Bridget & Paul ♥ Cuba, Caribbean
Photographer: Iberostar Varadero – Mayrelys Benitez Herrera
Bridget and Paul jetted off to the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean to say ‘I do’, or ‘Si’ in this case! The location choice for their destination wedding was the 20 kilometre stretch of white sandy beach which is Varadero in Cuba.
This stunning tropical setting with year-round blue skies created a colourful Caribbean backdrop to their relaxed, destination wedding day.
“We are not that traditional so we knew we didn’t want to get married in a church and the cost for a UK wedding was quite high so we decided on going abroad. Originally we looked at Europe but with some destinations you have to have been in the country for so long beforehand and we found it was cheaper in the Caribbean. Cuba was recommended to us by the groom’s brother and there was lots to do to suit everyone.”
“We did have a bit of trouble convincing some of our family, but we had decided so nothing was going to stop us! It was our day after all and this was what we really wanted.”
