A Caribbean Wedding to remember!

We’ve known Mark and Anna for years and it was wonderful when they asked us to help with their wedding. We knew it was going to reflect there “island roots” and lifestyle,  and be low key,  charming and fun.  It was a true Caribbean wedding with visitors and family flying in from Jamaica and beyond plus a whole host of close personal friends from right here in Turks and Caicos. When you’ve known the bride and groom for year’s its always that much more intimate, more personal, more relaxed and fun.  We could mention that the power to the wedding and reception villa cut out as Anna walked down the aisle!!!!!!!! –  but thanks to the team at the villa AND the guests present, that wasn’t the main story of this wedding day.

Both Anita and myself covered the wedding – so whilst Anita was with Mark up at the Villa Bajacu – I was with Anna and the girls at Grace Bay Club. Love seeing both sides to the story at the same time.caribbeanwedding__0001 caribbeanwedding__0002 caribbeanwedding__0003 caribbeanwedding__0004 caribbeanwedding__0005 caribbeanwedding__0006 caribbeanwedding__0007 caribbeanwedding__0008 caribbeanwedding__0009 caribbeanwedding__0010 caribbeanwedding__0011 caribbeanwedding__0012

Growing up soooo fast ! I’ve said it before  -weddings are about family.

So even with no power Clive and his tam from Kissing Fish were still getting the food out!

Small, portable, generators were found from people’s homes, grills picked up by truck and dropped off at the villa and even Dr Slattery stepped in to help cook on the grills out back. Meanwhile a new transformer for the power was being sourced and transported so the power company crew could instal and save the day. With tropical breezes and such a great bunch of people, everyone kicked back and “kept calm and carried on” !!!!  😉
