Kelly and Simon are Fun In the Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! It was a random spin of the globe that led to this bride and groom choosing to get married on the beach in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
Here is their story…
Kelly is from Scotland, and Simon is from New Zealand, but they met in Sydney, Australia at a party. Kelly had just moved to Oz and Simon was the very first boy she met there.
It was on a trip to Scotland that Simon decided to propose to Kelly. He planned a day touring the city and Edinburgh Castle, and they ended at Portobello beach. Since Kelly has always stolen all the red candies in any sweets they share, Simon popped the question with a red skittle. She thought it was hilarious and perfect, and of course said ‘Yes!’
The bride had always wanted to get married on a private beach. With family and friends coming from around the world, they literally just spun the globe and chose to have a destination wedding in the Mayan Riviera of Mexico. It was an area they had never visited before and that made it more exciting!
Their wedding day vision was for everyone to have fun, and thanks to their wedding planner, Sofia Garcia, this is exactly what they got at the Blue Venado Club. The bride tells us that she wishes she could relive every moment of it again.
Kelly and Simon chose to have a traditional handfasting ceremony to symbolize their connection and devotion to each other. The ritual was led by Anna at Riviera Maya Officiant.
