If you are planning a destination wedding, look no further than the beautiful venues of Bald Head Island. You don’t need to travel far to have an amazing wedding set in a tropical paradise. Bald Head Island is nestled in Eastern, North Carolina and is about a 25-minute ferry ride from historic Southport, NC.   


There are several reasons why Bald Head Island is a perfect choice for your destination wedding.  Let’s explore a few of them below:

You can choose from several types of wedding venues from around the island.  Whether you desire a traditional wedding in a chapel or a beach wedding, there are multiple options available on Bald Head Island.  For example, the Village Chapel of Bald Head Island offers a “19th century Carolina coastal style” that seats approximately 130 people complete with gorgeous wooden ceiling beams. The chapel is also next to Old Baldy, the oldest lighthouse in North Carolina which would be a beautiful backdrop for wedding photographs.



The Shoals Club, another popular wedding venue option, offers a deck that overlooks Cape Fear Point.  Your guests will see sand dunes, the Atlantic Ocean and a breathtaking arbor where your wedding ceremony will take place.  




The Bald Head Island Club will give a bride and groom the opportunity to have a combination view of a golf course and ocean.  Then, wedding guests can be at the reception in just a few steps.  The Bald Head Island Club offers a great chef that can prepare a feast that everyone will remember for years to come.

Carolina Bride featured a great article on the wedding of Kerrie Ward and Scott Queen from Chattanooga, TN.  This beautiful couple decided to have a destination wedding at Bald Head Island because it was the site of one of their very first dates.  They chose to have their reception under a tent by the Port that boasted scenic views from both the ocean and the intracoastal waterway.  One of the couple’s favorite things about their destination wedding was the purple, yellow and white sunflowers that covered the entry way to the reception.
