Dreaming of a Caribbean wedding? Just a half-hour ferry hop from St. Maarten, Anguilla is full of possibilities. These wedding venues offer three unique ways to say I do in paradise.
Private Villa: Ani Villas
For a baller wedding with celeb-level privacy and luxury, this walled estate perched on the north coast is modern accommodation and uber-chic venue rolled into one. Say I do in the lush garden, and party all night on not one, but two pool decks as the villa’s staff services your every need (including a private chef for night after night of multicourse feasts). And the best part: With 10 bedrooms, the whole place will be all yours.
Boutique Hotel: Malliouhana, An Auberge Resort
As Anguilla’s original luxury resort, opened in 1984, this completely renovated 44-room haven was able to snag the sweetest spot on the island — atop the sunset-facing curve of Meads Bay’s expansive crescent beach, accessed by a rocky staircase. After toes-in-the-sand vows, sip watermelon mojitos under mod black-and-white-striped cabanas. End the night roasting marshmallows from plush yellow sofas at the massive stone fire pit, equipped with the most gourmet s’mores bar imaginable.
Vintage Sailboat: Tradition Sailing Charters
Set your guests up for an unforgettable wedding adventure on board the last of Anguilla’s fleet of authentic rumrunner ships. An all-wooden boat with a bright red hull and gleaming white sails, Tradition is a picturesque venue with an expert crew to keep the champagne flowing while transporting your intimate party of up to 12 to Little Bay or Prickly Pear Cay for a seaside ceremony, lobster lunch, Cuban cigars and bottomless rum punch. Sail back under a chandelier of stars.
