This weekend took me again to Paradise Island as photographer for Jessica and Michael’s wedding. The original plan was for the wedding and reception to be at The Cove, but sadly the unpredictable September Bahamas weather decided to change those plans and force everything indoors.
Not to be stopped, the awesome wedding team at Atlantis, along with the equally awesome team at Wildflowers, managed to move both the ceremony decor, and the entire reception, to an indoor location within the Atlantis resort.
While still a fantastic day out, one thing was missing – beautiful bridal images! To me, they are one of the most important sets of images of the day, so I offered to come back to the Cove later in the week, once the weather had cleared, to make sure Jess and Michael had some images that would let them remember the real beauty of the Bahamas and their wedding.
Michael, camera shy at best, was hesitant, but came round to the idea, and we spent a relaxed couple of hours later in the week, without the pressure of wedding day timelines, to make some stunning images they have since told me they absolutely love.
I guess it’s true that every cloud does have a silver lining – even if those clouds appear on your wedding day.
