Saint Lucia Carnival
Since 1998, our island has received the World Travel Award for Leading Honeymoon Destination a massive 16 times, so what’s our secret? Well, for a start, just look around you! Saint Lucia is stunningly beautiful, with a diversity of landscape which provides a myriad of wonderful wedding backdrops. If a beach wedding is your dream, we have miles of white sand (and black!) to choose from, and world class resorts located from the tip of the north coast to the Atlanticswept shores of the south. If the lush green foliage is your perfect background, there are acres of tropical
rainforest on the island, perfectly acces sorised with vibrantly coloured blooms and feathery tree palms. If the traditions of a more gracious era are your idea of a perfect wedding location, there are authentic plantation and estate
houses which will give your nuptials a unique Caribbean atmosphere. If you’re a history buff, we have old forts
and ruins which date back to the 18th cen tury in some places, and provide an unusual and rustic backdrop for the ceremony. If a seafaring theme is for you, Saint Lucia has a wide choice of yachts, catamarans
and pirate ships where you can wed and party in grand old nautical style. Once you’ve chosen your location, you’ll want to add on the special details.
Flowers & Cakes
How about a tropical bouquet packed with bright red anthuriums and pink ginger lilies? Even if your dream bouquet includes flowers that don’t naturally grow in Saint Lucia, we have floral specialists who import especially for weddings. For dessert, try something tropical, like our local fruit cake steeped in rum, or a passionfruit filling in a traditional sponge.
Capturing the memories is key for every couple planning a destination wedding, and here on the island we have excellent photographers who are skilled at making sure that the big day will be immortalised for friends and family whether they are attending the wedding or at home, jealously waiting!
