The four-star boutique Ocean Terrace Inn in St. Kitts, has introduced a free wedding package for couples as part of its 2015 re-opening specials.
The offer is open to all couples who book ten or more Superior (or higher level) rooms on the full breakfast and dinner (MAP) plan and stay for a minimum of five nights.
The 'Free Destination Wedding Package', which is exclusively designed for couples via the services of a professional wedding coordinator, offers the full marriage ceremony, the bridal bouquet and boutonniere, a lunch or dinner reception, Champagne for toasting and the wedding cake.
Couples can choose to marry in the tropical gardens of the hotel, on a nearby beach or against the backdrop of the island's Brimstone Hill Fortress and National Park, a UNESCO heritage site.
The hotel, which sits on a hilltop oasis amid tropical gardens, reopens on March 1 after an extensive refurbishment which includes the renovation of all 50 guestrooms. Couples can experience a range of island activities - from horse-riding or hiking through the rainforest to discovering the island on a tour. There are also dive facilities on site for novice or professional divers and for shopping, or to take in the architectural sites, the markets, shops and restaurants of the capital Basseterre are all within walking distance.
The free wedding package includes a free upgrade to a Junior Suite for the bride and groom with late check-out, a professional wedding planner, a ceremony in the gardens, minister or Justice of the Peace plus all legal documents, tropical bouquet and boutonniere, a private reception for the wedding party with buffet style lunch or dinner with wine and Champagne for toasting and a small vanilla wedding cake.
