Countryside Wedding at Clifton Hall Great House
Cherie and Lucas have got to be one of the sweetest couples we’ve met.
They met 12 years ago at the famous Harbor Lights and it’s been a magical journey ever since. Lucas and Cherie have had many adventures together – particularly exploring Argentina, Lucas’s home with some pretty awesome stories. But their biggest adventure has been their daughter, Ellie.
When I walked into the quaint cottage at Clifton Hall, the most gorgeous little girl was standing in the doorway. Bouncy blonde curls were everywhere and they framed her gorgeous face. It was as though I was looking at Goldilocks from Goldilocks and the three bears. And the beauty didn’t stop there. Ellie’s mom, Cherie, has got to be one of the lovliest people I know. She is a kick ass Momboss with her own graphic design business, she heads Together Tuesdays – a group that meets every month to talk all things business, she has a heart of gold, and bonus, she is beautiful. What makes her shine, is that she doesn’t like to have the spotlight on her. But this is one day she couldn’t hide, and why would she?
The wedding took place at the breathtaking 16th Century Villa, Clifton Hall in St. John, Barbados. It was threatening to rain, but even the thought of rain didn’t put a damper on the day – all pun intended! The fabulous Emma Corrie of Emma Corrie Designs created the most dazzling space, so weather? What weather?
After the ceremony the reception started, and this was one epic reception. During our meetings, Cherie let me in on a little secret: “Aniya, get ready, the Argentinians are crazy, they party H.A.R.D”. And so of course, a huge smile came across my face. And they didn’t let anyone down! DJ Andre Rebel Elias dropped the beats and kept everyone moving all night long!
This wedding was one of those that you don’t want to leave. It was one of those weddings where love was so evident. It was one of those weddings where you smile, all day long.
Wedding photographers you feel me, right? It was just one of those weddings!
