With The Bahamas 16 weddings less than a month away, The Islands of The Bahamas are finalizing plans to ensure the weddings in paradise are as timeless and perfect as the 16 lucky Canadian couples imagined it to be.

Due to the impact of Hurricane Matthew the weddings, originally scheduled for Grand Bahama Island, will now take place on Nassau and Paradise Island. Couples will be updated as soon as possible so that the relocation will be a smooth transition.

The 16 Canadian couples will be a part of sixteen weddings held simultaneously, in various locations, on November 16. The weddings will take place on the beautiful islands of Abaco, Andros, Bimini, Cat Island, Eleuthera, Exuma, Harbour Island, Long Island, Nassau and Paradise Island.

The 16 lucky couples that will exchange vows on November 16th in The Bahamas are:

  1. Agnes Meldrum and Travis Matubis of Blackfalds, Alberta - Exuma
  2. Lauren Heximer & Nathan Medeiros of Hamilton, Ontario - Harbour Island

Sr. Manager of Romantic Travel, Weddings, and Honeymoons, Vinincia Strachan, said The Bahamas is keenly awaiting the chance to share its country with the world.

“There are a few places in the world as beautiful and romantic as The Islands of The Bahamas. With the celebration of our 16 weddings event, we hope to share the wonder of our country.

We look forward to welcoming the couples and their guests on November 13 for the welcome reception at Atlantis,” Strachan said.
