Double the vows
IT WAS A DOUBLE DELIGHT for George Agard to walk both his daughters down the aisle in separate weddings taking place in Barbados recently.
Daughter Arlean Gall, a former international model and now director of her own downtown New York designer showroom, flew home to Barbados for her marriage to Trevor Thornhill at Golden Grove Great House in St George on August 2.
Given Arlean’s experience strutting catwalks around the world, the wedding was a fashionable affair, with the tall, elegant bride setting the trend in an understated sleeveless gown with a jewel-bordered sweetheart neckline and pillbox-style headpiece to which was attached a ruched white net veil falling over the bride’s face.
The wedding was a black-tie affair attended by guests from Barbados, the United States and Canada.
Pastor Elector Pearson conducted the nuptials and Grace Agard-Merritt attended her sister as matron of honour.
Two days later, another of George Agard’s daughters, Patricia Margot Howell, was escorted by her father to meet her dashing groom waiting at the end of the aisle in the idyllic outdoor setting on the fringes of the white sand beach at the Hilton hotel.
Patricia exchanged vows with retired United States Navy chief petty officer Mark Cox in a ceremony conducted by Rev. Sir Wesley Hall.
