Meagan Duhamel & Bruno Marcotte’s Intimate Beach Wedding on Bermuda by Rowell Photography

I’ve got something quite lovely for you today . . . they very low key wedding of a very high profile couple.  World champion figure skater Meagan Duhamel and her renowned coach Bruno Marcotte, recently married in a tiny secluded cove on the island of Bermuda in front of just 23 guests.  As someone who spends her life in the spotlight (you may have spotted her claiming a silver medal at the Sochi Winter Olympics?), Meagan was keen to keep her wedding as simple, relaxed and intimate as possible.  So in true island style, the bride went barefoot and the groom wore Bermuda shorts!  The pair were married in a laid back beach ceremony as their guests watched on, and close friends Erika and Ryan of Rowell Photography documented the proceedings.  The group then made their way back to The Reefs Resort for a private dinner overlooking the incredibly blue Atlantic Ocean, and raised their glasses to Meagan and Bruno as the sun went down.  It was a simple, meaningful, beautiful affair.  As the saying goes . . .

 

It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.

From the Photographers, Erika & Ryan of Rowell Photography: On a Friday in June, I met Meagan at The Reefs Resort & Club in Bermuda to start the day. Ryan joined Bruno and his entire family at the Fairmont Southampton. Surrounded by 23 of their closest friends and family which included Meagan’s figure skating partner Eric Radford, and friends who flew all the way from Saudi Arabia, Bruno & Meagan were married in front of a perfect turquoise ocean background, on a pink sand beach at Stonehole Bay, Warwick Parish Bermuda. The bride wore a custom made wedding gown, and groom wore the oh so traditional Bermuda shorts. 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. Which they all learned to play just for the wedding day. After the ceremony and family portraits on the beach, in true Bermudian style, the newlyweds rode by scooter to their reception at The Reefs. Dinner was a blend of local fair and a custom vegan dishes made just for Meagan, and a vegan wedding cake for everyone which was so delicious.  We were so honoured to be invited as guests to this very small intimate Bermuda wedding.  Congratulations Meagan & Bruno!!
