I absolutely love destination weddings and although it comes with its fair share of extra stress and costs, it is always worth it!

When Sara first contacted me all the way from California in the USA and told me about her dream of having penguins in her wedding photos, I was skeptical about it to say the least. Realistically, I explained, these little cute creatures in their tuxedos are shy and will definitely not sit still facing the camera while we use them as props. Nonetheless, we went to the beach and there were quite a few sitting around on the rocks lazing in the afternoon sun. As expected all of them left quickly and Sara’s dad carried on with his beautiful message for them.

I have photographed lavish celebrations of 1500 people, to being one of the only witnesses when two people promise love to each other barefoot in the sand on a tropical island. Each celebration is so special and Warren & Cheronne’s Mauritius Beachcomber Paradis Golf Resort & Spa destination wedding was no different.

This was the first time the venue did the event outdoors, and although it was a risk with a week of windy conditions and threatening rain, this evening there was not a breeze. I have photographed a few spectacular weddings at Bona Dea Estate, including the wedding of Robert’s son and daughter-in-law Ian & Jen (Click here to see their wedding photos). I almost feel like part of the family already, so when they phoned me a few weeks ago to be a part of this wedding (yes, they made all of this happen in a mere few weeks, well done team!), it was a resounding yes from me.

A destination wedding in Tanzania and Kenya was always on my bucket list so when I was asked by the super fun couple and now friends Ruth & Michael to be their wedding photographer in Zanzibar, I was very excited!
