The good fortune made my second trip to Barbados overlaps with the annual grand carnival; Cropover. I was already excited to cover Soukeina and Steven’s wedding but I have to admit that the carnival was an additional treat. Barbados is such a beautiful island that have had so many influences in its history. The British and Spanish heritages combined with the African descent makes the culture very strong and alive. While Soukeina is from the French overseas region of Guadeloupe (Barbados’ neighbors), Steven grew up on the island. We ended up in a Rum distillery for the couple session. How fun!
