Your Marriage officer ~ Pepsi Demacque-Crockett

Pepsi’s family hail from the small fishing village of Canaries on the West Coast of St Lucia, although she was born in London after her parents emigrated there in the 1950’s. For many years Pepsi worked as a performer and actress in the music and entertainment industry. During which time she always dreamed of living an island life with a family business to attend to.  Jus’ Sail is the embodiment of that dream and becoming a marriage officer has been on the cards for a number of years as she just loves the romance of two people committing to spend their lives together…

Pepsi’s flair for presentation, care for every guest and consideration to ensuring the very best quality experience, makes her the perfect celebrant to officiate your ceremony.
