In Shane and Laurie style, we really only planned the whole wedding and reception about 4 days before the big day!
For a long time, all we knew was that we wanted to get married in India, on the beach. Nothing fancy, just natural. India is so beautiful as it is, that we didn’t feel we needed to add anything more. Just friends and family and a big celebration of life!
We got that and so much more…
First we wish to Thank Walter and Jackie Fernandes – owners of Dreamcatchers Resort in Palolem Beach, South Goa. www.dreamcatcher.in They were the ones who organised the ceremony on the beach and the festivities at their resort. Everything from the tuk-tuks to the blue enfield, to beautiful flowers, cold drinks, tasty food, good service and gorgeous decor. It was ALL arranged by them. They gave us so much more than we even dreamed We will forever be grateful, for that most incredible day in our lives.
We also wish to extend a huge thank you to all the staff at Dreamcatchers – from the waitors, to the cleaning ladies, to the security guys and to reception. Their hard work did not go unnoticed and their always present smiles, were inspiring. They not only, made our wedding day happen so smoothly, but also ensured that staying there was the most enjoyable and relaxing holiday that we and our family and friends could have hoped for.
Next, we wish to Thank our friends and family for making the trip and daring to explore a country they might not have otherwise ventured. To Guy Neville and my sister, Debbie Wilson (Best Man and Maid of Honour), for playing such a big part in bringing such laughter and love to the whole holiday (not just the day) and for ensuring that the big day, was perfect Shane and Laurie style. Colin Ashton – Thank You for playing MC and ensuring everything went according to “schedule”
Big love and thanks to Tony van der Linde (Uncle Anto) for conducting the ceremony with such amazing words, they where truly heartfelt
We also met three wonderful people whilst there, who we invited to share our day with us. What a gift… Thank You Andy Quick (for playing us our song and for livening the dancing with your guitar). Note: Check out his band through facebook, called Land of the Giants… His lovely lady Kate Moss, who bought her energy and smiles and our Dreamcatchers neighbour Shivali, who covered our hut in flowers and hearts, the night before the wedding.
Having you all there to share that day with us, was so special. We are certainly blessed.
For my dress, I wish to Thank Augustine Choy – a private dress maker in Hong Kong. You got it perfect!! Thank You
My hair on the day was done by the gentleman of one of my best friends and bridesmaids. Michel Martin - you’re a star!! Him and his brother own a salon in Linksfield, Johannesburg - called Sandro Hairdressing
My good friend Nicole McWilliams, did our make-up. Thank You honey
The spa at Dreamcatchers is great and the lovely ladies pampered my mom and I with manicures and pedicures, the morning of the wedding.
Shane had his outfit and the funky, blue lungis for the boys, made by one of the local tailors in Patnem. What a good job and so fast! Thank You
Our local friend, Matthew and his wife Rina. Thank You for doing all the airport pick-ups and drop offs, safely bringing our guests to the venue. Also for arranging the scooters for everyone to explore with and get to the beach for the big day. You are both wonderful and we wish you happiness
We had our wedding party in Dreamcatcher in November 2015 and it was INCREDIBLE.
The whole of the wonderful Dreamcatcher family really pulled out all of the stops to make the venue look more beautiful than we could ever have imagined. The food was divine, the cocktails were exquisite, the attention to detail was extraordinary but most of all, the hospitality and hard work of all the staff was second to none. We are so grateful to Dreamcatcher for making our day so beautiful.
Lots of our friends and family, including elderly and people not familiar with travelling abroad, stayed in Dreamcatcher and although my Grandparents might have been a bit shocked at the basic accommodation when they arrived, everyone left with big smiles on their faces and planning their future return!
I would highly recommend Dreamcatcher, especially their restaurant, best porridge in Palolem (from a porridge enthusiast!!) The calamari and pakora are divine too.
Thank you Dreamcatcher, we will be back!
