Real Wedding Review: Our wedding at Crystals in St. Lucia
Crystals cannot be fully appreciated until it has been
experienced! Nestled in the canopies of the St. Lucian rainforest, Monica and
Martin have created an intimate paradise, and I could not have had a more perfect
Crystals does not do conventional, and their weddings are no exception. The
style is rustic luxuriance and the hospitality is second to none. From the
moment we arrived at Crystals we felt special. Monica included us in every
aspect of the wedding preparation and guided us through stress-free, whilst she
organised the logistics.
As a guest at Crystals, you become a member of Monica’s extended family, so much
so that we actually invited other guests to our ceremony. We chose to hold our
wedding on the decking of the Papaya against the breathtaking backdrop of the
Pitons. Whilst not outwardly religious, the wedding sermon was romantic,
profound and relevantly spiced with West Indian sensibilities. We and our
guests were genuinely touched by the words that were spoken and they captured
the true affinity of marriage – something we will take with us through the rest
of our married lives.
Our reception could only be described as magical - a mini Diwali of candles and
solar powered fairy lights. The tables were dressed with the most beautiful
fabrics and the locally produced menu was freshly prepared to our
specification, along with champagne, wine and Martin’s (far too good) rum
punch!! One of the highlights has to be the eight-strong band of local musical
veterans who incited us to dance and sing the night away to all the classic
wedding songs we love. I’ll never forget our first dance to Eric Clapton!
Weddings should always be special and unique and this is something that a
wedding at Crystals definitely guarantees.
