There is no "dedicated" wedding chapel at our Saint Lucia resorts ANSE CHASTANET and JADE MOUNTAIN. Instead, we encourage the bride and groom to choose their own "very special location". While some couples prefer to decide on the exact location prior to arrival, you can also wait with your final decision until you have actually arrived and had a look around. ANSE CHASTANET and JADE MOUNTAIN are nestled amidst their own 600 acre tropical Caribbean estate with 2 beaches and there certainly are plenty locations to choose from. Let us familiarize you with some of the most popular choices.
Anse Chastanet Beach
The 1/4 mile Anse Chastanet beach, with its gently rolling waves in the background, has several good spots to offer for a ceremony both for couples travelling alone or with a group of friends and relatives. Tents can be erected for the ceremony if desired.
The Treehouse at Anse Chastanet
The Treehouse is located at mid - level hillside. As the name suggests, it is an open style structure, clinging on the steep cliffs, surrounded by treetops and overlooking the north end of Anse Chastanet beach and the Caribbean Sea. Airy and cool, a good private location for bride and groom travelling alone or with a wedding party up to 20 guests.
Anse Mamin Plantation
Surrounded by lush tropical foliage, the historical ruins of ANSE MAMIN provide a unique and romantic backdrop for any wedding ceremony. Very popular is the wedding set up next to our Stairway to Heaven. Wedding couple and participating friends would all arrive by boat. Location surcharges may apply.
Anse Mamin Beach
The remote Anse Mamin beach is accessible by the resort water taxi or the resort shuttle. Guests favor arrival by boat. Once guests, registrar and groom have arrived and are ready to proceed, the bride will arrive by water taxi making a grand entrance to begin the ceremony. Suitable location for couples with or without small or large groups.
Premium & Hillside Deluxe Rooms
These rooms are very spacious and have beautiful views of the ocean and /or the Pitons. By virtue of their design, couples staying in these accommodation categories sometime choose their room as their wedding location, especially if they wish to have a very private, quiet ceremony.
Kai Mer Cottage
Perched high above the coral reefs on the south end of Anse Chastanet beach, Kai Mer is an intimate, very private choice for a panoramic ocean view location. There are a number of stairs to climb to this lcoation.
Weddings Off and Under
For the truly adventurous certified divers, the Resort can arrange a wedding ceremony under water. It must be noted that the FORMAL part of the ceremony will take place above water, on the water's edge, prior to the couple diving off to repeat their vows under water, using both slates and underwater sign language. The sequence can also be done in the reverse if you prefer to say the formal above water vows dripping wet...
Weddings Off Shore
Anse Chastanet has a number of boats which can be rented and used for the wedding ceremony, with the Resort and Piton mountains becoming the scenic backdrop. Most of our boats are suitable for smaller wedding groups, however, our 65 foot power catamaran, Lucky T, is a perfect venue for larger groups.
Jade Mountain Locations
In addition to the ANSE CHASTANET wedding locations, guests staying at JADE MOUNTAIN can get married on the Celestial Terrace at Jade Mountain or in their infinity pool sanctuary. The Celestial Terrace has been the location of ABC's The Bachelor Final Red Rose proposal. The dramatic scenery makes it a very popular choice for brides and grooms. There are limits to group sizes at Jade Mountain, especially for wedding dinners. Small children are not allowed access at any time due to the cliff side setting.
Weddings Away From Resort - Emerald Estate
The resort owned farm Emerald in the Soufriere Hills is a popular choice for the "organic" bride and groom. Combine your wedding celebration with our Farm to Table Chef Special Lunch and you'll end up harvesting your lunch ingredients personally after the wedding.
Weddings Away From Resort - Botanical Gardens at Diamond Mineral Baths
The island's nicest botanical garden is part of the historical Diamond Mineral Baths which long ago were already enjoyed by the troops of the French King Louis VXI. In the heart of the formal gardens, a wedding gazebo has been erected which is available for wedding ceremonies in the late afternoon.
