About

About

Hummingbird Hall Jamaica has been hosting beautiful Jamaican destination weddings since 2009.

Our Wedding Philosophy: One of a Kind, Community Enriching

Jamaica school children

Hummingbird Hall is a pioneer in the concept of Jamaican Destination Weddings for Good.

We are well aware that our success is due to – and dependent on – the wider community, and so take price in ensuring that our destination weddings and events benefit the locale, Jamaica and mother earth.

Without compromising the luxurious island weddings for which we are known, we are keen to contribute to the upliftment of our beautiful island of Jamaica.

To this end, we:

  • Endeavor to grow local businesses through our partnership with Jamaican, rather than international, suppliers of excellence. Our suppliers include a wonderful assortment of ‘Mom & Pop’ businesses, rural farmers, recent graduates and local entrepreneurs.
  • Invest in and develop staff, through our relationship with the HEART Trust NTA.
  • Support local schools, children’s homes and youth projects through the donation of our venue and volunteering.
  • Employ practices that enhance our environment, such as recycling, composting and energy conservation.
  • Replace environmentally destructive practices such as the throwing of rice (a choking hazard for birds) and sky lanterns (injurious for livestock and marine life); with seed throwing and tree planting.

Through our luxurious Jamaican weddings, we are committed to the notion that tourism can be as beneficial for the host country as the visitor; please contact us to learn more.
