As a licensed wedding celebrant, ( in the Cayman Islands I am known as a Marriage Officer), I perform hundreds of weddings and vow renewals every year. Yet sometimes, for some reason, an individual couple stands out. This was one such couple. They told me they had been together for 11 years, and their love and devotion to each other was very evident. I felt honoured that they selected me as their wedding celebrant, and I really enjoyed sharing one of my special wedding spots, Mary Molly Hydes beach with them last week.
A day made even better shared with good friends and fellow cruisers.
The couple selected this lattice-work arch to represent a "chuppah", a requirement in a Jewish wedding ceremony, which honoured the groom's Jewish background.
Here the groom breaks a glass to shouts of 'Maseltov'. This is to remind us that relationships, like glass, are fragile and must be cared for and protected.
With Joy and their Marriage Certificate
The Lennox 'Swans' cake-topper reminds us that swans mate for life.

This group preferred reisling to champagne, no problem. Non-alcoholic sparkling cider is also available, and complimentary if you are having champagne and have children in your wedding party.
This very unusual wedding garter was made of feathers. The groom got into the spirit of things and took it off with his teeth, according to Caymanian custom.
