How gorgeous is this private island Ambergris Cay wedding? Our Turks and Caicos photographers were delighted to be invited to the private luxury island of Ambergris Cay once again to photograph this intimate family wedding day. We’re sure you can tell from this charming collection of photos that this was a day full of fun, love and pure happiness.
Beautiful by nature
Our couple wanted to say ‘I do’ on a private luxury island. And what better island to choose than our own Ambergris Cay in the Turks and Caicos Islands? Indeed, this incredible, exclusive private island resort is the perfect place to truly get away from it all with those you love the most. And that’s exactly what our lovely family thought too.
With its pristine, unspoiled landscape, Ambergris Cay is home to a plethora of local flora and fauna. Wild rock iguanas live there peacefully in their natural habitat, feeding from the thousands of Turk’s head cactuses that adorn the island. The iguanas may be majestic wild animals, but their curiosity got the better of them on this special wedding day. One even came to check we’d got the settings right on our camera! Indeed its friendliness earned it the privilege of being named ‘Tony’ after the children’s grandpa! And Tony and his friends’ favourite meal made the most unique display prop for the bride and groom’s beautiful rings. Surely there can’t be a better souvenir of a Turks and Caicos wedding than a photo of your wedding rings on top of a Turk’s head cactus!
In the lap of luxury
Our Turks and Caicos wedding photographers travelled to Ambergris Cay from Providenciales in style. We were joined by officiant Pastor Padmore and wedding band Pozitive Vybrationz, for the 20 minute private jet flight from Providenciales too. Flying over the clear turquoise waters of the Turks and Caicos Islands is always such a pleasure and never gets old. Especially when you get to fly in the private jet that the Turks and Caicos Collection provides for its Ambergris Cay guest transfers.
Once you touch down on Ambergris Cay, the pace slows right down. Transport around the island is by golf cart, lending a quiet, peaceful charm to this unique jewel in the Turks and Caicos archipelago. With its luxurious, yet laid back vibe, Ambergris Cay offers the epitome of relaxed Caribbean elegance. In fact, it makes the perfect venue for a dream Turks and Caicos destination wedding in pure, secluded luxury.
Celebrating in style
As the girls got ready in their Ambergris Cay suite, the boys took the opportunity for a splash about in their private pool. And there were no pre-wedding jitters whatsoever as they relaxed in the sun together before the ceremony. Soon it was time for the boys to don their finery. And didn’t they both look so stylish? In fact, we don’t think we’ve ever seen a cooler looking best man!
Meanwhile, the ladies looked stunning in their co-ordinated floaty dresses. The bride’s elegant lace embroidered gown was set off delightfully by the girls’ blush coloured ensembles. Of course, the beauty of a family wedding is that everything can be tailored perfectly to everyone’s preferences. And it was such a lovely touch that the bridesmaids wore dresses that reflected their individuality.
An unforgettable day
Serenaded by the steel pan sounds of band Pozitive Vybrationz, the family joined together on the dock for the ceremony. Under a gorgeous flower-adorned arch with flowers from Flowers by EA, the happy couple exchanged their vows surrounded by their children. As the touching ceremony commenced, the family were joined by some Ambergris Cay staff, homeowners and guests. It seemed everyone wanted to share in our couple’s happiness!
After the ceremony, the children got to have a go at playing the steel pans themselves. In the meantime we grabbed their parents for some beautiful beachfront photos. And then everyone gathered together for the most perfect family photo shoot. Indeed, the love and joy were brimming over as the family relaxed together, barefoot on the Turks and Caicos sands. And the drone shots of the family strolling along the beach together were a touching memento of a truly lovely day.
We would like to extend our thanks to all the staff at Ambergris Cay for their enthusiasm and willingness to go the extra mile. Their helpfulness made this a very special day indeed for our family and for that we are very grateful.
