Getting married in St Lucia has been made as easy as possible and as long as you have all the necessary legal documents detailed below, then it is a simple process. St Lucia prides itself on being the most romantic island in the Caribbean and is a popular choice for those looking to get married in the Caribbean.
 
Why get married in St Lucia?
 
St Lucia is a lush, green mountainous island with wonderful vistas and a wide range of places to stay. Both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic operate non-stop scheduled flights from London Gatwick and with a choice of regional add ons you can fly to Gatwick from elsewhere in the UK.
 
Many couples getting married in St Lucia choose one of the hotels which have no fourth wall, giving couples the most stunning views and a wonderful Caribbean breeze - something a bit different to an ordinary hotel - try Jade Mountain, Anse Chastanet or Ladera.
 
Arrive in James Bond style by helicopter! The best way of getting from the international airport in the south to the north of the island, where many of the hotels are situated such as Rendezvous, known as the Romantic Hotel, which is adults only and is a popular choice for couples to get married at in St Lucia.
