The year: 1997. The place: London, England. The event: The auspicious occasion of the romantic entanglement of two bright young aspiring legal minds.
Thus, set on an international stage, was the start of a regional integration to be consecrated by marriage some seven years later. {{more}}
The groom, no stranger to the stage himself, none other than noteworthy barrister-at-law and solicitor Ronald Karlos Marks, is an accomplished dramatist to critical acclaim. His blushing bride, Vanessa Tamara Gibson, who too has accomplishments on stage, particularly in dance and more recently in theatre production, is a Trinidadian-born St. Lucian citizen who currently holds the post of acting deputy registrar of the High Court.
This match, made in legal and thespian heaven, was solemnised at the St. Joseph the Worker Church, Gros Islet, St. Lucia on July 31, 2004 in a jubilant ceremony scheduled for a 10 a.m. start.
The bride, in exercise of her age-old prerogative, arrived fashionably late in a white stretch limousine. The groom was never so happy to be upstaged. The ceremony progressed in a relaxed air with musical interludes.
The reception, held at the Sandals Grande, catered to some 287 guests with a healthy representation of family, friends and the legal fraternity, including Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
A buffet luncheon and dancing followed, bringing the festivities to an intoxicatingly pleasant close.
