When you think of the Caribbean you probably think of white sandy beaches, palm trees and azure blue waters with a history of plantations, slaves and pirates. Well how about a Caribbean Island where the official language is French, the currency is Euros and there's not a plantation in sight? The tiny island of St. Barts is chic, glamorous and very luxurious. It's extremely hilly and has some of the best beaches in the whole of the Caribbean. Weddings abroad in St. Barts are becoming the choice of discerning couples looking for a world of sophistication with which to wow their guests and with plenty of small hotels and private villas in which to get married or hold your reception, your special day will be truly memorable.
With such a prestigious settting, getting married here is naturally more difficult. One of the couple have to live on the island for at least a month in order to obtain a residency card. You will also need to take blood tests within 3 months of your marriage and produce medical certificates. In addition you will need a letter of good conduct, also confirming your marital status, and you will have to get French translations of all your documents, certified. There is no fee to be paid.
