Saint Lu­cia Car­ni­val

Tropical Traveller Magazine - - CONTENTS -

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! Find your style and hire a pho­tog­ra­pher whose work re­flects your tastes – good ad­vice di­rect from a pro­fes­sional! And fi­nally . . . a Wed­ding Plan­ner! Make your life eas­ier by en­gag­ing the ser­vices of an ex­pert – not only in wed­dings, but in Saint Lu­cian wed­dings. The best wed­ding plan­ners know the yum­mi­est bak­ers, most cre­ative florists and hid­den jewel lo­ca­tions; they will want to know your vi­sion and a lit­tle of your per­son­al­ity so they can as­sist and rec­om­mend. When you’re plan­ning a wed­ding from thou­sands of miles away, the wed­ding plan­ner can be in­valu­able, a BBF or Bride’s Best Friend, so to speak. So take it from the ex­perts at World Travel Awards, Saint Lu­cia is an amaz­ing wed­ding and hon­ey­moon des­ti­na­tion, so if you’re con­sid­er­ing jump­ing the broom in the near or dis­tant fu­ture, why not join the le­gions of mar­ried cou­ples who have made their dreams come true in our is­land par­adise.
