The private island of Jumby Bay is the perfect getaway for a destination wedding. 2 miles off the coast of Antigua, this 300 acre island, reachable only by boat, features two stunning beaches (the pristine white sand and crystal clear waters of Jumby Bay Beach, and the Pasture Bay where you can watch Hawksbill turtles nest), gourmet dining and beverage services, a spa, excursions on the private yacht, and best of all, 19 private Estate Homes that you can rent out for your whole wedding party to stay at together for the ultimate vacation.

Our favourite Estate Home is the Mariposa. The 15,000 sq. ft estate sleeps up to 18 people, and is situated on the eastern end of the island. It looks out to the stunning views of Buckley Bay, and is secluded over 10 acres of lush tropical seascape. The beautiful interior showcases spaces that allow nature to sneak in, especially in the outdoor bar and fire pit areas. The home includes both indoor and outdoor dining and living areas (with surround sound TVs, DVD players, media with docking stations, and high-speed internet access), a fully equipped kitchen, 9 bedrooms with air conditioning, and 9 bathrooms as well. You’ll also have a private chef to cook for you, housekeeper to keep the home in pristine condition, and your own personal butler to attend to your every need.

Along with being a beautiful home, the estate features a private infinity pool, turtle pond, tennis court, croquet lawn, basketball half-court, and nine-hole putting green, ensuring you will have a ton of opportunities for activities and entertainment during your stay. Bicycles and three golf carts are available for use, and a powerboat is even available from the estate’s private dock.

On the wedding day, there are several picturesque locations to host the ceremony, including the great lawns of the grand Estate House, the rugged Pasture Bay or sprawling Jumby Bay beach, or the private beaches and terraces on your own personal estate home. Personally tailored floral arrangements from the on-island nursery will be created for your bouquets, boutonnieres, and décor.

Your reception can have a casual beachside vibe with a barbeque and steel drums, or be an elegant dinner reception in the Grand Estate – whatever best fits your wedding vision! No matter where you eat, the food will be made with fresh ingredients by classically trained chefs who mix Caribbean flavours with formal dining to craft bespoke menus just for your wedding day. Even your wedding cake will be personalized by you and the pastry chef. And the party can go all night long, since Jumby Bay Island has a wide range of entertainment for wedding receptions.
