Destination Wedding in Cancun, Mexico

Destination Wedding in Cancun, Mexico

International destination weddings are one of my absolute favorites!  The excitement and the adventure of travelling overseas to film and photograph bridal couples is simply exhilarating. Alex and Andrew chose the beautiful and exotic town of Costa Mujeres in Mexico.

An intimate and unique destination elopement day experience with their family and friends. Having everyone in the one place over several days, means there is opportunity for deep and meaningful conversations and connections. Combining overseas photography, bridal couples and family focused in a multi-day experience is one of my greatest passions.

Where is Costa Mujeres, Mexico?

Situated in the heart of the Mexican Caribbean, Costa MujeresMexico is a small slice of paradise. Just a 20-minute drive north will get you to the very popular location of Cancun. Coast Mujeres is the place to enjoy the relaxed vibe of a beautiful, beachside city and all it has to offer.  Lined with private homes, golf courses and resorts, the white sandy beaches stretch for 3.2 kilometers.

There are restaurants full of delectable cuisines from all over the world.  Spanish, Arab, Mayan and Lebanese restaurants all situated at Costa Mujeres.   Find yourself immersed in the waves, surfing, boating or snorkelling with turtles.  Visit some of the Mayan sites like El Meco Archaeological zone and view the lovely floral gardens and iguana population.

The best time of the year to visit the sparkling turquoise ocean is from December to April.

Elopement Ceremony & Reception Details:  Sky Lounge Terrace, Majestic Elegance Resort, Costa Mujeres

Alex and Andrew had their first look portrait photos taken in the garden gazebo.  What an amazing piece of architecture.  A beautiful white, marble staircase leads up to a square arbour. Alex and Andrew chose to have their first look photos here. As you can see from the picture-perfect photos, what a brilliant choice!

Group portraits were located on the white sands of the picturesque Costa Mujeres beach. Saying “I DO” on the rooftop of the Sky Lounge Terrace was epic.  A Japanese inspired arbour overlooks the breathtaking blue ocean where Alex and Andrew said heart felt vows. The view of the ocean and sky from the rooftop was beyond words.  The weather was perfect and the scenery was breath-taking.
