Why choose Barbados?

Many couples choose Barbados for their wedding because it is one of the easiest islands to get to from all over the UK with a range of scheduled airlines offering daily flights and also a selection of charter flights operating from both London and regional airports. This is a benefit if you are thinking of a large Caribbean wedding as your guests will have a range of budget options to choose from.

Also, the choice of accommodation on Barbados is broad from large elegant villas to small boutique hotels which are perfect for taking over for a private weddings. Let us help you to find your perfect venue.

Barbados is easy to get around and explore, you can hire a car (they drive on the left) or take one of the regular buses that go along the coast road past all the hotels. A sail along the West Coast is a must as well as swimming with turtles in the Caribbean sea.
