Playacar is a five star gated resort area just south of Playa Del Carmen on Mexico’s Mayan Riviera. This luxurious gated community is home to a select number of high end all inclusive hotels and luxury condo complexes all sporting private white sand beachfront locations with unobstructed views of the crystal clear ocean (how much does that make you want to go on holiday?!).

 

Sara and Paul left their home of Canada behind and with their nearest and dearest beside them they journeyed to the tropical paradise of Playacar for an intimate wedding overlooking the beach. Pure destination wedding bliss!

Alisha & Dave   ♥   Maui, Hawaii

Photographer:   Karma Hill Photography

 

Sometimes you visit somewhere and you feel like you’ve seen it, you loved it, but you’ve ticked it off the list and there’s no desperate need to return. Some other times though, you visit somewhere and as soon as you leave you long to go back.

No matter how many days you had there, it just didn’t feel quite long enough and you can’t shake the feeling that maybe you missed something or that you’d simply like to hang out there a little bit more…

 

Where are those places for you? Hawaii is one that’s on my list, particularly Waikiki Beach, but the Hawaiian Islands on a whole, and so every time a destination wedding from Hawaii pops up in my inbox it’s like receiving a little taster of this tropical paradise all over again!

 

Alisha and Dave’s beautiful and intimate ocean view ceremony certainly epitomises the magic of these Pacific Ocean islands. Outdoors and beachside is the only place to be, relaxed and informal yet stunningly breathtaking is the way of the land here and their destination wedding was all of this and more. So take a peek at their cheerful coral themed wedding, it will leave you longing for a trip to Hawaii as much as me I’m sure!

It’s the first day of September (I know, how did that happen?!) which officially heralds the beginning of autumn here in the UK. Right on cue we are enduring a grey, wet and windy day weather-wise, however the holiday and destination wedding season is still in full swing…there’s always a pocket of sunshine to be found somewhere in the world!

 

So to brighten up this breezy day and to take our minds off the fact that winter is on its way, comes today’s beautiful beach wedding in the US Virgin Islands.

 

Christina and Adam left behind cool, foggy San Francisco and jetted off to the Caneel Bay Resort located within 170 lush acres of the Virgin Islands National Park. Spectacular azure waters and bleached white sand created a dreamy beach ceremony setting whilst pretty pops of turquoise and flashes of tropical pink gave a vibrant finish to this darling destination wedding.

Destination Wedding – Pretty Autumn Day In The Hudson River Valley

Jane & Michael   ♥   Hudson River Valley, New York

Photographer:   OLLI STUDIO

 

There’s been a touch of autumn in the air over the last few days in the UK. Torrential downpours and grey skies have been greeting us most mornings and once the sun finally came out yesterday afternoon there was a cool, fresh autumnal edge to the breeze and the pavements were strewn with yellow leaves where the trees must have mistaken the unseasonable weather for the beginning of fall.

 

Despite it signifying the end of summer, autumn is a lovely season and a gorgeous time of year for a wedding. Deep earthy shades can be teamed with pops of autumn brights – pumpkin orange and golden yellow and rich red leaves – to create a warm and romantic wedding theme.

 

Jane and Micheal jetted off to Upstate New York to create just this kind of cozy atmosphere for their wedding day. Their day was filled with crisp, bright sunlight and their venue didn’t disappoint with autumn-hued treetops and a dewy view over the Hudson River Valley as their backdrop. Cute personalised touches including pumpkins and scarecrows added to their pretty, rustic autumn theme.

 

Fingers crossed that the summer sunshine is going to return to us for a little while longer, but it is quite exciting that the lovely autumn months are just around the corner too…

Cora & Brian   ♥   Hudson River Valley, New York

Photographer:   Villetto Photography

 

There are so many beautiful areas in the state of New York. Venture beyond the dazzling lights of Manhattan and be charmed by the countryside and coastal regions that are only a stones throw away.

 

Cora and Brian LOVE the Hudson River Valley region, north of New York City, with its undeniable charisma and historical beauty and so it seemed like the perfect place for them to say ‘I Do,’ and I think that you’ll agree that they chose one of the most picturesque venues for their serene outdoor ceremony!

 

The enchanting Boscobel House and Gardens overlooks the Hudson River and is considered to be one of the finest examples of Federal-style architecture in New York. Doesn’t the majestic yellow house deliver everything that you could imagine a dream American wedding to be and more?

 

Beyond the regality of the ceremony venue, this darling duo ensured that their big day was a romantic-yet-relaxed affair. There’s infectious smiles and laughter to be seen on everyone’s faces and their wonderfully rustic reception ended with dance floor shenanigans and fun with the photo booth props!

 

If you think that New York could be the wedding destination for you, look beyond the bright lights of the big city, as there are so many fairytale venues to choose from just around the corner…

Destination Wedding – It’s Gonna Be A Bright Sunshiny Day In Bali

Bree & David   ♥   Bali, Indonesia

Photographer:   PhotoFactory Bali

 

The first thing I noticed when I opened up Bree and David’s beautiful destination wedding photos was the piercing clear-blue sky. There isn’t a single cloud in the sunny sky and it’s that deep, vibrant shade of blue that you just can’t take your eyes off, it’s just that perfect.

 

However…once I started to read this cute couple’s story, I realised that they nearly didn’t have this scorcher of a day as a backdrop to their destination wedding! They were meant to tie the knot the day before but there was a bit of a crazy turn in the weather. Luckily they managed to postpone the entire wedding until the next day.

 

It just shows that when you’re getting married abroad, it doesn’t matter where in the world you choose, you still can’t guarantee or control the weather! But there’s never any need to stress about these things either, as there is always a solution and it couldn’t have worked out better that Bree and David married the following day as they got to enjoy the most glorious day and said “I Do’ with the best of the Balinese sunshine smiling down on them.
