Sunday afternoons are just ideal to grab a lovely afternoon nap after a long week of work. Where many may just be settling into a cozy couch or bed after that grand Sunday feast, we had the delight of settling for a beautiful late afternoon wedding. We arrived at the charming Cap Maison Resort an hour before the actual wedding ceremony as our couple wanted to start off with an elegant first look session proceeded by an enchanting garden walk on this beautiful property.
Their first look was short and sweet with lots of anticipation, excitement and tears of joy. Even though they shared a villa together, this beautiful bride still wanted to treat her husband-to-be to a small bridal surprise. As he stood waiting anxiously, she unveiled her gorgeous dress to him. After the thrill of emotions, we strolled through the garden for a delightful photo session.
As we moved closer to the start of the ceremony, we made our way to the terrace top of the villa where we were greeted with a breath-taking view of Pigeon Island glazed with a radiant sun minutes before it said farewell to a splendid day. The ceremony was simple, romantic and very touching. They smiled hopelessly as they stood facing each other, still taking in this marvelous moment on their private terrace. As they exchanged their vows we even got captured by the heartfelt words as two beautiful souls commit their love in the most perfect place.
This Sunday rooftop terrace wedding simply stated, was lovely in all aspects. It was exactly where they wanted to be and what they wanted to share with each other. A romantic moment of love and emotions beneath a colorful sunset that slowly greeted them goodbye as it slipped silently into the mountains.
To our wonderful couple we wish you two an amazing journey of love.
Planning a wedding in St Lucia lends itself to many diverse elements which can set just the right mood you’ve always been dreaming of when it comes to your special day. A beautiful white sand beach with a classic bamboo draped arched; a lush tropical garden with freshly picked petals spread along the isle or even a simple elegant pedestal wrapped with flowers with a majestic Piton backdrop are just some of the options to influence your day. Well, one couple did opt for the latter as they got married at the beautiful La Haut Resort which proudly boasts this extravagant Piton view.
Surrounded by friends and family they couldn’t be happier to share this moment as they committed their love to each other. The wedding was beautiful, simple and fun right through. After the final “I do’s” and the traditional kiss to seal the moment everyone lined up to wish the couple a momentous journey. With cheers, celebrations and confetti in the air they walked away as one to face everything together and forever.
Now with all the congratulations out of the way we had everyone gathered for group pictures then spent some one on one time with the couple as they engaged in their own playful and romantic moments. The twist however to this story was that besides this beautiful Piton backdrop which we could photograph all day long they decided to escape to the enchanting Toraille waterfall about 15 minutes away from La Haut. They wanted a private and romantic escape alone with each other, well accompanied by photographer and videographer off course 😊, where they can express themselves in this beautiful cozy escape. We can say that the moment was unbelievable to them for just moments ago they embraced the majesty of the Pitons and now in the shallow hills of a tropical waterfall. Simply Amazing.
As we said good bye to the Toraille waterfalls what better way to finish off this adventurous session than seeing them off on the Soufriere docks as they sailed into the horizon on what no doubt will be a festive boat ride back to their reception.

We have photographed many vow renewals over the years and there’s something extremely beautiful about saying “I Do” again. Love is indeed a journey that should endure all elements that surrounds it, unseen and unknown in most cases. Many couples embrace these elements to ensure an accomplished marriage, which like fine wine, only gets better with time (or so we’ve been told).
We had the pleasure of capturing such a lovely moment with an awesome couple who decided to renew their vows after 30 years into their wedding journey. 30 years makes one think where do such rear gems of marriages come from; what makes it work, how do they endure? We can say that just listening to them exchange vows gave us all the answers. There was no definite solution or any fairy tale story just two people in love who made a commitment and promise to each other for better or for worse. This is indeed the reality of a true fairy tale in today’s world with so much fragile love.
Their renewal was simple, beautiful and heartfelt. What made this day even more extraordinary was that this enchanting couple were witnessed by their 4 children; 3 girls and a boy who were all born out of this 30 year love. WOW was the first thing we thought as they told us about their life and their children. Like teen siblings we really appreciated the playfulness, rivalry and love they had for each other. From the random family laughs, to who’s the favorite child and even an awesome family DAB. They are definitely a blessed and warmhearted family full of fun, adventure and love. We were truly touched by them and just want to wish them another 30 years of love and more as their beautiful journey continues..
