Feel Free Enough to Get Hooked in Belize – Belize Wedding Photography

belize-engagement-photography-1As destination wedding photographers in Belize, we are always eternally grateful that we get to share important moments in people’s lives while they are visiting this stunning country, we call home.

photography-in-belize-engagementThere are many things that are so very special about the beautiful country, commonly referred to as ‘the jewel’. One of the things that people say most often after visiting is that they have never seen water as clear and dazzlingly turquoise as they have in Belize.

engagement-rings-belizephotographerOther people discover Belize and become repeat visitors because of the fishing. Belize is one of the only places, maybe the only place, where it is absolutely possible to get what fisherman call the ‘Grand Slam’, which is so elusive, in one single day. Belize recognises this and protects its fishing grounds fiercely. It’s all catch and release.

belize-engagement-photographerFishing isn’t all there is to do in Belize. With the water sport lifestyle available in a tropical climate, year round, boats are for pleasure as much as they are for sport.

belize-engagement-photographer-san-pedroThe exquisite beauty of Belize never ends, even as the sun sets.

belize-engagement-photographyThose are just some of the reasons we think that Belize is becoming such a popular place for proposals. Thankfully that’s one activity which isn’t catch and release!

belize-engagement-photographer-ambergris-cayeThere’s something that frees the spirit of those who visit Belize. So many people around the world dream about the sort of playful and joyous experiences that can be had in such an amazing place.

Love Across Nations – Belize Wedding Photography

trash-the-dress-in-belize-photographer

There’s no doubt that Belize is probably one of the most understandably desirable destination wedding locations in the world. This means that we get couples from across the globe traveling to this jewel of a country to celebrate one of the most special and important days of their lives. In this case, Belize wasn’t just a ‘destination’ for our groom – it was home. For the glamorous bride, all the way from Poland, it was the opportunity to learn more about her gorgeous groom and his heritage. As one of our favourite events this year, filled with love, laughter, spontaneity, beauty and joy, we thought it was a perfect wedding to share with you as we round off 2016.

belize-wedding-at-ramons-photographerThis is when things start to get real. You’re wearing a robe with ‘Bride’ written across the back of it, your Mum looks like she might burst out crying, you have a veil on your head and there is a wedding dress on the back of the door.

belize-photographer-weddings-brideLast minute decisions? Hat or veil? When a bride looks like a movie star, anything can happen.

destination-belize-wedding-photographySo, it looks like she went with the veil. We approve. What a perfect setting though. Seriously? Does it get any more perfect?

wedding-photography-in-belizeWhen there is true love, there is always laughter.

destination-beach-wedding-in-belizeAnd silliness.

wedding-in-belize-beach-photographyAnd tons and tons of joy!

belize-wedding-photographerDid we mention the perfect setting already? Well, it’s worthy of emphasising that point. The thing is, there are beautiful skies in many places and even beautiful beaches, but Belize is unique and with the help of this couple, who found love across nations, we’re going to show you why.

wedding-belize-photographerHave you ever spent the night under a real thatched roof? No? Well, you can do that in Belize.

wedding-photography-belizeYou can also find yourself a handsome and romantic Belizean guy. Though this one is most definitely off the market.

belize-destination-wedding-photographerHe’s going to want to show you around town though.

belize-wedding-san-pedro-photographerSo, he’ll introduce you to some of the local wildlife.

destination-wedding-photography-ambergris-cayeHe’ll take you for a spin in his fancy car.

wedding-photographer-beach-wedding-belizeHe’ll show you off to some of the other guys in town.

wedding-photographer-in-belizeAnd take you for some of the best shopping.

ambergris-caye-wedding-photographerHe’ll look for some prime real estate with you.

beach-wedding-belize-photographerAnd when you laugh at his antics…

trash-the-dress-in-belize-photographer-san-pedro…he’ll sweep you off your feet…

belize-destination-wedding-photographer-san-pedro…and he’ll make sure that you fall in love Belize just as much as you fell in love with him.

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.


Lovely Love – Belize Weddings

Beach-Wedding-Photographer-in-BelizeThere’s nothing a wedding photographer loves more than when all of the elements conspire to create a perfect day for their couple. This was one of those weddings. Absolutely lovely in every way.

Belize-Wedding-Bride-PhotographerYou will often see us raving about the beautiful dresses that our brides choose. A dress is a true expression of the bride’s personal style. This one struck such a perfect balance, modest yet sexy as well as being light, flowy and perfectly comfortable for a beach wedding.

Belize-Photographer-WeddingsWe also try very hard to encourage grooms to make that extra effort. If the bride is going to take the time to look stunning on this very important day… a day when both partners are committing their hearts to each other forever… then it would certainly seem that the groom should do the same.

Victoria-House-Belize-Wedding-PhotographerWhen it all comes together, it’s just…well…sublime.

Wedding-Belize---PhotographerSo, let’s rewind a little bit so that you can join us for this gorgeous island wedding. May we present the beautiful bride.

Wedding-Photography-Belize-Victoria-House-San-PedroWaiting pensively, is the gorgeous groom.

Wedding-Destination-Belize-PhotographyDon’t forget about the rings, strategically located. We are ‘Conch Creative’, after all.

Destination-Wedding-Photography-Belize Including the people you adore just means even more love to go round.

Sand-Ceremony-Wedding-Photographer-BelizeWhen you get married on an island, having a sand ritual so that you’ll always have a piece of the place you said your vows with you, wherever you go, is something that is so special and unique.

Belize-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-Conch-CreativeThere is probably nothing lovelier than smiles that are brimming over with love.

Belize-Beach-Wedding-PhotographerOK. We have to admit. The view and a couple of bottles of everyone’s favourite local beer can help to make it just a little bit lovelier.

Belize-Wedding-Photographer-San-PedroWe feel it’s important to allow our couples to enjoy this jewel of an island in the Caribbean Sea and so we encourage them to take some time to relax and take in the scenery after the excitement of their wedding.

Belize-Wedding-PhotographerThe many textures of Belize…

Beach-Wedding-Belize-Photography…and the many coconut trees. Hey, coconuts are lovely too.

Wedding-Photographer-BelizeSo, all we can say is that if you are in love and you’re planning your destination wedding…

Wedding-Photographer-in-Belize…Belize is probably the loveliest place in the world.

Special thanks to the incredibly lovely Victoria House Resort which hosted and organised a fabulously lovely wedding for these two very lovely people.


A Tale of Two Dresses and One Temple – Belize Wedding

Mayan-Ruins-Wedding-BelizeBelize used to be hailed as ‘Mother Nature’s Best Kept Secret’ and in some ways it still is, but it’s becoming one of those uniquely desirable destinations for weddings. That’s because you can do things in Belize that you simply can’t do anywhere else. Belize is still mostly covered by jungle, a young country with a wild heart. There truly is no place like Belize and for that we are grateful. This begs the question from some, who contact us about having an adventure, a once in a lifetime experience of a wedding in Belize – is it safe?

Belize-Wedding-Photographer- Belize Photographer

Well, see that ledge right there? The one with no railing?  Yep, that’s the one. It’s 130′ straight down from there. And if that doesn’t get your blood pumping, then we’ll just make sure you feel absolutely reassured.

Wedding-Photography-in-Belize-XunantunichYou’ll have these handsome fellows right there to make sure nothing happens.  Our clients get the very best Belize has to offer.

Maya-Ruins-Wedding-Photographer-in-BelizeSo, to help you decide if you have a true desire for something different, a taste for something ancient and exotic and a spirit for an audacious wedding that will span centuries, cultures and countries, we’re going to invite you to join us as a our guest for one of these special celebrations.

Wedding-XunantunichThe couple were lucky enough to have family members to help. When we say this is an adventure, we’re not kidding. See that sign – Xunantunich 1 mile? That’s where we are heading. You may notice something else. There is a white bundle and a red bundle. Well, this couple knew that this was a once in a lifetime opportunity and they were going to make the most of it. That’s why this is a tale of two dresses. Get ready for the romantic adventure to commence.

Belize-Cayo-Xunantunich-WeddingThis is how you get to the site. This is a hand cranked ferry. By ‘hand cranked’ we mean that a man actually cranks the wheel that pulls the ferry across the river. All aboard!

Belize-Wedding-CayoFortunately, there are some very spacious changing facilities at Xunantunich, which we should mention is a 1400 year old Maya archaeological site. The changing rooms are not quite that old.

Destination-Mayan-Ruins-Wedding-PhotographyThe spectacular white dress is topped with a stunning necklace. Everything looks so traditional…

Wedding-Xunxntunich-Belize-Maya-Ruins-Photographer…until you see where the bride and groom are about to be joined in marriage.

Belize-Wedding-PhotographerUnconventional? Perhaps. Stunning, glorious, awe inspiring and unforgettable? Without a doubt.

Wedding-Photographer-BelizeAnd while exchanging rings is something we’re used to seeing at most weddings…

Mayan-Ruins-Wedding-Photographer-Belize…this is not your typical wedding portrait.

Belize-Wedding-at-XunantunichEnter, the red dress. Now it’s time for the drama to commence and there can be no more dramatic background.

Mayan-Ruins-Belize-Wedding-PhotographerWhere Belize and Guatemala meet, somewhere in the rain forest and mountains.

Mayan-Ruins-Wedding-Photography-BelizeWhere you can climb an ancient temple, decorated with ancient tales about the birth of gods and the ‘tree of life’.

Wedding-Belize-Mayan-RuinsWhere you can explore entrances to what was once a ceremonial centre for around 200,000 Maya people.

Maya-Ruins-Photography-Wedding-Cayo-BelizeWhere you can look down upon a ball court where those who lost the ritual game, also lost their lives.

Belize-Wedding-Photographer-Mayan-Ruins-XunantunichWhere you’ll look at each other at the end of one of the most breathtakingly, mind-blowing days of your lives and know that you shared this experience that will bind you together forever.

20 Photos That Gave Us That Happy Feeling in 2015 – Belize Weddings (and other cute pictures)

We’ve never done this before, but 2015 was such an amazing year for us here in Belize that we wanted to thank our clients and everyone who has supported us and enjoyed our work by sharing our favourite photos of 2015. Yes, we know, this blog is a wedding photography blog, but we also enjoy other types of photography. We chose the photos in this collection because they brought back great memories and made us smile. We’d like to share those memories and hopefully some smiles with you too. So, sit down, relax and enjoy.

We can’t help but start with this one. This would typically be a photographer’s worst nightmare, but this couple were so much fun and we had so many laughs with them during their shoot that this was sort of the icing on the cake (apologies for the really poor metaphor under the circumstances).

Wedding Photography in Belize

Dog photobombing was obviously trending this year and we don’t mind one bit. We are dog lovers and most of our couples seem to be too!

Destination Wedding Photographer in Belize - Photography Belize

Dogs weren’t the only photobombers this year though from the animal world. While we were working on a commercial shoot for a resort here, this little guy popped in to say hello.

1511411_10153444393198210_6409467146028609196_n

This couple almost got bombed quite literally by the closest thing we have in Belize to an Air Force.

Belize wedding - photography

Speaking of bombing, it wasn’t all being done by animals either. This has got to be one of our favourite memories from the year when this fabulous lady decided that ‘when I’m 64’, I’m going to get photographed jumping into the Caribbean Sea butt naked – and so she did! An inspiration to us all.

when I'm 64

This photo won us a Fearless Award, but really the award should have gone to this brilliant couple for being the best Trash the Dress good sports ever. We remember this shoot vividly, especially the smell of the mud, which we must admit, did not smell of roses. At. All. So much fun and so dirty. We’ll never, ever forget this shoot!

Fearless TTD

Fortunately, for this next couple, their Fearless Award winning Trash the Dress photo wasn’t quite so mucky, but we do remember that they weren’t feeling too hot the morning after some very, very hard celebrating. Didn’t stop them looking fabulous though and again, such good sports for going for it even though they would have much rather have been in bed.

fearless 5

Of course the bridesmaids don’t have any obligation at all to be sober or to participate fully in producing award winning shots – which is why they are so much fun to photograph.

bridesmaids belikin

The next one is from of one of those weddings that we’ll always remember because even now, we get a bit teared up remembering it. It was one of our most popular blogs ever.  A wedding for three, when this little girl participated in such a special day. A beautiful family and such a heartwarming memorable experience for us.

Belize-Wedding-Photographer-conch-creative

Of course, if we are going to start talking about little girls, how could we forget this one? It’s hard to imagine getting much cuter.

Wedding Photographer in Belize

We were even lucky enough to photograph one little girl before she was ever born. Her mother was incredibly athletic and quite fearless, so with some imagination and creativity on our part and a lot of bendiness on her part, we created a maternity image that was totally unique.

marisa

We didn’t just get babies before they were born, we got weddings before they were engaged. We’ve worked with a number of grooms on proposals and they are always so much fun. Trying to plot and plan while hoping that she’s going to say ‘yes’ is about as nerve wracking for us as it is for the groom. This one was just perfect and we were absolutely thrilled for the happy couple.

yes

In some cases, we’re there for a long time.  One of our most unforgettable couples came back a few years after we photographed their wedding so that we could photograph their simply adorable little boy. It’s very special for photographers when they can document lives over the years.

Belize Photoghrapher

Ultimately, it all returns to what we do best and that’s to get love to come through a photo. That’s why wedding photography works so well for us.

Belize Wedding Photographer

When you know the smiles are real, that’s what makes all the difference and makes us remember the moment we took that particular photo.

Wedding Photography in Belize

People’s personalities are what we remember most of all.  You simply never forget moments like this.

Belize Destination Wedding

When people get into our island vibe and want to have fun, anything is possible.

12239357_10153740764958210_7200706956401082804_o

Wedding photography is a collaborative experience. While we create memories for our couples through photography, they too, create memories for us with their most intimate and joyful moments.

Maybe sometimes a little bit more intimate than we anticipated.

And for that we send you all much love and happiness in 2016.

Special thanks to all the businesses, resorts and individuals who invited Conch Creative into their lives, hearts and properties to make memories in 2015!  Wish wish you all the most wonderful New Year!


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 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 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.

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.

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 it..it’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.

Sun+Sea+Sand+Celebration = Perfect Destination Wedding – Belize Wedding

Trash the Dress Wedding Photographer in BelizeTwo questions that we encounter frequently as destination wedding photographers in Belize – 1. Why do people have destination weddings? and 2. Why do people come to Belize for destination weddings?  Even if those questions have never occurred to you before, we bet they are now stuck in your mind. Thank goodness Conch Creative is here to answer those very important questions.

Destination Wedding In Belize _ Belize PhotographyPeople have destination weddings for all sorts of reasons, but in our experience, the most common is so that they and their loved ones can truly relax and let their hair down..or in this case, maybe relaxing a little bit too much, while the bride watches one of her bridesmaids having her hair put up.  Sorry to be confusing.  But the point is that destination wedding couples do not want the stress and drama that can come with a traditional wedding at home.

Belize Wedding Photographer - Belize Beach WeddingWhat could be more fun and relaxing than a barefoot wedding on a sandy beach, overlooking the Caribbean?

Belize Destination Wedding PhotographyYou don’t have to worry about whether or not you’ll get blisters because the only thing on your feet will be sand, and in the case of fashionable barefoot brides, some very pretty jewelry.

Belize Wedding PlacenciaIn the interest of not being sexist, we feel obliged to point out that the men had very nice jewelry too.

Beach Wedding Belize PhotographyNow for question number 2.  Why Belize?  Well first of all, you can’t get Belizean Belikin beer anywhere else.  Even if you could, we believe that it couldn’t possibly taste the same drunk anywhere but Belize.

Wedding Belize - Photographer BelizeWhile we wouldn’t want to be accused of misleading anyone, we are also of the understanding (as reported to us by our couples) that cake also tastes better in Belize.  Yes, we realise this may be quite unbelievable, but apparently it’s true.

Wedding Photographer in Belize - Beach Wedding PlacenciaTruly though, what other things make Belize such a perfect place for a destination wedding?  What many people don’t know is that Belize, unlike many other destinations, has kept all of its beaches public.  So, you have access to miles and miles of beautiful, natural and untouched Caribbean coastline.

Destination Belize Wedding PhotographerPeople in Belize are friendly and welcoming to visitors.  You can find yourself a sunny spot and just relax and no one will bother you – except that pesky photographer, who keeps following you everywhere.

Wedding Photographer BelizeBecause Belize has such a small population, you can kiss on the beach in the daytime and never have an audience – except that photographer again!

Belize Wedding Photographer - Belize WeddingYou can also kiss on the beach at night, in the glowing light of tiki torches, which miraculously appear whenever there is a wedding.

Destination Wedding Photographer BelizeDid you know that Belize makes you love each other more?  It’s a well documented fact supported by studies conducted by Conch Creative.

Trash the Dress Photography BelizeYou may think we’re joking.  But we’re not.  Belize does affect people in very different ways.  People who appear perfectly normal in the beautiful sunrise…

Wedding Photography  - Trash the Dress Belize…suddenly find themselves leaping into the air for no obvious reason.

Belize Destination Wedding Trash the DressAnother example is that one minute a couple will be standing, romantically, with the water flowing around their toes..and then before you know it….

Trash the Dress in Belize Photographer…they are soaking wet and frolicking like young lambs in the sea.  Maybe not like lambs.  Lambs don’t often go in the sea. Maybe more like young dolphins or fish or sea horses.

Trash the Dress - Belize - Wedding PhotographerSo while we wholeheartedly recommend destination beach weddings in Belize, we now have given you fair warning.  When in Belize, you may just find yourselves having far too much fun.

Wedding Photography in BelizeSo ‘reflect’ (get it ..reflect..hahaha…never mind) carefully on your decision.  Because…..

Trash the Dress Wedding Photography in Belize…no one could ever possibly want this much fun at their wedding, now, would they?

Conch Creative would like to thank the magic of Belize for making this wedding super special.

This beautiful and fun wedding in Placencia was organised by Lee Nyhus of Placencia Weddings and hosted by Coco Plum Villas

PSA- If you want a stressful wedding and no fun at all, do not come to Belize
