New Yorkers Christiano and Marian Buono took the Cayman Islands’ pirate heritage to heart at their five-year vow renewal at Smith Cove during Pirates Week.

The couple, along with their infant son Piero and with their party of friends and family in attendance, took part in the ceremony on Nov. 17 in full pirate regalia. Officiant Joy Basdeo and her assistant also suited up for the occasion.

“It was a very international group that took part in the ceremony, all were having a great time, and we took them to My Bar at Sunset House afterward to keep the festivities going,” said Ms. Basdeo.

“The Buonos said they’d definitely be back again, the trip was so worth it.”

  1. Just look , could this couple had such a beautiful experience , if the condo was alowed to be built ?
    No because all the condo ownerds would have had Smith Cove occupied . This just shows us that we should have our public access to the beaches for the Citizens and Visitors if we want to stay in the Tourism market , this couple could not have had this experience at their hotel on 7 mile beach.
