Weddings in Antigua
With a long and historic seafaring culture, Antigua hosts some of the Caribbean's most famous sailing regattas. Antigua’s Sailing Week welcomes hundreds of world class yachts every year to compete for prizes and glory. English Harbour, a former British Navy base best known for Nelson's Dockyard is now a centre of sailing excellence. The island also holds an annual boat show, at which international owners and skippers show off their latest mega yachts to the admiring audience.
St. Johns’ is Antigua's charming capital, colourful and bustling with daily life as the locals go about their business. When large cruise ships dock at Redcliffe Quay & Heritage Quay, tourists disembark into port to patronize the plethora of local shops and cafes. Swim with stingrays, scare yourself at Devil's Bridge or simply lie on a different beach every day of your Dreamy Wedding vacation in Antigua.
