The newlyweds landed in Antigua to the sounds of local musicians and were greeted by Asot A. Michael, the minister of tourism, economic development, investment and energy.
As part of the VIP welcome and reception, the newly-married couple, who arrived from London after getting married there, also received a special wedding blessing from the CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Colin C. James.
The couple will be spending the next week in Antigua and Barbuda at Hermitage Bay before Blue returns to the U.S. to continue his concert and recording schedule.
Blue is the latest winner of the popular program, The Voice, and is celebrating his newfound popularity with sold out concerts in Tennessee and performing at the Fourth of July Concert in Washington, DC on PBS.
He is the second celebrity to choose Antigua and Barbuda as a honeymoon destination in recent weeks, following upon Lionel Messi, arguably the world’s greatest soccer player, honeymooning earlier in the month with his new wife at luxury getaway, Jumby Bay.
Known for being one of the most romantic destinations in the Caribbean, Antigua and Barbuda is a twin-island paradise that offers visitors two uniquely distinct experiences.
The largest of the Leeward Islands, Antigua and Barbuda comprises 108-square miles. The destination includes 365 white and pink sand beaches.
Antigua’s rich history and topography provide clients with a variety of popular sightseeing opportunities. Nelson’s Dockyard, the only remaining example of a Georgian fort commissioned by the British in 1755, is perhaps the most renowned landmark. Betty’s Hope, built in 1674, is the site of one of the first full-scale sugar plantations on Antigua, and offers a chance to step back into time by visiting the restored mills.
