Sailing into the sunset…

Sailing into the sunset…

Many of our weddings take place on Grace Bay beach – and why not? It is the most beautiful beach in the world, if we say so ourselves! But Jolyn & Rick wanted something a little different. They boarded Beluga for an idyllic sail around to a deserted beach that we had scoped out the day before (see here for details!). Once there, Luise was wardrobe assistant for Jolyn to change into her dress before the ceremony! This was a wedding full of smiles, laughter and fun, with Jon from eyeSpice there to capture each moment, including an unplanned swim and a heavenly...

Sometimes It All Comes Together… Michelle & Keith’s Impromptu Vow Renewal!

It was one of those perfect Sunday afternoons in the Turks & Caicos; a few of us out for a lazy boat trip. We decided to pull up at a deserted beach – then we spotted a natural arch in the stone… This particular boat happened to have on board three wedding planners, a photographer and a couple with a 30th wedding anniversary… Within 5 minutes we pulled together a secret plan to lure the couple to the arch and surprise them with a vow renewal! Naturally we needed all the important touches – Ocean Vibes’ Captain Wayne became a minister, we fashioned a bouquet from palm fronds, made a garter from a carrier bag and luckily we had some delicious mini cakes to hand. Of course we had Champagne with us already – we are civilised...

Let’s Do It Again – Helen and Basile’s Vow Renewal

Helen and Basile were relaxing on Grace Bay beach on their last holiday in Turks & Caicos when they saw a couple getting married on the beach. This inspired them to renew their vows here. They wanted a simple, family-based ceremony with lots of personal touches. Helen is very artistic and made all the decor you see in the pictures – she even etched their names on the Champagne glasses to make a personalised toast for the whole family! After the photos were finished they were off to dinner at Opus, where Helen was really looking forward to a gooey chocolate dessert to celebrate… Congratulations on 20 happy years of marriage!

Nazli and Patrick; Family, Friends and Fun…

Nazli and Patrick didn’t stop smiling from the moment I met them! From their welcome evening aboard a sunset cruise through to the end of their wedding day there were smiles, laughter and love all around – just how it should be. A lovely ceremony at Seven Stars was followed by an unusual group photo (we’ll see the result of that in a few weeks!), cocktail hour and a fantastic first dance, where after a few slow moves the couple switched to ‘Happy’ and invited everyone to join them… Dinner saw Nazli and Patrick’s family and friends make some emotional and fun speeches with hugs and tears all round, before everyone hit the dancefloor again. Thanks to Anita from Brilliant Studios for capturing all those special moments...
