Trip Report We Got Married at Sandals Regency

Jump to last reply

We first visited Sandals Regency as a place to escape to in 1990. We were so impressed with the Resort and the many weddings we witnessed while there, that we vowed to return and have our wedding there. We had one problem with doing that, though. The resort would not bend when we asked that we be allowed to bring on site our own photographer. We really did not like to see the washed out wedding dresses and the same poses everyone was doing. That was the one problem for us. We managed to find a way around it.

We rounded up about 10 family members who followed us down to St. Lucia, some of whom were pretty good with a camera, and asked them to shoot the ceremony for us. In fact, we got all the photos we needed from the room, all the way down to the wedding on the beach, and the reception without involving the Resort photographers. We then had Bill Mortley (billmortley@msn.com) meet us on the beach...he shot some of the ceremony photos, and then took us off the property and took loads more. We were very pleased with the outcome.

From the minute we got off the plane, we were treated like royalty. Special thanks to Alford, aka Big All for the information about our room, taking care of our bags and the smiles every time we saw you that week. Our Sandals experience would not have been the same without our waiter for the day, Javan, who brought us lunch, and an endless supply of chilled drinks, the Playmakers, too many names to remember. The volleyball, pool bar, and beach games were so much fun! Everyone made us feel welcome. I would especially like to thank Sandals for the Welcome Back reception and dinner offered to returning guests. This was very thoughtful and shows what a great company Sandals is. The food that night and every day/night was wonderful. The entertainment was very enjoyable and there were so many options to choose from. I just can't say enough about the beach and the water, just perfect! Our room was updated from the last time we went and it was cleaned daily, even when we slept in late! The grounds were maintained impeccably and the smell from the flowers was intoxicating (along with the rum). I did use the Spa for a massage, which got rid of a kink in my neck that let me relax and enjoy the week. I would highly recommend the spa, and the girls come around the beach with specials every day. Take advantage of that! We only took one excursion. You can book it directly from the guys on the beach. Sandals would prefer you did not, but rather book with them instead. The tour was fun and the snorkeling was fabulous! Special Thank you to all the staff at Sandals, you are really what make this place so special.
