The Wedding Library: Caribbean Island Wedding, Part 2
Posted by theweddinglibrary
Styling a wedding shoot on an old cocoa plantation on St. Lucia provided a profusion of French, British, African, and island inspirations. The best one was the food. I worked with Ladera's sous chef to create these amazing-looking and delicious treats.
1 The chef holds a combination platter of star anise, local fish, scallops, and a vegetable blend.
2 We presented these skewered Carib sugar-cane shrimp on local pottery. A water-lily pad lined the charger.
3 An appetizer roll filled with delicious fresh chicken and herbs rests in my favorite frog dish.
4 The resort overlooks the Piton Mountains. You can see them in the distance and also on the local beer label.
5 Here's a close-up of local "tangines" (used to cook many dishes), cocoa berries, and the island-made cloths, which served as the color inspiration for the shoot.
6 The table is set with local dishes, and we're ready to begin the meal!
How are you incorporating local food, drinks, and recipes into your wedding? I'd love to hear!
