Weekly Wedding Blog – We did it Our Way!!

Greetings again from the Reef Resort where we have just spent the last week sprucing and beautifying our already idyllic setting during our annual maintenance week. The entire staff of The Reef have pulled together again to ensure that The Reef is in tip top condition for our wonderful guests to enjoy and relax in our little unique piece of paradise!

Feeling all fresh and new after our annual “spruce up”, I’ve resolved to write up a wedding blog each and every Tuesday for you…. some blogs will show weddings we’ve done in the past, others will feature some of the insider “tips and tricks” we’ve picked up over the years of helping our guests..anyway, watch out for the “Weekly Wedding Blog”, and here goes with the first one !

Our favourite Wedding thought here at The Reef is :

Your Wedding, Your Way!

Whether your idea of the perfect wedding is :

a) 100 of your favourite friends and family spending the week together, relaxing in the sun and spending quality time together with your lavish wedding and reception party being the ‘grand finale’ to the vacation of a lifetime, or

b) Just the two of you spending an intimate week in the tranquil seclusion and romance of our East End location with a simple beach wedding for two surrounded by the picturesque turquoise Caribbean ocean and a private candlelit dinner for two on the beach afterwards

Either way, we can take care of it all for you to create the most personal and unique wedding experience.

Some of the best wedding memories we have here at The Reef are of the fun and spontaneous couples whom, after arriving here at The Reef and being inspired by our beautiful beach and setting, took the plunge.

One couple- Dena and Smitty – literally did just that and jumped off our dock right after their ‘I Do’s’ to the surprise of a passing snorkeler!

That was great fun and I’m sure will make for a great conversation piece for years to come. Actually, we will be welcoming them both back to The Reef this week as they are celebrating their First Anniversary back here with us – congratulations Dena and Smitty!!

Here in Grand Cayman, we are very lucky to be able to process a Wedding license and required documentation within 24 working hours and therefore, the preplanning required in most other locations is not an issue. If you both have a passport (which is required for all visitors from abroad now), your disembarkation card from your flight to Cayman and any divorce decrees if necessary, we can arrange your wedding within 24 hours of arrival! However, due to our ‘one wedding a day!’ guarantee, we would strongly suggest checking the availability of your chosen date with us prior to arrival here at The Reef.

Please see our Weddings section on our website for further information on weddings here at The Reef or email us at, we will be happy to help you create ‘Your wedding, Your way’!

    These Wedding posts are great ! We’re owners & got married there at The Reef on 11/2/05 – just the 2 of us, with Sandra and Brie (former Concierge) as our witnesses. It was a wonderful day & the staff was fantasic. Sandra was a great help & arranged for the minister, etc. We’ll be back for our week in early December, shortly after our 2nd anniversary. What a wonderful place for a wedding.
