Bahamas 16 Islands Wedding Invitation, Wedding No 10: Louise and Steven’s Golden Grove Romance

On the little known Island of Acklins, Louise Murfin and Steven Bennett of Huddersfield said their vows while the sun beamed down on a remote Golden Grove Beach. They had dreamed of a tropical wedding on a secluded beach, and lucky for them this dream became a reality upon winning the Bahamas 16 Islands Wedding Invitation. When they had heard the great news of their victory, Louise said, “We are looking forward to a magical day in a fairytale place with the people that we love”.
Louise, a nurse and Steven, a hydraulics manager, met online back in 2006 after they both joined a dating website. Their first date was to the seaside at Cleethorpes, a year later he proposed on their first anniversary on the beach at Loch Ness in Scotland, so it is very fitting that they had their wedding ceremony on a beach earlier this year! 
Acklins is a tiny island, covering 238 square km and only 6 km across at its widest point. But with the delightful Bight of Acklins lagoon at its heart, a population of only 400 and fabulous beaches full of spectacular rock formations; it’s very big on charm. Peace,seclusion and getting back to nature are prominent attributes of this Island. 

Louise and Steven and their two guests stayed at the pretty little property Ivel’s, on Acklins.
Congratulations to the happy couple, may they have many years of marital bliss to come!
Tomorrow we will join Felicity Carpenter and Andrew Webb of Amesbury,Salisbury as they say “I do” at their “Seashell Beauty” Wedding on Crooked Island.

    Acklins, one of the gems in the out islands of the Bahamas that makes the destination wedding experience a breathe taking event for everyone.
    I am happy this lovely couple got the opportunity to experience it and now the world will know about Acklins!
