At The Reefs Resort Bermuda
The Reefs Resort in Bermuda has been offering wedding packages for over 15 years. It's a small intimate hotel perched on limestone cliffs and overlooking one of Bermuda’s most beautiful private pink sandy beaches. With its charming architecture and intimate style, The Reefs is a great place for a romantic wedding. The wedding plan with the Reefs should begin at least 6-9 months in advance. The hotel hosts only one wedding a day.
You should first begin your plans by contacting their wedding coordinator by phone (441/599 0344) or email ([email protected]
). Once they are able to book a wedding official in the island, they can finally confirm the date and time of the wedding. At this time, The Reefs takes a non-refundable deposit of $500. During the wedding time, the couple needs to stay at the hotel.
The hotel offers wedding packages generally for up to 12 guests. However, they can customize the package for larger parties. The package usually includes the necessary paperwork to marry in Bermuda, the ceremony with a wedding official, a bottle of champagne, the Bride’s bouquet, Groom’s boutonniere, and an hour with a professional photographer.
The fee to have a wedding at the hotel is $600 for a one hour ceremony and reception, and an additional $250 for each additional hour.
