Grand Cayman Destination Weddings

Your wedding should be more than a celebration.  It should be a reflection of your personalities, your joys, and your excitement for the road ahead.  Destination weddings are an exciting way to start your new lives together surrounded by your family and friends in an island paradise.

Whether you’re looking for a simple beach ceremony with your toes in the sand, a formal affair indoors, or anything in-between, we’re sure to have a villa to perfectly suit your needs.  The white sand beaches and stunning architecture available on-island will add a unique touch to your special day.  We can also assist in finding nearby accommodations for your wedding guests in price ranges to fit any budget.

From the rehearsal dinner to the reception, you want every detail to be perfect.  We at Grand Cayman Villas couldn’t be happier to help.  If you’re unsure about anything, please feel free to call us!  We take pride in only recommending knowledgeable, reliable wedding professionals from party planners to florists.

Renting a private villa may sound lavish but when you take into account that there won’t be any facility fees, strangers taking pictures of your ceremony, and the incredible flexibility for your plans, it’s more than practical.  Hotels and restaurants, after all, don’t stop doing business because you’re having an event.  Many Seven Mile Beach weddings wind up taking place in full-view of anyone who wants to watch.

Opting for a villa means you can have your dream wedding on your own private beach with only your guests in attendance.  What’s more, it offers an incredible amount of flexibility. If clouds begin to gather on the big day, you can just call the caterer, the florist, and your guests and simply move the ceremony to the next day.  If any of the thousand tiny details hit a snag, you have the time to work it out, so your big day will be everything you wanted it to be.

Another popular option is to have the ceremony and reception at The Kaibo Marina in Cayman Kai with the wedding party and guests staying at condos and villas within walking distance.  For the guests who may want to stay on Seven Mile Beach, the Kaibo manager has connections with water taxis and boat charters to collect your guests and return them safely afterwards with no one behind the wheel after a reception.

Wedding Photography

Hiring a professional photographer to commemorate your special day is always recommended.  Once you’ve booked your accommodations, your photographer is an important next step.  The tough part isn’t deciding on your photographer, it is getting on their schedule so make that reservation quickly!

We recommend David Wolfe Photography. He does much of the professional print work on the island and does many of our upper-end villa layouts.  David and his team have impressed every single couple we have referred to him!

In addition to David, Rebecca Davidson and Courtney Platt do excellent work.

With the standard Saturday-to-Saturday booking, we recommend holding your wedding early in the week.  All the stores and local businesses will be open and, in the event of delays, you will have a couple of days to allow all your guests to arrive safely on-island.  The weekends are extremely hectic for caterers and restaurants, whereas service on a weekday will be exceptionally better.

If the wedding is on a Tuesday evening, still have Thursday and Friday to relax and enjoy the island–save Wednesday as a recovery day!

Wedding Planners, Caterers, & More

While some of us revel in the do-it-yourself approach—think handmade invitations, mason jar centerpieces, and custom bridal bouquets—others would rather have it all taken care of especially in a foreign country.  It’s just easier to put yourself in the hands of local professionals with industry contacts all around the island.

With that in mind, we highly recommend Celebrations Ltd, in George Town.  JoAnne and her staff work wonders with any theme she’s given, from lighting to props to the wedding cake.  A quick visit to her website will prove that she consistently produces amazing results.

In addition, we also recommend Octopus Events, a smaller wedding coordinator but equally reliable and talented.  Meg and her team can help you create the perfect ceremony.

For a truly spectacular wedding caterer, we highly recommend Mise En Place located in George Town.  A brief exploration of their menus will leave your mouth watering.  With a variety of menus available you can go all out or opt to keep it simple.  There’s even a menu designed specifically around local cuisine!

If you choose to host your reception in a private villa, you can have the event entirely catered by local restaurants.  Our two favorites are Tukka and The Lighthouse.  Tukka, led by Chef Ron, specializes in a fusion of Australian cuisine with a Caribbean twist.  The Lighthouse, managed by Giuseppe Gatta, specializes in traditional Italian dishes and fresh seafood.

Both Tukka and The Lighthouse have waterfront space to host your reception, or rehearsal dinner.
