Jamaica is one of the most romantic and vibrant islands in the Caribbean. Full of delights from across the spectrum, the island boasts a number of sights known for their beauty, high romance quotient and “wow” factors. Offering an eclectic mix of landscapes that infuses the right amount of uniqueness and creativity into any destination wedding, Jamaica is the quintessential go-to when tying the knot in a tropical setting.
Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios are both situated in Saint Ann Parish on Jamaica’s northern coast. Beyond the ever-popular tourist attraction, Dunn’s River Falls, the area boasts winding, white-sand beaches, hundreds of species of flora and fauna, and is considered one of the most naturally beautiful places on the island.
Always a popular choice, Montego Bay, is the capital of the parish of St. James and the fourth most populous city in Jamaica. From a photogenic point of view, MoBay (as it is affectionately known) is dotted liberally with colonial buildings - the perfect settings for post-ceremony snaps. It’s also backed by rolling, low mountains, which often produce dramatic-looking cloud formations in contrast with the sun-kissed beaches.
Negril’s beaches are regularly rated among some of the best in the world. With unobstructed views of the horizon, the dazzling sunsets offer the perfect light for the end (or start) of seaside nuptials. For gorgeous pictures, travel along Lighthouse Road for some shots near the lighthouse and the dramatic cliffs it protects.
