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.
