Why get married in St Lucia?

Lying between Martinique and St Vincent in the Windward Islands chain of the Caribbean, St. Lucia offers many faces for a visitor to be inspired and fulfilled by. It’s a great venue for an idyllic wedding followed by an eventful honeymoon, with lively nights and areas of great natural beauty.

Most famous and breathtaking sight has to be the Pitons in the southwest: twin peaks rising from the water. From Soufriere in the southwest you can drive to the entrance of La Soufriere volcano with its bubbling sulphur hot springs, rich in minerals. Marigot Bay is a pretty, picturesque harbour where Dr Doolittle was filmed. Castries, the capital is about 20 minutes drive from the main beach areas on the Northwest coast where the beaches are relaxed, the harbour busy and the nightlife active.

What kind of wedding ceremony can I have in St Lucia?

In St Lucia, no two weddings need be alike. Simply discover you own perfect spot, rent a boat or a dream villa. Then tie the knot, St. Lucia style ‐‐ on that deserted beach, yacht, in the botanical gardens or simply in a church almost anywhere. You can even pledge your troth underwater.
