The love story of Shane and Keshtina began six years ago. As fate would have it, they were both working at Clock Tower Plaza in Half-Way-Tree in 2006. The two finally met when Shane spotted Keshtina as she stepped into the Clock Tower Pharmacy, where he was working at the time, and was awestruck by her beauty. He finally mustered up the courage to speak to her. Their relationship developed, leading Shane to eventually propose.

The Wedding...

...took place on June 3, 2012, which coincidentally was Shane's birthday, at the Crystal Palace — a beautifully draped white tent with elegant décor by Exquisite Occasions — by the poolside of the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel. The sounds of A Whole New World by Regina Belle and Peabo Bryson heralded the arrival of the large bridal party, who were styled in floor-length, slate-grey dresses sourced from David's Bridal. They were escorted by groomsmen in smart black and grey suits courtesy of Beautiful Brides and Mr Tux.

The nervous bridegroom eagerly awaited the arrival of his beautiful bride, who made her way towards the entrance of the tent a mere three minutes late. Keshtina, who was dressed in a white sequinned corseted gown, clutched a bouquet of white roses and Swarovski crystals as she was escorted up the aisle by her father Wayne Campbell to My Endless Love by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie. Venice Allen, Denise Allen and Shevanie Dyer of La Femme Jolie Salon had placed her hair in a chic updo while Jennifer Samuda of Jencare Skin Farm had beautifully applied her make-up.

The ceremony was officiated by Reverend Andrew Norman and Mary Botts — who explained the importance of the meaningful journey they were about to take together. As the couple began exchanging their vows, their parents shed tears of joy at the sentimental moment their children were sharing for all to see. The couple also engaged in the lighting of the unity candle, which symbolises the joining of the couple's mind and body for eternity. While they signed their marriage register, Kevin Lawrence serenaded the guests with renditions of Write Your Name (Across my Heart) by Kenny Rogers and One in a Million You by Larry Graham. The two then sealed their union with a kiss and exited the Crystal Palace as husband and wife.

The Reception...

...followed at the Pavilion of the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel. The room was completely transformed for the occasion with chandeliers and black and white accents courtesy of Exquisite Occasions. To the surprise of the guests, the bridal party made their grand entrance by dancing to the sounds of Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO. The newly-weds shared their first dance to This I Swear by Nick Lachey and their reception came to a close when they cut their decadent five-tier fruit cake by Selena Wong. The couple later honeymooned at the Atlantis, Bahamas for three nights, then at RIU Montego Bay for two nights.
