Belize Weddings in Paradise

Conch Creative – it’s a jungle out there

Conch Creative visited mainland Belize to photograph a wedding ceremony held at Xunantunich Maya ruins and then on to the beautiful Mahogany Hall.  With 2012 looming and the popularity of the end of the world ‘prophecies’, there is a great deal of fascination and interest in the Maya culture.  Of course, Belize is the heartland of this ancient civilisation and has many beautiful archaeological sites.

These sites are fabulous, magical and dramatic.  Even more amazing is that there are usually hardly any people there and you can end up having the whole site to yourselves.  On the day of Katie and Derrick’s ceremony, it was beautiful and clear.

Following the ceremony, Katie and Derrick took the opportunity to climb a pyramid, 130′ tall – the second largest man made structure in Belize.  What an amazing experience and the  memories will give them something to talk about for the rest of their lives.

Of course, if you’re familiar with Conch Creative you’ll know that we always like to do something a little bit different if we have a couple who are willing to have some fun.  Please keep in mind that the Xunantunich site was not in any way closed to the public during this ceremony.  The couple willingly posed multiple times allowing us to create this image.

Then it was on to the grand Mahogany Hall.  This is a beautiful resort overlooking the Mopan River in Bullet Tree, just outside of San Ignacio, Belize.

Mahogany Hall has an ageless style with beautiful architecture.   A great deal of love and care has gone into developing this beautiful resort and it shows.

The atmosphere and gentle beauty of the setting of Mahogany Hall, with the roar of the Mopan River in the background makes you feel like you have stepped back into another age.

No trip to mainland Belize would be complete without the requisite wildlife photographs.  This is a Collared Aracari eating bananas at Mahogany Hall.  If you’ve never been to mainland Belize, be warned – there are beautiful birds everywhere and it is rich with stunning wildlife – much of which you’ll never see anywhere else in the world.

Before we knew it, we were back on our beautiful jewel in the Caribbean, Ambergris Caye, for a beach wedding at the unique and very cool Xanadu resort.

Conch Creative looks forward to sharing more of their adventures with you soon.
