Belize Weddings in Paradise


Princess in Paradise – Belize Destination Wedding

Destination Belize Wedding PhotographyBeing a princess is all about the attitude. A destination wedding in Belize is not something you see in most fairy princess stories and that’s why our brides like to create their own stories. Sometimes that means that princesses have to wear sunglasses.

Wedding BelizeOf course the first thing a princess must do is adjust her crown.

Wedding-in-Belize-PhotographerTa Da! Once the crown was in place and she’d had a bit of Belize’s special magic princess potion (ingredients normally include pineapple and rum), she appeared in her full princess regalia.

Wedding-Photographer-BelizeHer handsome prince could not resist her princessy powers and arrived to claim her as his own.

Destination-Wedding-Photography-BelizeThey held hands, and shared sweet nothings as they walked down the beach. It didn’t appear he was going to turn into a frog anytime soon.

Belize-Wedding-Photographer-in-BelizeShe took him closer to the water, just to test that theory.

Belize-Wedding-PhotographyAnd when it seemed absolutely certain that he wasn’t going to hop off into the distance, they sat down – we think, to discuss their palace.

Wedding-Photographer-in-BelizeThey even found a local tower to celebrate in true royal style.

Destination-Belize-Wedding-PhotographyBut finally, it doesn’t matter whether you are royalty or not, beautiful and magical Belize will always be where princesses find true paradise.

This paradise princess wedding was hosted by the beautiful Athens Gate Resort

A Wedding For Three! – Belize Destination Wedding

Destination-Belize-Wedding-Photographer---BelizeLike so many stories of destination weddings in Belize that we share with you, this one is a love story. Of course there is a bride and a groom, both very much in love. But sometimes a wedding isn’t just about two people. Sometimes there’s a little bit extra love and in this case, the bride was not just marrying one person but two.

Belize-Destination-Wedding-PhotographyThis is the third, and so very important person, in this love story and she was so much a part of the ceremony it even brought a tear to the eye of this tough old wedding photographer.

Wedding-Photographer-in-BelizeShe was involved with every aspect of the preparations. It was such an exciting and emotional day for her.

Wedding-Photography-in-Belize-Whenever it got a little bit too crazy, she could sneak outside and observe the goings on.

Belize-Wedding---Destination-PhotographerShe was so loved and so included. Just the way it should be when a wedding is truly the bonding of a family unit.

Belize-Wedding-PhotographerWhile she watched the ceremony with such intensity, she unconsciously touched the beautiful necklace she had just been gifted.

Belize-Wedding-Photographer-conch-creativeShe didn’t remain seated for long because she was an integral part of this joining.

Ambergris-Caye-Wedding-PhotographerOK, well maybe some bits were just for the grown ups, but she didn’t seem to mind one bit.

Belize-Destination-WeddingThis was a much more fun way for her to celebrate.

Wedding-Photography-BelizeThere were so many wonderful and special moments.

Photographer-in-Belize-Beach-Destination-WeddingThe family that celebrates together certainly stays together we think.

Belize-Wedding-Photographer---Belize-WeddingIt was nearly time for the party to start.

Belize-Beach-Wedding-PhotographerEven though everyone was having way too much fun already.

Beach-Wedding-Photography-We transported the happy couple away for a little romance on their own – Belize style!

Wedding-Photography-San-Pedro-BelizeStill managing to have way too much fun…

Belize-Wedding-Photographer---Las-Terrazas…they finally found a spot to share some tender moments together.

Belize-Wedding-PhotographyThe sun set quickly.

Wedding-Photographer-in-Belize---Las-TerrazasBefore they knew it, it was time to return to reality…

Belize-Destination-Wedding-Photographers…if you can call a setting like this ‘reality’.

San-Pedro-Belize-Wedding-PhotographerAs the night drew to close, it ended like it all began – as a wedding for three.

Wedding-in-Belize---Belizean-PhotographerAnd that is truly something worth getting excited about!

This absolutely love filled and beautiful wedding for three was organised and hosted by the fabulous Las Terrazas Resort

La Isla L’Amour Part 1 – Belize Wedding Photography

Belize Wedding Photographer -San Pedro - Ambergris CayeHow many ways can I say I love you?  Love sounds good in French & Spanish, so why not mix it up.  Love is love and it’s pretty amazing to be able to share our love of Belize with two people who are so in love with each other.  So, join us on this tour of l’amour on La Isla Bonita and let us help to define our idea of La Isla L’Amour.

We’d like to thank Matachica resort for hosting this gorgeous bride & groom as well as organising their wedding.

First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes Cuteness Overload in the Baby Carriage… – Belize Photography

043 copyIf you follow our blog, you’ll notice that this one is a little bit different.  We normally post weddings on this blog.  Now, it may surprise you that we don’t just photograph weddings.  We do commercial photography and have provided the images for many of the top resorts in Belize for their websites.  We do a little bit of ‘ooh la-la’ glamour photography, which you can find on our website, if you are so inclined.  We also do family photography.  We do tend to be a bit fussy about the families we work with as we’re not into the cookie cutter approach.  Our view is that if you all want to wear matching clothes and stand in a line with rictus grins, you probably are better off going to a shopping mall and standing in front of a backdrop that looks like you’ve been to the Caribbean – it’s much cheaper than the real trip too.  We prefer to work with families with two characteristics – 1. They have character and are fun (OK. Fair enough, that’s two) and 2. They appreciate the beauty of Belize, which is why they want to have memories of their time here recorded for posterity.

Well, this family fits both those criteria and even more – because they were one of the first wedding couples we photographed in Belize and they have come back year after year to allow us to photograph their growing family since.

129This couple loved Belize and had been visiting regularly for years – staying at the charming Sunbreeze Hotel, right in San Pedro Town.  They had been back so often, they had become like part of the family there and so there really was nowhere else they would have rather wed than right there on the beach with their loved ones- both from the USA and Belize – right there with them.

189And goodness, what a celebration it was!  So let’s fast forward a few years when they arrived with a surprise.

012RNot just any surprise either – one of the cutest little surprises you could imagine.  So, now we’ll just blow your cute gasket with some photos of their son on his first trip to their beloved Belize.

Portrait Photographer BelizeSeriously, we are on adorable overload right now.

026 copyOh and guess what little one, your Mommy & Daddy have been here before.

196What’s that old saying?  ‘The more things change, the more they stay the same.’

La Isla bon Epic – An epic Belize Wedding – Part 2.

Wedding Photograohy Belize by Conch CreativeIf you saw part 1 of this blog, then you’ll know how much fun we had with this couple all around San Pedro Town. It was one of most popular blogs ever.  We promised you a part 2 and here it is. This is the wedding – and of course, all beach weddings in Belize are pretty spectacular, so please join us while we share this couple’s special day in paradise.

Belize Wedding Photographer - Conch CreativeOh my! They are a great looking couple.

La Isla Bon-epic! An Epic Belize Wedding – Part 1

Belize Wedding Photography - Belize Wedding
You are having a destination wedding.  You’ve picked the magical, tropical, paradise of Belize.  You are going to have your wedding on the famous island Ambergris Caye, more commonly known by the name of its only town, San Pedro – or even more famously known as ‘La Isla Bonita’ (oh yes, Madonna dreamt of us last night!).  You know you want the whole getting married on the beach experience, with the turquoise Caribbean Sea twinkling in the background and palm trees. But then you say to yourself ‘Wait a minute! I’m going all the way to this interesting and beautiful country and I’m just going to get photos on the beach.  That’s simply not good enough!  I want more!’  And more you shall get – because Conch Creative loves to show our couples the real Belize.   Oh yeah, we take photos too and here are some from one of our most epic wedding adventures.

Trash the Dress Belize Wedding PhotographerThere are a number of luxury vehicles available to transport our lucky couples around the island.

Destination Wedding Photographer BelizeGolf carts are the most common form of transportation.

Belize Wedding Photographer Trash the DressOnce you get into the quaint, colourful and quirky town of San Pedro, there are all sorts of fun things to do but first you want to make sure you look your very best.  So getting a pair of new shoes is a good place to start.

Belize Wedding - Photographer Weddings BelizeHang around and enjoy some fun activities.

Trash the DRess - Wedding Photography in BelizeFamiliarise yourselves with the local animal life.

Wedding Photography in BelizeOK. Maybe not THAT familiar!

Belize Wedding Photography - Conch CreativeAnd contemplate its deeper meaning.

Belize Wedding Photography -Don’t forget about the unique architecture.  Seriously though, Belize is so much more than it’s beaches and jungle. It’s about the people and, of course, the Isla Bonita life.

When all is said and done you may just feel like this bride did –

“I can’t speak highly enough for the amazing experience you have given us.  From day 1, your email communications were prompt, detailed & polite.  The actual photography experience was a joy & you were both so carefree and easy to work with.  We will never forget the fun we had with you during our Isla Bonita experience.  To be honest, it was quite possibly one of our favorite moments while in Belize…. having no kids was a huge relief, but also laughing until we cried & having the opportunity to see the most interesting sites on the island was much appreciated.  I’ve been to Belize 100 times and have never experienced San Pedro in that way.  Im glad to hear you had fun too :)  I am speechless at how well the pictures have turned out & we will cherish these for the rest of our lives.  Words cannot describe how thankful we are. “

Look out for Part 2 of this blog featuring the actual gorgeous wedding at Xanadu Island Resort.

Coming soon.

How to Keep Cool and Still Have a Hot Wedding – Belize Wedding Photography

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizePeople come to beautiful Belize to get married because it’s sunny. It’s warm.  And of course it’s just gorgeous.  But hot and sunny weddings aren’t always what Mother Nature plans and if you follow our little blog here about weddings in Belize, you’ll know that we encourage all of our couples to get in the water, take a little dip and cool off in the hot Caribbean sun.  This wedding is a perfect example of how to be super hot, keep cool and have the best time of your life

Belize Wedding Photographer

A popular option for keeping cool in Belize is the famous local beer, Belikin.  It’s also great for those pre wedding nerves…

Wedding Belize Photographer…but too many can lead to an urgent need to cool down even more.   You have been warned and don’t think we don’t encourage this sort of behaviour – because we do.

Wedding photographer Belize - Coco BeachThe wedding started perfectly with hot young women staying cool in the air conditioning but getting hot by jumping on the bed but staying cool by not getting dressed and well…..we could go on..but you get the hot/cool references we think

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeBring on the hot young men stepping outside onto their balcony to look cool, while the young women below just keep looking hot, except they are not dressed, so they are sort of cool…

Wedding in Belize - Destination wedding photographyThis couple brought along some super cool gifts for their guests because, of course, wait for it…’s hot (and sunny) in Belize.

Belize Wedding PhotographerAnd it was…right until they were about to say their vows.  At this point, any plan B goes by the wayside.  The good news is that in Belize it is believed that if it rains on your wedding day, it is a blessing.  Good thing really….

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography Belize…because in Belize, Mother Nature never does anything by halves. When she wants to bless your wedding, you know it’s going to get really blessed.

Belize Wedding PhotographerThe wonderful thing about this very hot couple getting cooled down by the rain….they didn’t miss a beat.

Belize WeddingNothing could stop these two. It was all about the moment, their love, being with their friends and family….and so why not make the best of it.

Belize Wedding Photographer - 2Everyone at the wedding was super cool and just went with the flow.

Destination Belize Wedding - Belize PhotographerThe beautiful bride’s cool blue eyes never stopped sparkling.

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeThe cool colour combination ensured that the bridesmaids popped against the moody sky.

Belize PhotographerMeanwhile, the guys snuck off, we’re guessing that the bar wasn’t far from here, they were feeling hot and needed a cool refreshing beer.

Destination Belize Wedding PhotographyBefore the drinking could commence though, it was time for guests to participate in another cool idea from the wedding couple.

Wedding Photographer Belize - Wedding PhotographyOne must never forget that the sun is never far away in Belize.

Belize Wedding PhotographerCreating beautiful shadows.

Wedding Photographer BelizeAnd incredible colours in the sky when it sets.

Belize Wedding Photographer - conch creativeWow!  What a cool indoor venue.  Not many people know about some of the gorgeous locations Belize has for the hottest weddings.

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeTime to reconnect for some quiet time before things really do hot up.

Wedding Photography in BelizeBecause it looks like this super cool wedding crew know how to keep hot even when things get cooler in sunny and sometimes rainy Belize.

Belize Wedding PhotographerWe so enjoyed taking part in this really cool wedding with this really hot couple. We hope you enjoyed it too!

This wedding was hosted and planned by the hot, beautiful and very cool Coco Beach Resort

The Thing About Paradise…. – Belize Wedding

Belize Wedding Photographer

There is something about paradise.  Maybe we’re biased.  We work in a place we believe is paradise. We live in a place we believe is paradise.  We spend the happiest days of people’s lives with them in a place we believe is paradise.  The thing about paradise is that it is beautiful in so many ways.  Probably a bit like love.  We guess this is why paradise + love is such a great match and why people choose to get married in Belize.

Belize Wedding PhotographerDresses seem, somehow, much dressier in paradise

Belize Wedding PhotographerEven bling has a way of being even blingier in paradise.

Belize Wedding PhotographerLove from your family is even lovelier in paradise.

Belize WeddingYour groom’s cheeky smile looks even cheekier in paradise.

Belize Wedding PhotographerAn aisle lined with tropical flowers certainly seems more tropical in paradise. Oh and no one has to buy new shoes for the wedding!

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeSmiles are smilier in paradise.

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeThe palm trees…well, the palm trees are ridiculously palmy in paradise.

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeEven the seaweed manages to be extraordinarily seaweedy and even quite beautiful in paradise.

Belize PhotographerAnd you know what’s even crazier about paradise?  The fish are not fishier and they are always biting.  So, even if you’ve already got the best fish in the sea – paradise in Belize is waiting for you.

This wedding in paradise was organised by the stunningly Victoriany Victoria House

Fifty Shades of Pink – Belize Wedding

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeWe think there is nothing sexier than the sky, reflecting over the Caribbean Sea, just before sunset in Belize.  You would’t need whips or chains to get this couple to spend time together.  So let’s start this love story, which includes nothing but a little bit of light veil bondage, from the beginning.

Belize Wedding Photographer - conch creativeThe beautiful bride arrives in her sparkling limousine down the tree lined avenue.  She trembles slightly as she anticipates the moment when she will set eyes on her handsome groom.

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography Belize

She exits the shiny limousine with thoughts of love and passion running wildly through her mind.

Wedding Photography in BelizeShe sees her groom and immediately presses herself against him.

Belize Wedding PhotographerHe teasingly toys with her veil.

Belize Wedding Photographer(here comes the promised veil bondage)

He wraps the veil around them, binding them together as he nuzzles her neck.

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeAnd then a cute dog appears.  Hey, c’mon.  You all know us well enough to know that we couldn’t continue the steamy story and keep a straight face.  The dog is cute though.

Belize PhotographerThey were such a gorgeous couple and really didn’t even need a bit of veil bondage to make them seem sexy.

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeWe were sad to see them go when the day ended and they drove off into the distance on the …ok we admit’s not a limousine it’s a golf cart – but this is Belize and here, one man or woman’s golf cart is definitely as good as a limousine. Why?

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography BelizeBecause this!  Fifty shades of pink is simply priceless.

This lovely wedding was held on the beach in the beautiful Boca del Rio area of Ambergris Caye

and was organised by the couples’ good friend Libby Vidrine
