Oooh I love a real wedding and I love unique weddings and especially looking through photo albums and today I’ve got a stunner for you from the dynamic duo that is A Brit & A Blonde wedding photographers.  

This is the kind of wedding I adore – everything about its screams simplicity, natural, elegance and a whole lot of fun.  This wedding proves that when you put in just the right amount of ingredients, it becomes spectacular.

Sophi and Jon were married in Tamarindo, Costa Rica {sounds divine}.  They had their wedding on one of Costa Rica’s most popular, most stunning surf destinations and Bride Sophi steals the show with her beautiful big eyes, bright smile and fun personality.

And it has my latest obsession in it: an alternative altar, sitting right on the beach!

From the dynamic duo A Brit & A Blonde

Sophi and Jon are both high powered Manhattan lawyers – and let me tell you they certainly know how to throw a great party and dance the night away. They met in college. They always found themselves chatting all night long together and tuning the world out whenever they went out with their crew of friends. After college, Jon moved to New York to ask Sophi out. He could not let the girl of his dreams slip away.

The wedding took place in Tamarindo – Playa Langosta on the beach and the reception at the drop-dead-gorgeous Villa Marrakech. Honestly as far as Villas go – this one is pretty darn spectacular. Each room was stunning. I may or may not have considered hiding out behind some curtains after the night was over, just to be able to wake up in such a gorgeous place, have a croissant for breakfast and take a dip in the fab pool. You walk into this place and instantly you are on vacation. A very awesome luxe vacation.

Any wedding that ends up with the bridesmaids jumping into the pool is a top notch uber fun wedding in our books!

The very talented wedding planners at Tropical Occasions created such a beautiful night. Hats off to Alessandra and her crew that thought of every detail. Such a fun wedding cake by a great cake designer in Costa Rica Victoria Zoch- with a cake topper depicting Jon & Sophi on surfboards – the details of her hair and dress are so spot on!! Love their DIY polaroid photo booth to create a guest book.

Frabjous creatives involved in the wedding:

I L-O-V-E the concept of this album: hire a photo booth, get your guests to take snapshots during the day, place them in the album and then write their message.  What a stunning memory of the day!

When it comes to stunning photography, awesome composition and a creative eye – this is what you get. The photo above is soooooo romantic and soooooo beautiful and soooooo ‘better be’ on their wall at home 🙂


Sophi & Jon’s wedding photographs tell a wonderful story of the day thanks to the stunning images caught by the dynamic duo behind the cameras and it leaves you with a feeling that you know the couple are blissfully happy.



I’ve never followed trends as I disliked being just one of the crowd so my love for things that are different, unusual, beautiful and stylistic that I’d had all my life transformed into Alice in Weddingland.
