THE PERFECT DESTINATION FOR ROWING & ROMANCE
Friday 2nd February 2018

Stuart and Laura Watts selected Antigua & Barbuda as the perfect destination to exchange nuptials just a few weeks ago. Organized by Indigo Wedding Planners, the couple tied the knot on the beach at Jacqui O’s Beach House.

This is nothing new…as Antigua and Barbuda is known as the Caribbean's Most Romantic destination.

What's new however, is the fact that only days prior the groom had rowed 3,000 miles across the Atlantic. Mr. Watts is a member of the Four Oarsmen team, the winners of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Not just winners, but record breakers as they crossed the Atlantic in 29 days.

Minister the Hon. E. P. Chet Greene congratulated the couple on their nuptials, and presented the Watts with mementoes on behalf of the Ministry of Tourism and by extension the Government and People of Antigua and Barbuda.

Here's coverage of the couple's nuptials in Hello Magazine. View the full press release by the Ministry of Tourism here.
