The tiny island of St Barts’ actual name is St. Barthelemy. This island offers plenty to do – such as snorkeling, diving, windsurfing, sailing and fishing. You can find a beachfront room high above the water where the views are spectacular.
Most of the residents are French-speaking descendants of the first Norman and Breton settlers, so French is the official language, though just about everyone can converse in English. Gustavia is the main town, with a harbor full of impressive yachts and fabulous duty-free shopping for French and Italian goods. Most of the island’s 100 restaurants are here, and French cuisine is on par with some of the world’s best dining. Seafood is tops, from tuna and spiny lobster to fish soup prepared with imported ingredients that arrive twice a week from the United States and France.
If you would like to have a St. Barts wedding , the legal requirements are more extensive for this island due the policy that requires you to provide all the documentation to get married thirty days in advance of your wedding and the documents must be presented in person. Therefore, we recommend that couples have a civil wedding at home and have a reception and honeymoon on St. Barts.
