FIND YOUR INSPIRATION & CREATE THE WEDDING OF YOUR DREAMS Only you know what will make your wedding a dream come true. It's the most important day of your life, after all. So make your celebration uniquely your own, with a destination wedding designed exclusively for – and by – you. Let our inspirations inspire your imagination to create the wedding of your dreams – from storybook romance to avant-garde or refined coastal luxury to breezy island chic. You can mix and match our tasteful décor options to reflect your personal style. Our inspirations are styled ideas, colours, flowers, and finishing touches that will guide you through the planning journey and bring your vision to life. Whatever your inspiration, we're here to make it happen.
There's nothing simple about the elegance of a white wedding when infused with the natural beauty of the islands.
ROMANCE Step into a storybook romance surrounded by blooms as beautiful as your love. This inspiration sets a blissfully pure scene for your perfect day in a garden-domed gazebo or an open beachside pergola adorned with a crystal chandelier and draped in white chiffon, white roses and hydrangea blossoms. Shepherds hooks with rose-covered ivy balls and flowing satin chair covers with dangling strands of pearls create even more magic. The romance overflows to your reception, where twinkle-lit pillars illuminate a natural canopy, or a daytime celebration showcases the vibrancy of the sea against the elegant white backdrop. 14
WHEN IN THE TROPICS
THE TROPICS Make a grand entrance beneath a dramatic row of splendidly arched faux palm fronds adorned with the elegant simplicity of brightly coloured blooms. With your guests looking on from their crisp tropical seating, a palm-lined aisle welcomes you to the seaside altar where you’ll pledge your endless love. The island vibe infuses your reception, too, with colourfully staged tables and chairs adorned with hibiscus set beneath an open-air tiki. Wicker lanterns sway above, white citrus coloured hobnail votive splash warmth and sparkle across the scene.
Go with the island ﬂow & create a special day ﬁlled with tropical blooms & endless romance.
SOPHISTICATION Make a statement, a signature statement, one that's sophisticated and simply breath-taking. Your “I do’s” will take centre stage beneath a trellised canopy and floral circle of love chandelier graced with tassels flowing in the wind, as your guests look on from chiffon-braided seats. Shepherds hooks with flower-adorned ivy balls create a dramatic aisle. It’s all unified into one beautiful scene, like your love itself. The sophisticated reception is graced with luxurious linens, tassel accents and towering arrangements of white calla lilies and lush blossoms. Choose an architecturally designed bar to make your statement of love even more inspirational.
Toast your union with a reception featuring an architectural geometric bar that perfectly accents the classic details of inspiration.
An unique interpretation of avant-garde design.
PASSION This inspiration is for couples that want to make a fashionable statement of modern love. A crisp white picture frame altar with fiery blooms of fuchsia and orange sets the stage for a vibrant testament to your endless love, while guests look on from relaxed, modern cube seating. The modern statement continues at the reception, where imposing architectural centrepieces add a dramatic pop of colour, while white tables contrast with bright linens to create a stylistic mood as bold as your love.
LOVE IS IN BLOOM
GARDENS Love blooms in a garden of greenery and flowers blossoming from aisle to alter. Vow your love to each other beneath a wooden altar swathed with beautifully embroidered linens, while guests look on from seats draped with flowing chiffon sashes accented with individual bouquets. Transform your reception into an elegant garden party at tables set with layers of rich fabrics and draped with living flower runners and faux leaf placements. 18
Envelop your love in the natural botanical beauty of the Caribbean for a truly special day.
SAND & SEA The nautical look of this inspiration is complete with an aisle made of oars.
As breezy as the sea air floating off the shore, this nautical inspiration begins with an aisle of tall oars intertwined with braided white rope. Colourful buoys at the entrance and along the sides of the chairs continue the seafaring vibe. Flowing chiffon with floral tiebacks glean from the white trellised altar as imposing shell-filled vases complete the crisp look. Nautical embellishments add flair to your reception, with starfish and seashell details adorning vases and chair sashes. The aqua accessories and linens, and seafoam-coloured glass accents, mingle with the sea.
THE ISLANDS Ethereal and dreamlike with a tropical twist, this inspiration wraps couples in the pure beauty of the environment, with a bamboo bridge of green and white blossoms lining the raffia aisle. Billowing chiffon sashes drape the bamboo-style alter, adding the perfect touch of chic glamour. Even your reception boasts a scene that seems to emerge organically from the lush landscape, blending the unbridled beauty of paradise with chic details to make your day extraordinary.
With a tropical twist, this inspiration is the ideal choice for nature lovers with a stylish side. 20
NATURE For a ceremony as breezy and natural as the islands themselves, look to this organic inspiration. Carefree shabby-chic meets relaxed romance, beautifully blending nature with artfully crafted details. Become one surrounded by a custom-made altar of branched driftwood adorned with elegant florals and matching ivory linens. More blooms overflow from white lanterns, glass vases and driftwood spheres on wooden pedestals. Your reception will be cloaked in subtle earth-tone linens and wooden accents. White hydrangeas, curly willows and greenery tower from table centres, with driftwood details carrying over to your guest seating.
Rustic elements gathered from the islands themselves add a natural sophistication to your special day.
Combine INSPIRATIONS TO DESIGN YOUR OWN
