ANGIE & GEORGE | Elizabeth, New Jersey
Dear Allister and Carmen,
I'm not sure where to start. Do I trust Allister & Carmen? I'm 6 months pregnant and would consider naming my son after Allister if we had not already chose the name Ryan! Our day was perfect. From the lovely wedding table adorned with cherub angels and our special Waterford toasting glasses, to the doves we released form the edge of the cliff overlooking the aqua coloured waters of Bermuda, your care and professionalism was peppered throughout our wedding day. As we traversed the cliffs from the beautiful beach cove and rode away in our horse and carriage through the narrow winding roadways, we reflected on how blessed we were for such day. A day we can cherish forever with the beautiful black and white photographs proudly displayed on our fireplace mantle and attributed to your wonderful artistic abilities!
In the future if we can provide a recommendation to any of your prospective brides and grooms, it would be our honor to tell our tale of triumph, professionalism and friendship!
With gratitude and in friendship,
George and Angie Devanney

Dear Carmen and Allister Simmons:
This is more than the regular thank you letter. The wedding was phenomenal! We expected a picture perfect wedding in Bermuda and what we got exceeded our expectations. Your predictions to us over the months leading up to the wedding were incredibly precise. Besides the perfect weather (in mid-November), your planning and the wonderful arrangements made the once in a lifetime experience memorable and entirely stress-free. Our single friends in attendance gave perhaps the best compliment wishing they could find a wedding coordinator with Allister's experience and ability to put everyone at ease.
Astwood Park is an incredibly beautiful site for a wedding, beautiful beyond belief. With the setting sun shimmering off the bluest blue of the Atlantic in the background, the wedding pictures captured some of the most treasured moments of our lives.
Diana Vellos, Esq. and Wole Coker, Esq.
Carmen and Allister,
We wanted to let you know how happy you have made us and say "Thank You" from the bottom of our hearts. Everything was perfect. I will remember...water-beautiful blue water, wonderful people, fabulous food, and of course two beautiful new friends. It's funny, people ask "do you feel let down, now that all the months of planning are done?" To which my quick answer is "hell no!", although I do miss our frequent emails, the reassuring words you offered and all the anticipation. As the days pass I am constantly reminded by our guests, what a freat time they had and know I will return to Bermuda.
Basically, thank you, thank you, thank you, you made our wedding simply unforgettable.
VERONICA & RoY
To Allister and the staff at The Bridal Suite,
Roy and I would like to take this time to thank you for your guidance, patience and understanding during the preparation of our wedding. We both had great expectations of how it was going to be but you and your staff surpassed our every dream and turned our wedding into the fairytale of a lifetime. The outdoor wedding over a cliff-top was a wonderful choice, the Moongate set in the perfect position overlooking the South Shore, the longtails flying overhead, the champagne cocktails after the ceremony and not to forget the wonderful photos which were published in the Bermudian magazine.
All of the fine details and special touches you added made our day just that little more special. Indeed the service we received was top notch. We would recommend your services to everyone. You are indeed the best in your profession.
Roy and Veronica Childs

Two years ago, when I was searching for a wedding consultant, The Bridal Suite was the first to respond and the most organized response I received.
After reading through the material, I contact The Bridal Suite with a hundred questions. They were always pleasant, patient and gave good advice and answers to our questions. It is very hard to plan a wedding, especially in another country. It was hard for me to trust someone else to plan my whole wedding without knowing them or seeing other weddings, however all the details were perfect. The boquet, the cake, Astwood Park and the horse and carriage ride were exactly what I had ordered. To any nervous bride or groom, rest assured, The Bridal Suite is a very professional company who are one step ahead of you all the time.
Our wedding was beautiful and very romantic. Astwood Park was so much more beautiful than we ever imagined.
Again, thanks to Allister, Carmen and Kelly and the rest of The Bridal Suite staff for making our wedding like a fairy tale.

CHRISTINE & GLENN | ATKINSON, NEW HAMPSHIRE
When Glenn & I began to make our wedding plans we were both at a point in our lives that we knew exactly what we wanted. An intimate gathering with those closest to us. Something unique and special - not your typical wedding. The problem was we didn't know how or where to begin.
Glenn & I, both being perfectionists and hands on in what we do - had many concerns about planning our dream wedding 1,200 miles away from home. Not only did we have concerns about the wedding but also we were concerned about the travel and well being of our 35 guests ranging in ages from 6 to 80 years old. Needless to say we were a bit overwhelmed but that was short-lived. Allister, from our first conversation you immediately took charge. You were always just a phone call away. Your reassurance and attention to detail kept us at ease throughout our months of planning. Your gentle mannerism, promptness and true professionalism quickly eliminated any concerns and apprehension that we ever had. You made what we thought would be a stressful experience into an incredible one! We never could have dreamed how perfect this day would be! Everything fell into place - the flowers, the ceremony at Astwood Park, the horse drawn carriage, we were living a fairytale. Words cannot describe how we felt on that day. You created it all - like an artist beautiful portrait.
We know now that we had the easiest job to do and you had all the challenges. Yet you never let us feel anything but true elation. Our family and friends were completely awestruck! Allister, we could go on and on about our heartfelt gratitude. You, Carmen and your staff obviously take pride in what you do everyday. You made us feel like we were the only people to ever have this experience and we are sure you will be doing this for many years to come. You made our dreams come true and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Please continue your wonderful work and be proud of what you do.
Glenn & Chritine Saba
QUOTE | BRIDES MAGAZINE 2000
"If The Bridal Suite's Allister Simmons can haul a piano to the top of a cliff, you know he can do pretty much anything and this veteran of countless ceremonies knows every romantic corner of the isle. He prides himself in making everyone's wedding fantasies come true - whether for a feisty 79 year old bride scrambling down a cliff's craggy steps or a young groom in a wheelchair dancing the night away, under the stars."
