Barbados Weddings Love Stories
Jenny and Jesse researched Caribbean wedding cruises in a Royal Caribbean wedding brochure, selecting one that offered a day in Barbados and coupled it with a beach ceremony, and a Barbados wedding cruise reception for their party of 70 – what a fitting finale to their very own Pirates of the Caribbean wedding scene!
Beach weddings in Barbados are often a dream come true for many of our couples and Jenny and Jesse were no exception. They arrived at their Barbados beach wedding and were completely in awe of the beauty before them, a scattering of fresh flower petals created an aisle between two majestic palm trees, and the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea mere feet away.
Jenny was cool yet elegant in a strapless, white satin, empire dress with a small bow embellishment. The couple sealed their love flanked by bridesmaids stunning in blue, with vibrantly coloured island flowers in hand, as the Steel Pan serenaded them with sweet melodies of the tropics.
Groom Jesse complimented her in the perfect Caribbean wedding suit of off-white linen, while the groomsmen wore matching Caribbean wedding shirts of crisp white, with off-white slacks, accented with red button holes.
Once the “I Do’s” were said, a refreshing thirst quencher of authentic, iced rum punch was appreciated by all.
With rum punch in hand, some guests paddled their feet in the gentle surf, while others took their cue from the youngest guest present, and danced barefoot on the beach, swaying to the rhythms of the five member Steel Band. Even after experiencing this once in a lifetime wedding, guests had no idea what was yet to come. From the horizon, they watched a private catamaran sail ashore to collect them, and the party commenced with celebrations onboard, all while under sail!
Everyone joined the bride and groom for an enchanting swim with the turtles, and snorkeling on the reef, before enjoying an authentic Bajan meal onboard. As the summer breezes cooled, day turned into evening and the wedding party mellowed. A job was well done, as a perfect day was had by all. Can you imagine a more fitting, tropical island, wedding reception in Barbados?
So when considering destination weddings in Barbados or wedding locations in Barbados, don’t forget the pleasures of the crystal clear, turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea!
Personal message from Jesse & Jenny Isherwood of California, USA.
We were married on March 22nd, 2011 on the Beach in Barbados. We were on a Caribbean cruise and were in Barbados for only 10 hours. Lisa and her team at Weddings Beyond Your Imagination ensured everything went perfectly! We planned our wedding for over a year from a distance in California. Lisa was always very informative and had great ideas. We had 70 guests at our wedding and had absolutely nothing to worry about. Everything went extremely smoothly due to Lisa’s diligence. She coordinated everything to do with the ceremony including transportation, refreshments, music (a steel drum band – awesome), flower arrangements, etc. She also coordinated our reception which was a celebration on a catamaran. Everyone had an amazing time at sea with great food, great drinks, and a great crew. We also got to swim with sea turtles! We can’t say enough about the job Lisa and her team did. Our day was unbelievable and we would absolutely recommend Weddings… beyond your imagination!!
