Perfect Wedding At The Altamer
by Teraze Merlino
(Somerset, United States)
We got married in Anguilla on November 26, 2005, at sunset on Shoal Bay West at the Altamer.
The morning started with a rainbow, a blessing from above. Jo-Anne Mason coordinated the event to perfection. Tanya Clark at the Malliouuhana Spa took care of all hair and makeup needs.
I married my best friend at sunset, officiated by Rev. Lindsey Richardson who performed a wonderful ceremony. Sprocka a well known and talented entertainer on the island played guitar and sung many of our favorites. A wonderfully romantic evening, the perfect wedding in paradise.
The Altamer staff catered to us and treated us so nice. The ambiance was fantastic and the food phenomenal as Chef Leduc is award winning.
We stayed at the Zebra Villa in Mead's Bay. A splendid private villa with a guest house for the second bedroom, an inground pool surrounding the patio. The houskeeper, Elaine was a wonderful woman, who took care of us as if we were family.
The villa was conveniently located close to great restaurants like Malliouhanna, Blanchards, E's Oven, Tasty's, and Flavours. We enjoyed beach bars like Cuisinart, Johnno's, and our #1 favorite was our trip out to Scilly Cay for some beachtime and a great BBQ lunch of Chicken, Lobster and Crayfish...awesome. Sprocka was there too which made it even better!
Getting to know the locals, we were clued into some cool sites, like Little Bay were you park and follow a trail and at the end of the trail there is a rope that you can help you get down the cliff onto this beautiful beach surrounded by cliffs. Then onto Limestone beach with the softest white sand, beautiful aqua water, and waves like crazy.
We loved the island. I can tell from your site that you feel the same way I do about that slice of heaven on earth. Anguilla will always have a piece of our heart, and so will the great people we met from there.
P.S. Nori, your website is fantastic! Wish I had found it sooner. I have already subscribed to your newsletter and ordered your DVD.
