We are thrilled to share this island wedding that was brought to us from Erika of Rowell Photography. When a long-term friend gets married, you are on board to help. When that friend is Meagan Duhamel, champion figure skater who is having a destination wedding, you hop on the next plane out and that is exactly what Rowell Photography did.
Meagan has become accustomed to being showcased in front of large crowds having skated in front of an Olympic audience in Sochi and then to a world championship figure skating title in Shanghai. But when it came to her wedding to coach Bruno Marcotte, she wanted to keep things very quiet and simple.
Bruno & Meagan were married in front of a perfect turquoise ocean background, on a pink sand beach at Stonehole Bay, Warwick Parish Bermuda at a very small ceremony at The Reef Resort & Club. Just 24 guests were invited, including the bride’s on-ice partner, Eric Radford. During the ceremony, the groom, along with a friends and fellow coaches Richard Gauthier and Mervin Tran played the couples weddings song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole on ukuleles!
The barefooted bride wore an off-white custom made gown created by her skating dressmaker Mrs. Cordeiro. The Groom’s attire included pieces from Holt Renfrew, Simons and, of course, traditional Bermuda shorts!
The couple did not select anyone to stand for them, instead opting to stand alone with a minister because they believed it was a private moment to spend together. After the ceremony, an ocean view reception dinner included a custom vegan menu for the bride’s conscientious diet.
