Rain or Shine – Part 2. Shine – Belize Weddings
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.“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.“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.“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.“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.“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.“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.
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.“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!“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.“May love and laughter light your days and warm your heart.” Irish Proverb
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.
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.
