Since the Eleutheran Adventurers made their pilgrimage to Eleuthera in the 1640’s, this beautiful island has gained world renown for its rustic charm, pristine pink sand beaches and stunning landscapes.
The groom, Jonathan, spent several years of his childhood on the island so naturally it was the perfect location to host their stunning island wedding, and exchange vows with his darling bride-to-be, Bea. Bea is from Madrid, Spain so need I give more explanation for her choice to wear a stylish red wedding gown?
Ok, just a bit more…
This lovely couples’ ceremony and reception took place on New Year’s Eve at the newly renovated La Bouganvillea Boutique Hotel in North Palmetto Point, Eleuthera. The resort was also hosting its own party to which they had requested guests kindly wear white. Knowing this, Jonathan suggested that Bea consider wearing a red dress, instead of the traditional white, so she would stand out even more. At first she brushed the idea off. But then, unbeknownst to Jonathan, she changed her mind and decided to go bold, and surprise him by wearing red. A phenomenal choice indeed!
And now, I’ll let the images tell the rest of the story… ♥
It’s always a nice idea for newlyweds to make their getaway right after the ceremony for a private photo session. It gives couples a chance to catch themselves and take a breather from the wedding day hustle and bustle. For just a few minutes they can be themselves, together, in love on their day…and I can tag along and capture those special moments.
A huge thank you to Etoile (Jonathan’s sister) for the thoughtful suggestion that Bea and Jonathan take a drive around the quaint little settlement of Palmetto Point for their wedding portraits.
It was such an honour and an absolute pleasure to capture Bea & Jonathan’s special day. My heartfelt congratulations. ♥
