This is going to be a long post…are you ready? I had the incredible pleasure of photographing Tanya and Chris’s wedding at the Cove, Atlantis Resort, Bahamas. What an amazing location for a wedding and an amazing wedding it was!
It started off with an outdoor welcome party Friday night at The Dig for their 125 guests. Everything was so colourful – the tables, the fire dancers, the band and so were Tanya and Chris! This is a couple with true style….seriously. Chris – you know how much I loved your shirt!
Details. Details. It’s all about the details. You have to love a bride with hot pink shoes!
Tanya was such a trooper and up for anything. My thought was you can’t get married at Atlantis and not have some photos at the aquarium – right? Well, for anyone who’s been there, the Atlantis Resort is huge! To get from one location to another can be quite the trek and perhaps not feasible for bridal photos. Unless you have a bride like Tanya! She had her flip flops on and I swear, I could not keep up to her! From the Cove, we headed to the Royal Towers where we went to the aquarium for some shots. We were literally there a few minutes and then we quickly moved on. Doesn’t she look like a beautiful mermaid here?
We made our way to the shark tunnel (that was a walk in itself). An Atlanits employee was kind enough to bring us their the quickest way possible. Again, we were literally there a few minutes and then quickly made our way to the next location! We got such a variety of photos and it’s Tanya that made that happen.
These photos were taken in the main lobby of the Cove, which is a site to see in itself. I love how the light is hitting Tanya’s face. Isn’t she beautiful? And her dress…..GORGEOUS!
What a setting for a ceremony. It was perfect.
It was getting dark and the clouds started looming in.
There was a storm approaching but it sure made for some dramatic photos – don’t you think?
The pool area at the Cove had these teak canopy beds lined up. I thought it would be so cool to have one of the beds on the beach for some photos. I was told Bob (father of the bride) could make it happen! He made it happen. Thanks Bob!
There was a brunch for the guests the next morning at the Fathoms Restuarant. How gorgeous is this?
I have to share this photo….it’s one of my favourites! The dessert table was set up right against the aquarium.
I think this fish has a sweet tooth!
Tanya and Chris – it was a true honour and pleasure photographing your wedding. I enjoyed meeting your family and friends and everyone was very welcoming. I wish you all the best. Here’s to a life together full of health and happiness.
