Celebrity Beach Weddings: A 2022 Trend

Destination Weddings have been deemed a top trend for 2022 by Southern Living, but really, celebrities have been taking advantage of the magic that destination weddings bring for years with celebrity beach weddings. Destination weddings may seem daunting, expensive, and extra work – but now more than ever, having your special day on a romantic island is possible for anyone!

Here are some celebrity beach weddings that have happened in special destinations locations that YOU can have yours at too!

Celebrity Beach Weddings: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

Ben and Jennifer had their special day in Caribbean paradise at Parrot Cay Resort in Turks and Caicos!


Having your beach wedding at a private resort on a beautiful island allows the experience to be intimate and special to you and your guests. Sandals also has a resort in Turks and Caicos that is a beautiful spot for romance!

Grace Bay, Turks & Caicos has colorful reefs, white sands, and shimmering waters. This makes Grace Bay one of the most popular beaches on the island. Yet this area maintains its reputation of being a secluded and exclusive Caribbean destination.

Celebrity Beach Weddings: Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber

Cindy Crawford arguably started the destination wedding trend in 1998 when they had their stunning day in the Bahamas.

It was the definition of a relaxed island wedding, barefoot and everything! That’s another benefit of a destination wedding – it can be as laid back as you want it to be. An excuse to forgo the heels! Crawford even wore a John Galliano mini lace shift dress (which was bought off-the-rack!), carried a casual bouquet of white flowers, and rocked effortless beach waves. Their celebrity beach wedding was a complete secret from the public. This gave them the intimacy, privacy, and casualty that destination weddings allow!

Sandals Emerald Bay Resort in Exuma is secluded and the beaches have perfect white sand and calm crystal waters. With the added bonus of close proximity to the USA but beautiful island privacy.

Celebrity Beach Weddings: Matt Damon and Luciana Barrosa

Perhaps our biggest bragging right, is Matt Damon and Luciana Barrosa’s stunning vow renewal ceremony on the gorgeous island of Saint Lucia. The celebration took place at our very own Sandals Caribbean Resort!

The couple rented out the entire resort for the weekend for about 50 guests, and exchanged vows under thatched roofs right at sunset! Imagine getting married at the same place this lovely couple celebrated 8 years together??

Destination Weddings bring an extra sense of magic to your special day. Not only are they beautiful and unique experiences, but they also have a sense of privacy. There’s a sense of “island relaxation” that celebrity couples have been taking advantage of for years! Celebrity beach weddings are extra special, yours can be too!
