The most romantic place on earth, sea and sand

Saint Lucia is the perfect place for love to be elevated. The island excels at accommodation fit for A-listers - including Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana, who recently renewed their vows here - and anyone else who wants an ultra-romantic retreat. These luxurious locations are known for sigh-inducing scenes and world-class retreats and resorts.

Planning the perfect day

From the paperwork, flowers and photography to the cake, reception and anything else that may be required. The ceremony can take place in the tropical grounds of the resort or barefoot on the beach.

Hundreds of places to say "I do"

AnseChastanet low resSaint Lucia has a whole range of wedding venues beyond resorts. You could get married on a yacht, or in a lighthouse, a botanical garden, a private villa, a plantation estate or under water! And, you will find no more picturesque backdrop for your wedding photos than the magical Piton Mountains.

Why wait?

Sunset on beach PitonsGetting married in Saint Lucia couldn’t be easier since there is no residency period. You can apply for a marriage license two days before the date of marriage at a fee of EC$335.00, or on the same day for a higher fee of EC$540.00. Standard documentation is required: passport; birth certificate; decree absolute (if one of the parties is divorced); a death certificate of first spouse (in the case of a widow/widower); a deed poll (if a name has been changed); a sworn affidavit of consent stamped by a Notary Public if one of the parties is under age 18; and an authenticated translation if required documents are not in English.

One further attraction of getting married in Saint Lucia is that you are perfectly placed for a honeymoon straight after the big day.
