Wedding at Amazing Grace Villa Turks
Most of the weddings we photograph are at the islands major resorts. That’s why it’s always such a fun and unique experience to work with a couple that decides to host their wedding instead at one of the many incredible villas on Providenciales. Gerta and Gabriel did just that, hosting their 50 lucky guests at the stunning ‘Amazing Grace Villa,’ located across one of the most beautiful stretches of beach the Turks & Caicos has to offer.
I was already very familiar with the couple, having photographed their engagement pictures earlier in the year. I love being able to meet with couples early enough in their planning process to work with them both on their engagement pictures and on the wedding day itself. It gives me a chance to really get to know my subjects and how best to work with them, not to mention give them a chance to work with their wedding photographer! We got amazing images during the first session so I knew we would have no problem putting together a gorgeous album from their wedding.
The day started with a bit of drama given some unsightly weather in the morning. Ultimately everything worked out however and the conditions during the rest of the day couldn’t have been any better. Gerta looked absolutely stunning in her dress and moved so naturally during her pictures, her portraits had a natural and effortless beauty to them. Gabriel was only a little nervous but that didn’t stop him from looking like a spy during his own single portraits! The first look was full of emotion and captured beautifully in a outdoor flower-terrace hallway at the entrance of the villa. The ceremony proceeded smoothly into one of the most lively and fun receptions I have ever experienced! A surprise firework show from Tropical Destination Management and some elegant ending shots by the villa’s signature staircase made for a great end to a great wedding.
