Beach Elopement – Manuel Antonio Costa Rica January 2013

A sunset beach elopement in Costa Rica just could not be more romantic. This wedding took place on the Manuel Antonio Beach, on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. The weather was looking a little rainy which is very unusual for the dry season, but the weather was on our side with only a little shower after the intimate ceremony.


This beautiful wedding was planned by the wonderful Erin from Oasis Weddings in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.

Beach Wedding – Manuel Antonio Costa Rica November 2012

A sunset beach elopement was this families pick for their Costa Rican wedding. The bride and groom and their two young boys love the beach, so what better place to get married. We took a few photos on the beach first (incase the boys got covered in sand!) and during the romantic sunset ceremony the boys played on the beach. Erin from Oasis Weddings organized a babysitter and had treats on hand for the little ones, so that Mom and Dad could enjoy their romantic wedding….and get some fantastic photographic memories too.

It’s been a busy beginning of the season, lots more weddings, house shoots and nature photos to come.

These two ladies thought they were just coming on vacation to Costa Rica, little did they know their husbands had also organized a renewal of their wedding vows! Randy from Celebrations Costa Rica helped the two gentlemen organize a small romantic ceremony which took place under the palm and almond trees on Manuel Antonio Beach. Both couples were staying at the Discovery Beach House, which is one of the few houses that have direct beach access in Manuel Antonio. After the ceremony and some photographs the fun on the beach, the group returned to the Discovery Beach House for an intimate reception dinner and cake cutting.

Beach Wedding – Esterillos Costa Rica June 2012

What a fantastically fun wedding! The bride and groom recently moved to Costa Rica and love to fish. They chose the beautiful and peaceful Esterillos Este Beach which is about 20 minutes north of Quepos / Manuel Antonio for their wedding celebration. All the guests were staying at the Hotel Monterey del Mar. The night before the wedding there was a rehearsal dinner and the sunset was unbelievable! We got some romantic shots as the couple just wanted to enjoy the following night at the wedding, I particularly like the sparkler photos around the bonfire. The wedding day was another glorious day, with another amazing sunset…June can have some spectacular sunsets with the start of the rainy season bringing in a few dramatic clouds. The wedding reception was really fun and I am pleased with how the photos captured the frivolity.

Wedding Day Fun!

Beach Wedding – Gaia Hotel Manuel Antonio Costa Rica June 2012

A beach wedding on a gloriously, sunny morning in June. This ceremony took place under the almond trees on Playa Espadilla; the longest of Manuel Antonio’s beaches. The bride and groom chose a morning wedding as the weather can be a little unpredictable in June, and they chose well the ocean and sky were perfect blue. After the ceremony the wedding party returned to the beautiful Gaia Hotel for the reception and cake cutting.
