Belize Weddings in Paradise

A Wedding in Belize

Conch Creative, as wedding photographers in Belize, feel obliged to finally offer up a blog wholly dedicated to a wedding in Belize.  We could think of no better event than Mary & Gabe’s wedding at Coco Beach Resort in San Pedro, organised by ‘I DO’ Belize Weddings.

So please join us as we take you through their fabulous and romantic day in paradise with a documentary photographic journey.  Here are some of our favourite images from the day.

Every wedding has rings – and some have a little more bling than others.  These rings were photographed on amethyst and quartz crystal with the stunning backdrop of the Caribbean Sea.  If you can see that line of foam in the distance, that is the Mesoamerican Reef – the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere, stretching over 724 kilometeres (450 miles) along the coast of Central America.  The fact that you can see the reef from the shoreline of Ambergris Caye and reach it by boat in less than 10 minutes, is one of the many things that makes our island jewel a unique Caribbean wedding destination.

Before any ceremony, there is a great deal of anticipation.  Something exciting is going to happen; something big and something that will leave everyone with lasting memories.  For children, this is an extra special time, filled with magic and mystery.  This is a picture of three of the children attending this family event, watching as the preparations on the beach below carry on in a flurry of activity.

In the background, the very cool musicians, who will be creating the true Caribbean ambiance are getting themselves in just the right mood for the celebrations ahead.

..and then, suddenly, before anyone realises – it’s that time.  This is the most nerve wracking moment, when everyone tries to keep their composure and remember exactly what they have to do.

This is where it will happen. Everyone is here, watching and waiting to share in the celebration and the union of the loving couple.  Emotions run high…

As the vows are read meaningfully and lovingly, it all gets too much and the tears flow.

The rings are no longer a prop, in a beautiful setting, but now important reminders that this is the real thing.  Signifying a binding and lasting commitment.

It all goes by in a blur and suddenly you’re no longer in that tense, emotional moment in front of your family and friends, but instead you are with them and celebrating together.

There can be no doubt that everyone is sharing the love….

…even the very youngest guests join in.

Afterwards, it’s important to have some quiet time – away from the guests – letting it all sink in and remembering what the day is truly all about.

Time, of course, to appreciate the beautiful setting, the sunshine and the cool Caribbean breeze.

Time to enjoy each other.

And finally, when the sun is setting, it’s time to join the party and celebrate in style.  Belize style.

Weddings in Belize are truly unique, special and wonderfully romantic experiences – whether you are eloping and having an intimate ceremony for two on an isolated beach, or having a big family wedding at one of our fabulous resorts – there aren’t many places in the world that will leave you with the sort of memories that beautiful, friendly, laid back and unspoiled Belize can.

Belize – the ultimate in destination wedding locations.
