Full of elegance and charm, our feature of the week, and first feature for December comes from the beautiful island of Barbados! Port St. Charles Yacht Club Restaurant made for the most romantic day, and the simple yet utterly sweet details designed by Adriana Wed member Whirlwind Events were just divine. It was truly love at first sight for the entire team when this wedding popped up in our inbox, and we must admit that we think that this is the best way to kick off the last month of 2018. Read all about Antoinette and Ricky’s whirlwind romance and see more from their breathtaking day, captured perfectly by Life Photography by Aniya.
FROM THE WEDDING PLANNER:
Antoinette and Ricky are from England and the bride has roots in Barbados as her mom is Barbadian.
They wanted to enjoy a well-organized wedding that was family focused. Antoinette did not want to spend any time on her big day worrying about how things would fall into place. They both just wanted to arrive at the wedding and enjoy all the magic of the day.
They chose Port St. Charles Yacht Club Restaurant because it is stunning and highlights the best features of the island- stunning views of the ocean, open air, perfect food and of course, entrance by boat!
The Port St. Charles Yacht club restaurant requires minimal décor, and Antoinette wanted to keep things chic and simple. She asked for a lot of clean white to be a canvas for her adorable sea glass place cards/ favors.
Aniya Emtage Legnaro of Life Photography by Aniya did a wonderful job with capturing the wedding. I believe her style of getting the perfect candid shots is best to capture the genuine love and happiness expressed in this wedding, and between the bride and groom.
Whirlwind Events offer a wide range of services for destination wedding couples, from full service planning where they just show up on the day, to wedding day management or décor only. Because we are based on island we have the advantage of familiarity with a great network of vendors ready to make your wedding dreams a reality. Our website has all the contact details.
My favorite moments from this wedding were: When the guests threw confetti on the couple, when the couple arrived at the reception on a boat, and the bride’s grandpa heating up the dance floor!
