The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, launched in 2022, a new romance campaign, ‘Love & Wanderlust’. Campaign highlights included the introduction of a ‘Love Lane’ airport fast-track service for couples travelling to the destination during Antigua and Barbuda’s Romance Month in June.

Romance Month also saw the hosting of Antigua and Barbuda’s Celebrity Destination Wedding with Grammy-Award winner Jeff Redd and Theresa O’Neal tying the knot in Antigua.

The destination also attracted the attention of top romance influencer couples during the year, including The Curly Coppers and Positravelty who chronicled their couple getaway in Antigua and Barbuda, sharing their experience with over 100K followers.

Antigua and Barbuda’s ‘Love and Wanderlust’ campaign plays on the idea that being in love, and the love for travel are intrinsically connected, as they both exude a feeling of euphoria.

Depicting Antigua and Barbuda as the perfect fairy-tale dreamscape for two people in love, or couples who wish to get married or renew their vows, is the focus of the campaign.

  1. Great news for my beloved Antigua.

    Maybe I’m biased – and why not -, I think we should be in top place, especially for seclusion, friendliness, high end cuisine and value for money; Antigua is up there with the very very best of the best!

    LOVE ANTIGUA … 🇦🇬

  2. With the previous murders and ongoing murders, I disagree. There are far more beautiful, quiet islands and safer places to be married. Antigua is expensive and most of the beaches have been destroyed by bouncy castles and development. Marriage Tourism is over in Antigua.

    • Name me a country where there is no murder, and I’ll prove the person an out and out liar @ Palmcross.

      Again, for value for money and tranquility especially in Barbuda, where I’ve walked for miles without encountering another soul. Just beautiful!

      However @ Palmcross, it’s all about opinions … I respect that.

    • @ Palmscross why don’t u just go back into the hole u crawl out of? There always has to be the dunce odd negative person of it all?! If u are an Antiguan, shame on u! If u are a foreigner go back where u came from! We don’t want any negative vibes here! Antigua is one of the safest place on earth!! There are violents everywhere but thank God we dont have a society where u get murdered to glimpse at someone!! Thats news for u!! Just shut up!!

      • I agree @ Shut up, if Palmscross had the guts to let us know where they are from, I can guarantee that I will find a lot more crimes, murders and misdemeanours than you’ll find in Antigua.

        Don’t you just hate it when people from other countries are quick to criticise without mentioning where they’re from. Cowards!

  3. Congrats to Antigua and Barbuda for still being one of the top places for weddings and honeymoons. It’s kind of ironic though that local Antiguans and Barbudans have one of the lowest marriage rates in the world. Perhaps we should take notes from our guests to figure out how men and women should get along and create families…
