Barbados Beach Wedding

A few weeks after my arrival in Barbados I met with Sam and Daniel to photograph this beautiful Barbados Beach Wedding shoot.  As you may know, my wife has recently landed a three year contract to manage Horse Barbados (The Humane Organisation for the Relief of Suffering Equinesand so we have relocated out to the tropical Caribbean Island of Barbados. I say relocated, Gill and the dogs are in Barbados while I commute back and forth to UK to fulfil my booked wedding photography commitments for 2017 and 2018.  Fortunately they fall into some resemblance of order and I find that I am flying back to UK to shoot 2 to 4 weddings over a 3 to 4 week period before returning to the sun for a couple of months of Destination Wedding and Equine Photography.

Destination Wedding Photography Bride and Groom on Caribbean Beach

Sam and Daniel are due to be married next October and neither they or I could resist the opportunity to have a small sunset photoshoot followed by a cool rum punch in Ju Ju’s bar near Holetown, Barbados.Barbados Beach Wedding

I’d asked Sam and Daniel to dress for a casual wedding styled shoot on the beach.  The temperature was a humid 27 degrees C and there was a light breeze.  I’d not met either of the couple prior to the shoot but we had an extensive chat on the phone. I had identified the location and arranged to meet on the sand at 4.30.  (Sunset was at 5.15).  I arrived 15 or so minutes early with Gill helping me to carry, light and assist in keeping the equipment off the damp sand.  At this stage I knew the weather and sea conditions were looking good, despite a really heavy downpour a few minutes earlier.  When Sam and Daniel arrived, I knew we had a great shoot ahead of us.  Both looked relaxed, in love and I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful dress. In 40 minutes we captured some amazing shots.  This next photograph is my favourite and I am particularly proud of the way it has come out. – I think it typifies the image of a Barbados Beach Wedding.

Oh, and here is a beautiful slideshow of the shoot.
