Love in Paradise: Alana and Darren’s Dream Destination Wedding in St. Lucia
In 2020, two nurses, Alana and Darren, had a Covid wedding in their backyard. However, they always dreamt of having their Dream Destination wedding in St. Lucia, and two years later, their dream finally came true! With only 25 of their loved ones present with some family coming from Trinidad, they even made sure that our team felt welcomed and like part of the family during their magical week-long celebration at the Royalton Resort in Saint Lucia.
The Wedding Day
On the initial evening of their island getaway, the couple hosted a warm welcome gathering for their esteemed guests. The following day, everyone indulged in leisurely moments by the pool, unwinding and making arrangements for the momentous occasion of Alana and Darren’s wedding day. Meanwhile, our team explored around the resort to find the best locations for creative photos for the wedding day.
On their special day, surrounded by loved ones, the couple got ready at the resort before heading out to the ceremony location on the island. Darren’s tears of joy moved everyone as they read their personal letters. And then, a rainbow appeared during the ceremony at the Ancient Ruins on Pigeon Island. So magical! The setting was breathtaking with golden chairs, tropical plants, and a glass walkway. Amidst nature and ancient ruins, they exchanged vows surrounded by their closest loved ones. We captured these once-in-a-lifetime moments for the sweet couple. It was truly the perfect day!
Our team captured every moment of their big day, including a quick creative on Pigeon Island after the ceremony, surrounded by colourful architecture, and a walk on the beach during blue hour to capture some intimate moments. Creative sessions were a must during this Dream Destination wedding in St.Lucia! Alana’s grandparents shared their first dance during the reception after 67 years of marriage after not getting the chance to have their special moment on their big day years ago. It was such a sweet heartfelt moment to witness! Their lively reception was followed by an after-party where they danced the night away. Even our photographers joined in!
The Island Tour
The day after the wedding, the couple and their guests went on an island boat tour to enjoy the landscapes and beaches of St. Lucia. They went snorkelling, saw dolphins, went on a hike, and even took mud baths. Our team came along for every part of the adventure to capture all their fun moments on the island. We even captured drone shots of the island from above!
Alana and Darren’s Dream Destination wedding in St. Lucia was a true example of true love that can conquer all, and inspire those around them. It was a magical week of celebration, surrounded by their loved ones, breathtaking views, and touching moments. Our team was honoured to capture every tear, smile, and laugh, and we wish Alana and Darren a lifetime of happiness together!
