elopement in Parrot Cay

I recently had the pleasure of photographing a secluded elopement in Parrot Cay, one of the finest islands of the Turks and Caicos. Anett and Miklos are a couple who spend half of each year living in New York for work and the other half in their home country of Hungary. With the intention of doing a larger wedding in Hungary later with family and friends, they first chose to get away together for a more secretive and intimate beach wedding at a beautiful private villa in Parrot Cay.

On March 15th, I took a twenty-five minute private resort ferry to the island where I met Nadia, the lovely wedding planner, who was waiting for me at the dock. After a short drive to their private and very beautiful villa, I met Anett and Miklos and knew straight away that not only was this going to be a special day, it was going to be a fun day!

The wedding ceremony took place on the beach in front of their private villa. Seeing as it was just the two of them, we could afford to start the ceremony a bit later. After the ceremony, we had plenty of time to take photos along the beach and as the weather was faultless, we even had the chance to fly our drone for some extra special aerial pictures.

Following a beautiful sunset and a fun wedding shoot, it was time for me to make my way back to the marina to catch the private resort ferry back to the island of Providenciales.

Wedding on Leeward Beach

What we love about weddings here in the islands is that we go from the over two hundred guests weddings, to couples only weddings where the wedding takes place on Leeward Beach. Leeward beach is a very private beach here in Providenciales and so suitable for the smaller, intimate weddings.

Big destination wedding at Beaches

It is always fun to be a part of a big destination wedding at Beaches, Turks and Caicos. When I met with Mike and Kimberly to discuss their plans for their big day and the celebrations before and after, I knew it was going to be an energetic and busy two-day event.

The bride and groom arranged a boat trip for their party the day before the wedding. All the guests had the perfect opportunity to get to know one another whilst relaxing and enjoying the sunshine, some even experiencing snorkeling before stopping at a deserted island and then heading back to the hotel.

On the big day, we began with photos of the bridal party and the groomsmen getting ready in their rooms at Beaches Turks and Caicos. It was fun to photograph Mike receiving his gift from Kimberly – a pair of Air Jordan which she had had engraved with their initials (a perk of working for the Nike Jordan brand!).

The wedding ceremony took place on Grace Bay Beach in front of the hotel. The turquoise waters provided a beautiful back drop for photos and whilst the wedding party moved on to the reception area, I was able to photograph the newly weds before the sun began to set.

The wedding reception took place around a section of the French Village pool. After the first dance, some lovely food and great speeches, it was time to party and this group knew how to party! At the end of the night, most of the guests even ended up in the pool before moving on to the nightclub for stage two of the celebrations.

Here are just a few of the many photos that were taken during the wedding day.

Turks and Caicos trash the wedding dress

A couple of days after we photographed the wedding of Nikki and Peter at the beautiful private villas of Grace Bay Club on Grace Bay beach, it was time to ‘trash the wedding dress’. This is one of our favorite photo shoots to do here in the Turks & Caicos because we both love to be under water taking photos.

For the first part of the shoot we wanted to capture the turquoise colors of our beautiful waters.  We chose the Leeward end of Grace Bay beach; the perfect location for color and seclusion plus as this was a morning session, the colors were even brighter and more vibrant.  The water was a little rough that morning but it actually helped us to create some very cool images. It was a good job Nikki and Peter weren’t afraid of getting hit by the waves 🙂

As we needed calmer waters for the second part of the session we decided to take a short drive to the other side of the islands. Long Bay beach was the perfect spot as the ocean was flat calm with crystal clear water.  Nikki and Peter had a blast getting into the water with their clothes on and after doing some split shots (half underwater, half above water) it was time to go fully underwater 🙂 A difficult task because Nikki’s dress and Peter’s jacket were very buoyant, making it impossible to stay under the water for longer than three seconds but three seconds was all that was needed to capture one good picture!

After a few more images and lots of laughs it was time to end the session and get back to the Grace Bay Club. Here are a few images from their Turks & Caicos ‘trash the wedding dress’….

Grace Bay Club wedding: Melodie and Runar

Melodie and Runar’s  Grace Bay Club wedding started off with quite a bit of rain before the actual ceremony began but that didn’t stop this bride and groom and their small wedding party from having a great time getting ready.
Melodie and Runar came all the way from Norway to the beautiful Turks & Caicos to have their destination wedding. From all the many beautiful islands around the world, they knew this was the perfect little spot to celebrate their wedding day.
Their wedding took place on May 10th on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Grace Bay beach. A very small group of family and friends traveled a long way to celebrate this very special day with the bride and groom.
Even though the afternoon got off to a rather wet start under some big grey clouds, we ended up having one of the best sunsets I have seen this year. It was the perfect ending to this beautiful destination wedding.

Turks & Caicos elopement, Arati & Ankur Patel.

Ankur first met his Bride-to-be, Arati, whilst they were both on vacation in Turkey. After getting engaged and looking at potential locations for a very small wedding, they decided to elope to the beautiful Turks & Caicos Islands.
On April 23rd, a couple of hours before the wedding, I met with the Bride and Groom at their villa. We took a drive around the island to get some colourful images before heading to meet with with the wedding officiate.
Arati and Ankur wanted to have some images taken with their traditional Indian clothes first and then some with regular beach clothing before getting into their wedding attire.
Their wedding ceremony took place at the end of Grace Bay beach just before sunset.
Here are a few images from the shoot…

The wedding of Monica and David at the Alexandra Resort

A few weeks ago I was very fortunate to photograph the beautiful destination wedding of Monica and David at the Alexandra Resort.

Monica and David looked for other possible islands to celebrate they destination wedding but they finally decided that the Turks & Caicos Islands were the perfect location.

Their Wedding ceremony took place on Grace Bay beach just a few feet away from the very calm turquoise waters these islands have to offer.

Monica and David and all their guest enjoyed of the wedding reception on the Alexandra Resort beach deck.
