You can’t hurry love

St Lucia Wedding Photographer The Wedding Photography of Rosalie Heligar and Jean Luc De Percin was a sweet reward at the end of a twenty-year courtship to rival any soap opera. 44-year-old Jean Luc, who works with a fertilizer company, lives in Martinique. Rosalie, 41, is the Guest Services Manager at a hotel in St. Martin. The two met two decades ago in Martinique. “I was pregnant,” Rosalie explains. “When I gave birth he was there.” Then inexplicably, “I decided to leave. He never knew and he looked for me.” For years, he kept asking her whereabouts from her sister Clara, who still lived in Martinique. They both went on with their lives. Jean Luc had a son, Rosalie married and also had children. But the chemistry endured. Years later Rosalie began searching for Jean Luc via her sister to his best friend. He never got those messages. She then took a more direct route. “My sister knew that he was asking for me all the time, so we surprised him.” “I was just being polite,” says Jean Luc, who went over expecting to do Clara a favour but instead found Rosalie. She says, “When he came in and saw […]

“Best Time Ever for Our Weddingmoon. Yeahhh Mon!!!!”

Wedding Photography Reprinted from We had an absolutely magical experience in St. Lucia!! Please do not read the negative reviews and let them sway you in any way. Please go and experience the resort and the island for yourselves, I promise you will not be dissapointed. Trust me! :o) ARRIVING IN ST. LUCIA (5/2 – 5/7): Make sure you bring a pen with you. When you arrive in Customs it’s going to be a little chaotic, everyone has to fill out papers before you’re allowed out of the airport, and you don’t want to be the one person running around asking everyone for a pen……..*blushing*. They will not provide one for you. We had a private car transfer from the UVF Airport to the Sandals Grande resort. It’s an hour and a half drive. (Well worth the money!) Or take the helicopter transfer if you can. The roads are still damaged from the hurricane, so the ride will be rough getting up to the resort, but the views on the way are absoultely stunning. ARRIVING AT THE RESORT: Once we arrived, we were greeted with champagne and cold towels. This was great because it was so humid, and […]

Wedding Photography Etajh and Zayne Johnson’s Wedding Photography may have lacked the drama normally associated with the day but for them it was exactly as it should be. “What made our wedding so special was that it was so intimate,” says Zayne. “There was nobody there we didn’t know. The most important thing was having family there. Family and close friends.” Officiating was Pastor Charles, also known to Zayne and her family from her church, Castries SDA. The young bride, turned 24 the day before her July 4th wedding, making it easy, says her husband Etajh, to remember the wedding date. Zayne is a recent graduate of the University of the Southern Caribbean (USC), where she met Etajh. Also 24, he is an interim pastor in St. Maarten and works with the North Caribbean Conference of Seventh Day Adventists. Etajh graduated a year before Zayne but they had already formed a strong bond. “The very first time I saw Zayne was on the steps of my dorm… looking lost. She was a freshman and I had been there before. First time I spoke to her? She was walking from the library to the female dorm and I said hi.” Etajh […]

Surprise!!! We’re Getting Married! In St Lucia!!!

It was sandy breezes, sunny seas and a lover’s seal, as soul mates John Jones and Karen Hardy tied the knot. It was not the traditional Wedding Photography  but after all says Paul, “It’s not about family, it’s about two people.” These two share a five-year connection that began with friendship. Manager of an auto repair centre in Darlington, south of Newcastle, they met when John was the head of an auto repair department in the car company where Karen was a sales agent. They became friends, not imagining the breakdown of their marriages would one day lead to a new relationship. Their friendship dissolved along with the company but the two reunited over coffee in 2008 after a cold and lonely New Years when they both were going through divorces. After a few odd jobs on the divorcee’s apartment, John says a “cunning” Karen rewarded him with a meal and “She got me drunk so I couldn’t drive home. That was the start of our relationship.” From helping each other through their rough separations, they eventually moved in together but John and Karen were in no rush to the altar. But Karen’s ingenuity again came into play. After approving […]
