Fay & Tom on Grand Bahama Island

Couple: Fay & Tom

UK couple Fay and Tom have a personal connection to the Bahamas, particularly Grand Bahama Island. Their dream was to marry on Grand Bahama Island. As a young girl, Fay traveled to the island to accompany her father who was receiving cancer treatment. The Bahamas has always held a special place in the family’s heart, so it seemed a natural fit for their wedding.

Post Dorian Bahamas

The couple and their guests went through a lot to make the wedding plans a reality. Many people were wary of traveling to Grand Bahama post-Hurricane Dorian. Flights and hotels were suddenly canceled, so everyone scrambled to catch a ferry from Ft. Lauderdale to Grand Bahama and find alternate accommodations.

Alfred Anderson was entrusted by the couple to capture their special day. We love working with Alfred! In addition to being supremely talented, he’s also incredibly easy to work with. See here, here and here for more of Alfred’s work.
