St. Kitts and Nevis could offer the perfect wedding destination for you and your partner. The group of islands are peaceful, secluded and most importantly romantic. They offer everything that wedding couples want and deserve.
While the islands are more commonly referred to as St. Kitts and Nevis, they are actually called the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis. Located in the West Indies, the twin-island country is part of the larger Leeward Islands formation. St. Kitts is the larger of the two islands, but that does not take away from the beauty and romance that Nevis is able to offer. Nevis is just two miles southeast of its larger partner, separated by “The Narrows.”
Why Is St. Kitts and Nevis Perfect for Your Destination Wedding?
While you want a beautiful location, what makes St. Kitts and Nevis perfect? After all, there are so many other options, right? One of the best things about the twin-island country is that it offers something for everyone. There are simple beach weddings, strict Roman Catholic services and many other options available on the island. You don’t need to make compromises.
St. Kitts is one of the favorites for destination weddings. Mt. Liamuiga, a dormant volcano, lies in the mountain range, covering much of the center of the island. There is also a beautiful tropical rain forest to offer you something different for your wedding photos. You will soon feel the romantic atmosphere around you when you step onto the island.
Nevis offers beautiful and luxurious beaches. It is the most peaceful of the two islands, and perfect for a day of relaxation. You could opt for the ceremony on one of the more private beaches and then take the rest of the party to St. Kitts.
The islanders love their festivals and enjoy a party. Some of the festivals include the Carnival between December 18 and January 3, the St. Kitts Music Festival and Nevis’ Culturama
