As well as the breathtaking surroundings, the plethora of cultural and adventurous activities on offer, you can also turn to Saint Lucia for an endless pick of the best wedding venues and honeymoon retreats.

Find your picture perfect wedding venue in Saint Lucia
Think of a Caribbean wedding, and an idyllic beach scene may spring to mind. But if you choose Saint Lucia for your big day, that’s just one of the many backdrops that could end up in your wedding photographs. Surrounded by stunning natural beauty, couples can recreate the photo album of their dreams in renowned romantic locations such as in front of the iconic Piton Mountains, within historic plantation houses, on a catamaran cruise at sunset or outside a deserted lighthouse with the waves lapping against the shore.
Alternatively, your ceremony can take place before a rushing waterfall such as the beautiful Toraille Falls, or in a lush tropical garden that’s reserved exclusively for the two of you, the registrar and your guests. You’ll never forget the experience of walking through the scattered petals of exotic flowers to exchange rings in your own secret grove.
You could also opt for the historic battlements of Pigeon Island National Park – how you make the leap into wedded bliss is limited only by your imagination. In addition to paradise-like photos backdrops, there is a great choice of accommodation and activities and coupled with the ease of getting hitched on-island due to there being no residency period, it’s no surprise that Saint Lucia is a popular destination for both weddings and honeymoons.

Experiences Perfect for Two
With the perfect ingredients for R&R and first class customer service, Saint Lucia is the ideal place to catch some rays and recharge batteries but equally, couples looking for a bit more stimulation can zipline the rainforest, enlist an expert walking guide and hike together to the 2,600ft summit of the Gros Piton Mountain, take a helicopter tour and see the whole island, learn how to make their own chocolate from ‘bean to bar’, detox in a mud bath at the Sulphur Springs, the Caribbean’s only drive-in volcano or get creative with a Creole cooking class.
