With the winter chill set in place now for the next few months, summer really seems like a distant memory. So be sure to go grab yourself a nice cup of hot chocolate and feel the warmth of our post with our great read for a beach wedding destination.
The thought of a destination wedding can be really overwhelming, as there is much to consider. You should definitely keep it as an open option especially if this is something that you and your partner have spoken about deeply.
Beach weddings are hands down our fave at Hart & Harper —something that you can look back and cherish all of the beautiful memories. Think golden, sun-kissed skin, a warm breeze, flowing curls and dresses and relaxed atmosphere! . One day is sometimes not enough to celebrate this special event in your lives when you can be celebrating with close family and friends for days/weeks leading up, as there is no where else to go but to be together. So with all the beautiful beaches around the world it was hard to pick just one to showcase in our post so we decided to pick a location that we felt doesn't get as much attention as it deserves....
Our beach destination pick is a small island in the Philippines located approx 315km south of the capital of Manila called Boracay AKA Bora Bora - commonly by many tourist and locals. Boracay Island and its beaches is famous for being one of the world’s top destination for relaxation and in 2012 Boracay was awarded as the best island in the world from the international travel magazine Travel + Leisure.
Now you might be thinking "YES! double it up with a honeymoon!" Enjoy the day before your wedding with friends and family, celebrate by activities on the beach, sipping some yummy tropical cocktails, getting your nails done, or getting a well deserved massage before your big day … that's exactly what we hoped would be running through your mind.
So how does one start the steps in planning for a Boracay wedding ?
Well The Shangri-La Resort is located on station one and is second to none as they are the only international five star resort on the island. Its backdrop is breathtaking for your ceremony and reception. Whether it be in a beautiful decorative reception inside or having the sand between your toes as you and your guest dance the night away under the stars, they really know how to add the touch of style and elegance.
Now if you need some extra persuading i will let this highlight captured by the talented Bob Nicolas Wedding Films speak for itself as he captures the beauty the island has to offer for this gorgeous wedding. And if you do decide to think about a wedding in Boracay be sure to contact these guys as they really do know how to capture the special moments of your day and make it feel like your in a movie we cant get enough.
