We got married here on 29.10.13 and had an amazing time. We found the website when searching for beautiful places to have our destination wedding, coming all the way from London UK it was a daunting experience!
Though we were very nervous at first as we had never seen the area or spoken to Paul, Magda or Patty we were soon to find that this was going to be a pleasure and not daunting or scary at all. I emailed in for a quote giving frankly very brief details about numbers of guests and time of year and got back the wedding planning guide and timeframes. Everything was so detailed and you could go through and pick and choose elements that you wanted to make it special and individual to you and your groom/bride.
Paul and Magda corresponded with me through email almost exclusively due to the difficulties with time difference and this was no problem and every little query/concern was answered quickly and with extra added help.
They helped me to plan the perfect hassle free wedding, also they helped e to arrange a fishing trip for my groom and friends for the day before the wedding, and my spa appointments for hair/make up etc at Ciao Bella day spa which was simply amazing.
Even after planning every detail I wasn't expecting the amazing scene that greeted us upon arrival. The resort was beautiful and just what i had hoped for, for a destination beach wedding. We arrived a few days before and us and our party of 20 - including lots of little kiddies - were staying at the resort. The Pool and Tiki hut - which we had full use of - were clean and lovely, very big and the pool had both shallow and deep areas for all the children, and adults needs.
We had a lovely relaxing few days before the wedding and i was so pleased to finally meet Paul, Magda and Patty who were such genuinely lovely people i was overwhelmed. Magda helped me so much with all the finer details and her eye for detail and precision with flowers, tables and designs was second to none, I almost felt like my sister was helping me to plan the day.
On the day of the wedding I was so happy to see it all coming together, there were hoards of people combing the sand, setting up everything bringing in potted palms, and table decorations it looked beautiful. The were setting up from around 8am and the wedding was at 5.30pm so you can see how much thought and effort goes in.
Paul really set us at ease at the rehearsal and was funny to boot! He had thought of some lovely words to say as we were both not happy to write our own - pressure!
The day itself went without a hitch and we so sad to leave the day after.
The flowers that Magda arranged were amazing, so bright and beautiful and nothing like what we could get in the UK.
Overall we were so impressed and would highly recommend Coconut Cove Resort and Marina for a destination wedding, or even just a relaxing and special break away. Our children loved the our time here and were made to feel special as well as us. All of our guests loved the resort and the wedding itself and we've had so many lovely comments on the pictures.
A special mention must be made for Patty who was such a lovely lady she helped us from start to finish and is a real asset to the fabulous team at Coconut Cove.
A last mention is the food and wedding cake, truly amazing food loved by all especially the lobster and the BBQ island pig!!
We loved it here and cant recommend it highly enough!!! Thank you so much were sure to be back xxx
