Hot new tip The Caribbean has a longstanding tradition of being an ideal wedding destination on account of its white- sand beaches, azure seas and temperate climate, says Talbot. He reveals that because of high demand, Funway has also expanded its product range into Antigua, adding: “Like most of the Caribbean, Antigua is a fairly easy place to have a destination wedding because of the relaxed legal marriage requirements.” Talbot recommends couples check


out St James’s Club & Villas, which was added to Funway’s catalogue of properties in August. “Set on a secluded 100-acre peninsula on the south-east coast, the all-inclusive resort offers stunning facilities and its own professional wedding planners. The Hibiscus Gazebo is the hotel’s most popular wedding location with amazing views over the Atlantic Ocean. Mamora Beach has proved popular too – what could be better than getting married while sinking your toes in the sand right under a romantic bamboo arch?” Book it: Funway offers seven nights at the St James’s Club & Villas from £1,785pp including return flights from Gatwick, based on January 2017 departures. ■ funway4agents.co.uk
