Turn your wedding into the holiday of a lifetime by choosing the stunning island of Barbados as your destination.
Part of the Commonwealth since declaring independence in 1966, Barbados still carries the influence of its earlier South American, Spanish and Portuguese settlers. The population today, numbering around 300,00, is mainly Afro-Caribbean but those with Asian and European roots also abound. This eclectic blend is apparent in the style, language and cuisine of the island. To avoid the wet season, weddings are best planned for December through to May.
Venues in Barbados offer an understated simplicity with a relaxed vibe, allowing you to make the most of the beauty and peace of the country. A decades-old clapboard hut on Carlisle Bay called Cuz’s fish shack has been voted amongst the top ten restaurants with amazing views in the world – and the only thing on the menu is fish sandwiches! Of course, there is luxury aplenty if that’s what you’re after, as resorts such as the world-famous Sandy Lane Hotel prove. Whatever you have in mind for your wedding, Barbados offers its very own Creole take on romance, nightlife, culture, adventure and food – and to top it all – some of the most incredible beaches on the planet.
