Half-Way Around the World for this Cayman Island Wedding

It was a beautiful,quiet afternoon on Seven Mile Beach. After some heavy showers, the beach was virtually deserted, and just before sunset, the light was remarkable for this Saturday afternoon wedding.

The couple were visiting from Muscat, Oman. They told me they had been together for 18 years. I did a traditional wedding ceremony with the 1 Corinthians reading "Love is patient..." in the new English version.

The beauty of Seven Mile Beach at sunset never fails to touch my heart.

The bride's friend did the decorating, with lots of orange rosebuds set in conch shells, draping tiki torches, and the bridal bouquet.

The decorations were simple, yet elegant

The "proof" shot. In the background the Island Club condominiums, a great place to stay right on Seven Mile Beach, and a great place to be married.

"We did it!"

This condo complex , the Island Club is "wedding friendly" and so I want to give them a plug. Believe it or not, not all the condominium complexes on Seven Mile Beach allow weddings, or vow renewals on their beach, and some of them are nasty about it.

If you are staying a condo, be sure to ask whether they allow wedding ceremonies on their beach before you book. You can also check with Simply Weddings to see what our experience with that particular condo has been. Another option of course, is to rent a villa if a private beach wedding is a pre-requisite for your Cayman Islands destination wedding.

Please note that Simply Weddings is experiencing difficulties as we transition to our new website, so bookmark our new site here and be sure and visit for lots of informations, FAQs and to download the application form needed to book your Cayman wedding or vow renewal.

Now a days very popular trend in the wedding industry is the destination wedding. Destination wedding is a time of romance, adventure, and excitement and lots of fun.
