Weddings in Mexico and The Caribbean

SARAH PEASE Based in New York City, Sarah Pease of Brilliant Event Planning has been designing weddings in Mexico and the Caribbean since 2008.

Specialty ➸ Clients who want a New York-caliber wedding but transported to a destination. Passion ➸ “I love designing an immersive multiday experience that will envelope guests from the moment they touch down at the destination until they return home.”

Behind the Scenes ➸ “Banyan Tree Mayakoba in the Riviera Maya provided the ideal backdrop for this celebration. Instead of a more traditional crystal chandelier, I chose a tin-star chandelier for each palapa as a subtle nod to the Mexican setting.”

The fourth man, however, was unable to get out before the boat was carried away, and feared that he would drown. Fortunately however, a huge wave carried the boat above and close to the stern of the steamer, and at that moment the poor fellow sprang for his life. The steamer meanwhile was rapidly sinking and the four men still aboard were enabled with little difficulty to leap from the rail of the vessel to the rocks, and in this way saved their lives. About 20 minutes after all had safely landed on the rocks, the steamer swung round and tumbled to the side two or three times by the force of the tide and then went down in deep water, the crew remained on the rocks all night without food and exposed to the weather. At low water they made their way to the lighthouse. The seamen went on to tell the reporter of their home town newspaper how a sinking smack had been ignored by the lighthouse keepers and they complained bitterly about Seahouses lifeboat not coming to their rescue. The account of the Ilala makes mention of her grounding on the Swadman Reef’ which I presume to mean the Swedman Rocks, some 500 metres west of the Megstone. The Swedman Rocks are about 2Vi miles NNW of Seahouses so if the ship was lit up, it would have been clearly visible from the harbour there. If it was the Swedman, then the ship must have drifted almost three miles east and out to sea after the crew cut the anchors away, missing the Megstone’s surrounding reefs, Oxscar and North Wamses, before being swept through the very shallow water in Crayford’s Gut and hitting the Longstone. This seems incredible with a strong southwesterly wind blowing.
