To tell the truth, I didn't want to do a wedding in Hell.  I  had never officiated one there before, and I didn't think it was a good idea.  However, this is what this Cincinatti, OH bride wanted, and when I met her I could see she was a free spirit with a mind of her own, and a groom who doted on her.

Welcome to Hell, Grand Cayman

"Hell" is jagged limestone rock caused by natural chemical weathering.  You can also get your post-cards and letters post marked "Hell" Cayman Islands.

Marriage Certificate says, "married in Hell, Grand Cayman"

Everything went well, and we used the less-touristy boardwalk behind the Post Office, which was big enough for a group this size.

Celebration took place at Blue Water Beach

Many of the bride's friends contributed brooches to add to her bustier.  This included a brooch her grandfather gave her grandmother in 1942

A very unique wedding outfit
 The bride eschewed the traditional bridal bouquet, and chose instead a wired arrangement which snaked up her arm, and showed off her ring and her turquoise nail polish.

An unusual bridal flower arrangement

I don't think any of those in attendance will forget this highly original couple, or unusual wedding ceremony for a long time.  Yes, I have also agreed to another "Wedding in Hell" this November.
