Craig and Sarah live in Nottingham in the UK. They have known each other since their schooldays. Sarah is a primary school teacher while Craig chose the profession of roofing and ended up working with . . . Sarah’s father. From early days, destiny was obviously drawing this couple together.

Craig is a gentleman at heart. Two years ago, when he was planning to propose to Sarah, he first asked her father for consent – which was immediately granted. In fact, her Dad even accompanied his future son-in-law to the jeweller’s to help choose a diamond engagement ring. Craig proposed at Sarah’s birthday party in front of family and friends. For her, it was definitely the icing on the birthday cake!

The couple knew that they wanted to get married abroad. Having once been to Barbados, they had already fallen in love with the Caribbean but they chose stunning Saint Lucia as their wedding destination. There were a lot of boxes to tick when selecting the accommodation as Craig and Sarah’s families, ranging from a six-month-old to ‘seniors’, travelled with them to celebrate the occasion. The couple wanted a modern, stylish resort that would cater for everyone in their large group and provide value for money. They plumped for Royalton and have high praise for the facilities, their wedding co-ordinator and how everything ran so smoothly. “It all exceeded our expectations,” admitted Craig.

As for the big day: “It was a beautiful, breathtaking ceremony,” said Sarah. “It was perfect; everything that I had dreamed of. We had an amazing time.” One of her strongest memories is of walking down the aisle with the turquoise blue Caribbean Sea as a backdrop. “And then hearing those words: ‘You are now husband and wife.’” The celebrations continued with a sumptuous meal and then a boat ride with Mr and Mrs Chaplin having their first dance together on board. “It was an absolutely fabulous day,” Sarah confirmed.

TT compliments Craig and Sarah on their wedding outfits and wishes them many years of love and happiness.
