We are so excited to be sharing Joyce and Jon's wedding photos from Anguilla! Joyce and Jon live in Toronto where Joyce is a pilates and TRX instructor and Jon gets away to surf as much as possible (when he is not surfing he works in the financial industry). They booked a penthouse at the modern Viceroy for the week and had their ceremony on the beach at Cap Juluca, a gorgeous morrocan themed resort. If you are thinking of having a destination wedding, debate no more, and plan your event in Anguilla: I have been to 7 caribbean islands and Anguilla is just amazing for weddings! What makes it so special? The people, the food and the beaches! Joyce and Jon enjoyed a casual morning getting ready at the Viceroy and then met up for their first look in the long open air hall. Joyce was stunning in her Jenny Packham dress! After a brief portrait session we headed to Cap Juluca for the ceremony and then returned to their Viceroy penthouse for the reception. There were a total of 12 in attendance for the event, plus myself and the amazing Alex and Julie Hill of Elysium Productions. Working with Alex and Julie is always amazing as we compliment each other so well in our style and personalities.
Joyce and Jon put a lot of thought into planning their destination wedding in order to create an intimate experience for their family and friends in attendance. When the toasts were finished and it was time for their first dance, instead of Joyce and John dancing alone, they invited everyone to join with them and the balcony of the penthouse was full of love. It was a beautiful moment that made it a romantic moment for all. The next day we met up for their Trash the Dress session where we explored a construction site, found an old roofless building, and then ended the session with some fun in surf.
Congratulations Joyce and Jon!! It was so much fun spending time with you on the island and we love your photos! ~Matt
