What is so special about The Beacon you may ask?
Every bride is different and has a vision of their day embedded in their minds. It helps when a location is flexible and has the capacity to cater to every brides’ individual needs. The Beacon provides flexibility in multiple ways! Most weddings are done in the outdoors and The Maranatha Garden at The Beacon is the ideal place for an outdoor wedding. Beautifully and naturally decked with flora and fauna, the location offers a magnificent outdoor experience and feel for that perfect day.
A great wedding day at the beacon would start at 2pm with a beautiful garden ceremony at their Maranatha Gardens. The Maranatha Garden is also a prayer garden. The garden boasts a fresh lawn with a stone path leading down the aisle. Brightly colored gazebos to choose from including one in white. Wooden bridges, one with a pond where a duck named Matthew resides.
The ceremony begins with sentimental music from a saxophonist or your wedding Dj. Smooth Kenny G music accompanied by melodies from the birds in the garden along the trees dancing to the music with the aid of the cool Caribbean breeze. The two families converse with each other. The photographer and videographer does test shots, while the best man tries to keep the groom calm through his nervousness.
As you look around you may see a gardener in sight, caring for the garden the blooms with rich colors. Amongst the trees are flourishing mango tress flourishing with fruits.
The pastor will guide the proceeding with charisma. Vows are nervously exchanged. A song is sang by someone with angelic voice whilst the register is signed. The pastor then make it official and loud cheers echo during the official kiss.
The DJ plays American Authors Best day of my life while the bridal party dances away. They are left with cheers and applause.
The wedding guests then heads to the Beacon’s Restaurant for cocktail hour while the bridal party heads out to another beautiful location in Soufriere for their photoshoot. A steel pan band plays in the background, while the two families mingle.
The bridal party returns to more cheers and applause. Champagne overflows, emotional speeches are given.
