Renata & Miro’s destination wedding in Paradise Island, the Bahamas

Posted on January 22, 2013



Renata said she had visited the Bahamas about 10 years ago and totally fell in love with it. It’s natural beauty, warm weather and sparkling ocean waters make Paradise Island an easy place to never want to leave! Just off the coast of New Providence Island, Paradise Island is truly a paradise – with its own bevy of hotels and a gorgeous strip of beach. Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas is accessible either via bridge or boat making traveling to and from Paradise Island a relative breeze from the mainland.


Planning a December destination wedding in Paradise Island must have been a natural idea for Renata and Miro who live in Toronto, where the weather is quite cold at that time of year. So, they chose to do a sea and sand themed wedding – and they chose the perfect place, as I am sure their guests would agree! Who wouldn’t want to go to the Bahamas for a wedding? Many of their guests came from around the world, and from some areas that are also very cold at this time of year. It was a guest list from some distant corners of the world including Spain, Germany, Bulgaria, Canary Islands, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Moscow and New York City. To reflect the diversity of the guests, the wedding was hosted in 2 languages by a close friend of the couple.




Renata and Miro chose the Riu Palace for their destination wedding celebration. This incredible all inclusive resort was enjoyed by their guests during their time in paradise. With a magnificent buffet restaurant as well as several themed restaurants, there is no lack of options as far as meal options go. The resorts beautiful pool and beach area speak for themselves. This was obviously a fabulous choice for a destination wedding location.


Albert enjoyed roaming the amazing grounds of this resort with Renata and Miro, capturing many great shots along the way. The bride was wearing a dress by Angelina Faccenda and shoes by Prada. She was wonderfully complimented by her groom in a Canalli suit.


It is always inspirational to shoot at a new and different location and on Paradise Island there are just endless places to create gorgeous photos. Aside from all the Riu Palace has to offer, there is the incomparable and world famous Atlantis, modeled after the “lost city of Atlantis.” This enormous hotel complex offers a world class water park as well as a truly incredible aquarium and an opulent casino.



If ever in Paradise Island town for a destination wedding, you should go to the main city of Nassau to explore the rich history the Bahamas has to offer. There are museums, botanical gardens and ruins to see. Not to mention, more beautiful beaches! Try local cuisine, such as conch chowder, a local favorite.


We are thrilled to present these photos from Renata and Miro’s sunny and sandy destination wedding in Paradise Island, Bahamas!
