caribbean WeddingNearly fifteen years ago an impressive gray stone structure started to rise skyward on a rocky peninsula known as Peg Point, about four miles east of Portland's parish capitol, Port Antonio. As the incongruous building emerged it took on the shape and size of a medieval castle, which quickly became the subject of legends, rumors and tall tales. Its unique architecture also led to many flattering comments on it's artistic beauty.

Caribbean wedding dinningThe Castle's resilience against destructive forces has made it legend. It is the only structure on the coastline to be hit by a hurricane with forty-foot tidal waves, to be blown up in front of hundreds of witnesses and to be struck by lightning and still remain standing.

During construction of the Castle, the owner was approached by Twentieth Century Fox for permission to use the unfinished Castle for an action movie starring William "Cannon" Conrad and Eddie Albert. The gray concrete structure was leased to the movie company.

The huge crowds that gathered to watch the catastrophe were not disappointed. At about midnight, a massive blast (courtesy of Hollywood's pyrotechnicians) ignited the hallways and enveloped the Castle in a dramatic orange mushroom cloud that could be seen for miles around. In the meantime, word went around that the Castle had indeed been blown into oblivion. There was great surprise when the sun rose the next morning to reveal the building intact except for a few charred patches on the walls.

According to the owner, although the original plans called for a private three-bedroom house, the immensity of the Castle project presented the ideal opportunity to unleash his bubbling energy into an ultimate monument that would reflect some of Jamaica's heritage in a unique landmark for the Portland coastline.

The main hall reflects Jamaica's British heritage. It is fashioned on the concept of Britains Clandon Park that was designed by a Venetian architect in 1730. Wrought-iron torches light this main hall with its epic 47-foot ceiling and black-and -white checkerboard floor.

Urns and statues, a 14-foot 19th century Chippendale mirror with matching marble table and a huge mahogany dining table under a massive crystal chandelier complete the picture of regal grandeur.

The bedrooms are decorated with floor to ceiling curtains at the windows and the mahogany four-poster beds are draped with lavish lace canopies and spreads, each consisting of more than 120 yards of French lace.

Over the years, the Castle has played host to many functions, parties, balls and weddings. Candlelit concerts, featuring traditional chamber music, have taken place in the main hall and superb jazz concerts have contributed yet another musical dimension to the Castle's winter season.
