Clare and Greg… Married!

Hurricane Maria passed just to the north of Barbados on September 18th 2017. Clare and Gregory’s wedding was planned at Oceans Two resort on the island’s south coast. They were advised to delay their wedding but this wasn’t possible due to their travel arrangements.
As Hurricane Maria veered ever so slightly north the Tropical storm warnings lifted and the wedding was on. The hotel was on backup power, there was localised flooding on the island and the beaches were closed due to high winds and high surf. Clare and Greg got married in an upstairs conference room as it poured rain outside the hotel.
After the ceremony we looked out at the beach from the hotel balcony and as the rain had paused, we decided to make an attempt to get some pictures out on the sand.
These were never going to be the typical beach wedding photos from Barbados. Grey skies, (still) howling winds and a beach littered with debris from high surf. But in the end Clare and Greg had their wedding photos on the beach, and a story for the ages..
