Today’s wedding is particularly close to my heart as it was celebrated right here in Barbados! On top of that, every single detail was styled to perfection by Emma Corrie Designs. Emma is one of the island’s top event designers and I have long been a fan of her work (you can see more of it here), so it is a true privilege to be able to share some of it with you. A huge thanks to Let us go photo for these stunning images!
From Let us go photo: Stacie and Max wed in Barbados, the beautiful Atlantic island where much of Max’s family still lives. Not only are the people of Barbados welcoming and friendly, their island is stunning with its gorgeous white sand beaches, sweeping sugar cane fields, colourful towns and expansive cave. We couldn’t have been happier to be invited along to document Stacie and Max’s wedding, time with their families and a portrait session all around the countryside. Most of Stacie and Max’s family and friends from out of town stayed at Crystal Cove, the small boutique hotel on the west side of the island where the ocean is calm. This allowed for a laid back wedding morning on the beach and in the pool. The details Stacie chose were perfect for an island wedding – her dress was traditional but whimsical, completed by the sparkles of her shoes and jewelry. After a first look on the beach at Crystal Cove, Stacie and Max were off to the Beach House, where their ceremony and reception were held. Set overlooking the ocean, framed by palms, the ceremony space was intimate, cool, and calming. With a simple white and green colour palette, Emma Corrie did an amazing job coordinating and styling the ceremony and reception. Preferring to spend more time with their families and friends on their wedding day in this gorgeous space, Stacie and Max opted to get back in their wedding gear a few days after their wedding to do their wedding portraits. It was truly a photographic adventure with highlights including stops at St. Nicolas Abbey (a 400-acre estate of undulating sugar cane fields, tropical gullies, and mahogany forests) and Animal Flower Cave (a cave on the north coast offering a spectacular window out to the sea and some moody shadows).
