Getting Married in Tobago
Posted Sep 22, 2023
If you’re dreaming about secluded beaches, incredible weather and the chance to say “I do” in sunnier climes, then Tobago is the wedding destination for you.
One of the Caribbean’s best kept secrets, Tobago has been shaped and influenced historically by locals and visitors alike and has a charm that’s simply unbeatable. With volcanic landscapes on one side and beautiful white sand beaches on the other it’s the perfect location for weddings large and small.
Castara Retreats is one of the best known hotels in Tobago for an intimate wedding experience. You can truly experience the real Tobago here with the Caribbean Sea on one side and rainforests on the other, with a stunning beach just below.
Owned by UK couple Steve and Sue, their team has been praised for its attention to detail and getting everything exactly right for the big day. You’ll be in the very best hands and they’ll support you in planning the perfect itinerary.
Plantation Beach Villas
Plantation Beach Villas can be found in a gated estate overlooking the Caribbean Sea. In close proximity to the airport, these villas are perfect for small, bijoux weddings. There are six beautiful gingerbread trim villas surrounded by incredible gardens, a landscaped pool and a private bar for the wedding reception.
The villas are a stone’s throw from Stonehaven Bay, where turtles lay their eggs during nesting season. During your stay you’ll likely see and hear the most beautiful wild parakeets.
If all you’ve ever dreamed of is exchanging your vows on the beach with blue skies, gentle waves and golden sands then these iconic locations are sure to fit your brief.

Pigeon Point Heritage Park offers a selection of outdoor experiences across its 125 acres of land. Whether you choose a lawn or jetty wedding or prefer to get married directly on the beachfront, you can guarantee to be surrounded by coconut trees, romantic sunsets and tropical florals here.

Facts & Traditions
- There are four types of marriages recognised in Tobago: civil, Muslim, Hindu and Orisa (another style of Hindu wedding).
- It’s tradition for the guests to eat some light refreshments after the ceremony and before the big meal, as they wait for bride and groom. They’re usually contained in a colourful box with a baked chicken leg, a sandwich, a slice of black or sponge cake and a small pastry.
