Guinea Plantation is located in St. John Barbados. With its expansive grounds, it is of no great surprise that it was one of the first sugar plantations located on the island of Barbados. It derived its name from the Africans from the Guinea Coast that once populated the property. Additionally, the location holds some cultural and historical significance as the first seedlings of the mango brought to Barbados in 1742 were planted on the property. This spacious property was first owned by Humphrey Walrond, but now has been beautifully restored by the new owners, the Forde Family.
Guinea Plantation may be off the beaten path but it is an up and coming hot spot for Weddings & Events. Located in scenic St. John, it was one of the first sugar plantations built on the island and references to Guinea Plantation date as far back as 1654. Today they cater to weddings, events and tours.
Events wise, Guinea Plantation is an excellent location for weddings. As mentioned previously, the grounds are quite expansive, providing the happy couple with excellent photo opps, so that they will not have to leave the property to take exquisite wedding photos. The house has a bridal suite with a dressing room inside the main house. Therefore, if you choose to get married at the plantation, you will have the ideal all-inclusive experience, where you can stay the night, get dressed, get married, have the reception and also, take wedding photos.
