Travel Talk - Destination: Antigua
Welcome to the premiere episode of Travel Talk only on Wedding Podcast Network.  Travel has become more popular than ever in the world of destination weddings and honeymoons because of the Internet. International resources are at our fingertips and WPN promises to bring them to you.  Let’s explore and discover different destinations around the world with experts in the travel and tourism industry – travel agents, authors, editors, event planners and newlyweds - ready to share their firsthand experience and advice.  We will provide information to help make the planning less complicated and more fun.

Where are we going today?  Paradise in the Caribbean.

Wedding Podcast Network was invited by Gordon “Butch�? Stewart to the inaugural weekend celebration of the Mediterranean Village at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa. Like Sandals says “Love is all you need.�? It was voted World’s Most Romantic Resort ten years in a row by the World Travel Awards and we can see why.

Hear Holli & Robert’s firsthand experience at this romantic resort and spa. There is something for everyone.  We visit the award winning Red Lane Spa exclusively at Sandals. We tell you about the variety of dining options and culinary delights, the pools and swim up bar, the white sand beach, the lighting, the gardens, the land and watersports activities, evening entertainment and so much more.  The live performances by Shaggy and Sean Paul were a special treat.  Celebrities spotted: Brooke Burke, Stacy Keibler, Teri Polo, Kimorra Simmons and Rumer Willis.

This is your opportunity to get to know Chairman & Founder Gordon “Butch�? Stewart, CEO Adam Stewart, and Managing Director Jaime Stewart-McConnell.  We also had the chance to interview Chief Romance Officer Unique Vacations Joann Delgin and Cheryl Hammersmith of Hunter Hammersmith & Associates about their new Luxury Included Honeymoon brochure.  Internationally celebrated event designer and wedding planner Preston Bailey tells us about his signature WeddingMoons destination wedding packages only available at Sandals.

We were delighted to be amongst our wedding industry colleagues: Rebecca Grinnals, Sylvia and Ben Weinstock, and Diane Forden, Editor in Chief of Bridal Guide magazine. We made some new friends in the world of travel: Lorri Robbins, Publisher of Recommend magazine and Penny Sheldon, certified travel specialist.

We would like to extend a special thank you to our hosts the Stewart family and the concierge team for a very memorable Luxury Included Vacation at the Mediterranean Village at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa.
