Wedding Ceremony at Raffles Resort on Canouan Island

It was finally time for the ceremony at the beautiful chapel.



Father Garraway is a minister at the Episcopal Church on Canouan Island, and he officiated. Everything looked beautiful with pink rose petals strewn down the aisle. I loved how they made a heart for Synda and Alex to stand in.


This is Synda's mom. She claimed not to be photogenic, but I think she looked striking and so elegant!


The steel drum music was perfect for this island ceremony.


Larissa (on the right) was the first family member we met when Ruth and I landed at the airport and shared a ride to Raffles Resort. She was lots of fun and looked beautiful too. I'm not kidding - this was a good looking crowd! Synda and Alex had cute fans so their guests could keep cool.


Alex's grandmother soon joined in the conversation...


Korinna cracked me up as she walked down the aisle with a big pout on her face. I think she was even more adorable with a nervous pout!


Here comes the bride...


Does she look happy or what?


I decided to try to incorporate Father Garraway's Bible in the foreground while Alex and Synda were praying in the background.


There were several readings by friends...


Then they were pronounced husband and wife and everyone cheered and took pictures! I love this shot because it shows how excited their friends were for them. This is one of the major advantages to having two photographers at a wedding - you are able to capture so many more things!


Last, they signed the marriage register. If this register looks old...it is! You have to click on the image to see it larger and to read all the comments. This book has been around since 1910 registering all the weddings on Canouan Island! Look at the larger image and read how they list Synda's condition...too funny.


Oops...I just realized that it is probably too small for you to read even when the larger view is shown. Her condition is listed as: spinster. :) lol

Reception pics will be next.
