Russ and I would like to thank Kayt and the team for making our wedding day the most memorable day of our lives.
Like most we knew we wanted a destination wedding but the toughest decision was on which island to hold the ceremony. This choice was made easy when within 24hrs we received an email back from Awesome Caribbean Weddings laying out the first draft of the wedding programme which was perfect to what we wanted from our special day. After this there was no question who we wanted to plan our wedding.
From start to finish Kayt was fantastic, in fact no words can describe how wonderful she was. Nothing was too much to ask. Kayt guided us through everything, things we would never have even had thought of and everything was absolutely perfect on the day. The food was exceptional, steel band was superb and the scenery was breathtaking.
We would highly recommend Weddings in St. Lucia to anyone who wants a first class company to organise a stress free wedding which undoubtedly will be the best day of there life.
Kayt, Thank you, we are eternally grateful.

A huge thank you for the most wonderful pictures you took on our wedding day. I always feel a little awkward posing for pictures but you put me totally at ease and captured the day perfectly. We couldn't have been happier with how the pictures turned out and you knowledge of the location really reflected in the shots and made them extra special. We would highly recommend your services to anyone due to the professionalism of both yourself and the website.
We say thank you again but truly do not feel these words give you the credit you deserve.

I finally have had a chance to breathe since returning home last week. We both had to jump right back into work, so haven't had time to sit down and email you! I wanted to take the time to tell you what a tremendous experience we had on our wedding day. Seeing that I only contacted you in February, and our wedding was to be in late April, you got everything together for us pretty quickly, especially given our unique requests.
All of the contacts that you have and use and put into play on our special day were great---each driver was the nicest, most courteous we had during our whole stay, and the boat and the captains we used were great too----couldn't have asked for better people to be at our service that day.
The wedding with a view location was tremendous, just as you described---I cannot imagine having our ceremony anywhere else on that island but there. And of course, all of these things were decided upon based on your recommendations and thoughts via email (having never been to St. Lucia before), and we trusted your advice and experience fully, and it was perfect. And the hike......It was the best experience of our life, probably because it had been arranged as we desired to follow our wedding ceremony. I am proud to say that we were your first couple in all your years of experience that wanted to do something crazy like this (!), and we did it without a flaw due to your arrangements for same.
After our unbelievable ceremony which was private and breathtaking and so overwhelming for so many reasons, we changed into our hiking clothes, and were whisked off to the Gros Piton, where you had arranged our guide. We climbed, climbed, climbed, and made it to the spectacular top-----where we could see the ceremony location in back of Petit Piton. It was amazing. We then descended, had our driver waiting for us who took us to the boat dock, where they were also waiting to take us home. We had a lovely ride back at sunset to complete our wedding day.
As to the wedding itself, the officiant was wonderful, and Mikael, the photographer, was so nice to work with----we are dying to see our pictures and hope we look good in at least some of them :) (We were of course too caught up in each other and the ceremony itself to check ourselves in the mirror) You really are a gentle and kind person who displays in your emails and meeting with us how much you care about making sure everything goes right---thank you for making this the best day of our lives. If you need me to ever be any type of reference for someone who is not sure whether they can plan this sort of thing from far away, please let me know---I would be more than happy to! I hope you are well, and best regards,
I'm writing to thank you for arranging our wedding and to say how much we appreciate all you did for us. We were on our first cruise and decided we'd ‘quietly' get married at the same time.
Our options were many. At sea? On land? In a church? On a beach. Which Island? Which beach. With so many options I didn't know which to choose?
Then I found your web site. I viewed your previous customers' photos and comments, and made up my mind. Weddings in St Lucia for me, sorry us!
You gave us a wedding day and a wonderful experience we will never forget. From being picked up at the ship, taken to the beach and finally dropped back at the ship by a courteous driver in a sparkling white Mercedes , we could not have been treat better. Furthermore your costs were considerably cheaper than if we'd booked through a travel agent or the cruise line.
I can't thank you enough, for a totally stress free wedding (well almost – sorry about the hundreds of e-mails) at a fraction of the cost and in a perfect location – everything was perfect. The advice and help you gave me with the finer details from music to flowers was priceless.
We've also finally got round to putting our wedding photos in a album, Mikael was an absolute star, he took loads of ‘natural' photos – we weren't even aware of half of them being taken but they're all absolutely gorgeous. We didn't even think we were photogenic but he's really captured everything beautifully, more than we could have hoped for. Please thank him for us. It was a pleasure meeting all of you, thanks for a perfect day and fabulous memories. We very highly recommend Weddings in St Lucia.

I wanted to thank you and your team for making our destination wedding everything we could have dreamed of and more!
Even in the planning stages we knew we had picked the right company and were confident that we had a professional planner. I cannot thank you enough for making every aspect of our wedding simple and stress free. I love that your company allows the freedom to design your perfect wedding whether it is a grand affair or a small intimate ceremony like ours.
Thanks to you our wedding was one of the most beautiful, memorable and fun days of our lives. I continue to enjoy sharing our experience with everyone and highly recommend a destination wedding in St. Lucia, but only if it is through you.
Thank you again for making my dream of becoming Mrs. Lucia in St. Lucia a reality!
Fiona & Joseph Lucia
We just finished looking at all of our wedding pictures and it was like reliving that day all over again. The photographs and enhancements are fabulous. We truly appreciate the time and care you put into them. We were thrilled that most of the shots were very natural even the ones that were posed, this was definitely the look we were hoping for. Thank you for your professionalism.
Fiona & Joseph
There are precious few times in your life when your expectations are exceeded. There are few days in your life more important that your wedding day. To have your hopes for this important day be exceeded is an amazing thing! This is what Kayt Cooper and her team did for us. From our first email we knew we could trust Kayt. Her emails were prompt and detailed and - thankfully - had a sense of humor. She walked us through the process professionally and efficiently every step of the way leading up to the big day. And what a day we had! The setting was incredible (better than the pictures!) and Kayt did a fantastic job with the decorations and finishing touches. Everything was literally picture perfect. And Mikael (the photographer) captured it all in a way that was unobtrusive and let us relax and enjoy ourselves. When we saw the pictures we were so happy – Mikael delivered all the traditional shots we wanted, plus he managed to capture on film the moments that showed how we were feeling – that’s talent! We had a fantastic time on our wedding day – thanks to Kayt and her team at Weddings in St. Lucia. Kayt – we can’t thank you enough!
Sincerely, Lara and Geoffrey de Moraes, Canada
Mikael – this is a long overdue note to say thank you for the amazing photos you took of our wedding day. We just finished looking at the photos (all of them!) and we are thrilled. Mikael – you are truly talented! Your relaxed manor helped us relax and saved us from what could have been an awkward day trying to get the “right shots”. Thank you so much for going above and beyond the call of duty - 300 photos to choose from! And thank you also for all the care you took with our shots – the special effects and the black and whites are stunning. We will remember our wedding through your eyes – and we couldn’t be happier!
Sincerely, Lara and Geoffrey de Moraes , Canada
Back in July of 2004, my soul mate asked to marry me. Because I love the beach so much and we love being outside and nature, I knew we would not have a traditional wedding inside a building. And because I was going to marry the love of my life, I wanted us to commit our lives to each other in the most magical and tropical place I could find.
After considering several locations and failed attempts of trying to communicate with various resort wedding planners, I was very discouraged.
With the locations I was considering, I was finding out over and over again, that I could not have the beach ceremony I had always dreamed of. Resort, wedding coordinators were not responsive like I wanted. I was about to give up. Then, after reading several Jet magazines, I was noticing St. Lucia as a popular honeymoon destination. I searched the web for a wedding planner in St. Lucia and found Kayt and Michele. I emailed them and crossed my fingers.The rest is history.
Kayt emailed me back right away, and I have emailed her ever since for two years. I explained my every wish to Kayt and she bought every wish to life. Even on a shoe string budget. She was there whenever I needed her. Kayt is friendly, nice, patient, observant, and she listens to her couple. She is so organized and on top of things. Kayt turned my dream into a reality.
My wedding on the beach on Pigeon Island turned out to be more than I imagined. It was absolutely beautiful. Even my spouse cried taking in all of the beauty that was surrounding us that day. The canopy Kayt had constructed from a photo I sent her was even more beautiful than the photo itself. I feel so special because of my wedding day. What an awesome way to start a new life. Everyone who attended my wedding is still talking about it and how beautiful St. Lucia is. No one knew what we were really in store for until we got there and saw the beauty of that island and it's people.
I want to thank Michele for taking care of me and my bridal party while Kayt was at the wedding site.
She did a fabulous job setting up and decorationg the CoCo Palm's Ti Banne for my brunch reception. It was absolutely perfect. Thanks again Michelle. You and Kayt work great together.
Using this company is the way to go. They have a wonderful staff, they are organized and do things in a timely way. Rupert, the guitarist was so friendly and played so beautifully. I hope he cuts a cd. I will be the first to purchase it.
Mikael, the photographer is awesome as well. I have never met people so nice as these mentioned. It was a complete honor to have Mikael taking our pictures and they are so wonderful. I can not put into words how special and beautiful my wedding was to me. Thank you so much for everything.
Tracey and Donell Beale,
After our engagement, we knew we wanted to have a destination wedding but were unsure of the location. Multiple Google searches later, we found ourselves in the St. Lucia website and soon thereafter, the website. Little did we know, we were about to embark on one of the most of the most wonderful experiences of our lives.
This is where it began. Our initial e-mail was answered by Michele in less than 1 business day. Her words were comforting and quickly silenced any reservations that we once had. Throughout the 5 ½ months of planning, Michele was very prompt and professional and always reminded us when decisions need to be made. The communication process from start to finish was absolutely flawless and eased the burden of planning a wedding around our hectic schedules.
The planning process itself was also very enjoyable. Trust us, Michele will lead you in the right direction and let you know when choices need to be made. Planning our wedding was simple because Michele provided options that we could tailor to meet our specific needs. We had 14 family members and friends traveling to St. Lucia with us and they were all staying at different resorts on the Island. No worries, Michele assisted us with travel and accommodations as well as wedding planning. Honestly, our biggest fear was forgetting sunscreen.
The first class treatment continued as Michele met us at Jalousie Plantation the morning after we arrived. We ran over every little detail and became quick friends when we learned about a shared passion for rescuing stray dogs. Michele was also very honest about a pending tropical wave that was set to arrive on our wedding day! Again, no worries, she had a Plan B to accommodate any inclement weather.
OUR WEDDING DAY WAS PERFECT! Buckets of rain couldn't dampen the beauty of what Michele had put together. People came from Rendevous, Jalousie Plantation and Coconut Bay with no problems whatsoever. The ceremony was perfect, the location was amazing and the decorations were beautiful. Every detail had been taken care of. Our cupcake wedding cake was gorgeous but more importantly, delicious. Dinner was first class and was also delightful. The weather broke and we were blessed with a breathtaking sky of fire surrounding the magnificent Pitons. Without a doubt, the wedding of our dreams had now become a reality thanks to Michele.
If we had it to do all over again, there isn't one thing that we would change about our experience with Michele andthe team. If you are looking for a dream wedding in the Caribbean but want something more than what a resort offers, then trust them to make your dreams come true. We are so grateful for the way we were treated and the service received. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Mikael is awesome. His photography really helped to tell the story of our special day. Our friends, family and co-workers have all been very complimentary of Mikael's work. His talent is evidenced in the gallery portion of the website so we don't really need to comment on that. What we would like to say is how Mikael shipped our photos to us overnight at the last minute in time for us to use them at our local reception. Michele helped to broker the deal and we are so appreciative of the service received even after our wedding. Thank you, Mikael, for helping preserve the day our dreams.
Chris is also very talented. Our video was perfect and captured the essence of what our wedding day was. Because of Chris and Mikael, the video and the photos will always help us to remember every precious moment of our wedding day. Genuinely, thank you.

I refer to the the wonderfull wedding day you arranged for us on the 6th December.
We wanted - no hassle - no stress - no fuss
We got - a wonderfully relaxed, well-organised and thoroughly enjoyable wedding. We would have no reservations in recommending you to any couple planning their special day in St.Lucia. Once again, thank you very much.

Bill and I have always wanted to be married on a beach. We first visited St. Lucia a cruise and quickly decided that it was the perfect island for a destination wedding.
From the very beginning Kayt was helpful and thoughtful providing lots of options but never overwhelmed us. I can’t express how grateful we are to have had Kayt as a coordinator! She kept all the details organized and her suggestions were greatly appreciated. From the moment we began planning we were kept abreast of goings on, such as our chosen reception site being sold and a new patio being built at a different restaurant. We followed her suggestions and were blown away with the results! Kayt made sure that we had everything we needed and were prepared to get married.
We knew that she was planning to meet us at our resort, but expected to be carted to and from a lawyer’s office. To our very welcomed surprise we never had to leave our big, comfortable chairs and the JP came to the hotel to see us!! Kayt took care of everything so we could enjoy our time in paradise. No detail was left out from extra flowers for my hair to an emergency tent when rain threatened the skies. I have rarely been so well taken care of!
Our families were not so keen on the idea of using a coordinator outside of a resort and kept asking why we wouldn’t. Initially we looked into the resort weddings but they were all very similar and didn’t allow us to make any decisions as to decorations or flowers and did not offer the choice of a private setting. Neither of us liked the idea of being on a public beach and having strangers gawk at us. We were able to be married on a private beach and go to a resort where everything revolved around us and it could not have been more perfect! Both of our parents are still raving about the wedding and what a smart choice to use the planner we chose. The beach was beautiful and private and the restaurant Jacques was equally as private and the best food we had while on the island! The whole experience was so amazing that any expectations we had pale in comparison to what we actually received.
Everyone who works for or with the company could not have been more pleasant and professional. Mikael was so nice and took so many beautiful pictures. I’m not sure how he did it but you can actually feel what it was like to be there that day just by looking at the pictures! His timing is impeccable and was able to capture the joy on all of our faces! Posed pictures were difficult to get because it rained after we were married but the candid pictures more than make up for it.
Our videographer, Chris, did a phenomenal job at creating our video and we were surprised at how quickly he works. The video opens with scenes from St. Lucia and the whole video is set to music we used at our wedding and closes with our family members wishing us well and offering advice. The first time my family watched it we all cried it was so beautiful. Mikael and Chris both offered to meet with us the next day on the beach to get more posed photos. Although we opted not to, we were blown away by the lengths they were willing to go to in order to make our day perfect! Bill and I are so grateful to have had Mikael and Chris both be a part of our day.
We are laid-back, fun-loving people and Kayt, Fenella, Mikael, and Chris meshed so well with the whole family that our whole family is still telling anyone who will listen how perfect the day was.

I wanted to thank you for putting together a wonderful wedding for Sherri and I. Sherri and I were so glad we found you on the web. Please feel free to use this letter as a testimonial for your future potential customers. The best part of your service was the one thing that was missing: STRESS! What was wonderful is that we didn't have to do anything except tell you what we wanted (I thought it was funny when Sherri mentioned you told her we could ride to the beach on horseback). Not having to plan every detail (or any of them) was a nice: Sherri and I enjoyed our honeymoon cruise knowing that you had taken care of every aspect of the wedding. The wedding was perfect! We loved every detail. The rose petals, the champagne, and the photos were excellent. The whole wedding was a job well done. Sherri and I would like to thank you for giving us wedding memories we will not forget!
Michele, We wanted to thank you for an absolutely unbelievable wedding in St. Lucia. After a terrible experience with Royal Romance through the Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, both you and your company came through for us. Not only did you come through, you were able to arrange our entire wedding in less than two weeks. We thought our special moment was lost due to the other company's in ability to complete our plans, tell us where our wedding would be, or even get a boutonnière for the best man, given they initially had 2 months to plan our wedding, it was extremely stressful with NO customer service. After weeks of no return phones calls and no information we were left we no other option other than to cancel with Royal Romance. We found you on line 11 days before our wedding. Michele assured us that we would be able to arrange our wedding in this tight time frame. Michele went to work for us that Saturday and Sunday, getting us everything we needed to make every decision we needed to make in only two days. Through emails and some phone conversations and your attention to detail we had every detail of our wedding planned. We were able to look forward to our wedding day.
Not only was the site you recommended absolutely beautiful, but your attention to detail was fantastic. We were able to customize our wedding right down to every detail we had dreamed about, including the colors of the flowers and type of cake, videographer, photographer, and the island tour in a limo after the wedding. Your ability to complete our dream wedding was incredible. We never even had to leave the ship to get our wedding license, its hard to believe, but if someone is looking for a complete wedding company they should look no further. You saved our special moment from what could have been a disaster.
If anyone is taking a cruise and getting married during the cruise in St. Lucia they need not look any further. We originally thought have the wedding through the cruise line and their company (Royal Romance) would be easier to do with less stress. As it turned out, that could NOT have been further from the truth. As it turned out Michele and the team took a very stressful moment and turned it into a truly Awesome Wedding for us. Again, thank you and your entire staff for making our Caribbean wedding a special moment for us.
& Michelle Garrity
We wanted to thank youfor planning such a beautiful and
completely stress-free wedding for us. When we got engaged we had talked to several friends who complained of not being able to eat lunch on the weekends because of having too many wedding related appointments and being too tired and stressed out on their wedding day and we knew that having a big wedding was not going to work for us. Then someone dropped an idea of a destination wedding and the more we looked around, the more we liked the idea (Ok, the idea of being barefoot on the beach really bought me).
One of my web searches I came across this website and after
reading all exciting testimonials and learning more about the island, we knew it was the right place for us.
I was somewhat nervous about distance planning but Kayt did a wonderful job handling all the details of the event. We exchanged a lot of emails and she was always there with suggestions and recommendations when we needed them. On the wedding day, Kayt and Michele made us feel comfortable and we were able to relax and enjoy our day the way we wanted to! The flowers were absolutely gorgeous and the photographer was fabulous. The pictures were great and several people had told me that the pictures look like they are from a magazine.
Thank you for arranging everything so perfectly, right down to the last minute champagne and getting us back to our place. With your help, our special day was absolutely everything we could have hoped and dreamed it to be. It was awesome! Yefim and I greatly appreciate all you have done.
Yefim and Tanya, New York, USA
Kayt and the team
allowed us a stress-free wedding.
for locations along with the photos helped us make the best
decisions for our wedding.
Our wedding was PERFECT!
& Jay Groesbeck
Our wedding in beautiful St. Lucia was the best day of our lives! I began planning with Michele a very long time before our wedding date and she was there every step of the way answering any question I had and providing information that I didn't even have to ask for. Originally we started looking to be married in St. Lucia because we had always wanted to attend the Jazz Fest but after I met Michele the decision was easy! Our wedding ceremony was perfect and my guests could not stop telling me how awesome everything was and that my wedding was the best wedding they'd ever been to! Michele could not have been more attentive to our needs and all of her staff was great too..the steel pan band "The Harmonites" even carried my mother-in-law in her wheelchair up the stairs to the ceremony site! Not to mention we got to play a song with them which was one of the many highlights of the evening for me. Michele made sure she covered every aspect of my ceremony outline..she even helped shield the wind from blowing out our unity candle. There just aren't enough words to express how great and unforgettable that day was for us and all of our guests.
I'm recommending St. Lucia and of course Michele to anyone who's getting married or even thinking about it.
About the photos...
I have to give Mikael a hand for taking such great photos! I'm one who never likes to take pictures and more so never likes them once they come out but I have to say that I love every one Mikaell took! The close-up of the unity candle flame and of our rings are phenomenal. I also love the black & white photos with the splash of color kept in them..I get so many compliments on those. We also thank you for putting up with us and our guests, I know it can be hard to settle us down and get down to business sometimes! Thank you for the wonderful memories.
With love and gratitude,
Khris & Janaya Means
both want to thank you all, for organizing a lovely, stress free
wedding for us.
Kathryn and David Cameron – Spain
It was finally great to meet you. Just wanted to let you know how thankful I am of everything you've done.
Let me first start off with the hotel you recommended, Villa Beach Cottages. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the cottage was right on the water which I loved since we fell asleep with the sound of the water and woke up to the peaceful crash of the waves. Pigeon Island, the site of our wedding ceremony was truly an amazing place to get married with the view of the water and mountainous backdrop. The cake was just like the image I forwarded and the flowers were really beautiful, even better than I had hoped. But the most important part of our wedding was the photographer and photos. The photos turned out to be really natural and the style mostly photojournalistic, which I had hoped them to be. I would definitely recommend the photographer to all of your clients!
You have truly done an amazing job. Wishing you all the best.
