Sand, Sea and Simple Celebrations…

I’m not sure you could get closer to the sea! Kylee & Ryan booked a week at Villa Sandstone, which perches right on the edge of Grace Bay. With such a gorgeous view they knew they wanted their ceremony there. A small group of friends and family sat between the dunes and the sea as the couple said their vows. James from Paradise Photography took advantage of the light to get shots of everyone, before Kylee and Ryan had the sunset backdrop, with amazing colours, all to themselves! Dinner was catered by Clive and the Kissing Fish team...

A Short Walk to a Secluded Beach…

A Short Walk to a Secluded Beach…

Bimla and Campbell traveled halfway around the world to get here so they weren’t worried about a stroll along the sand to reach a secluded part of the beach, perfect for their ceremony! With just the two of them, they wanted somewhere a little away from the closest resort, so after some photos in the greenery of Villa del Mar we headed east, away from Grace Bay, and found a tranquil spot with very few passers-by. Ileana of Attimi Photography took these gorgeous shots of the happy couple – and managed to have yet another fabulous...

The Secret Behind the Mona Lisa Smile…

The Secret Behind the Mona Lisa Smile…

The great thing about small weddings is that they open up so many venue opportunities. Brittianie and Joe decided they wanted to say their vows at their chosen villa in Chalk Sound, and as you’ll see from the pictures, very much in Chalk Sound – with feet in the water the whole time! It had been a cloudy overcast day, but the sunset made the sky amazing and Ileana from Attimi Photography made the most of it. Brittianie and Joe were happy to scramble into a kayak and onto an old boat to get some unusual photos. After the ceremony...

Pig Roast, Salt and Junkanoo!

Lauren & Brandon chose Beach House as their wedding venue and with 90 guests they were able to have the whole resort to themselves, which made for a great atmosphere! For their rehearsal dinner they enjoyed a pig roast on the beach, a relaxed beginning to the celebrations before the big day dawned… After a wedding ceremony on the powdery sands of Grace Bay beach they moved to the beach bar deck for cocktails. A junkanoo parade escorted guests to dinner at the poolside restaurant – Lauren used locally made salt as unique place...

Kiss Me Baby One More Time…

Kiss Me Baby One More Time…

I bet you’re all singing the Britney song now, aren’t you? Sorry! It’s a very tenuous link to the fact that Laura and Rob came back to Turks and Caicos to renew their vows on their 10th anniversary… They originally got married at Ocean Club West and had their reception at Bay Bistro. They wanted to repeat the whole experience for their vow renewal, but with a few less guests than last time! Their ceremony was a relaxed, laughter-filled affair on the beach, and although it was a little overcast the incredible sunset made...

Barefoot on the Beach…

Barefoot on the Beach…

At NILA Destinations we love that phrase; it conjures up an image of relaxation, toes in the sand, waves gently lapping… That’s exactly what Kristin and Miguel experienced for their wedding. It was just the couple and Kristin’s mum for their big day, so they chose a stretch of sand far from the nearest hotel for their ceremony. With nobody wandering by they had the beach to themselves! A fabulous sunset helped to finish off the day. Thanks to Ileana at Attimi Photography for capturing all the special moments  (I particularly...

Pirates and Machetes? Not your typical wedding…

Pirates and Machetes? Not your typical wedding…

Each wedding is distinctive in its own way but Leslie and Richard’s had a couple of touches that don’t necessarily spring to mind when you think about a wedding day… It’s not every bride and groom that have their picture taken with a pirate! After an intimate ceremony on a quiet stretch of beach, with water so still it was like glass behind them, out came the Champagne to toast their celebrations and with a flourish Richard used a machete to open the bottle – clearly inspired by his new marauder...
