Former customer service manager at Air Jamaica, Sharon Binns, tied the knot with her building contractor beau, Ravic Binns, in an intimate ceremony witnessed by family and close friends at Beaches Turks and Caicos recently.

Using the 'cord of three strands', which bear the colours gold, purple and white, the couple strengthened their resolve with the words, "Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not easily broken" - Ecclesiastes 4:12.

The gold strand represents God at the centre; purple for the groom and white for the bride. As each receives Jesus Christ as personal saviour and Lord, they are cleansed through Christ.

"This was a very important aspect of our wedding, inviting the presence of our Lord and Saviour," the new bride told Outlook.
