We are delighted to have been showcased in the Winter 2023 edition of Destination Weddings Magazine, for this stunning Pigeon Island wedding. From the magazine…
Lissa and Clément tied the knot overlooking the glistening Caribbean waters…
Before we decided to get married in Saint Lucia, we had been to Pigeon Island a couple of times in the past four years. Once, we saw the vestige of a photo booth on the cliffside from a recent wedding, and we talked about how nice it would be to get married there.
Then, a few weeks after Clément proposed in the Maldives, I was informed that I was going to spend a whole year working from Saint Lucia, so we seized the occasion to make that wish come true. We got married on the 4th of June, 2022. We had more or less 100 guests. If we had done the wedding in Martinique, where we both come from, it would have been twice as much. Celebrating our wedding abroad allowed us to have a small wedding with only the people close to us in our everyday lives.
We both loved being surrounded by all of our best friends. There was a lot of joy and laughter, making our day very special. To make it all happen, we had a great group of suppliers. We felt like everything was really happening when the photographer arrived to start taking photos of all of us getting ready. Luckily, the photographer put us at ease, and it was all very natural. We couldn’t have done it without our wonderful wedding planner Michele from Awesome Caribbean Weddings.
We didn’t have a theme for our wedding, but we wanted to incorporate all our favourite colors. Clément chose a green suit as he knew that color really suited him. It was a beautiful custom made design, perfect for the occasion. I knew exactly what I wanted to wear. I had picked the shape of my dress long ago. The first time I saw the design was on the red carpet. It was Zoe Kravitz wearing it, and I fell in love immediately.
Everything about our day was so special. We loved being surrounded by all of our favourite people, but at the same time it felt like we were the only two people there. We really made the most of it, and now we look back at it with smiles and happy tears.
