A TRULY ROMANTIC CUBAN GETAWAY
Chris and Jess got married in April at the awesome Hotel Playa Pesquero, which is a stunning beachfront hotel in Cuba. It was a beautiful day and the sun shone all day long!
Bride and groom prep
Chris got ready in his best man’s hotel room with his groomsmen, and the atmosphere was full of excitement. He then rode on a horse-drawn coach to get to the ceremony. Jess got ready in a separate room with her bridesmaids and parents along with her two beautiful little girls. They travelled to the ceremony on a beautiful horse-drawn carriage down to the beach.
The ceremony was a beautiful service on the beach. It was an intimate affair with just a handful of their loved ones. During the ceremony, the sun was shining and everyone was beaming with smiles. It was so personal and so emotional.
The reception was on the private beach at the venue. They chose Hotel Playa Pesquero because it’s near the beach and they just fell in love with it. It was a beach wedding, which was fantastic as we got to take some beautiful couple portraits near the water. I love shooting destination weddings because the surroundings are completely stunning.
They had a cocktail drinks reception in the afternoon and an intimate family dinner in the evening. They decorated the venue with lots of colour and this made them happy because it was a summer wedding.
The most memorable part of the day was the ceremony because it was so romantic and personal. They also had a gorgeous meal on the beach under the stars – it was the first time I’ve seen that at a wedding!
Chris and Jess’s wedding was everything I love about weddings and just the happiest occasion. Here’s their sunny Cuban destination wedding!
