Barbados makes the perfect destination to elope in an intimate ceremony! We wanted to compile inspiration to inspire you as you beginning the process of planning your extraordinary, intimate nuptials. Fabulous décor for a perfect ceremony on the beach is what we all dream of when we think of jetting off to elope in the Caribbean. Here are a few things we love that make up a romantic beach elopement in Barbados:

  • Floral: An abundance of flowers for your beach nuptials takes our top spot in creating a unique environment for a beach elopement. Flowers can carry your color scheme! They can be simple and elegant or full and luscious. Flowers are a wow factor in pictures and make everything look even more romantic and beautiful.
  • Linens: We love great flowey linen that blows so perfectly in the ocean breeze at sunset. Tied back with flowers or ribbon or rope, looped and draped in the exact spots adds some great detail to your elopement. Of course you need an archway for all this, and that’s the next piece of our beach elopement décor.
  • Archway/Chuppa: It’s always nice to have something to stand under as you profess your love to one another. Since it’s just the two of you, the archway plays a role in pulling your elopement ceremony together and makes for a beautiful photo backdrop; it’s the perfect chance to add that luxurious personal touch to your elopement.
  • Lanterns: When there’s no guest, there’s no aisle. Lanterns are a great way to set a path. Since elopements on the beach are usually at sunset, the lanterns with a flickering candles in them adds the perfect romantic touch for when the sun is setting.

The captivating clear blue water, luscious gardens, fabulous food and beautiful resorts are just some of the great things Barbados has to offer. Known as the gem of the Caribbean to all who live and vacation here, Barbados offers a variety of adventure, romance and luxury. Today, we’re sharing with you the 5 reasons why you should elope here in Barbados.

Travel

Barbados is located in the lesser Antilles and flying here is quite easy. There are direct flights from Miami, New York, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, Boston, Toronto, Germany and the UK with a few flights a day for ease and convenience.

Luxury

Barbados has perfected the luxurious vacation (and wedding!)– which is why celebrities visit Barbados every year. Stay at Sandy Lane Resort, voted as one of the most Hotels in the world by Forbes, Travel & Leisure, and Condé Nast. Or stay in one of our many posh villas which range in style from modern to traditional Caribbean. You can hire your own renowned person on-site chef and have a personal butler cater to your every need during your stay.

Adventure

Barbados has limitless amounts of activities for the adventurous couple– especially for those of you who want to skip a beach day and explore! Some fun activities include island touring, standup paddle boarding, snorkeling and ship wreck diving, swimming with turtles, hiking, and catamaran cruisin’ (for our friends who prefer adventure to begin and end with adult beverages!).

Unique Culture

The Barbados culture is what captivates our visitors. Bajan’s take pride in their country and culture– and love to share it with anyone who visits. The food is some of the worlds best: from 5 star dining to rum shop haute couture, we have something for everyone. The local fish fry in Oistins on a Friday night is a great spot for local food, entertainment, and cheers with a cold Banks Beer.

Venues & Vendors

Barbados’ venues for destination weddings are endless. You can elope with your toes in the sand or in an old historical church. Our beaches are not private, so you have access to most beaches on our island for your unique elopement. If you’re looking for something beyond-the-beach, there are gardens, historical sites, plantation homes and even cliff side locations.

Introducing Luxury Barbados Elopements

Every love story is unique and different
AND WE BELIEVE YOUR ELOPEMENT SHOULD BE, TOO.

If you’ve been following along on Instagram and Facebook, we’ve been working hard at Team Jubilee on a new service we are really excited about! When we launched our Caribbean brand two years ago, my mission was to bring our sense of style and approach to Barbados. As our business grows, I wanted to continue to innovate our approach and the services we offer. I’m excited to announce that we are transforming the idea of elopements to be more than a short ceremony– but rather, an intimate wedding designed and planned the Jubilee way!

Our Approach to Elopements

We believe in choosing what is right for you when it comes to your wedding day.  We also believe that an elopement should be just as special, beautiful and meaningful as the large wedding bashes you’ve attended of friends and family over the years.

What’s more romantic than just the two of you (and maybe a few guests) jetting off to our beautiful island of Barbados to profess your love? Honestly, we can’t think of anything more special! Our approach to elopements is the same approach we provide to our large destination clients: detailed, fun, luxurious and a reflect of you. We work with our elopement couples to curate an elopement experience in Barbados that is fully customized based on your aesthetic and unique love story.

How we are redefining the Elopement in Barbados

Barbados has so much to offer for your elopement! You can exchange vows in a 300 hundred year old church, on our untouched beaches against backdrops of the turquoise Caribbean sea, or in an abundant tropical garden. After, an intimate dinner awaits by a renowned private chef on the beach, in one of our 5-star restaurants, or perhaps in a modern villa. The options are endless, and just like you, we don’t believe in cookie cutter elopements.

No matter your idea for your intimate elopement, it’s our job to make it come to fruition. Our elopement clients hire us to not only plan an amazing adventure for their wedding, but also design a day that is beautiful in every way. From ceremony arbors draped in white fabric and exotic flowers, to a table for 10 on the beach under the glow of stars and candlelight– each elopement story is as beautiful as it is unique.

Why are we the Elopement Experts?

Aside from my husband and I choosing to elope ourselves (…. and it was MAGICAL), we’ve been planning and designing weddings all over the world for almost 10 years. We’re sticklers for the details and believe that they matter. We live for entertaining, and believe that some of the most memorable experiences are best shared with only a few. When our clients give us the opportunity to plan something truly special for them– we put every ounce of creativity, love, and care into making their experience more than they dreamed of.
