I was inspired to share more about getting married in BERMUDA after stumbling upon this wedding from the incredibly talented, Bermuda-based, fine art photographer, Amanda Temple. Amanda’s photography is stunning and I wanted to know more about her. Meet Amanda…
01// How did you end up living on the splendid island of Bermuda?
My father came to Bermuda in 1962 to start The Bristol Cellar, a wine merchant. He met my mother while skiing in Switzerland and they have lived here ever since. So I was very lucky to have been born in Bermuda.
02// What is your favorite thing about living on an island?
For the last two years, I have been living in a lovely cottage by the sea. I spend countless hours mesmerized by my stunning view of the South Shore. I actually started a separate instagram account @seabermudasky as a journal of the ever-changing canvas.
03// What does Bermuda offer destination brides that other locations might not?
Bermuda has a certain elegance; the tiny winding roads are lined with wonderfully overgrown, blooming bushes, one can find hidden beaches that are empty and the East Coast is but a couple hours away. As I started my career shooting film, I have always endeavored to create soft, romantic, timeless imagery; Bermuda provides the perfect backdrop.
04// What is the most unique photo request a wedding couple has ever asked you?
A few couples have requested trash the dress sessions, and inevitably they end up in the sea. But by far the strangest request was from my friend, Alexandra Mosher. I was the maid of honour for her May wedding and did much of the photography too. She asked if I could photograph her on a unicorn. So I did…
05// Most hotels on the island offer fabulous wedding locations, but what is your favorite off-property location for a destination wedding?
The Unfinished Church in St Georges is stunning. There is no roof, the carpet is grass, the windows have palm trees peeking through and the walls are a combination of silvery Bermuda limestone and antique brick. Stonehole Bay is also beautiful. It is a tiny cove with incredible pink sand and enclosed by weathered rock.
Thank you, Amanda!
