Stonehole Bay was the picture-perfect scene for the wedding of two international stars of the figure skating world.

Canadian world champion Meagan Duhamel and her long-term partner and coach, Bruno Marcotte, tied the knot in Bermuda last Friday.

The couple exchanged vows on the South Shore beach before Ms Duhamel jumped on a moped for the reception that took place at The Reefs.

Ms Duhamel is the 2015 world champion and a two-times world bronze medal-winner. She is also the four-times Canadian national champion. Marcotte coached Duhamel and Eric Radford to the world pairs title in Shanghai in March.

The destination wedding, which was organised by local firm Bermuda Event Solutions, was big news in her home country as well as the figure skating world.

“We wanted to keep things as small and personal as possible,” Duhamel told Ice Network a few days before the big day.

“We have 24 guests, just our immediate family. I knew if I did a wedding in my hometown, in Montreal, it would be big. I never dreamed of having a big wedding. By going away, it was easy to keep it small and personal.”

The wedding took place in front of a small group of friends and family that included Radford, Duhamel’s pairs partner, and coaches Richard Gauthier and Nick Young. A special vegan lemon cake was prepared by local pastry firm Cake Boutique to suit the figure skater’s dietary requirements.
