Kelly and Paul had an amazing wedding weekend here in Bermuda. A strategic pick of date 7/7/17 set up a Friday wedding where we had some dramatic weather which in the end brought around some epic stormy skies and rainbows – the perfect contrast and backdrop to our pink sand and turquoise waters.

We started our coverage of the day with Paul and his dad at the Fairmont Southampton Princess getting the finishing touches to their suits as well as Paul opening his gifts from his soon-to-be-wife, Kelly.  Most notably ‘Soulmate’ socks and a watch to make sure he showed up on time! Moving on to the girls room we captured the hanging dress and wedding party in their robes with a champagne toast. Moving on to details of the jewelry, garter pull, shoes and the finishing touches of hair and the brides wedding dress buttons. After some final individual shots on the balcony we headed to The Reefs for the Caso’s Point ceremony.

It was a beautiful ceremony despite the showers as you can tell by the smiles and laughter through-out and on to the first dances. Following the brief shower we headed to the beach for some dramatic skies and intimate shots with the newlyweds. Family and friends then joined in for some group shots with a stunning ocean backdrop.

The reception was on the ocean deck at Coconuts overlooking the golden sunsetting beach – a perfect location for a welcoming speech, Bermuda rum swizzles, dinner and cake cutting before the party really kicked off!

The following day we arranged a wreck-the-dress shoot at more South Shore beaches; Warwick Long Bay and Jobson’s Cove. Bermuda’s newest couple enjoyed getting soaked jumping off the rocks and they now have some amazing images to savour forever.

We wish you all the very best! Congratulations!

Sarah & Eric | Mid Ocean Club | May 13th, 2017

Sarah and Eric had the most memorable wedding week in Bermuda surrounded by their nearest and dearest for a host of activities and their big day. The photo coverage started with the welcome party, a dinner at Bistro J and cocktails on the patio of the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club.

They awoke to glorious Bermuda sunshine on a May day to remember. The girls were staying in Tuckers Town overlooking turquoise water and one of the best views on the island. After getting some details, dress and getting ready candids we ventured to south shore to catch the boys getting the final touches done and a few group shots before returning to the girls.

The ceremony took place in Hamilton at St.Teresa’s with all the bells and whistles and even a duet from Sarah’s parents. Following the hugs and celebrations we started with some group shots at the cathedral and then onto the Tuckers Town residence for bridal party and family groups. Once the cocktail party started at Mid Ocean Club we had some fun on the beach and then some more intimate images with the newlyweds at the beautiful beach cove.

A fantastic reception followed with plenty of great food and even better dancing!

Congratulations Sarah and Eric, a truly lovely couple. We wish you all the very best in your future together.

Caitlin and Jonathan woke up to glorious sunshine on their big day. It would turn out to be one of the best weather days of the year which only set the scene for how special it would be for them to be joined surrounded by their family and closest friends.

While Jonathan and the boys made their way to the ceremony site at St. Patrick’s we joined Caitlin at Hamilton Princess to capture the finishing touches of the girls getting ready… the jewellery, shoes, final touches to hair and the little ones excited about the day ahead. Following a few shots on the way out of the hotel we made our way to the church as well.

The ceremony was inclusive of beautiful readings, the ring exchange, prayer and signing of the registrar.

The formal pictures took place back at Hamilton princess in the gorgeous courtyard. Wedding party and family group shots then we continued with a more intimate shoot on the hotel property with the newlyweds before heading to cocktails and reception.

Congratulations Caitlin and Jonathan! We wish you all the very best in your future together.

Sam & Jack | Orange Valley | October 28th, 2016

Bermuda wedding photographer | Moongate Productions | Blog

 

The smiles were relentless during the union of these two beautiful families. A combination of an amazing October day, historical Bermuda residences, fantastic home-made decor and a horse and carriage. For everyone involved, this was truly a wedding to remember.

Sam was getting ready at her uncle’s Bermuda home with her bridesmaids so we took advantage of the light pouring through the cedar windows to showcase her dress, details and gift giving and receiving. We caught up with Jack, his groomsmen and father at the church. A small intimate venue but perfect for this lovely couple to tie the knot.

Following a beautiful ceremony the newlyweds were escorted by horse and carriage to the Orange Valley residence to take some intimate formals as well as bridal party group pictures. Continuing from there we captured candids of the reception introduction and into the tented dinner which included some of the best speeches I’ve ever heard including Jack getting on stage to sing with his best man/brother on guitar. It didn’t take long for this crowd to get on the dance-floor and the rest is history!

Congratulations to Sam & Jack. We wish you all the very best in your future together.

Meghan & Daniel | Newstead Belmont Resort | October 9th, 2016

Bermuda Wedding Photographer | Moongate Productions | Blog

 

A Bermuda-ful October day. Sunshine and plenty of smiles greeted Meg and Dan on their big occasion.  The scene was set at Newstead from getting ready all the way through to the reception which helped us capture the true emotions being poured in to this celebration.

Amazing organisation was put into the decor and all the way down to the small details, which is quite something for a destination wedding. Beginning with individual tie pins for the boys, a framed Bermuda print for guests to sign, hashtag #megwinsanemmy and an emotional slideshow of Dan and his baby girls while Meg danced with her own father.

After capturing the final touches of the boys getting ready and a traditional drink cheers we ventured over to an excited girls room which had the dresses hanging up and ready for us. Following a champagne toast and taking advantage of the light pouring in the balcony doors we set up the first look for the bridge and groom.

The ceremony site looked over the sun-kissed infinity pool and the gorgeous harbour just to add to this special moment while the newlyweds officially tied the knot! Formal family and bridal party pictures were then followed with a more intimate photo-shoot of Meg & Dan at other waterside spots on this gorgeous resort.

The reception continued the fantastic atmosphere with grand entrances, cake cutting, speeches and first dances. Then the party really kicked in with a Bermudian Soca vibe!

We finished up this amazing weekend with a trash-the-dress shoot at Warwick Long bay and Jobsons Cove the very next day.  The combination of pink sand, torquiose waters and formal splashes make for epically fun images to treasure forever.  We wish you and your lovely girls all the very best in your future together.

Katie & Brian were blessed with fantastic September weather to tie the knot. Starting the day getting ready at the newly renovated Hamilton Princess we were able to capture the excitement in both boys and girls camps. Lots of laughs, smiles, champagne, colourful hanging dresses (and one suit) as well as numerous youtube videos of how to tie a bow tie started the day off in the right direction with the sun bursting through the south shore facing rooms. The gorgeous soft light coming through Katie’s balcony and swimming pool facing pamper room gave us an opportunity to capture just how beautiful this bride was on her most anticipated day of her life.

The ceremony location has to be one of the most stunning and unique places we have ever had the chance to photograph. With all the guests, groomsmen and Brian ready to go – Katie and her parents arrived by horse and carriage to the cliff-top ceremony. A singing bridesmaid, vows, ring exchange and a first kiss to seal the marriage in style – everything about this ceremony was perfect as the newlyweds were surrounded by their closest friends and family.

We definitely had to take advantage of the dramatic landscape for the formal photographs and carried on the adventure for a more intimate shoot with Bermuda newest couple!

The reception venue was at the Hamilton Princess beach club were everyone enjoyed a fantastic meal, first dances, speeches followed by DJ Rusty G taking the reception to the next level for a wedding none of the guests will forget!

We wish you all the very best in your future together!

Stephanie & Nuno | Bella Vista, Port Royal | September 3rd, 2016

Bermuda Wedding Photographer | Moongate Productions | Blog

 

September 3rd will go down in memory as a very special day. Gorgeous weather and surrounded by family and friends – Stephanie and Nuno got everything they asked for in their perfect wedding.

In both getting ready camps there were wedding gifts and the last exchanged love letters between the couple before they were to be husband and wife. We took full advantage of the amazing light at Stephanies parents Warwick residence as soon as Stephanie was in her stunning wedding dress.

The cermeony was at St. Teresa’s to make it official followed by a dove release. After a horn-blowing drive around town the bridal party and the newly-weds arrived at Botanical gardens for some formal family shots and to have a bit of fun. Stephanie and Nuno then had a more intimate photo-shoot in the evening light at Stonehole Bay to emphasise their connection and take advantage of the contrast of colours in the background to the fresh choices of their wedding attire.

The reception at Bella Vista had it all. Cake cutting, emotional and funny speeches, first dances, bouquet/garter toss as well as a feast for the eyes as the entire guestlist lit up the darkness with Chinese lanterns into the summer night. Then the party really started…

We wish you all the very best in your future together!

Arielle & Victor | Coral Beach Club | August 27th, 2016

Bermuda Wedding Photographer | Moongate Productions | Blog

Coral Beach is a fantastic location, one of our favourites! Everything was perfect – the getting ready rooms, the formal photo area on the green, beach scenes and the best reception dancefloor in Bermuda! The stage was set for Arielle and Victors special day.

After capturing some last minute touches and details pre-ceremony we ventured to St. Patricks in Devonshire for the ceremony. The beautiful wedding car escorted the newlyweds (champagne in hand) back to Coral Beach Club for some formal photographs including family combinations and some fun bridal party shots. We had some time with Bermuda newest couple by themselves to capture more intimate moments on the gorgeous grounds and a walk down to the south shore beach.

Reception followed with the introductions, cake cutting, first dances and some heartfelt speeches. Party time was turned up by DJ Chubb and continued into the night on the famous longtail terrace!

We wish you all the very best in your future together. We are so happy we were part of your special day!

Blue skies and orange walls greeted us at Grotto Bay to kick start the wedding festivities on this hot August day! Following Kareems crew getting ready we ventured over to Tuckers Point to catch the finishing touches with Brittany and her family.

The ceremony took place at the very unique Unfinished Church in historic St. Georges which was lit up even more with various colours of summer dresses and bermuda shorts. Brittany was escorted down the aisle to her future husband Kareem by her parents. After the ring exchanges and the signing of the register it was official!

We travelled the eastern loop to capture some water background images with the newlyweds and photography the family formal images. Fort St. Catherine, Alexandra battery and the cobbled streets of St. Georges are amazing spots and we took full advantage!

The guest cocktails and reception was held at The Tempest. Beautiful water views as the sun set, heartfelt speeches, first dances and cake cutting brought an end to our coverage for the new Mr &Mrs!

The heat took it’s toll and even though you had to cut your night short we could see all the love and support that you are surrounded by with your family and friends. We wish you all the very best in your future together!

July 30th was a glorious Bermuda summer day! We started at the Fairmont Southampton Princess for some getting ready shots with Heather, her parents and her bridesmaids. As a wedding make-up artist herself she knew the process in and out and had some great ideas of what worked best for imagery through-out the day.

We caught up with the boys at The Reef’s ceremony site to capture a few group shots and some details of the wedding bands. The ceremony was beautiful – surrounded by family, friends and turquoise water!

Following the ceremony we took some time to take family shots on Caso’s point. The formals continued with a walk through the traditional moongate with Bermuda’s newest couple and then on to the beach for some fun pictures of the bridal party.

Soft evening sunset light, a beautiful bride head-piece, and Ninja turtle groomsmen socks made this wedding truly unique. A gorgeous reception location at Coconuts overlooking the ocean and down Bermuda’s south shore beaches just topped off their amazing day that will live long in the memories by everyone.

We wish you all the health and happiness in your future together. All the best!
