St Lucia, Windjammer Landing Wedding – Greg & Hannah Funnell
Congratulations to Greg & Hannah Funnell who tied the knot at Windjammer Landing , wishing you much happiness for your future together.
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. 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!
