A Traditional Wedding goes to the Beach

Kevin & Tatiana’s destination wedding in Barbados combined a traditional church ceremony in a cathederal with the beautiful backdrop of a beachfront reception.  The bride shares their wedding story with us!

Kevin and Tatiana's real wedding in Barbados was a dream come true!

“We always dreamed of having our wedding in Barbados and shortly after getting engaged we decided to make this reality. Our friends and families were very excited by this decision as not only would those living in Barbados be able to celebrate with us, but those living abroad saw this as an opportunity to spend a week basking in the sun on the island’s shores, especially the Bride’s family who are originally from Brazil.

Traditional church wedding at a cathedral in Barbados

A traditional wedding ceremony was held at the historic St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Cathedral. The church’s architectural beauty and local choir offered the perfect ambiance for the exchange of our vows. We hosted the reception at a local seaside restaurant, set on the sandy shores and showered in the colours of the evening sunset.  We chose this venue not only for the spectacular location, which allowed us to take our wedding photos with a paradise backdrop, but it provided a large outdoor area to host our guests and the several international food stations.

Family and friends gathered on the beach to celebrate the wedding  Our wedding colours and flowers were chosen to reflect the vibrant tropical colours that are often affiliated with the island paradise. The arrangements, wedding decor and lighting were all prepared locally and surpassed our wildest dreams. We were also very impressed by our photographer – Steve Cumberbatch – who did an outstanding job in capturing the moments of our special day, which we will look back on forever.
