I watched the woman I love gallop away.

Destination weddings are popular at the Victorian style Luxury Bahia Principe Runaway Bay.

The resort is located on a stunning beach on the world famous island of Jamaica.

Jamaica has been trumpeted in movies, songs and books. Brides who desire a dream wedding come to the place that people dream about.

There are several different wedding packages available to the Bride and Groom. Here are some typical features.   First and foremost, you’ll enjoy the services of an on-site Wedding Coordinator, so you can relax knowing your big day is in good hands.

You can expect late check-out, room upgrades, VIP amenities in your suite and special bargains at the Spa. There will be professional decorations at your wedding site, a wedding cake, a luxury toast with Moet Chandon champagne and music on CD. (or you can bring your own CD)

You can have a live band, professional photographer and a sit-down dinner at your reception afterwards. Some packages include a 2-hour open bar at the reception.

Plus, there is a special welcome surprise and breakfast in bed the next morning at Luxury Bahia Principe Runaway Bay .

A few legal requirements.

You will need proof of citizenship. Bring a certified copy of the birth certificate for bride and groom that has their father’s name on it. Parental consent form if either one is under 18 years old.  If you’ve been married already (and divorced), you’ll also need to provide proof of the divorce, and it must be the original certificate,  not a photocopy.

Are you a widow or widower who is marrying again? You must supply a certified copy of a death certificate for your former spouse. The good news is that no blood test is required.

Are you bringing your own Minister?  Only a licensed marriage official in Jamaica can legally marry you. Your Minister can perform the ceremony but the local official must be present to sign the appropriate documents and make the marriage pronouncement.

You must have 2 witnesses. Bring your own or use witnesses provided by the resort or the local official.

It’s best to start coordinating your special day several months in advance with a resort planner. This will assure that all the proper documents are on hand and avoid any problems at Luxury Bahia Principe Runaway Bay.

No worries about watching the woman you love gallop away on horseback.

Horseback riding in the Caribbean surf is just one of the many ways to celebrate your wedding.
