Many of my couples reach me through referrals, like this one referred by a doctor friend. If you have had a good experience using the services of Cayman Weddings/Simply Weddings I hope you will tell your friends.

Couples often ask me whether they can include some local traditions in their wedding. Of course you can! Below is one of these traditions I like to use.

First of all, if you are having champagne to toast each other, the bridegroom must always open the bottle , and pour a glass for his wife and himself. Then I like to have them link arms, holding their glasses, and sip, and kiss. Sometimes this needs to be several kisses, to get the right shot! Then I like to take the champagne cork, split it, insert a Cayman coin, and add the date. Voila! A souvenir of your first drink together as husband and wife!

This rather nice shot is from the wedding of a very lovely couple yesterday. Vacationing from Kankakee,Illinois and staying at Morritts Tortuga they chose "Aunt Julia's Beach" in West Bay for their simple, but special ceremony.

A wedding is such a special occassion, and as you can see, I love what I do. My aim is to make sure your entire experience is positive, and that Grand Cayman will always have a special place in your heart.
