Cenotes or “sacred water”—a deep natural pit, or sinkhole, characteristic of Mexico—provides the ideal backdrop for theatrical romance. Photographer Ivan Luckie is fascinated by the possibilities and captures many trash-the-dress moments in one of various locations along the Riviera Maya.
Riviera Maya, a favourite for destination brides, runs south of Cancun in the Mexican Caribbean and comprises: Tulum, the only archaeological site located by the sea; Xel-Ha, the largest natural aquarium in the world; and silky beaches and Mayan caves and villages.
You can take a leisurely stroll along “La Quinta Avenida” of Playa del Carmen and enjoy the wide variety of bars, restaurants and shops.
Photography by Vanessa Hall
Erin and Jason said their vows under a canopy of coconut trees at the Carlisle Bay Hotel, Antigua. The shaded area makes for an excellent morning or afternoon wedding. For the post shoot, photographer Vanessa Hall, booked the Genesis (charter yacht). The adventurous newlyweds were open to exploring a number of opportunities for the camera. The photographer with skipper, Alexis, was able to capture dramatic seascapes, ocean blue romance, and silhouettes.
