It’s common for newlyweds to describe their wedding day as feeling like they’re walking on air. But for those who would rather walk on water, Sandals Grande St. Lucian just opened a stunning overwater wedding chapel.

The Overwater Serenity Wedding Chapel is Sandals’ first overwater chapel, located at their Grande St Lucian property, and the first overwater chapel in the Caribbean, according to the company.

The Serenity Chapel is an intimate, aquatic space for tying the knot. It’s located at the southwestern corner of the resort and its open-air design gives uninterrupted, panoramic views of Rodney Bay.

The chapel boasts a river stone altar and glass-panelled floor. The entire decor was designed with the seaside in mind. The space can hold up to 20 guests for either a religious or non-religious ceremony.

Use of the chapel is complimentary, but has to be reserved upon arrival on a first-choice basis. So those interested in booking the space should contact Sandals Grande St. Lucian with a “save the date.”

In the event that the Sandals chapel is completely booked, there are a few other places in the world where water-loving couples can exchange vows. The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa has an overwater wedding chapel with glass aisle. And the Four Seasons’ Landaa Giraavaru resort in the Maldives boasts a secluded overwater chapel, which can only be reached via rowboat.
