Tredudwell Manor wedding with heartfelt speeches and Caribbean food
This was very much a DIY wedding. We didn’t have a wedding planner, so we did all the planning and logistics with our suppliers. Food is very important at any function, but especially your wedding. Trust us! It’s the thing amongst others that people will remember, especially at Caribbean weddings - our caterers were brilliant, the food was amazing, and we had enough to take home too!

Heartwarming speeches at Caribbean wedding
Caribbean weddings bring a lot of zest and cultural flair to a celebration. From the moment you enter the big day, you'll be swept away by a fusion of infectious energy. Caribbean weddings are a feast for the senses - and Imani & Simeon's wedding at Tredudwell Manor was no different. The couple both have Caribbean backgrounds and wanted to bring this to the forefront. This included old-school RnB and Caribbean vibes through their wedding music. As well as traditional Caribbean cooking, and family having travelled all the way. And it wasn't just the cultural elements that made it so special. The wedding speeches centred around the importance of women, their roles in life, their nurturing and loving auras, and so much more. It's not every day we hear about weddings where the entirety of the bar staff is reduced to tears! We also loved the sage grey and white decor, the outdoor wedding games, and... Oh, who are we kidding? We loved every. Single. Element.
This wedding was a wonderful celebration of love, culture, and women. What more could you want?
Our favourite moment is the (biodegradable) confetti shot with all our guests, shortly after we said I do! This moment was captured by our photographer and videographer and everyone looks so happy to be celebrating in our union. It was a great moment to capture and kick off an afternoon/evening of celebrations with the DJ playing music in the background.
