Grace Bay beach destination wedding

The first time I met with Andrea and Daniel was at their beautiful private villa to talk about their upcoming small Grace Bay beach destination wedding.
After chatting for a few minutes with bride and groom and some of their family members, I knew this was going to be a beautiful beach destination wedding to capture.
Andrea and Daniel wanted a very intimate wedding with just very close friends and family members and the Turks & Caicos Islands was the ideal place to do their destination wedding. Keisha Delancy from Destination TCI helped the bride and groom with all the planning for their wedding day.
After looking for different beach location for their wedding ceremony, the bride and groom finally found the perfect location and that was Grace Bay beach next to the beautiful Point Grace boutique resort . This stunning yet small resort has some gorgeous  gardens for photography and the beach is always very quiet, making it the perfect location to celebrate small wedding ceremonies.
Andrea and Daniel got married on March 31st, an hour before sunset on the most beautiful beaches in the world, Grace Bay beach. After their wedding ceremony and toasts to the happy couple, it was time to do a few photos with Andrea and Daniel on the beach just as the sun was beginning to set. This is the perfect time of the day for the best soft light for photography.
Andrea and Daniel and all their wedding guests moved on to celebrate their wedding reception at Hemingways Restaurant located on the hart of Grace Bay beach, just a few minutes along from where their wedding ceremony took place.
Here are a few images from their wedding day…

Somerset Resort wedding. Michelle and Neal

We first met with Michelle and Neal in August when they were making plans and preparations for their upcoming wedding to be held at the beautiful Somerset Resort in the Turks & Caicos Islands.

After hearing and seeing how excited the bride and groom were for their big destination wedding which would take place in the heart of Grace Bay, I knew this was going to be a great wedding to capture.

Michelle and Neil had family and friends traveling from all over the world to be a part of their special day. The Turks and Caicos was to be the perfect location to bring everyone together, almost one hundred guests in total, to celebrate in style with Michelle and Neal.

On the actual wedding day, Anita and I began shooting photos of Michelle and Neil getting ready in separate rooms in their large suite. What many of the guests didn’t know was that Michelle and Neil were planning to do a first look at the close by resort of The Palms before the ceremony took place. The big surprise was for Neal because he didn’t know that his wife-to-be would be wearing stunning traditional Indian clothes instead of the white dress that she was originally going to wear for the ceremony.

The wedding ceremony took place on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Grace Bay, just a few feet away from beautiful turquoise waters and with the Somerset resort behind them.

After the ceremony on the beach, we had just enough time to photograph the family members and close friends, all of whom were overjoyed for the happy couple. The hot sun gradually started to set over the tranquil ocean and everyone was ready for the next part of the wedding, the wedding reception.

Michelle and Neal’s wedding reception took place a few feet away from the beautiful driftwood wedding arch where they had said their ‘I do’s’ just moments before. DJ Dayoh was the one in charge of getting everyone onto the dance floor which was a specially made wooden structure just begging to be partied on.

The wedding party was scheduled to finish at 11pm but it went on for a little longer as none of the guests wanted to stop dancing! We were all enjoying a great night in the company of great people.

Many thanks to:

Tendra Musgrove from Villa del Mar . All the wonderful staff at the Somerset Resort. Flowers: Flowers by EA. Venue: The Somerset Resort . Music DJ Dayoh. Officiant: Pastor Wayde Coleby.

A trash the wedding dress at Grace Bay beach

Just a few days after I photographed the wedding of Kelly and Eric  Band at the Sands Resort we met once again but this time was for a fun ‘trash’ the wedding dress around some of favorite spots on the island.

For the first part of the shoot we went to Leeward beach to capture some images with the newly wedding couple with the amazing turquoise waters and the white sand beaches that the Turks & Caicos are so famous for as the perfect background.

Grace Bay beach was our next stop, here is where Kelly and Eric got to practice some of their underwater skills for the ‘trash’ the wedding dress, and they did an awesome job!

Here are a few images from their morning session…

The wedding of Inara and Daniel at the Seven Stars Resort

I first met Inara and Daniel during a quick engagement shoot in December 2014 in Blue Hills.  It was a very fun session; I got to know them and got a good idea of what their destination wedding was going to be.

Almost a year later after their last visit to the Turks & Caicos we met once again but this time it was to capture their destination wedding. The Seven Stars Resort was the chosen property to celebrate this very important day.

Their wedding ceremony took place on December 5th on the beautiful Grace Bay beach where fifty family members and very close friends came all the way to celebrate with their special day.  Teresa and her team from Tropical DMC did an outstanding job with the planning and preparations for an awesome wedding.

Inara and Daniel’s wedding reception took place on the Seven Stars beach deck where everyone had a blast dancing under the stars. Here are just a few images from their wedding day…

An underwater trash the dress shoot

I love photographing weddings and families portraits but the “trash” the dress shoot is one of my favorites, especially when we get the change to do underwater photos.

Ewelina and her husband Chris got married at the Seven Stars Resort and they decided to use our services for the “trash” the wedding dress shoot a few days after their wedding.

For the first part of the session we drove early morning to Leeward Beach to get some images with white sand and beautiful turquoise waters that makes the Turks & Caicos so popular.  For the second part we drove to Blue Hills to capture some images at the Conch Shark Restaurant and the old dock.

Smith’s Reef was our final destination for the underwater “trash” the dress. Here are a few images from their photo shoot….

The wedding of Aleksa & Mark Miller on Grace Bay

About two weeks ago I had the great opportunity to photograph a beautiful wedding at the end of Grace Bay beach.

After our first meeting with Aleksa and her mum Colleen at Villa Byculla, we knew this was going to be a fun wedding to capture. In addition to the regular photographs to be taken on the day, this bride and groom wanted to do some photos around the island and this is something that we really love doing.

On the wedding day Aleksa and Mark did a first look at their villa and then we drove to one of our favorite beaches on Provo, Leeward beach, to capture some of the amazing turquoise ocean colors.

Blue Hills was our second stop where we did some images around some of the older buildings and colorful sailboats that can be found in this area.

After some driving around the island it was time to get back to Grace Bay where their wedding ceremony began.

The wedding reception took place on the beach near Hemingway’s Restaurant. It was the perfect ending for Aleksa and Mark’s destination wedding.

Here are just a few images from their wedding day….
