Til Death Do Us Part – Cowgirl Glam in the Tropics – Belize Wedding – Trash the Dress

Trash the Dress Belize Wedding PhotographerPublic Health Warning! – This is a Trash the Dress blog like no other we have done.  We highly suggest that you make sure you’re snug in your saddle and ready for a romantic, playful, naughty and wild ride.   And now we shall begin.

Wedding Belize - Photographer Those of you familiar with Conch Creative’s wedding photography know that we specialise in Trash the Dress sessions. This is our chance to work with couples, collaborate and create beautiful pieces that they will treasure for years to come.  This cowgirl themed Trash the Dress started like most others.  Beautiful romantic poses in a tropical setting.

Trash the dress Belize Wedding Photographer - Conch CreativeA little bit of playful fun…

Wedding Photography Belize - Trash the Dress…and of course some sexy romping.

Wedding Photographer BelizeWe should have realised that something was up when we saw our cowgirl’s garter.  But nothing could have prepared us for the story we are about to share with you.

Trash The Dress Wedding Photography BelizeAfter sending the groom off to get some drinks, while we did some beautiful bridal portraits, our cowgirl bride told us in no uncertain terms that it was time for a little refreshment break.

Belize Wedding - Trash the Dress - wedding photographer

Always obliging we found a shady spot at the end of a dock.   Our cowgirl had brought along her own bottle and, politely, offered to share.  We explained that it’s important for photographers to stay in focus but that we’d hang around and take a few more photos while she waited for her groom.

Belize Wedding Photography - Belize Wedding Photographer Trash the DressFifteen minutes later, we knew that something memorable was about to happen and we weren’t about to stop shooting (by shooting we mean with a camera!) until the rodeo was over.

Belize Wedding Photographer - Belize Beach WeddingsThe groom returned with a couple of bottles of Belikin Beer and for a moment, we were lulled into a false sense of security, thinking everything had returned to normal.  How could we predict the drama that was to unfold?

Belize Wedding PhotographyAs the groom swept her up in his arms for a kiss, she was already plotting.

Belize Wedding Photographer - Trash the Dress in BelizeWe heard her whisper in his ear (she did whisper loudly) , ‘Now that we’re legal, you’re mine cowboy and don’t you forget it!’ and then she started marching him up the beach.

Trash the dress wedding photographer Belize weddingWe were stunned when she stopped suddenly and said ‘Turn around big boy and strip!’.  Conch Creative have never done a nude cowboy shoot before, but we were game for anything at this stage and of course we must admit that we cheered him on as he started to unbutton his shirt.

But like all good Westerns the stories lead you down long and twisty canyon trails and you never know what’s around the next turn.  Suddenly our groom got a bit feisty.

Trash the Dress - Photographer in BelizeBefore you could say ‘ride ‘em cowboy’.  He’d taken the situation in hand and the tables had turned.

Wedding Photographer - Trash the Dress BelizeIt was all we could do not to cover our eyes and blush when the scene in front of us took on a life of its very own.

Trash the Dress Wedding Photographer in BelizeOur final observation is that the old cowboy saying ‘He’s all hat and no cattle.’ Certainly did not apply in this instance.

This will go down in history as one hell of a ‘rootin’ tootin’ Trash the Dress experience for Conch Creative.

Rain or Shine – Part 2. Shine – Belize Weddings

Belize Wedding Photographers“While sleeping in a hammock, with the touch of a warm wind, we remember why we are in love with the life.”  Mehmet Murat ildan

Welcome to part two of our Rain & Shine two part blog series.  It’s almost always sunny in Belize and that’s one of the reasons it’s such a happy and romantic place for weddings.  In fact, one of the most popular activities involves spending time in one of the many hammocks you’ll find attached to palm trees and cabanas all over the island.Wedding Belize Photography“Put your head on my shoulder
Whisper in my ear, baby
Words I want to hear
Tell me, tell me that you love me too. ”  Paul Anka

So in this blog, we will be sharing the many ways that this beautiful couple spent their wedding day enjoying the sunshine in Belize.Belize Destination Wedding - Photography in Belize“Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high”  John Denver

Walking hand and hand along one of the many long docks along the coast is a favourite pastime for those visiting Ambergris Caye.  While enjoying the sea breeze and views, if you look down into the clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea below your feet, you might be lucky enough to spot some of the many tropical fish that inhabit the coral reef nearby.Destination Belize Wedding Photography - Mata Chica“The spaces between your fingers were meant to be filled with mine.”  Unknown Author

We felt obliged to give you a different perspective of walking down the dock so that you can see the reef that we are talking about.  The white breakers you see in the background is the sea popping over the Mesoamerican Reef.  Not to brag, but it is the largest barrier reef in the Northern Hemisphere and it is a World Heritage site.  Whether you love to dive, snorkel or simply dangle your toes into the water, you’ll definitely find Nemo here on a sunny day.Belize Wedding Photographers Conch Creative“This dame keeps dragging me into the bushes. Keep your eye open, you may have to rescue me.”  David O Selznick

You’ll find that on Ambergris Caye, despite being an atoll and almost a part of the Yucatan Peninsula, was once covered in coconut plantations.  This means the earth is very fertile and as such not only do the resorts have stunning and maturely planted grounds but we have an extensive rainforest wildlife reserve at the northern tip of the island.  Taking a stroll in our island ‘jungles’ in the sunshine can always prove to be an adventure.Wedding Photography in Belize“She is quick and curious and playful and strong.”  Kate Spade

You can’t stop yourself from having a playful and private moment in the warm sun.  It brings out the fun and romance in everyone.Belize Wedding Photography - Belize Photographer“Love unlocks doors and opens windows that weren’t even there before.”   Mignon McLaughlin.

When the sun gets a little bit too warm, a moment of solitude, with a glass of wine for a companion, knowing the love of your life is waiting for you, is all you need to feel refreshed.

Wedding Photographer - Belize Wedding - Photography“If waiting means being able to be with you, I’ll wait for as long as forever to be with you.”  Author Unknown

Knowing that your handsome groom is waiting for you can only be one of the best feelings in the world – especially when the sun is shining in paradise.Belize Wedding Photography Conch Creative“Marriage is a wonderful invention. Then again so is a bicycle repair kit.”  Billy Connolly

Ut oh.  He might not wait quite forever. Not when he has a shiny set of wheels.  Runaway groom!Wedding in Belize - Beach Belize Photography“I’ve got a bike. You can ride it if you like.
It’s got a basket, a bell that rings and
Things to make it look good.
I’d give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.
You’re the kind of girl that fits in with my world.”  Pink Floyd

Phew, he couldn’t cycle quite so fast in the afternoon heat, not that he’d want to.  Riding one bike down the beach is one of the most fun two people can have on Ambergris Caye.Belize Wedding Photographer - Conch Creative Photography“May love and laughter light your days and warm your heart.”  Irish Proverb

There are simply so many ways to enjoy Belize, whether you are laughing together in the shade…Photographer Belize Weddings“Laughter is an instant vacation.’”  Milton Berle

…or in the sunshine.Destination Wedding Photography Belize“If we wait until we’re ready, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives.”  Lemony Snicket

Taking that leap of faith hand in hand is simply so much easier when the sky is blue, the sea is turquoise and the palms are swaying gently in the breeze.

Destination Wedding Photographer - Belize Wedding Photographer“Love is the master key that opens the gate of happiness”  Oliver Wendell Holmes

Rain or shine, there is no place quite as special, quite as magical, quite as mysterious, quite as romantic as beautiful Belize.  Come and see us sometime.

Rain or Shine – Part 1. Rain – Belize Weddings

Belize Wedding Photography“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain”  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

It was bound to happen.  After over 200 weddings and bragging that it never rains at a Conch Creative wedding in Belize, we were tempting fate.  Our first wedding in the rain.  Want to know the most wonderful thing?  This darling couple didn’t care.  They were so in love and so excited about getting married that they said ‘rain or shine’ and they meant it.Destination Wedding Photography Belize“You astonish and amaze me, the way you can take a rainy day and make it glisten with diamonds”  Author Unknown

The rain didn’t change the rings. They were ready.Wedding Dress - Belize Wedding Photography” With you I’d dance in a storm with my best dress – fearless.”  Taylor Swift

The rain didn’t change the dress either.   It was ready too.Wedding Photographer Belize“Until the sun comes out again for you, my umbrella is big enough for two” Author Unknown

The groom, being ever so chivalrous, did get a little bit wet, but look at the smile on his face.

Belize Beach Wedding Photographer“Rain on the day you get married brings good luck.” – Old proverb

And so it began.  Our first rainy wedding.  Probably one of the most romantic we’ve ever had.Destination wedding in Belize - Photographer Belize“Tears of joy are like the summer raindrops pierced by sunbeams.”  Hosea Ballou

The tears of joy started to flow like raindrops.Wedding Photographer Belize - Belize Wedding“Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water.”  Brian Jacques

But the groom was there to dry those tears.

Wedding Belize Photographer“Hold your sweetheart’s hand and walk in the rains while the clouds play cupid.”  Author Unknown

Rain or shine, they walked back up that aisle, officially married.Wedding in Belize“Kiss me in the rain, love me in the dark, hold me till the end, and never break my heart.”  Author Unknown

And so it was sealed with a kiss.Wedding Photography in Belize“Perhaps love is like a resting place, a shelter from the storm.”  John Denver

After the unique pleasure of a marriage in the tropical rains of Belize, it was time to relax, reconnect and dry out.Destination Belize Wedding Photographer“Every storm runs out of rain. Just like every dark night turns into day.” Gary Allan

As the darkness drew in and island became still, the couple considered venturing back out.Belize Wedding in the rain - Belize Photographer“‘If raindrops were kisses, I’d send you showers. If hugs were seas,I’d send you oceans. And if love was a person I’d send you me!”  Emily Bronte

Just when they thought the clouds had parted, the Maya Rain Gods of Belize decided to bless them just one more time.Destination Wedding Photographer Belize“Sharing one umbrella
We have to hold each other
Round the waist to keep together.
You ask me why I’m smiling -
It’s because I’m thinking
I want it to rain for ever.”  Vicky Feaver

Stay tuned for part two of this Rain & Shine blog.

The Lure of the Mysterious Maya – Belize Weddings

Belize Destination Wedding PhotographerWhen an adventurous couple decide to have a destination wedding in Belize, it is tempting to assume that it will be a barefoot beach wedding.  Belize is well known for it’s beautiful Caribbean sea and sandy, palm dotted islands, but for a few, something else calls them from Belize. Among the waterfalls, the tropical rain forest and jungle setting it is easy to remember that Belize is an ancient land, once inhabited by one of the most advanced civilisations in the world.  Belize was the home of the Maya people.  It is the lure of the mysteries of this ancient civilisation that brings some to create memories of a lifetime in Belize.  This is one of those couples.

Belize Destination Wedding PhotographerLike every good wedding story, this one starts with a beautiful bride, contemplating her future.   Miles away from anything she knows as modern civilisation, deep in the forest of the Mountain Pine Ridge of Belize.

Belize Destination Wedding PhotographerThis wedding is experiencing a different sort of civilisation and sharing in practices and rites that have been passed down for generations.   Copal, an incense used since ancient times, is being burned in the background by a local shaman for ritual and purification purposes.  Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - photographyAfter prayers were offered, a traditional joining by a string of beads was made and a Belizean officiant legalised the marriage.

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeSome children from a local village were delighted to help create a colourful aisle for the bride and groom to break through.

Belize Destination  Wedding PhotographerSome of the children were particularly adorable.

Belize Destination Wedding PhotographerAfter the spiritual and moving Maya ceremony, the couple explored the grounds and enjoyed their first moments together as newlyweds.

Belize Wedding Photographer - conch creativeFinding some scenic and…

Belize Wedding Photographer - conch creative…very romantic locations along the way.

Wedding in Belize - PhotographerIt was a beautifully intense and wonderful day – only a second to get a little bit of rest before the celebrations continued.

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeThe entertainment was just getting warmed up with a group of incredible marimba players.

Belize Maya Wedding - PhotographyAs the evening and the celebrations continued, traditional Maya dances were performed.   Certainly this was a Maya experience for the couple to remember and treasure forever, but the lure of the mysterious Maya persisted for them and so their adventure continued the following day.

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeIt was now time for the couple to step out of the deep, dark rain forest and out into the Belizean sun…

Belize Destination Wedding Photographer…and encounter the ruins of the ancient Maya people.  These are the ruins of Xunantunich.  Over 2000 years ago,  Xunantunich was a great city with over 200,000 residents.

Belize Destination Wedding PhotographerNow they stand as a testament to the great, ancient Maya civilsation and have been preserved and restored remarkably allowing those with an adventurous and curious spirit to discover and learn about this fascinating part of human history.

Belize Destination Wedding PhotographerAside from the incredible story of these ancient temples, the scenery is amazing. So, if you’d kindly indulge us, we’d like to just enjoy that for a few photos.

Belize Wedding Photographer - conch creativeThis is the view towards the main temple, El Castillo, looking North.

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeThis is the absolutely stunning view of Belize from El Castillo.

Belize Destination Wedding PhotographerThis is El Castillo, where the legend says, a maiden dressed in white would appear. This is where the name Xunantunich, which means ‘stone maiden’, originates.

Belize Wedding PhotographyIt was that legend, which also inspired this image.

Belize Destination Wedding PhotographerThe ruins are vast and there is so much to explore and learn about the Maya people, their history, traditions and modern way of life.  If you’re adventurous and you want to step into your future by taking a step into the ancient past, we suggest you consider following the lure of the mysterious Maya … all the way to Belize.

This gorgeous wedding was planned and hosted at Blancaneaux Lodge in the Pine Ridge of  Belize

Down & Dirty in Belize – Trash the Dress Wedding Photography

Trash the Dress in Belize - Wedding PhotographyThis year Conch Creative had some challenges with the weather.  In fact, all of Belize had some challenges with the weather.  It rained hard and long and everything got extremely wet and mucky.   So, we couldn’t have been more delighted when the bride and groom wanted to trash their dress in the most fun, playful and positively down and dirty manner possible.

Trash the Dress in Belize PhotographyIt all started so innocently, just a little pat on the bum for the bride.

Trash the Dress in Belize - Wedding PhotographyThe groom got pretty cheeky…

Trash the Dress in Belize Photography…but the bride got even cheekier.

Trash the Dress in Belize - Wedding PhotographyPayback time!

Trash the Dress in Belize - Wedding PhotographyUntil the roles reversed!

Trash the Dress in Belize - Wedding PhotographyThat didn’t last for long.

Belize Destination Wedding PhotographerWhen we told them it was time to finish, the bride found another puddle to play in.

Belize Wedding - Trash the DressLuckily the beach was close to hand for a little bit of cleaning up.

Belize Wedding Photography - destination Wedding - Trash the Dress…they were still a little bit dirty.

This Trash the Dress session was one of our favourites ever.  We’d like to thank the couple for being such great sports. We had so much fun and will never forget our dirtiest Trash the Dress ever!

10 Steps to Having a Fearless and Fabulous Beach Wedding – Belize Weddings

Wedding Photography in Belize - Detination Belize Wedding PhotographerThere must be something about Conch Creative that attracts the most fearless and fabulous weddings and we’re certainly not complaining.   So, what makes a wedding both fearless and fabulous?

San Pedro Wedding Photographer1. Have a great hair dresser, with great hair spray.  Barefoot beach weddings are undoubtedly wonderful things but the salt air, humidity and wind can be the ruination of even the most fabulous hair style.

San Pedro Belize Wedding Photographer2.  Think about details. Details can make or break fabulous events and photographs.

Wedding in Belize -  Belize Destination Wedding Photography by Conch Creative3. Share the excitement.  Whether you are having a family wedding, or a secret elopement, make sure there is someone you can share your excitement with.   Kiss your Mum or call your BFF, either way, sharing is caring.

Wedding in Belize Destination Belize Wedding Photography4. Keep some mystery to the day.  Even if you’ve lived together for 10 years before getting married, this day is ‘special’ and surprises make it even more magical.

Belize Wedding Photographer - Belize Wedding Photography - Award Winning Photographer in Belize5. Bring a pair of heels for fun.  It may be a barefoot wedding, but there are so many other things that a girl can do with a nice pair of heels.  These heels and this photo even won an international photography award from Fearless Photographers.

Wedding Photographer - Belize Wedding6.  Kiss.  Kiss a lot.  Kissing is healthy, good, clean fun and should be encouraged at all times.

Belize Wedding Photographer - Conch Creative7. Enjoy the natural environment and beauty.  If you come all the way to Belize for your wedding, make sure to take time to look around you.

Beliz Wedding - Belize Wedding Photographer8. Bring sunglasses.   You’re in the tropics.  You’ll need them.

Belize Wedding Photographer9. Smile.  There is nothing more fabulous than smiling.

Belize Wedding - Trash the Dress Wedding Photographer10.  Let your hair down, don’t be precious about your dress and get wet!

This about sums it up folks.  If you’re going to come to Belize to get married, be Fearless and be Fabulous and definitely, definitely, get wet!

Destination Wedding Belize PhotographerBecause if you don’t get wet, you’ll never get photos like this…

Trash the Dress in Belize - Wedding photography…this….

Trash The Dress Wedding Photography in Belize…or this and when you look back through your photos in 20 years, think about the ones that will still take your breath away.

Trash the Dress - Destination Wedding PhotographyThis is another real destination wedding love story and adventure.  Our couple not only love each other, but like most of our amazing wedding couples, they love Belize.   We’re so excited to share their wedding adventure with you.  We get to work with so many adventurous people who want to do something exciting, want to find out about our beautiful island jewel, Ambergris Caye, and of course who want Conch Creative along for the ride to help them create memories that they will always treasure.  Welcome to the world of real island adventures.

Belize Wedding- Photographer in BelizeIt all starts with a patient groom, enjoying the brew of Belize, Belikin.  Belikin is well known to calm nerves and cause smiling.  If you drink too many, we take no responsibility for the adventures you may have.

You are My Sunshine – Weddings in Belize

Wedding Photographer BelizeBelize is an amazing country for destination weddings and we love being able to photograph ceremonies all over the country.  For example, this blog is coming to you from Hopkins, a beautiful fishing village on the southern coast of Belize and a perfect location for a barefoot beach wedding.  Of course everyone wants sunshine on their wedding.

Wedding Photographer - Destination BelizeHere we find our groom, deep in thought, wondering where he might find the sunshine of his life.  There’s definitely something missing in this picture.

This must be her. After all, she’s dressed in white and carrying a bouquet.

Belize Destination Wedding PhotographerLuckily they had plenty of help to find her.  Phew!

He told her about his lonely picture and how there was no sunshine without her there.
