Looking for that perfect spot to say your “I do’s” with your closest family and friends in Nassau? Don't sweat the small stuff! Smaller, more intimate weddings are more popular and sought after than ever and The Bahamas does not fall short of amazing venues to help you seal the deal.
A Stone’s Throw Away
Tucked away on the western side of the island, A Stone's Throw Away is literally just that: only a stone’s throw away from some of the most beautiful beaches in Nassau. This location is not just the perfect combination of being conveniently located and a perfect hideaway, it is also perfectly situated on a high elevation on the coast, boasting some “to die for” views of the Bahamian waters. Sounds perfect, right? With accommodations for 20 guests, its intimate setting is the perfect place to gather your closest family and friends for your nuptials. The property was built to celebrate a traditional Bahamian home and with some of the most romantic spots to hide away and let your wedding photographer work a little magic, this boutique hotel will add so much character to your already special day.

This mansion that was turned into a hotel in 2014, has a royal feel and can easily be transformed into a glitz and glamour setup for the perfect fancy wedding.

With access to the beach just a few minutes away, you can even mix and match your ceremony and reception and have the best of both worlds.
