Photography in Paradise

Belize Wedding – Kisses, Kitties and Cigars

As wedding photographers in Belize, we get to meet so many wonderful people and that, aside from working in paradise, is what makes our job so very special.  This couple were not just gorgeous, but their whole family were super fun, so we’ve decided to take you on a journey with us through their special day, starting behind the scenes.  We know you’ll love it as much as we did.

Wherever you are, the bridal preparations are of the utmost importance.  There are rituals and unctions involved to beautify the bride and make her feel special.

But one secret ritual you may not have known is that all of the brides maids stick rubber cigars into their hair.  We think it might bestow them with magic powers.   Meanwhile……

…the groom is initiating his sister into the secret world of the male ritual.  Instead of putting plastic cigars in their hair, they attempt to smoke real ones.

Hmm.  Maybe it is best to stick with the plastic hair cigars.

So, once the secret behind the scenes rituals end, the guests get to enjoy the traditions of a wedding union…except they get to enjoy it on a paradise island overlooking the Caribbean.  Can anyone say – ‘Getting married in paradise takes it to the next level”?

Sticking with tradition, the bride and groom make sure to greet and thank all of their guests.

Conch Creative encourages couples to relax, throw tradition into the wind and escape for some romantic alone time to make the best of the beauty of Belize.  So, here we go!

First some time to contemplate and regroup.

Then some time for a romantic interlude.

Then a chance to explore the local sights and architecture….

…and finally time for a little sit down.   Full of love, smiles and joy, this couple definitely have the most amazing memories from their beautiful wedding in Belize.

We very much enjoyed our time with them and we hope you did too.  Come to Belize, fall in love, get married, smoke a cigar, chat to a cat, sit on a dock, celebrate with your loved ones and have an unforgettable experience in paradise.

This beautiful ceremony was arranged and hosted by the quite fantastic Xanadu Island Resort.

Giclees are the highest level of reproduction for art and are printed on canvas. If you’d like more information, please contact Jerry Lansing, the owner of The Gallery of San Pedro at jerrylansing@yahoo.com . You’ll find they are very reasonably priced and can be shipped internationally or purchased directly from The Gallery.
