The Bahamian capital city is known for its vivid nightlife and patchwork of colonial and modern architecture. Today, stunning Victorian mansions, cathedrals and ancient forts offer numerous locations to marry at or visit while honeymooning. Like other Bahamian islands, Nassau is a natural destination for outdoor activities and watersports, whether you care to swim with dolphins, jet ski or just relax at the beach. There are also plenty of museums and cultural attractions to check out—like Queen’s Staircase, which was carved out of solid limestone in the late 18th century.
To marry in the Bahamas, couples must present valid passports, birth certificates, and a valid photo ID (such as a driver’s license). Divorce and death decrees are also required if applicable. Check with your Certified Destination Wedding Specialist for more details.
