Kids Bring a Little Magic – Belize Weddings

wedding-in-belize-beach-photographerAs wedding photographers in Belize, we are beyond lucky to be able to photograph weddings in the most spectacular scenery. We get to work at people’s dream destination weddings. You think that would be enough and most of the time it is, but we have to share a little secret. When couples let us know that they have kids in attendance, we look forward to the wedding even more because kids bring just a little bit of their own special magic to every wedding and they are just so freakin’ cute. Their charm, innocence, curiosity and sense of fun make for truly memorable and magical moments. This wedding is perfect example.

destination-wedding-photographer-san-pedro-belizeAlthough every bride and groom are unique, there are certain things that are pretty much guaranteed to happen at most weddings. First, the bride gets a little help so that she can feel her most beautiful.

belize-wedding-photographer-ambergris-cayeThe groom, too, usually needs a little bit of help with his boutonniere. There is a very specific skill that you must have to be able to put one of these on properly. We’ve tried and failed many times. The last thing you want to happen is for the bride and groom to have their first kiss and the bride gets stabbed with the pin.

beach-wedding-coco-beachEnter – the love of a child. Children understand celebrations better than anyone and they wear their hearts on their sleeve more openly than any adult.

belize-wedding-coco-beach-san-pedro-photographyIt’s a long day for young children so it’s important to make sure that they have a little help to get them to the ceremony on time.

destination-wedding-photographer-in-belizeWhen it’s all over, it’s time for the guests to go and relax and for the couple to get a little alone time.

destination-belize-wedding-photographerThis is a time, away from friends, family and, of course, the children.

belize-destination-wedding-photographerMany couples tell us that this private photo session after the ceremony is one of their favourite parts of the day.

wedding-photographer-in-belizeAfter all the craziness of the day, the preparations and then the ceremony goes by in a flash. It’s a pleasure to escape and reconnect again. And, no matter how much you love the children, it’s nice to get a break from them too.

wedding-photographer-san-pedro-belizeOh well! Spoke too soon there. Belizean children LOVE weddings. They adore seeing the beautiful brides dressed up like princesses and so if they hear there is a wedding nearby, they’ll find you.

belize-wedding-photographerAs in most marriages though, the children aren’t the only ‘kids’ in the family.

wedding-photography-in-belizeAs weddings in Belize tend to be late in the afternoon to benefit from the most flattering natural light and the most comfortable time of the day, it also means you get to end the experience against a sky with colours like a painting, over the Caribbean Sea.

wedding-photographer-belize-coco-beachYou also get to enjoy a little ‘grown up’ time with your guests at a private party on the beach.

san-pedro-destination-wedding-photographer-belizeBut when all is said and done, if you have children at your wedding, it will be those magical moments that only they can create that will live on in your memories to be shared time and time again.

This wonderful wedding was hosted by the beautiful Coco Beach Resort and organised by their brilliant Sandy Points team.


Where Love Sparkles – Belize Weddings

Wedding-in-BelizeIt’s rare that a wedding gives us a blogging dilemma, but this one certainly did. It was just so adorable and every single photo made us smile. Of course, what’s the point of blogging if we can’t share all of those incredible moments with you? So, we were left with two burning questions: 1. How are we going to narrow it down to a reasonable number of photos? and 2. What photo do we start with? Well, jumping photos have always been popular. They are symbolic, fun and, when done in Belize, super duper scenic. But this jumping photo had that ‘x’ factor. Not sure what it is, but they definitely looked like they were about to fly off into the horizon, hand in hand – and so, this is how we’re starting our blog today.

Ambergris-Caye-Wedding-PhotographerThe rest of the blog will be easy as we’re just going to take you through the day so that you can experience it like we did. We know you’ll definitely have as much fun as we did, but possibly not as much as the bride and groom. We’ll start off with some mellow photos of the details first, because they were pretty exceptional.

Wedding-Destination-Belize-PhotographerWhen you ask for a bouquet with tropical colours, this has got to be what you’re thinking of. Simply stunning. What you don’t expect is that they’ll make you insatiably hungry. Yes. You read that correctly. All we can say is to read on and you’ll see what we mean.

Ambergris-Caye-Wedding-Photographer-in-BelizeTechnology is changing so many things and we all remember that awkward moment someone tried to hold up a mirror behind us so that we could see what the back of our head looked like. Well, that doesn’t have to happen anymore. Did we mention the details were fabulous at this wedding and exceptionally sparkly?

Wedding-Photography-in-Belize-by-Conch-CreativeHere’s our gorgeous bride. Just wait til you see that dress properly. Wow!

Wedding-Photographer-San-Pedro-BelizeGrooms don’t look quite as good as brides in silhouette but he certainly looks dapper.

Wedding-BelizeRemember what we were saying about details. Well, our lovely readers, this is Belize. You know, like the shape of the entire country and…we’re not sure exactly what they’ve made it out of. It sort of looks like Licorice Allsorts. Whatever it is, it’s outrageously adorable and they’ve even made the cayes. You can see Ambergris Caye, which is where they got married, and some of the others.  Crazy imaginative details.

San-Pedro-Belize-Wedding-PhotographerOh wow. It’s that time already. Did someone paint this? Could it be more perfect?

Beach-Wedding-Belize-Coco-Beach-San-PedroOh for goodness sake. The bride even had beautiful feet and barefoot sandals. Seriously. It can’t be this lovely and then they have a great time too – or can it?

Ambergris-Caye-Wedding-PhotographyAnd there you have it. Oh yes. As well as being gorgeous, having the most amazing details and a dream beach setting on the Caribbean, they had to just have the best time of their lives doing it. Did we mention this is Belize? Yeah, we must admit…this sort of thing does seem to happen here. Maybe it’s the salty seaside air, the hot sun or possibly the rum.  Hmmm.

Belize-Wedding-Photographer---Conch-CreativeWe promise. These are real people. Not actors. They also happened to be two very lovely people and you’re going to get to share a little of our private time with them. But first we need to get the nuptials over with.

Belize-Photographer-WeddingsHere, we present you with the walk down the aisle, with the waves breaking over the Mesoamerian reef in the background and the little clouds so fluffy they look like cotton.

Wedding-Belize-PhotographyThen it’s the legal stuff. Never has signing a piece of paper looked quite so much fun.

Belize-Beach-Wedding-Destination-PhotographerOf course, before we head off for some photography with just the couple, we have the requisite group shot. This was a very very naughty group.

Belize-Coco-Beach-Wedding-Photography-That’s because they were hungry and thirsty. This is what was awaiting while the couple had their own personal shoot with us.

Coco Beach Belize Wedding PhotographyAnd this!

Wedding-in-Belize---San-Pedro-PhotographerThat dress. OMG. We had to just indulge ourselves with one photo of this amazing bride and one of our favourite dresses ever.

Belize-Wedding-PhotographySo now we’ll show you some of the two of them together. We’d just like to point out that when the groom makes an effort to look as good as the bride (OK, maybe not as good…but hey, she looked really, really good) on their special day, it really shows and we love it.

Belize-WeddingWhether they are walking along the beach, hand in hand – just relaxing…

Ambergris-Caye-Wedding-Photographer-Belize…or when he’s inside the mouth of a whale, while she’s riding on top of it. What!? Yes, you’d be surprised at some of the cute and mysterious things you’ll find in San Pedro.

Destination-Belize-Wedding-PhotographerWhether he’s making her smile in just that way that makes you wonder what he might have just whispered into her ear or…

Destination-Wedding-Belize…maybe he just reminded her about the food waiting back at the reception because she’s looking hungry.

Belize-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-San-PedroJust in case she’s getting too weak from the hunger, he happily gives her a piggy back ride.

Belize-Destination-Wedding-Ambergris-Caye-PhotographerBut suddenly, it seems the hunger has overwhelmed him too. This is always when the photographer needs to step in…

Belize-Beach-WeddingThey need some refreshments to help them keep up their strength for that one last shot. You know? The one that every couple dreams of when they get married in the Caribbean.

Belize-Wedding-PhotographerYep. That’s the one alright!

Destination-Belize-Wedding-Photographer-Coco-BeachIt’s time to head back to the party with all their loved ones. And what a party it is! Before the night was out though – they had one very important message they wanted to share.

Destination-Wedding-in-BelizeBecause they truly …

Wedding-Photographer-Belize(how could they not?)

Belize-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-ConchCreative-We think this sums it all up. True love in Belize always sparkles.

Big thanks to the wonderful team at the fabulous Coco Beach Resort for organising and hosting this fun and love filled day


All You Need is Love – But a Gorgeous Dress Helps Too – Belize Weddings

Belize Destination Wedding

Belize Destination Wedding There was a famous bunch of guys who sang a popular song. It was called ‘All You Need Is Love’. Now if they had mentioned a fabulous dress, as well, the song would have been absolutely perfect for destination weddings in Belize.

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

Angels of Belize – Belize Weddings

Wedding Photographer in Belize - Destination Wedding Photography BelizeAs we’re coming to the end of an amazing 2014 and about to start an even more fabulous 2015, we felt that this wedding was a perfect fit to review all of the things that make Ambergris Caye so special, not only to us as wedding photographers in Belize, but also to the sweet, kind, fun, beautiful and loved up clients we’ve been lucky enough to work with.  So, we’ll start with an easy one.  Belize is, of course, known for it’s beautiful scenery, tropical beaches and Caribbean waters.

Sweetness and Delight – Belize Weddings

Belize Wedding PhotographyIf you know Conch Creative, you know that we specialise in beautiful, barefoot, beach weddings in Belize.  We work with a lot of amazing couples and in the most fabulous locations, but every so often a couple comes along who are just so sweet with the way they express their love for each other and their sheer delight about their wedding that we end up saying ‘Awwww.  Aren’t they adorable?’  when we look through their photos. This is one of those couples.

Coco Loco – Belize Weddings

Belize Wedding PhotographerBelize weddings are known for lots of things.  Beautiful resorts, beaches, palm trees and fun fun fun.  As wedding photographers in Belize, Conch Creative prides itself on working with the couples who not only want an amazing photo experience and stunning images, but whose first and absolute priority is to have a great time and as much fun as possible.  So, please join us on this wedding photography journey to see exactly how much fun it is possible to have at a wedding in Belize and how easy it is to go ‘coco loco’.

Ambergris Caye Wedding

One guaranteed way to have fun in Belize is to get to know the locals.  Belizeans love to celebrate and they always get excited when they see other people having fun on the beach. One of our lovely friends (she knows who she is) happened to be heading home after a hard day’s work at a well known local dive shop.  She stopped to congratulate the couple and before we knew it, they were on her motorbike.

Wedding Ambergris CayeRemember how much fun it was to make shadows on the walls when you were a kid.  Well, guess what…you can do that when you are a grown up too!

Wedding Ambergris CayeWe mustn’t forget the ‘OMG We just did it!’ moment.

Ambergris Caye PhotographerGetting mucky in the sand and seaweed is great fun.  Nothing like sandy feet to remind you that you just got hitched in the Caribbean.

Ambergris Caye WeddingOk.  Maybe running hand in hand along the beach and splashing in the turquoise sea would also remind you that you just got married in Belize.

Ambergris Caye WeddingJust because you’re married, doesn’t mean you have to behave like a grown up.

San Pedro PhotographerClimbing on large machinery.  Seriously, what is more fun than that?

Ambergris Caye WeddingThe great thing about growing up is that you can have grown up fun too!

Ambergris Caye PhotographerSo for goodness’ sake, it’s a beach wedding.  Have fun kissing under the swaying palms.

Ambergris Caye Wedding - Coco Beach ResortAnd then, strike a pose.

Ambergris Caye WeddingWhen it’s all over, simply have fun relaxing.

This beautiful wedding was hosted by Coco Beach Resort Resort.

If you had as much fun reading our blog as we had making it, you’ll absolutely love the previews, sneak peeks and cheeky comments on our Facebook page

We’d just like to thank Belize, yet again, for being so beautiful, so friendly and so much fun!


Island Time for Barefoot Brides in Belize

Time for some more barefoot bliss on the beautiful Belize beaches with a bodacious bride and her handsome groom.

Someone forgot to tell the groom that no one wears watches in Belize.  Island time means that there is no stress.

With no clock watching and surrounded by tropical paradise, time seems to fly by.  Before you know it, you’re legal!

You may kiss that bride!

Within the concept of island time, there is time to romance on the long hardwood docks, overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

There’s time to get cool in the pool…

..and after you’ve warmed up again, who knows how else you might just fill your time.  Come to Belize and make your wedding photography dreams come true.

Many thanks to Coco Beach Resort for hosting and organising this romantic barefoot wedding on Ambergris Caye.


A Gal & a Guitar – Gettin’ Hitched in Belize

Wedding BelizeConch Creative loves destination weddings in Belize.  People who choose to marry in Belize tend to be people who like to step outside of ‘the box’ and like to do things just a little bit differently – and definitely their own way.  This makes every wedding unique and often very entertaining for us.  We’re going to share one of our recent favourites with you so that you can experience a true intimate and fun, barefoot wedding in Belize.

Wedding Ambergris CayeAs we’re sure you’ve figured – both the ‘gal’ and the guitar feature heavily in this blog.  Before the ceremony, our lovely and very romantic groom serenaded his bride to be.  It was beyond sweet and you could tell how much she adored him.

Wedding San Pedro BelizeMany couples choose Belize because they don’t want all of the fuss and stress associated with a traditional wedding.  This is a perfect example of how simplicity can be so special.  Marrying in a heart made from flowers and conch shells on a tranquil beach, overlooking the Caribbean Sea is perfectly divine.

Beach wedding BelizeHaving your new husband and the man you love sing romantic love songs to you in the heart of flowers, overlooking the Caribbean Sea as you delicately drink wine is beyond divine – it’s sublime.

Wedding Ambergris CayeWhoops…scratch the bit about ‘delicately drinking wine’…..woohoo – now things are going to get lively it seems.  Let’s see how this blog turns out, shall we?

Beach Wedding BelizeWe thought it was time for a quiet walk down the beach.  Honestly, how many places are there in the world where you can have beaches like this virtually all to yourselves?

Ambergris Caye PhotographyTime to catch a quick breath before the fun begins.

Trash the Dress Photography BelizeDid we mention it was hot that day?

Ambergris Caye Photography..and it seemed to just get a bit warmer by the minute.

wedding BelizeYou really have to wonder just how much fun two adults can have with a bit of water…

Belize photographer..it seems that the possibilities of having fun in water, following a wedding, fully clothed are quite limitless.  There’s no point in coming to Belize to have a fabulous wedding on a stunning beach in a tropical setting and not making the absolute most of it.  As well as producing beautiful photographs, Conch Creative aims to help all of our wedding couples have fun.

Wedding Belize

There comes a time (usually sunset), when wedding photographers quietly fade into the darkness and leave the couple to enjoy their time together.  We have no doubt that the assistance of Conch Creative was not required for the continuing fun.

We hope you enjoyed our most recent blog as much as we enjoyed making it.  Of course, you can always join in the fun by becoming part of our Conch Creative community on Facebook.  It’s easy – just click this Link.

If you’re wondering where that fantastic wedding was held, well as always we’re proud to have worked with the quite fantabulous Coco Beach Resort.

We’ll be blogging again soon and would love to hear from you.  Would you rather see brides or bikinis?
