With their beautiful beaches, stunning sunsets and gorgeous resorts, there’s no denying that the twin islands of Antigua and Barbuda are the perfect destination for couples looking for adventure and romance.

Love is in the air pretty much 365 days a year. 

And there are countless opportunities for couples to celebrate and strengthen their love.

Maybe that’s why Antigua and Barbuda is fast becoming the Caribbean’s premier wedding destination.

Wedding Officiant, Carol-Ann Skepple, reveals just how easy it is to get married as well as some of the more spectacular celebrations she’s officiated at.

Mandie Braithwaite, the Wedding Manager at Blue Waters Resort and Spa, explains how she helps couples organise their big day and tells me about wedding that changed her life.

Melinda Fletcher from Dana Enterprises: Life Love Memories, shares her idea of the perfect romantic day in Antigua and Barbuda and how she can help you achieve it.

Antigua’s most exciting wedding dress designer, Kareem Jerome Simon, explains why his stunning gowns are perfect for any Antiguan island wedding.

And we hear from Emily Olsen, who got married in Antigua last December, for a bride’s perspective of what it’s like to get hitched in paradise and tips on how to make things go as smoothly as possible.

Bur first, we hear from Shermain Jeremy, the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority’s very own Romance expert.

June is the islands’ official month of Love and Wanderlust, and Shermain tells us about all the activities designed to make a visit this month extra special for those in love. 

Including a special Love Lane at the airport to whisk couples through immigration and into each others’ arms as quickly as possible.

Yep, cupid is working extra hard in Antigua and Barbuda this June.
