Event Planners

For smaller parties (under 25 persons), an event planner is not typically necessary; our Events & Weddings Team will be happy to liaise with you on recommended vendors and coordination of event details, including selection of canapés prepared by the St. Nicholas Abbey kitchen and suitable décor.

Once the requirements of your event extend beyond our existing facilities, we request that an event planner manage the necessary logistics.

For these larger parties, St. Nicholas Abbey works closely with a select group of experienced Event Planners located here in Barbados, and we recommend them with every confidence that they will make your event an unforgettable experience.  Our Events & Weddings Team will be happy to coordinate with your event planner to ensure the event runs smoothly.

We are happy to allow other planners to be utilised, however due to the nature of our historical setting, St. Nicholas Abbey reserves the right of final approval over all arrangements.
