Weddings & Honeymoons
One-Of-A-Kind Weddings On Bald Head Island
Discerning brides have long recognized Bald Head Island as a unique destination for one-of-a-kind weddings. Because of its unique geographic position, Bald Head Island is one of the few places along the East Coast where the sun actually rises and sets over the Atlantic ocean – thus, each day begins and ends on a decidedly romantic note.
For brides, the island offers several beautiful sites for an unforgettable ceremony, including 14 miles of pristine Atlantic Ocean beaches, the oceanfront Shoals Club, Harbour Village tent pavilion, the Bald Head Island Club, and the non-denominational Bald Head Island Chapel, which holds up to 113 guests. The marshfront chapel, beautiful in its simplicity and absolutely stunning in its location, stands beside Old Baldy Lighthouse, among centuries-old twisted live oaks, and its understated, wooded interior is warm, welcoming and intimate.
Honeymoons on Bald Head Island are ideal for couples looking to get away from the hustle and bustle. Because there is no bridge connecting Bald Head Island to the mainland, and with no cars allowed on the island, it’s truly a place where couples can escape. Rental house rentals run the gamut in size and location, so there are plenty of cozy cottages for rent as well as grand homes, located on the beach, marsh, harbour or in the ancient maritime forest.
Couples in search of a laid-back honeymoon can spend time relaxing on the beach or strolling through the forest while couples looking for more adventure might opt for a kayak tour through the creeks or to take sailing lessons. A climb to the top of Old Baldy, North Carolina’s oldest lighthouse, provides spectacular views of the island as well as a romantic spot to pause and enjoy the splendor of Bald Head.
Bald Head Island Limited has a full-service Hospitality Sales and Meeting Planning division that can handle every wedding detail. They can help with use of the chapel, catering, group accommodations, tee-times, and provide dozens of other services to make your event special in every way.
