Wedding Planner

Sue Ricketts Ricketts & Associates Ltd., We have lived on Anguilla for nearly 30 years and developed and managed luxury hotels and villas on the island during our years here, including the five star hotel Malliouhana and Cap Juluca. We, together with our associates, have many years of wedding planning under our belts, having built the hotels from scratch. At one stage we had 83 weddings a year at Cap Juluca alone. We now work with our clients and plan their wedding according to their criteria, be it a small very private wedding on a remote beach, to a fully catered sit down experience in a villa or hotel. Our planners are here to take care of every little detail that a bride and groom will need for a destination wedding. We also offer renewal of vows and commitment ceremonies. We have villas all over the island to suit every size, taste and pocket book to make this a never forget experience of a lifetime. Tel 1-239-344-7810 Tel 1-264-497-6049
