Supermodel couple Afiya Bennett and Lloyd Dickenson’s honeymoon in Antigua and Barbuda


Antigua and Barbuda, is the start of ‘happily ever after, for sizzling model couple, “The Face” star Afiya Bennett and Lloyd Dickenson, who are currently honeymooning in the dreamy destination known as the Romance Capital of the Caribbean.

Bennett’s successful modelling career escalated following her appearance on season 2 of The Face, a modeling-themed reality television series, staring international super model Naomi Campbell. She met her model husband Lloyd while they were both on set, shooting for a Nike campaign.

A vacation spot for the model couple, Bennett and Dickenson last visited Antigua and Barbuda in June 2018 and were initially planning a destination wedding ceremony in the Caribbean island, known for beautiful beaches, and romantic settings.

The couple opted instead to tie the knot in New Jersey on December 15 and start their married life in Antigua, having arrived on December 17 for a romantic honeymoon at The Escape at Nonsuch Bay Resort, an adults-only, luxurious getaway.

CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Colin C. James said: “Antigua and Barbuda with scenic landscapes, and picturesque settings provides, the ultimate backdrop for dream weddings and honeymoons, so it comes as no surprise that models’ Afiya and Lloyd, fell in love with Antigua and Barbuda. We send congratulations to the couple on their wedding, wish them an amazing honeymoon, and a lifetime of happiness.”

And, the couple have been making the most of their Antigua honeymoon, as it seems that they’ve signed up for the Antigua and Barbuda Honeymoon Registry and have already begun participating in a number of excursions and romantic experiences offered on the registry.

Browsing through the destination’s  honeymoon registry reveals registry items such as hotel stays, off-road buggy excursions, spa treatments, kayaking and romantic sunset cruises.

Marketing Manager at the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Shermain Jeremy said, “We are thrilled that the couple, their family and friends have discovered and are utilizing the Antigua and Barbuda Honeymoon Registry. The Antigua and Barbuda Honeymoon Registry offers a host of suggestions on all the wonderful experiences that friends and family can purchase for couples as a wedding gift.”

The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority unveiled the honeymoon registry in June 2019, which is Romance Month in Antigua and Barbuda.  Using the website, married and engaged couples can create their own honeymoon registry ahead of travelling to Antigua & Barbuda. The registry is FREE to set up and there is a toll-free Customer Service number to help couples and their guests with any questions or concerns regarding purchases.

Antigua & Barbuda ranks among the world’s top ten destinations for weddings and honeymoons and one of its biggest appeal is that getting married in Antigua & Barbuda is easy. There is no waiting period or residency requirements for a wedding license to be issued and an array of wedding planners can make that special day relaxing, refreshing and hassle-free. The establishment of an official honeymoon registry makes it even easier for couples to capitalize on all the unique experiences and offerings available in Antigua and Barbuda.

  1. Never ever heard of either one aSUPERMODEL


  2. Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! “In order to terminate this neurotic situation, in which I am compelled to choose an unhealthy, conflictual solution, fed on fantasies, hostile, inhuman in short, I have only one solution: to rise above this absurd drama that others have staged around me, and through one human being, to reach out for the universal. When the Negro dives–in other words, goes under–something remarkable occurs.” ― Frantz Fanon, Black Skin, White Masks!

    That you “NEVER HEARD OF THESE TWO” is appreciated. “Who Cares Tho?” Maybe Just Maybe their hosts – that is People of African Descent resident on Antigua and Barbuda who welcome with open arms guests of our Caribbean Ancestry! That these young actors and models, a well known Couple of Caribbean Descent wished to be married on Antigua but celebrated their honeymoon on this little bit of paradise shows “grounding” and a full expression of their “marking” in establishing a cultural boundary around a particular cultural space in their short, yet exciting and growing human time!

    As Fanon exhorts, take a dive and learn not only of people of Caribbean descent but more so of African Descent who are creating exciting spaces in this time all around this globe!

    LEST WE REMEMBER! In This the International Decade for People of African descent 2015 – 2024! Miss Antigua and Barbuda, from a “small place” with a population of less than 100,000 souls, placed in the Top 40 of the Miss World Pageant! Miss France a woman of African descent was runner up! Who can forget the joyous expression of solidarity by Miss Nigeria! All five major 2019 pageant titles in this hemisphere now belong to black women, Miss World 2019 Toni-Ann Singh of Jamaica, Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa, Miss USA 2019 Cheslie Kryst, Miss America 2019 Nia Franklin and Miss Teen USA 2019 Kaliegh Garris.

    Our Tourism and Hospitality Product depends on Excellent Customer Service and Good Marketing! When such Black People grace us with their presence, it enhances our product! “The Beach is Just The Beginning” where “All relationships are based on centers and margins and the distances from either the center or the margin. When black people view themselves as centered and central in their own history then they see themselves as agents, actors, and participants rather than as marginals on the periphery of political or economic experience.” – Dr Molefi Asante on the Theory of Social Change!

  3. Y’all throw the word “super” around too much. Jasmine Tookes, Cindy Bruna, Leomie Anderson, Joan Smalls. They are current supermodels. Ain’t nobody know this chick.

  4. Let Us welcome These two SUPERMODELS to our shores. Every little helps to promote our Island . Welcome…Enjoy the warmth of our Island.
