Capture Your Dream Wedding in Paradise


Thank You So Much For Stopping By

Here at Irie Matrimony, we pride ourselves in making each wedding unique to the couple planning. We put an effort into each wedding that we would our own weddings. Irie is a word derived from Jamaica, which roughly translates to “alright.” It means that you are content and happy with life and your surroundings. You’ll often find people in the Caribbean saying “Everything Irie!” to one another. This is exactly how I feel when doing what I love best—planning weddings. I’m excited about the possibility of planning your St. Thomas wedding.

I’m a 30-something originally a Georgia girl, turned Island girl. I simply love planning weddings in the Caribbean. The beautiful people make for the perfect medium for the perfect canvas, the gorgeous surroundings of the Tropics.
