A pristine Caribbean paradise, Canouan Island lies in the remote reaches of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines archipelago. As versatile as it is beautiful, this undiscovered isle is the ultimate tropical wedding destination.
Welcome to Canouan
Overlooking aquamarine waters and powdery white-sand beaches, the exclusive Mandarin Oriental, Canouan resort is the essence of Caribbean beauty and romance. There’s no more magical place to host your dream wedding.
Escape to one of the resort’s elegant oceanview or beachfront suites with separate dining room, private balconies or terraces and dedicated butler service.
Designed by a team of Italian architects, our luxurious two- and three-bedroom Patio Villas feature a full-service kitchen, private infinity pool, lush garden and sweeping ocean views.
Peaceful and picturesque, our full-service Spa offers holistic treatments and Asian-inspired therapies. Pre-wedding hair styling and make-up services can be arranged for your entire bridal party.
Your Wedding, Your Way
Whether you choose to be married in a classic church setting or barefoot on one of several secluded beaches, every detail will be seamlessly arranged and flawlessly executed by a Mandarin Oriental, Canouan wedding specialist.
Immediately following the ceremony, choose between an intimate beachfront celebration or a lavish evening of dinner and dancing alongside all of your family and friends.
Hidden among lush greenery, the resort’s 17-th-century Anglican Church was brought to the island stone-by-stone from England. This charming site is one of Canouan’s most classically romantic ceremony venues.
Just off the main resort lies the impossibly beautiful Godahl Beach. Sugar-soft sand, refreshing ocean breezes and well-manicured landscaping provide the picture-perfect backdrop for a toes-in-the-sand ceremony, reception and more.
L’Ance Guyac Beach Club fronts one of the most scenic Caribbean beaches on all of Canouan. Take your pick among a bonfire-lit welcome party, afternoon surf-and-turf barbecue, deejayed late-night dance party — or indulge in all three.
Designed with rich teak woods and natural, thatched palm leaves, the Spa and Yoga pavilions are two exceptionally unique venues for an intimate ceremony, rehearsal dinner or pre-wedding luncheon.
Set on a hilltop bluff, the Signature Hole at the 18-hole championship golf course — designed by links legend Jim Fazio — provides panoramic Atlantic and Caribbean views for a cocktail party or secluded ceremony.
Our customizable wedding packages cover all the essentials while also highlighting your own personal style.
