Setting The Scene
We met on a night out in our local town, over Christmas 2016. In December we travelled to Australia for a holiday, whilst there we had booked a cruise around New Zealand for 2 weeks. Whilst on the cruise sailing through the Milford Sound Chris had arranged for us to have access to the helipad viewing point, whilst I was busy taking photos of the amazing scenery, Chris was down on one knee.
Finding The Dress & Suit
I went shopping with an open mind not really knowing what I wanted or what style would suit me. The girls in the shop made my experience one to remember they were really helpful and made me feel at ease with the whole process, I went back to the shop twice before deciding on the one.
Suit shopping was a little more stressful! As we were getting married abroad we decided we were going to purchase the grooms and groomsmen’s suits rather than hire. Once we found what we wanted we just needed to make sure everything was in stock!
We got married in Mexico at the Azul Fives Resort in the Riviera Maya. Our theme was part of the wedding package that we had booked and we got to choose from six different themes, we decided to go for the ‘Pure Glamour’.
My ‘Something Old’ was my engagement ring, my ‘Something New’ was my wedding shoes, my ‘Something Borrowed’ was my earrings and my ‘Something Blue’ was my garter!
Rebekka & Chris chose our ‘Destination‘ collection for their wedding invitations, which fit perfectly with their exotic Mexican wedding. For the on the day items, the couple decided to go for our Sweetheart design which tied in their colour scheme perfectly.
Caribe Photography – Mexico captured Rebekka & Chris’ romantic day. We love them all but our favourites have to be the ones where you can see the sea!
Your Favourite Moment
Standing at the top of the aisle with my mum before we walked down the aisle was a very special moment I will never forget, and of course the moment we said ‘i do’
