To all my brides and grooms... Thank you so much for letting me assist you on one of the most special and important days of your lives... I want this site to become a part of all the couples whom I was lucky enough to meet... Here are some of your comments... Thank you again - for making what I do - what I LOVE to do everyday!

Heather!

 

"I am just beginning the planning for my wedding in the British Virgin Islands and WOW Heather you know your stuff! I am so relaxed about it now - I can't wait for my dream destination wedding to happen! Thank you so much for everything so far. See you in June!"

Shannon - 2017

"My husband and I recently got married at Surfsong in Beef Island, Tortola. I initially contacted Heather at BVI Weddings several months ago to inquire about her coordinating our wedding. She responded immediately and I knew we were in good hands. Heather was in contact with us regularly to let us know of the requirements of getting married in the BVI (it's easy) and I felt so much more comfortable knowing that an experienced professional was taking care of all the details. Heather met us the day after we arrived in Tortola and helped us get our marriage license and do all the necessary paperwork. It was a snap, and took all of ten minutes because Heather had done everything in advance! My husband and I also had some special requests for the wording of the ceremony - Heather contacted our officiant for us to make sure the changes would be OK and even gave him a copy of our "version" of the ceremony so we didn't have to! On the wedding day, Heather's assistant Susan was there to coordinate and make sure everything happened seamlessly - which it did. Heather and Susan were friendly, warm, professional, and did a fabulous job to make our wedding special. I did not worry about a thing and they made sure of it! I would highly recommend Heather and BVI Weddings to anyone considering getting married in the BVI."

Nora - Married February 2010

"Heather is incredible! I felt as if I had an instant friend as soon as we met. She arranged for everything, and suggested things I had not thought of. I didn't have to worry about a thing, because she took care of everything! She'll go the extra mile to make sure your special day is truly spectacular, whatever setting or feel you're looking for."

Patti - Married November 2005

"Ken and I want to thank you for making our wedding day perfect. Everything came together so well and we wouldn't change a thing. The location was beautiful, the band was so much fun (thank you for getting this lined up, it really made the event!!!), the food and the cake were delicious, the photographer was fantastic and the overall set up couldn't have been better. We all had a great time and we have you to thank for making everything run so smoothly. We plan on coming back for our one year anniversary and would love to meet you for a cocktail to celebrate.

It was a pleasure meeting you and working with you. Thank you again for everything!!!"


Anne & Ken - Married November 2005

"Thank you for everything that you did to make our wedding completely perfect. You were able to take our ideas and vision about our perfect day and turn it into reality. Your knowledge of all the local resources and people was invaluable, and the time you spent with us finalizing details, helped bring everything together. We couldn't have done it without you!"

Fondly, Liz & Robby

"Heather went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding was the day of our dreams. She was a true asset in planning as she was able to be my eyes and ears on the island, as I was planning from a distance. Most importantly, she made sure that all of the details were taken care of as well as dealing with last minute problems so that I could enjoy a stress free wedding day. Because of Heather we truly had a perfect day and I couldn't have begun to do it without her. She acted as more than a planner, she acted as a friend." THANK YOU again dear Heather!!!!!!"

Jen :)

"Our wedding day on Guana was the most perfect day imaginable - there was absolutely no stress, no drama, just exactly what we wanted. The paperwork and background information was all dealt with quickly by you, with the minimal amount of fuss in a calm, friendly, reassuring way. I was amazed that the bouquet matched my requirements exactly - it looked like it had been handpicked to match the colours I wanted - which is quite impressive via email! The service was really lovely and the registrar and photographer also contributed to making the day fabulous - down to you for making all the arrangements exactly as we wanted!

A huge thank you. I am very very sure that I will never use your services again - however I am very very happy to recommend them to anyone else considering tying the knot in the BVI! Thanks again Heather - you really helped to make the day beyond expectations."

Kate & Nick

"Eric and I were married on Tortola in the BVI's in April 2005. After just one weekend trip to Tortola ten months before our wedding, I don't think either of us knew it might turn out as perfectly as it did. We could not have hoped for anything more. At our first meeting, Heather had brought along Jim, the photographer as well as Di, the caterer. Very aware of our limited time on the island and the importance of our pending big day, this to us was the first sign that all was going to be just perfect. First I must say, as a Virgo and a definite Type A, part of me was petrified by planning a wedding from a thousand miles away and not having complete control of everything at all times. On the other hand, having made enough trips to the Caribbean and also having lived in the islands for almost a year, we told ourselves that this was going to be the most perfect day of our lives, no matter what happened. I think we both felt that we may have to sacrifice a little in order to be married in paradise. We both felt that nothing was ever sacrificed in getting married on the beach in the Caribbean.

Here's why we would use Heather all over again:

1) She knows the islands, having grown up in St. Thomas and having lived on Tortola for almost 20 years. She knows everyone on the island, and as a result, can do just about anything. Whether it was suggesting a taxi service to transport guests between the beach and the reception, floral designers, a photographer, or that ultimate location. She knows all the nooks and crannies on the island and within the larger BVIs. Because of all this knowledge, it seems nothing is an impossibility with Heather.

2) She is honest. She will not suggest someone just because she knows them, but instead because she knows that they are good and most importantly, reliable!

3) She is respected by all she works with. This is part of why she gets things done. People know she has a good business going, and that the popularity of destination weddings is fast growing. By never disappointing Heather, they will be called upon again. This is important to people Heather rely on repeatedly, and they do not want to disappoint her.

4) It's all in the personal touch. Nowadays, you can go anywhere in the world, be hooked up with a wedding planner at a resort, show up with no input into set-up, choice of minister, music, food, or location. With Heather, she wants you to be happy. You are not just another couple. She truly is engaged, and wants your wedding to be a success and unforgettable for all the right reasons.

5) She is always in control. She does not get flustered, rude, or bossy. This is a great trait to have, and an essential attribute to a wedding planner.

6) She is not afraid to roll up her sleeves and help out. We had 60 guests for our wedding, and each received personal attention. Whether it was Heather helping them beforehand to find accommodation on-island, or helping serve dinner at our reception. She is just always on-the-go, and knows exactly what needs to be done. The day before the wedding Heather met us in town, went with us to get our license, and left us off at the church for our meeting with the minister. Even the legal matters that had to be handled, were fun to do with Heather.

7) She keeps pressure off the bride. She will make decisions as far as possible, and where she thinks things may be much different than what was originally discussed, she will very nicely present it to the bride-to-be, or the groom-to-be, depending upon how involved the latter is in the preparation.

8) She becomes a part of the family. We still exchange emails today, almost a year after our wedding.

9) She is always available. After we returned to Maryland after our planning trip, all correspondence was done through email. Responses from Heather were always timely. It was just so reassuring to know that everything was under control.

10) She is good, really, really good at what she does! It amazes me that Heather is as successful as she is doing it all by herself. Our hats are off to Heather, and we would have no hesitations to refer anyone to her. She is the best!!! We have had friends marry all over the world, and everyone at the wedding was totally impressed and loved her."
