With 22 years of experience there isn’t anything that will ruffle Ms. Beverly King’s feathers. She is Jolly Beach Resort’s wedding coordinator, and from intimate ceremonies on the beach to lavish family affairs, she has seen it all and survived it all – with grace and nerves of steel.
The largest wedding Ms. King has organized consisted of 200 people. “No problem,” she said. “It was all coordinated via email and went off without a hitch.”
So we asked her, “C’mon Ms. King. Every wedding has drama. Tell us some of the dramas you’ve survived!” Ms. King chuckled, and kept her lips zipped. But, as a master of making bride’s wedding fantasies come true, she did share with us a few stories – special ways she has been able to accommodate specific requests.
Once Upon a Time…
There was once a lovely bride who lived in a town with no palm trees, and, as such, desperately wanted a palm tree in her photos when she got married in Antigua. “I approached one of the resort’s gardeners,” said Ms. King, “and enquired whether there was a palm tree that could be relocated.” The gardener found and relocated a newly planted palm tree – and voila! Happy bride.
In another wedding, the bride had an inspiration picture from a wedding that had taken place in Mexico. Ms. King’s response? “No problem – I aim to please.” As she told us, “I love my job. There’s nothing more romantic than planning a wedding!”
