The perfect Bahamas Elopement! Glenn's service was amazing from start to finish. We decided about one week before we went on our vacation that we wanted to elope in the Bahamas. Glenn had no problem with our last-minute decision, and made it happen. We chose the 'Island Nuptial Romance Bahamas Wedding Package', which was perfect. Glenn handles everything from the paperwork and transportation to obtaining the marriage license to officiating the wedding. The photographer that the package includes is excellent as well. If you are thinking about eloping in paradise, Bahamas Elopement Packages is the best way to do it. Thank you Glenn and team for creating an amazing experience/memory my wife and I will never forget.

We were so fortunate to have Glenn planning and officiating our wedding - he and his team looked after every aspect of our big day, and responded to all of our queries and concerns promptly. He took any stress out of the planning, and took care of organising everything from the marriage license application to delivering copies of our marriage certificate. His photographer and drivers were excellent and so professional, we feel so lucky to have made the right choice for our wedding - the perfect Bahamas elopement. Thank you Glenn!

Kevin Murtagh


I cannot say enough about how satisfied my wife and I are with Bahamas Elopement Packages! Glenn Ferguson was wonderful throughout the entire process! He helped us easily navigate the bureaucracy of obtaining a marriage license even bringing us to the office in his car. Tonny, Glenn's assistant picked us up for the ceremony in a beautiful car and whisked us to Nuptial Beach. Glenn orchestrated a beautiful ceremony for just the two of us. Everything from the flowers to the photography was carefully thought out and well executed. The caring and warmth that Glenn puts into his ceremony went far beyond what we expected. He's cheerful, and pleasant, and his wonderful sense of humor all comes through. This is a man who loves his work and it shows!
