your ceremony inside our glass room or lounge. Whatever the situation, we will take care of everything so you can relax and have a wonderful wedding day.

TESTIMONIALS - Bahamas Wedding

"Thanks to everyone for the best island wedding and honeymoon that anyone could possibly have. The video is great, the photos are great, the memories are unbelievable and certainly do not translate into mere words when we're trying to tell our fellow island-lovers what it is really like at Small Hope Bay Lodge. Our major quandry now (after the new sailboat, of course) is whether we can wait until our anniversary date for another visit, or if we're gonna have to have a practice run before then just to keep our hands in. Many, many, many thanks."

-- Tom & Terri Nelson
