Destination Wedding at Alexandra
Gorgeous Destination Wedding Photos
Mandy and Daniel are a fun and trendy couple from New York who wanted to have their Caribbean destination wedding on one of the finest beaches in the world. So, after looking around at some of the beautiful options they decided to have their wedding on the world famous Grace Bay beach in front of the Alexandra resort on Providenciales. They also wanted to hire the best wedding photographers on the island, so they chose Paradise Photography to document their special day.
The weather was amazing and the sunset equally spectacular. Their short one hour still image coverage started outside in a covered area at the restaurant. Everyone had already gathered at the site before we arrived. Guests and family were mingling and the wedding party was neatly cloistered inside the restaurant. The light was spectacular in this area. So we took a few casual shots of just the bride and the groom just before Daniel headed down to the beach for the start of the ceremony.
The ceremony was very unique because one of the guests was the officiant. There was even a small sand ceremony where Mandy and Daniel mixed different colored sand together in a small vase symbolizing the inextricable unity between the two. We then took them to a catamaran which was parked nearby and we did some very unique photos of the wedding party and the bride and groom. The sunset was beautiful and so were the photos of the two love birds. The shoot ended with some unexpected photo-journalistic images of the newlyweds walking hand in hand up and down the beach while a drone documented their every move just as the sun fell below the horizon.
