Wedding Planning with Streamlined Processes


Our clientele comprises busy couples seeking an
unforgettable wedding celebration. They place great importance on collaborating
with a reliable partner to provide expert guidance on every aspect of their Barbados Wedding. 
Our expertise lies in creating an amazing local vendor team and transparent communication to offer our clients the confidence needed to plan a destination wedding from outside of Barbados.


We dreamed of a beach wedding in Barbados. Despite all the obstacles that got in our way, Leigh succeeded in organizing a great wedding with such beautiful decor that got our “WOW!” and was greatly appreciated by our guests. Without Leigh, we wouldn’t have had the wonderful wedding that we got.

My husband and I live in NY but we had our destination wedding in Barbados since most of my family lives there. Due to covid we had a few postponements and things felt shaky for a while. Someone recommended Leigh to me for the decor & she was amazing! When we had our consultation I decided to hire her as our wedding planner on the spot. Her professionalism, ability to find the best deals, and amazing decor made our day so special.

Leigh was an absolute pleasure to work with during preparing for my wedding! From the first day I emailed her with my questions until the day we I said I do. I found she was very reliable, easy going, dedicated to her job and an absolute boss at making visions a reality.
I would recommend her to anyone. I had no worries on my big day. Everything was absolutely stunning. It ran smoothly. Everyone commented on how good everything turned out to be. The decor was amazing..
Leigh is an absolute pleasure
