Arriving at the venue via white vintage Mercedes, Anna was greeted at the end of the aisle by Andy and their young son Wills. “It was so special to have him with us,” Nicola recalls. “Watching Mummy and Daddy get married!” The ceremony itself was a beautiful blessing, accompanied by some special readings and song performances by close friends which made the event even more special and unique.
“The actual blessing was just magical and everything we dreamed of,” says Nicola. “It was such a wonderful setting.” Pura Vida Beach Club & Restaurant was transformed into a boho-chic wedding haven for the day, complete with striking dream catchers from Indicadesign via Etsy, simple yet stylish flower arrangements by El Ramo de Flores, and elegant place settings that were topped with favour tags by The2lovebirds (also via Etsy).
Nicola and Andy chose the sweet tones of island singer Nell Shakespeare to entertain guests. She also performed a cover of ‘To know you is to love you’ for the couple’s first dance as husband and wife. Afterwards, the music was taken up a notch by DJ Claudio, and the wedding ended with a spectacular fire show on the beach, with the littlest guests taking home party bags filled with dress-up jewellery, toy cars and bubbles.
