Nigerian Wedding in Jamaica

“Where there is love, there is no darkness”. There certainly wasn’t any today for our beautiful bride and her handsome groom.

The Nigerian destination wedding in Jamaica was a site to behold. Our lovely Nigerian couple decided to make it Jamaica for their wedding ceremony and reception. The wedding was filled with persons who traveled from near and far and had alot of Nigerian influences and customs and traditions. Women at the wedding were dressed in traditional Nigerian wedding attire and they looked fantastic.

Getting married in Jamaica is never an easy feet but we are always happy when persons decide to choose Jamaica for their destination wedding. The pictures of Simi and Tayo’s wedding attest to the fact that they made the right choice.

Please see pics below.

Jamaican Beach Wedding

At Helen G Events we have decided to start featuring some of the weddings we plan or decorate in Jamaica. We are featuring the Jamaica beach wedding of Brian and Jessica. Brian and Jessica stayed at Iberostar Suites and got married at a local beach in Montego Bay.

We planned everything for them from start to finish. We booked their accommodations at Iberostar as we get local rates and we arranged their ground transportation to and from the airport as well for their honeymoon and to and from the wedding for them and their guests as well as plan their entire wedding.

Please see below their review of our services:

My husband, Brian and I cannot say enough about Helen G Events!! To sum up our experience with our destination wedding, I have to honestly say our special day was absolutely everything we wanted, all thanks to Helen G Events and her amazing staff. We came across Helen’s information on Wedding Wire and from the moment we contacted her, she proved to be knowledgeable, creative and really interested in making our day unforgettable. Most of our communication was done via email, which may make some brides uneasy, as I was initially. Helen’s confidence in her abilities immediately put our minds at ease. Every detail we wanted was executed perfectly. I still have trouble believing my wedding was as beautiful and breathtaking as it was. Our family who travelled with us described our wedding day as a fairy tale. Helen’s off-resort beach location, ceremony area, cocktail lounge and beautiful reception were more than my husband and I could have ever dreamed of. Everyone we encountered on our trip was fantastic, but Helen G Events’ staff and of course Helen went above and beyond for us. Helen set up our stay at Iberostar resorts, got our flowers & centerpieces, put together welcome baskets for our guests, put together a kids basket for our son, surprised Brian and I with our own welcome basket, collected all of the documents needed for the wedding to get our marriage certificate ready, obtained a wonderful officiant for the ceremony, booked all vendors and handled all contracts- she did everything!! She even contacted us to make sure our family got home safe after they left.
My husband had to put on his tux, me my dress, we had to show up and have a good time- Helen literally did the rest!
If you are thinking of having a destination wedding- Go to Jamaica and work with Helen G Events!!! A million thanks to you Helen, we are truly grateful for everything you did!!

For the beach wedding Jessica wanted to give welcome baskets to her guests upon their arrival and she incorporate certain elements as pearls pillar candleholders yet still maintaining a beachy kind of feel.

On this beautiful beach we also created a lounge area for guests to sit and relax before and during the cocktail hour and reception. We incorprated white leather sofas with traditional beach furniture.

Below are pictures of their beach wedding in Jamaica as well as the welcome baskets we did for them:

We have come up with a list of wedding locations in Jamaica that we feel are the best for various reasons which we will try to state. Please note the list is not in order of importance:

Jamaican Beach Wedding at Laughing Waters

1. Laughing Waters – Ocho Rios – We love this location for a beach wedding in Jamaica. It has the trio that any bride would love beach, waterfalls and garden. You can hardly find if never these three settings in any one location in Jamaica. With this location you can bring in our own caterers and go as late as you want.

Jamaica Wedding Location - Great House

2, Bellefield Great House – Montego Bay – Looking for a great house wedding in Jamaica with a spectacular garden setting. Then this is it. The food is to die for.

3. Strawberry Hills – Kingston – OK the drive to get to  this location will take you about 45 minutes from Half Way Tree or New Kingston in Jamaica but its worth the drive. For me the view and the peace and serenity is well worth the drive. This is one of the best wedding locations in Jamaica and Kingston. Fantastic Mountain views. Food excellent. Accommodations 5 star. Need I say more!!! Strawberry Hills is excellent for a garden wedding in Jamaica.

View from Firefly  St. Mary

4. Firefly – St. Mary – The views, the views the views. If you are looking for a wedding with a view in Jamaica, then this is it. It’s about 45 minutes from Ocho Rios and the drive can be scary for some but its worth it. Think about using a location for your wedding in Jamaica where a James Bond movie was filmed. Getting excited???
