Elizabeth and Simon are well underway with plans for their Spring 2020 wedding and their recent visit to Bermuda gave us the perfect opportunity to schedule a “practice session” – aka – engagement session! As these pictures will demonstrate – all good here : )
Sometimes you just have to get away and keep things simple! Jackie and Adam had a private elopement with their best friends in attendance at the Unfinished Church in St. George’s, a perfect romantic setting on a beautiful evening.
When Susan first reached out about her Bermuda wedding at The Reefs she had said that she wanted to go snorkeling… in her dress… during the cocktails! While that didn’t happen it should give you some insight into the day and how it unfolded. Susan and Lee were a blast, head over heels for each other and simply happy and down for whatever. They had their daughters with them along with a small group of friends and family, a low stress combo without the bigger numbers. The weather was simply perfect and as usual The Reefs and Bermuda Event Solutions, along with Demco knocked it out of the park.

Stephanie and Matthew’s wedding incorporated many fun elements throughout the day. After the traditional (but brief) ceremony at St. Theresa’s it was all aboard the train where the bride and groom were dropped off at the Hamilton Princess to board the Black Pearl! The rest of the train passengers enjoyed a tour around Hamilton while they relaxed with much needed downtime during the boat ride around the Harbour, the perfect time to enjoy a glass of bubbles and savour the moment. From there it was back to the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club for the reception and what a greeting upon arrival. With the dock tented for the dinner speeches went on into the evening before the sound of drums were heard where the Gombeys burst in and led the way to the dance floor. A truly enjoyable wedding for all in attendance!
Every year I seem to have a wedding (or two) that is so off the charts it’s really hard to convey. I knew coming into the weekend that this was likely to be one of those weddings… Kat and Greg wanted to do it all. They loved The Loren and chose to host their group of friends and family at the stunning property, it was the starting point of our epic day. The ceremony was held at the Unfinished Church followed by a quick set of pictures. From there it was a train ride down to the St. George’s Harbour for a cocktail cruise on the Uber Vida. The grand finale was their reception at the Mid Ocean Beach Club with the new Sperry Tent set host the partying well into the night. Truly a vibrant and fun couple with the perfect Bermuda Wedding.

We’re barely into the 2019 wedding season and yet meet Diana and Richard who were in Bermuda recently to plan their Spring 2020 wedding, a fun and lively couple there was no shortage of laughter. We met up at the popular and well know Jobson’s Cove. A small sheltered cove amongst our Southshore beaches. It’s a popular spot for smaller weddings but works especially well for an engagement session. We ventured a bit further down to Stonehole, the change in sand and scenery from beach to beach is remarkable. Here’s to 2020 weddings!
Allison and Christopher were the perfect start to the 2019 wedding season, an opportunity to work at two of Bermuda’s best wedding venues – The Loren and the Hamilton Princess Hotel. They had chosen The Loren for the getting ready part of the day and the ceremony, the arbor on the circular deck (by Demco) was simply out of this world. From there it was off to the Trudeau Room at the Hamilton Princess for dinner, speeches and dancing.
And just like that the 2019 season is off and what a start!
The 2019 wedding season is quickly approaching and I have several clients visiting over the coming weekends. It’s a great time to get away to Bermuda for a quick visit, enjoy some warmth, meet with your vendors, a tasting or two and most importantly your engagement session!
Allison and Christopher are my first couple for the 2019 season and have a perfect day planned at a couple of Bermuda’s hottest wedding venues. Stay tuned for more from this awesome couple.
Another Bermuda Wedding season wrapped up and what a season it was! Last year was an incredibly busy year for weddings in Bermuda and for Bermuda in general. Tourism numbers were up along with wedding numbers. I know I say this at the end of every season but it was definitely the best year yet, not only the greater volume, new venues and mix of weddings but also some really memorable and lovely clients. I’m so fortunate to get to be a part of many special and intimate moments, invited into the inner circle and completely entrusted to capture memories that will be passed down for generations to come, it’s an awesome responsibility.
Something new for me for 2018 was signing up for Wedding Wire and while I’ve never been a fan of Wedding Wire it was overwhelming to have been flooded with amazing reviews after sending out a simple request to a few couples, very humbling and definitely something I was proud of.
What’s in store for 2019 wedding season? Well it too will be busy, I do have some very exciting weddings in the works with some wonderful couples so I’m looking forward to getting tucked in. What is crazy is that 2020 is looking to be monster year with plenty of weddings in the books so far and tons of interest. Are you planning a 2019 or 2020 Bermuda wedding? If so get in touch.
To all of my 2018 clients thank you so much for everything, I am super humbled and ever grateful for your patronage, generosity and trust. Here’s to a wild and crazy 2019!
Below is a few of the many beautiful moments of 2018 – lots of love, so much laughter and happiness and a whole lot of dancing!
Exciting, rewarding, intense and beautiful are just a few of the words that describe how I feel when I am behind the camera. These are the feelings that bring me so much pleasure from photography..... (read more)
