Magical Memories: Our Dream Wedding in St. Lucia with Awesome Caribbean Weddings
Originally, we planned to wed in January 2025, but fate had other ideas. Our family trip to St. Lucia from December 31st, 2023, prompted a change of heart. We yearned for an intimate ceremony there, reflecting our love, surrounded by loved ones. St. Lucia, with its charm and special meaning to my husband, became the perfect destination.
Our search led us to Awesome Caribbean Weddings via Google. The glowing reviews and heartfelt testimonials from past couples caught our attention. We reached out, unaware that this choice would lead us to our dream wedding.
From our very first interaction with Fenella and her team, it became abundantly clear that we had found the perfect match. The distance of 4,000 miles between us was never a barrier. Planning a wedding can be an incredibly stressful endeavor, especially during a time when we were both navigating new beginnings. I had just started a new job, and we were diligently saving towards our dream wedding in 2025. This, coupled with the fact that we needed assistance to stay within our budget, made choosing the right wedding planner of paramount importance.
The entire planning process was seamless and stress-free, thanks to Fenella's exceptional organisational skills and her ability to turn our ideas into a reality. Her professionalism, responsiveness, and warm personality made us feel like we were in the most capable hands throughout the entire journey. Fenella and her team not only embraced our vision but also helped us navigate the intricacies of planning a destination wedding with finesse. They ensured that every detail was meticulously taken care of, from finding the perfect location to coordinating with vendors and creating a day that was nothing short of magical.
The wedding ceremony at the Historical Ruins was nothing short of a fairytale. From the Steel Pan Band to the simple yet effective decor, every element came together seamlessly. A heartfelt thank you goes out to our marriage officer, Danielle "Lulu" Bergass. Her vibrant spirit and melodic voice added an enchanting touch to our ceremony, making it truly unforgettable. As we exchanged our vows in this historical and picturesque setting, our hearts overflowed with joy. We'd also like to extend our gratitude to the talented videographer, Tarrick Alexander. He skillfully captured the essence of our wedding ceremony, creating a beautiful short video compilation that perfectly encapsulates the magic of the moment.
Following the ceremony, we made our way to Jacques Waterfront for our wedding reception, and once again, Fenella and her team exceeded all expectations. The venue was beautifully decorated, the service impeccable, and the cuisine exquisite. Our guests continue to rave about the delicious food and the overall ambiance of the evening.
Fenella, your attention to detail, creative vision, and unwavering commitment to ensuring our day was perfect left us in awe. Thank you so much!
To anyone looking for a wedding planner in St. Lucia, we wholeheartedly recommend Awesome Caribbean Weddings. They turned our dreams into reality and gave us a wedding day that will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

AWESOME Experience with Awesome Caribbean Weddings
When we initially reached out, I could tell Michele was truly dedicated to understanding our vision and getting to know us. She was very thoughtful in providing feedback and recommendations. She even helped us with resort recommendations when I was trying to secure guest accommodations and find a reception space. I could tell that she was committed to ensuring our day was a reflection of us and our story, and her attention to detail was unmatched.
The guidance and support provided by Awesome Caribbean Weddings made the planning process a breeze. It is so easy to get overwhelmed with all of the wedding details, and while that still happened to me on occasion, Michele's organization and approach to planning made it very manageable. She was very responsive and on top of things, ensuring we never missed a deadline. She provided extremely valuable input on what would look nice, details or decor that may be missing, and she even helped me pick a bridesmaid dress color based on our floral selections. I appreciated that she was honest in terms of what would help us achieve the look we wanted without steering us toward more expensive options. She also handled all of the vendor communications for the most part, and the quality of the vendors she uses is just impeccable. Based on our experience with Michele, I trusted that she would use the best vendors and not sacrifice quality for price, but she still was able to secure great rates. The only vendor of ours that was not one ACW works with was our photographers, as we used a company we've worked with previously (plus they're good friends). I put off planning pretty much until the last 3 months, but everything came together even better than we could have imagined.
Our wedding day was an absolute DREAM. We chose the Piton View venue for our ceremony and held our reception at Stonefield Villa Resort (based on Michele's recommendation). It was important to us to let the destination and views speak for themselves, and just enhance the experience with simple touches. Awesome Caribbean Weddings absolutely delivered. Our guests are still raving about the views and flower arch from the ceremony, the steel pan band from cocktail hour, and the food served for dinner. When I walked into the reception space, I was blown away by seeing how it all came together. Having Michele and other members of her team there throughout the entire day allowed us to really enjoy every moment and not stress. I knew we were in good hands.
To anyone considering a destination wedding in St. Lucia, I will always recommend working with Awesome Caribbean Weddings. They will bring your vision to life and exceed all of your expectations. We will be forever grateful for Michele and all she did to make our dreams a reality.
