Unusual features for these Cruisers Cayman Beach Wedding

This couple had a lot of special features in their Cayman cruise wedding, some of which I had never seen before. The bride planned every detail of her personalised wedding script, and the wedding included special order flowers, special order cake, a conch-shell aisle and flowers on the sand representing the couple's married name.
The Bride's father had a few words to say before handing over his daughter to the groom.
This was the set-up on the beach at Governor's

The Bride and Groom wore these little containers containing salt, around their necks
These are some of the words in the 'Covenant of Salt':
Joy: "Because Groom and Bride desire to seal this commitment between each other and God, they are giving each other permission to hold each other accountable to the promises made here today. Because they want to preserve these promises they will now partake of the Covenant of Salt.
Groom and Bride, today you join your separate lives together. The two separate bottles of salt symbolise your separate lives, separate families and separate sets of friends. They represent all that you are, and all you'll ever be as an individual. They also represent your lives before you today. As they two containers of salt are poured into the third container, the individual containers of salt will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of salt can never be separated and poured again into individual containers, so will your marriage be."
The salt was poured into this hand-made wooden container which was crafted by the bride's father.
The bride and groom take the forefingers of their right hand, dip it into water in the earthenware bowl provided, and then put their finger in the salt which they have both poured into the wooden container. They then put the salt in their spouse's mouth (usually on their tongue). Just before the salt is put in the mouth, the one receiving the salt says,
"I agree to do all that I promise for my (husband/wife), so help me God."
This beautiful two-tier cake was made by Faith at CayKes.
