Isle I Do: Bruce and Michelle
Colours of bright pink and beige filled the St. John's Parish Church last month as Canadians Michelle Davidson and Bruce Thieaudeau exchanged wedding vows.
The lovebirds from Ottawa pledged their eternal love to each other before more than 30 guests – family and friends – who flew in for the 4 p.m. event.
Michelle and Bruce, who have known each other for 20 years, are both passenger agents with Air Canada. She was on her fourth visit to the island, while he was on his second.
Michelle said she chose Barbados because of its beauty and friendly, hospitable people. "I've always felt safe here and Barbadians are easy going, welcoming and friendly," she says.
She was given away during the double-ring ceremony by her dad John Davidson and son Corbin Gale, while Bruce's two sons Corey and Bradley performed the roles of best man. Michelle's daughter Jasmine Gale was the maid of honour, while Amelia Garvey was the bridesmaid.
Among those who arrived from Canada were Bruce's mother Eileen, his sister Sheila Unrau and his brother-in-law Garnet.
Michelle's niece Amelia, her brother Paul, her sisters Suzanne Davidson and Louise Piche, and their husbands Gerry Garvey and Serge Piche also came specially for the wedding. Former High Commissioner to Canada Glyne Murray and his wife Lynette were also among the specially invited guests.
A reception for the newlyweds followed at Maxor Vacation Services, Strathclyde, St. Michael, where guests danced their way into the night. The Thieaudeaus, who were guests of Bougainvillea Beach Resort, also honeymooned in Barbados. They spent 12 days on the island.
