  • The view… seriously you cannot beat the tropical ocean, swing palm trees and silky white sand. Forget your ‘something blue’, we have that covered.
  • Cool breeze, ocean air, sun-kissed cheeks and sandy toes… enough said.
  • “Golden Hour’ is absolute the best-est most incredible beautiful light (yes we are excited about this light). The best golden hour is found right here.
  • It’s way more relaxed and Casual
  • Did we say its beautiful…..


  • Its hot and sandy….. some people get fed up of the heat and sand and the novelty wears off.
  • Planning with tropical weather can be tricky and making sure you are covered for the “R” word… can’t say it. (the wet stuff)
  • The beach is public so you may have some ‘other’ guests in the background.
  • It can be windy so when we think of the brides hair, keep this in mind with styling.

Getting married will be one of the biggest day and best day of your life…. and you’re in the Caribbean so, beach it up baby!
