Destination Wedding Spotlight: St. Lucia

Bay Gardens Beach Resort Wedding on the Beach

Come to St. Lucia and it will not take you long to see why the island became known as the Helen of the West Indies – and why the French and British empires spent almost two centuries fighting to possess her. The island’s French legacy can still be heard in the local patois, seen int he many Gallic place-names and enjoyed in the irrestistible French Creole cuisine to be found in hotels, restaurants and bistros.

St. Lucia is large enough to provide visitors with breathtaking contrasts and small enough to ensure that those who want to laze their days away in peace and quiet can do just that. The climate on the island is tropical with temperatures ranging from 70 – 90 Fahrenheit. The rainy season is June – November, but don’t expect a constant downpour; rather, there are numerous short but incredibly intense showers. Trade winds provide breezes year-round, regardless of the season.Perfect for a day at the beach!

You’ll see banana and cocoa plantations, the crater of a dormant volcano, bubbling sulphur springs, mineral springs where visitors can bathe, 18th century forts and sleepy coastal villages. And could you really leave St. Lucia without seeing the Pitons, the massive twin volcanic cones that have become the island’s signature image? Lovers will search out secluded beaches, night-owls will find entertainment in the hotels, and bars, and yacht crews will find dozens of safe harbors, from small coves to an 83-acre marina and the large natural harbor, once the world’s 14th busiest port, which is overlooked by Castries, the lively capital town where French Creole houses can still be seen. Divers, snorkelers, hikers and golfers will all find happiness on St. Lucia.

St. Lucia is the perfect destination for Caribbean weddings and honeymoons. The natural beauty of this Caribbean tropical island seems to have been created for romantics. Palm fringed beaches, elegant old plantation houses, the soft tropical air, hypnotic steel band music, the tantalizing aroma of the cuisine all combined to make weddings, honeymoons and anniversaries popular on St. Lucia. St Lucia offers you the freedom of having your wedding just the way you want it. Wonderful climate, astounding beauty and friendly islanders make St. Lucia simply perfect, Simply Beautiful for your special wedding day.

Here is a list of the documents that you need to obtain a marriage license in St. Lucia:

* Valid Passport & Original Birth Certificate

* Divorce Decree Absolute (if one of the parties is divorced)

* In the case of a widow/widower a Death Certificate of first spouse is required

* If a name has been changed, a Deed Poll is required

* If one of the parties is under the age of 18, evidence of a consent of parents is required in the form of a sworn affidavit stamped by a Notary Public
