Happy couple weds in West Bay

Newlyweds Priscilla Habib of North West Point, West Bay, and Clem Scott of West End, Cayman Brac, with their daughter Kaelyn.

After almost six years together, Priscilla Habib and Clem Scott tied the knot last month in West Bay.

The couple were married by Joy Basdeo before 100 invited guests on July 2 at the West Bay Wesleyan Holiness Church.

Priscilla and Clem met in Cayman Brac about six years ago when Priscilla was on a girls’ weekend trip to the Sister Island. Priscilla of North West Point, West Bay, and Clem of West End, Cayman Brac, were introduced by a mutual friend.

The couple got engaged at midnight of New Year’s Eve 2015, at Camana Bay.

According to Clem, an air traffic controller, he waited five years to propose because of his career obligations in the Brac.

“[I] absolutely did not see the proposal coming,” said Priscilla, a compliance manager, “but was extremely surprised and emotional as my family and his family were there.”

Priscilla chose an Oleg Cassini gown for her walk down the aisle, after she fell in love with the dress online.

“And it fit perfectly when I went to Miami to try it on,” she said.

With a bouquet of orchids, roses and hydrangeas in hand, she was escorted down the aisle and given away by her father Elias.

She said her favorite part of her Sarah Parker-planned wedding was “when my dad walked me down the aisle towards my future husband in front of all our family and friends.

As for Clem, “The reception and being able to mingle and enjoy the evening with my wife and our guests,” was unforgettable.

The reception was held at Morgan’s at the Yacht Club. Among the guests were maid of honor Ada Bennett, best man Arturo Ramirez, and the newlyweds’ 2-year-old daughter and flower girl, Kaelyn.

The couple has delayed their honeymoon until next year and plan to go to Hawaii.

“It was coincidental,” said Priscilla.

“When we started dating, we asked each other where we would want to go on a honeymoon if we ever got married and the both of us said Hawaii.”
