Want a real barefoot wedding?.......look no further.
Tippy’s and Pineapple Fields has long time been a favorite spot for those looking to let their hair down, hang with friends and family, and say “I do” with sand like pink-powdered-sugar between their toes.
Frequently Asked Questions...
What about getting people to Eleuthera?
We suggest people travel to Nassau and then take one of the local commuter flights over to Governor’s Harbour which come three times daily. (see “The Best Ways to Get Here” section of the website.) We can also can give you the names of companies that charter planes from either Nassau or the States.
How do we get people around once they are here?
There are nice 30 seat air-conditioned tour buses for hire. Cars for rent are available from compacts all the way to eight-seat SUVs.
Where can we hold the ceremony?
You can do it right on the beach in front of Tippy’s or down in town at a 19th century Anglican Church that sits by the Caribbean Sea.
Can we have more than 60 people at the reception?
Unfortunately not; we need to make sure everyone has a dry seat in case it rains.
Where do I find help to put the wedding together?
Eleuthera is home to great florists, photographers, bakers, and people who will rent chairs and an arch, as well as a Justice of the Peace or Clergymen to perform the ceremony and get all the paperwork together. We’re happy to pass along their information so you can contact them directly. Another option for some is to get legally married at home and have their ceremony on Eleuthera.
Do I get a discount on the rooms at Pineapple Fields?
We give a 20% discount when the reception is held at Tippy’s.
During the week what kind of activities can we do as a group?
We can arrange excursions to private beaches for barbeques; site seeing; bonfires on the beach; or an afternoon poolside barbeque.
What is the deposit policy?
We require a 50% non-refundable deposit of $5,000 at the time of booking.
How far in advance should I book my wedding?
We recommend booking no more than one year in advance, as the deposit is non-refundable.
When is the final count for the reception party due?
We ask that a final head count for the number of guests attending be given no later than seven days prior to the event.
