Belize isn’t Mother Nature’s Best Kept Secret anymore. Once, a destination for back packers, adventurers and scuba divers in the know, Belize – with it’s upscale, boutique resorts, jungle lodges and eco tours – has become a favourite get away for a younger, hipper crowd. For couples that are just a little bit ‘rock-n-roll’, there can’t be many places more unique and mysterious than an ancient Maya ruin, steeped in folk lore and surrounded by pristine jungle – with the calls of prehistoric sounding howler monkeys calling in the distance and the aura of ancient spiritualism and folklore in the air.
So how do you enjoy a bit of romance and rock-n-roll at the ruins in Belize? You start by checking that everything looks perfect.
Then, with a flick of your fabulous frock, you head for….
How does a bride at one of the coolest locations get to her groom? On a hand pulled ferry of course – with villagers waiting to greet her on the other side. Sadly, this was our last wedding at Xunantunich Maya ruins with this ferry. Progress has arrived and there is now a brand new ferry. We’ll miss that old one!
Finally, on the ledge of a temple built 1500 years ago, our beautiful bride finds her groom. If we were younger, we might even say ‘what a sick location for a wedding’. (sick, which according to the urban dictionary means ‘exceeding all expectations of awesomeness)

If we were pretentious, we’d use this caption to ponder upon the juxtaposition of young, meeting old, connections and the cycle of life – but instead we’ll just say that if you don’t think Belize is a perfect place for romance, ruins and a bit of rock-n-roll, then this is a message for you….
This fabulous romantic and rock-n-roll wedding at the ruins was organised by the beautiful Ka’ ana Belize.
