Pierre Carr Exclusive Tropical Weddings

UK Weddings with a Caribbean Twist from Pierre Carr

Pierre Carr Exclusive Tropical Weddings

With the wedding fair season in full swing couples are looking for the perfect place to say ‘I do’. The Caribbean is an ideal location, but funds sometimes hold couples back from a dream destination wedding, but that doesn’t mean the essence and vibrancy of the Caribbean can’t come to them.

On October 14th 2010, Caribbean wedding specialists, Pierre Carr, Exclusive Tropical Weddings launched a new design service for couples who want to recreate all or some of the elements of the Caribbean for their wedding or special event. From food to floral arrangements, Pierre Carr’s founder, Michelle Pierre-Carr is looking to bring some Caribbean spice to London weddings.

Already running a destination wedding planning service to the Caribbean, Michelle Pierre-Carr realised the significance of offering UK couples a Caribbean style wedding at home.

“Getting married abroad is a dream, but many people are put off by family members and loved ones who can’t afford to make the journey. So I felt it was important to create something magical for those who really wanted to use our services as well as our clients who opt for our signature destination weddings to the Caribbean. However the weather may not be as easy to recreate in the UK.”

Details on the new service and special offer available in the Pierre-Carr, Exclusive Tropical Weddings portfolio can be found at

Let’s Hear It For The Dads

I Am Staggered Head

Dads. They mend plugs with butter knives, keep half-empty tins of paint in the shed and always, always know where the batteries are kept. So when it came to advice about weddings, Staggered decided that we should go straight to our readers’ dads and see what pearls of wisdom they’d dispensed before their weddings. Turns out our readers’ dads enjoy quotes and clichés.

“He seems like a nice lad, he always has done, and I’m glad you’re marrying him. But remember, if needs be, I’ll bash his head in.” – Lucy

“Marriage is not always 50/50. Some days you will wake up and may have to give 90% and your spouse will give 10%. Other days you may wake up and give 25% and your husband will have to put in the 75%. I never thought of this before but it is so true.” – Roger

“Remember, she does want something for her birthday.” – Al

“At the height of planning my wedding, and when my grooms frustration reached its peak, my father took me to one side and said “You know all the times when you’ve imagined scoring an FA Cup winning goal at Wembley, or taking 5 wickets at Lords, or playing the closing set at Glastonbury, or whatever you imagine when your brain goes in to its screensaver mode… Well for every time you’ve imagined something like that which will never happen, she’s imagined this wedding day and that will – so be patient and cut her some slack – it’ll be worth it in the end”. He’s a genius, my father!” –  Jim

“Don’t cock it up.” – Alan

“The two cornerstones of a wonderful marriage are chocolate and compromise.” – Marie

“Live long and prosper.” – Alex (“Yes, he did quote Spock.”)

“You never suited a bachelor life.” – Andy

“Can we hurry this along if possible; the dog’s getting restless back in the car.” – Colin
