We had the most amazing time & the wedding went almost perfectly – everything was perfect except for the weather! It absolutely poured down the entire day except for a very lucky hour or so when we were scheduled to get married, then it started again! But we had a fab photographer who took some fantastic shots even though it was a bit gloomy (a few attached J).
Sugar Beach was something else, it really was. Poppy did a great job recommending it to us because we both said when visiting Boucan that we would have been terribly bored there. We did the bean to bar & then came a second time for dinner & it was lovely but not amazing. Although it was the ‘rainy’ season we generally had very little rain, it was a very light shower which wasn’t worth moving from the super comfy beach beds for. The food was out of this world! Even something basic like a pizza was amazing! Don’t get me started on the cocktails ;) and the villa was like something out of a Bond film! We loved it so much there. We did so much in our two weeks, the helicopter tour was amazing.
We would do almost anything to be back there, we miss it so very much. We have extremely fond & cherished memories of our time in St. Lucia but I think the highlight was definitely Sugar Beach so we have so much to thank you for, for recommending we stay there! Thank you so much for all your help, we do plan to go back in a few years’ time so we hopefully may speak to you again, maybe a 5th Anniversary trip!?
I have friends looking to go there now after seeing the photos so I will recommend they book with you and I hope they do.
All the very best,
Chris & Lou

We booked our two week holiday and Wedding through Simply St Lucia. We were recommended them by friend’s who had also used them to organise their wedding and Honeymoon in St Lucia.
My friend’s had promised me that it was made extremely straight forward and easy by the competent staff at Simply St Lucia. They were not wrong!
When I first rang, I got through to Poppy. She was brilliant! We were travelling with our two children, 5 and 2. I told Poppy exactly what we were after and she immediately suggested the Windjammer Landing. We went through lots of other options, whether to break the holiday up into two different resorts or stay at one. Poppy went along with all my thoughts and came back with prices and the best deals she could find.
What I really liked about Simply St Lucia was that all the staff have visited the resorts that they offer. If Poppy didn’t have the answer to one of my queries then someone else would. Even down to what restaurant would be the best to have our wedding dinner in. (Great cocktail advice too!) Two months before we were due to fly Poppy contacted us to say that there were building works going on. Obviously we thought the worse and had visions of our 2 week dream holiday being ruined by drilling and banging. Poppy made some phone calls and assured us that it would not affect us at all. She was right and even managed to get some money off our total holiday price because of the building work. We didn’t hear or see any works being carried out the whole time we were there.
Poppy got us in contact with our wedding planner at The Windjammer, Mel, via email. Mel was also fantastic. Everything was so easy I was convinced we had forgotten something. She took care of everything, we couldn’t have been more pleased. The setting, flowers, dinner, everything was perfect. We arranged a cruise after the ceremony, there were 22 of us altogether, and wanted to keep the party going. It was for two hours and it went around the bay. We watched the sunset on the ocean and then sailed back. There was lots of flowing drink and dancing and completely made our wedding! Mel was with us all the way making sure everything wen to plan, even joining in with the conga on the boat.
The actual Windjammer itself was beautiful, the set up was perfect for families and couples. The food was great, with plenty of options of restaurants and menus. There is always something to do but not too buzzy either. The staff were incredible, truly lovely people who adored the children. We are going to struggle to find anywhere else that will compare.
All of our family and friends had a wonderful time and we still cant stopped talking about it now, two months on! When we talk to our married friends about their wedding’s, there always seems to be so much stress and upset. We can honestly say that ours was the complete opposite. From when we first spoke to Poppy until when we touched back down at Gatwick!Wedding at Windjammer Landing
I just thought I’d drop you a line to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the Calabash, Grenada. We’ve both had busy years for various reasons and were looking for somewhere to really unwind in comfort – the location, the staff and the facilities fitted this requirement perfectly. The food, in particular, is really excellent – which does carry a slight risk of overindulgence but we coped with that risk pretty well too. This time the Virgin flights went pretty smoothly too.Mr I Lee
Many thanks to you and the rest of the team for making all the arrangements so smoothly; I’ll definitely be in touch again for more ideas next time we think of going to the Caribbean.
