Barbados Wedding Photography – Caroline + Mark (Day One)

Being part of any wedding be it in the UK or abroad is an honour.  Still, after all the weddings I’ve photographed, here in the UK and destination weddings I’ve photographed thousands of miles away I always feel humbled and honoured to be part of such an important day in a couple’s love story.  Destination weddings are always a little different, but for this Barbados wedding it was one that I will never forget. Why, I hear you ask? Well, it’s simple….for this gorgeous couple’s official wedding, it was a small elopement like ceremony.  There was Caroline (the bride), Mark (the groom) & myself (the guy with the camera).

You see in Barbados you officially get married in a little registry office in quite frankly a small business park, no golden beaches, no blue sea and skies and definitely no wild turtles. Every couple that gets married in the Caribbean has to do this to make the marriage official. Then normally the day after you will have a celebration with an officiant, which is effectively the wedding day. But being asked to document the day by going with just the bride and groom to capture those intimate moments was a day I will never forget.

Destination Wedding Photographer – Barbados

Barbados is just truly breathtaking. The clear blue seas, the golden beaches, the people, the food…(should I carry on?)..I have to say I fell in love with the island. It’s a photographers dream, the perfect backdrop to any wedding. Caroline and Mark wanted to document the day before having their celebration (the day after) with family. So we headed to the beach for a relaxed, fun Barbados Wedding Photography shoot. The sun was beating down as this newly married couple walked hand in hand, embraced and started a new chapter in their lives together. We had so much fun on the shoot…images that show their true love and relationship, moments captured that they can cherish forever.
Here are a few images from Day One of this stunning Barbados Wedding….I can’t wait to show you the images from their celebration, they are coming very soon.

Barbados Wedding Photography

In the next few days I will be sharing Day two of their Barbados wedding celebrations. A beautiful intimate destination wedding celebration and all captured on such an amazing Caribbean Island. Barbados is close to my heart and if you are getting married there, and looking for a destination wedding photographer, I would love to chat.  The camera is always packed and the suitcase is ready. Feel free to get in touch as I would be honoured to capture the moment for you and document your love on the Caribbean Tropical Island of sunny Barbados.

Thanks for reading
