On the wedding day I was a bit eager to get to the ceremony apparently I was 15 minutes early. I had accidentally set my watch 15 minutes fast. Oops. Darryl, my cabin boy, is speaking to the people on land.
Danny and his land crew were very confused as to my early arrival. So I was sent back out to sea to give them time to finish getting set up. I almost didn’t make it back the waves got very choppy. My boatmen got very horn happy while we navigated spanish point area.
Our Boatsmen: Wayne and Martin. Thank you for bringing my to the ceremony twice!
When the clock actually hit 5:00pm I arrived again. This time I had on anti-nausea wrist bands.
After being met by my brother and the ring dog and walker we got organized and started the walk to the isle.
Leading the Brides mates next is Darryl the cabin boy. Darryl was a big highlight of the wedding! I don’t know if I would have survived without Darryl’s calm even temper and ability to manage high stress environment and people. I would like to take this opportunity to give Darryl another BIG thank you!!! We love you loads.
Closely followed by Miriam. Miriam and Lori first met on October 31st in 1998! Then on October 23rd 2014 Miriam introduced Lori to Danny at “House of India” in Bermuda. Miriam, we are very thankful for the introduction! I a so glad we had the wedding in Bermuda so that we could dance at the my wedding to 80’s music together. Lots of love!!!
Just before Kevin and Lori Daniel walked down the aisle to join at the front with the other Bride Mates.
The best man Giles is checking in with Danny as the Bridal crew line up and Kevin walks Lori down the isle.
On Danny’s crew there is Giles who came in from England, James with Pepper, and Paul, who showed up in a wig! Paul you are full of surprises!! We love you all! You guys looked great.
I am not sure why Kevin has a machete. But it suits him. You can spy our mother in the background with a big smile. We are glad she got her passport and traveled across the country and into the Atlantic Ocean to be with us for our wedding day and the weeks proceeding.
Our officiant is the Reverend Musa of St. Marks Church in Bermuda. A very joyful person to marry us in our pirate attire. I think at this moment Kevin is wondering how long I can manage with my heals on.
I think I managed to have one photo taken before stepping out of the heals.
I am ever so glad my brother was at the wedding taking photos! I am putting on Danny’s wedding band. We love you Kevin.
Here is my mother giving her blessing/speech during the ceremony.
We actually tie the knot! Thank you Musa for incorporating this rope into our ceremony.
Then we sing a song as Lionel, James, Gary, and Danny play “Will Your Anchor Hold”.
I maybe should have given my Mates the words to the song. Oops. I am so glad we had a song.
After the song Giles and Daniel came up to sign as witnesses and Lori and Danny sign the registries for the official marriage licence. We are now married!!! In the side ground you can see our Mikale, I think he is asking his mom “Ok what do I do now?”
Next Danny has his pirate crew from Saltus sign a few songs before we do our first Dance/fight.
After our Dance the bar and food were up for grabs, and then speeches were made by Giles, Daniel, Danny/Lori, Lori ended up correcting certain details of Danny’s speech, and Miriam.
There was an ice-cream truck sword fighting lessons, stick on tattoos, fake moustaches, and water balloons.
At dusk the fire show starts! It was such a lovely surprise having 7 performers show up for the fire show.
Thank you so much to RockFire Productions for a most memorable wedding performance.
The music started with an 80’s dance mix party and then band Sonique Sanctuary played some rock music. A big thank you to the band for calling me out to dance to Led Zeppelin. My mom and I danced to that song and I will always remember how much fun we had dancing on my wedding night. In the background you can see Darryl and the full moon along with some of the band. The wet spots on the dance floor is balloons that exploded! I had a great time, as did many others. Occasionaly we are reminded by guests that we had a very fun and memorable wedding celebration.
