With its stunning beaches, tropical scenery and romantic ambience, St Lucia truly epitomises the perfect Caribbean wedding and honeymoon destination. Jet-setting off for a wedding abroad is becoming ever more popular, and St Lucia is certainly one of the most beautiful destinations – especially the remarkable Rendezvous. A couple’s only all-inclusive hotel, Rendezvous provides an idyllic and relaxed setting for the wedding of your dreams, its two mile stretch of Caribbean beach providing an incredible place to tie the knot.
The growing popularity of a destination wedding isn’t just for the gorgeous backdrops – travelling elsewhere can be cheaper than hosting a reception in the UK, and less stressful too. We’ll do the planning for you, liaising with Rendezvous’ very own wedding planner Sandra Baptiste to create a wedding day you’ll remember for the rest of your lives, and you won’t even have to lift a finger. Sandra has worked as Rendezvous’ wedding planner for many years and is truly passionate about her job, “It always gives me the greatest joy to be part of such a special celebration, sharing with the couple the excitement of planning their dream wedding, and to capture such beauty of true love when the couples say I do”, she says.
The day can be as intimate and private as you like too – spend your wedding with a few close family and friends, or simply enjoy the day just you two. With such a striking, romantic destination, you could even enjoy your honeymoon here, cutting down the costs and making your travels even more memorable and special.
Rendezvous is a spectacular choice for a wedding, its powdery white sand beach, chic decor and secluded ambience offering a sophisticated spot for saying your vows. If you dream of a relaxing, barefoot wedding on the beach, Rendezvous’ beautiful gazebo nestled on two miles of pristine sand exudes romance, the azure blue sea offering a picturesque backdrop. The hotel’s vibrant gardens are also a wonderful spot for saying “I do”, the abundance of exotic flora creating a colourful, naturally beautiful venue reminiscent of an early summer garden party.
Along with the cherished wedding ceremony you’ll receive premium branded drinks, wine served by the bottle, and nightly tasting sessions of sumptuous champagnes and sparkling wines. Water sports are also complimentary, and you could even swim with tropical marine life together with the free diving programme – just imagine your first day as a married couple, plunging into the topaz waters in search for turtles and vividly coloured fish.
Rendezvous’ charming rooms and fantastic pool have also just had a make-over, giving newlyweds the finest of hideaways for their trip of a lifetime. Fancy celebrating your marriage with an intimate dinner? The two a la carte restaurants offer sensational settings for dreamy candlelit dinners for two, including the newly launched Malabar Beach Club nestled on the water’s edge, with rustic furniture made from driftwood and a deliciously fresh and local menu.The Trysting Place is a fancier affair, serving only the finest a la carte cuisine and wines to loved-up newlyweds, and offering a luxurious ambience as you toast to a new life together. The Terrace is also a great spot to grab a bite to eat during the rest of your romantic getaway, serving international buffets in a gorgeous ocean-side setting.
If St Lucia’s jaw-dropping scenery and Rendezvous’ unbelievable wedding ceremonies aren’t incentive enough, book now and you’ll receive $700 credit to use towards a premium Ever After wedding with Tropical Sky, plus a free room upgrade and sparkling wine reception. Your wedding day will be one of the best days of your lives, and what could be better than saying “I do” on a sun-kissed Caribbean beach?
