Also, what was your general budget and did you stick to it? Thanks!
Actually we have a lot of places on island that you can get married that are not in front of Big Hotels etc. Grace Bay beach down near Leeward is a quiet spot near a residential area so no hotels. Also Sapadilla and Taylor Bay are quiet for the most part but there are villas around . People that get married there are usually renting one of the homes and then get married on the beach in front of it. Long Bay Beach is not far from Grace Bay. You can also charter a boat and get married on one of the uninhabited cays nearby.The Leeward part of Grace Bay is about a 1-2 mile drive from the main hotels. You can arrange for the officiant/bouquet etc, we have 3-4 different officiants on island, all within the same price ranges and a couple of florists for flowers if you aren't bringing your own.
This is a recent private ceremony Kellie did a few weeks ago in Leeward (there's one photo with the set up to see what it looks like)
a recent sunrise wedding on Long Bay
A larger wedding that happened on Water Cay/Half moon Bay
And a smaller Boat/Cay wedding
Here's a villa wedding at Sapadilla Bay
There are a lot of examples on our blog, our internet is slow tonight so I can't pull a lot up but if you search "leeward" "long bay" "taylor bay" "sapadilla bay" and "water cay" you'll find more samples of weddings on our quieter beaches. However remember, Even Grace Bay beach is fairly quiet compared to most beaches in the world!
Hope that help you visualize options. Happy Planning!
