When footballer Rio Ferdinand wanted an island hideaway for his wedding, he plumped for the very private Peter Island. Unlike Rio, you may not feel the need to charter a jet for your guests, but once there, they'll be bewitched by the white sand and turquoise waters. Tie the knot on the beach, or say 'I do' aboard the island's private yacht.
