My advice to all you GBP brides waiting to get married is dont worry, everytin is ire!!! No problem, yea mon!!!
Seriously, for all those that are worrying because the WC Beverly is slow in replying to emails and not giving much info, you dont need to worry. When you arrive at the hotel you need to ask to see Beverly, the reception desk will call her and she will come out to see you to book a meeting with you. When you meet with her she goes through everything and it takes a matter of 15mins, mine was a small wedding so larger weddings may take a tiny bit more in discussion. The ceremony runs so smoothly, you dont not need to worry about a thing! After having spoken with Beverly you can trust that she will arrange everything without a hitch. She really is fab, along with her assistant Chandlyn.
This is how my wedding went (just to give you an idea):
We met in reception (me, bridesmaid, mum, dad, beverly, driver) and got into a GBP buggy (abit like a large golf buggy) and drove down to the gazebo to the top of the steps.
Others were waiting down at gazebo (groom, bridesmaids partner who was fliming, minister, chandlyn, photographer, wedding helper).
Beverly helped us all out of the buggy and down the steps (we had to take it easy as there had just been a massive down pour an hour earlier and the steps were wet).
They started the music, my bridesmaid walked down first, followed by me and both my parents ( i had them both walk me down).
Bride and groom stood infront of minister facing each other, everybody else stood either side.
The minister asks who gives me away, there was a short silence until my dad realised it was him who was supposed to say 'i do' lol.
The vows are read out (we took our own). The bride and groom kiss!!
Bride and groom sit down to sign certificate (i thought i had to sign my new signature, but you dont, you sign with your old signature for the last time). Then witnesses sit to sign the certificate, this was my mum and dad.
We then had a champagne toast and a couple of photos. Then the first dance, and then the cake cutting.
Afterwards the photographer took us over onto the rocks to have photos taken with the sea behind us. We then walked back up and around the swimming pool to have a couple of photos taken around the hotel gardens.
We had an hour or so to burn so we sat in the gold room where there was air conditioning and drinks! I went to get changed out of my dress because i just couldnt sit down and eat comfortably in it, was a shame but at least i got to wear the dress again at my UK reception.
We had dinner in the grill restaurant where they decorate your table.
All in all it was a fabulous day, and i had nothing to worry about. It all flowed really well, and i wish now that i could do it all again!!!
If you need to know anything more then just ask, im happy to talk about my experience x
