Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) is set to wow brides-to-be at this month’s Bluewater Bridal Fair.

Jamaica is one of the world’s favourite and most unique wedding and honeymoon destination. From 17 – 19 October 2014, the JTB in partnership with Jewel Resorts will be at Bluewater Shopping Centre, Kent, for one of the UK’s largest wedding fairs. Jamaica has the reputation for being a great place to ‘tie the knot’, and JTB officers will be available at the Fair to discuss wedding options with prospective brides and grooms on getting married in the Caribbean’s most appealing wedding destination. The team will also offer exclusive wedding packages to attendees. There will also be information on must-do honeymoon experiences, from climbing Dunn’s River Falls to cycling through the breathtaking Blue Mountains as well as options on romantic resorts or locations where children can come along and be part of the big day.

Couples can marry just 24 hours after arriving on the island, with hotels like Jewel Resorts providing their guests with all-inclusive wedding packages for a stress-free occasion. At Bluewater, Jewel Resorts will share information about their celebrated wedding packages, available at each of their three Jamaican resorts. Whether it’s an intimate ceremony or a larger celebration, brides at Jewel Resorts can pick from wedding packages ranging from ‘Precious Gem’ to ‘Diamond’ which allows them to combine their dream-honeymoon with their nuptials. In addition to the beautiful ambience and luxurious accommodation, Jewel Resorts also offer complimentary Honeymoon Registry, and allow friends and family of the wedding party to treat newly-weds to special wedding gifts, such as upgrading to a honeymoon suite or a couple’s massage.

Young up-and-coming Jamaican fashion designers Christopher Childs and Natalie Christine also featured during Kristensen’s show. The event raised funds for the Jamaican Arts Council.

Organiser of the fashion event Theresa Roberts, Europe’s largest collector of Jamaican Art says: “The event evoked memories of the 50s and 60s when Jamaica was the glamour destination of choice for the European jet set and Hollywood A list.

“The natural splendour of the island and infectious excitement of its people combined with the highest quality events such as this surely mean that the sophisticated elite will quickly rediscover the pleasures that “The Rock” has to offer”.

Jamaica is fast becoming a powerhouse in arts & culture. In New York, Jamaican artists sell for big money, which is now taking off in Europe following a recent House of Lords exhibition organised by Theresa Roberts.

Jamaica is no longer just about Bob Marley, Jamaica’s Winter Olympic Bobsleigh team from ‘Cool Runnings’ and Usain Bolt.

Proceedings to this event went to supporting students at The Edna Manley Art College. They are all making the world take Jamaican arts and culture seriously.
