Thinking of ways to make your Turks and Caicos destination wedding or honeymoon even more memorable? Consider a trash the dress photoshoot to commemorate your special day!

Trash the dress photo shoots are currently one of the most popular wedding photography trends in the Turks and Caicos Islands, according to David Gallardo of the award-winning Brilliant Studios. While it is nontraditional, trash the dress shoots are a fun and romantic way for couples to capture memories while immersing in the Turks and Caicos Islands natural environment – quite literally! Brilliant Studios’ iconic and stunning trash the dress photographs have often gone viral on social media and have graced the pages of magazines around the world. The Tourist Board has used many of their stunning photography in publications such as Destination Bliss and the Bridal Guide.

Newlyweds can take the plunge in garments purchased specifically for this photoshoot after the ceremony, or restage their exact wedding look during their honeymoon or on their anniversary.

Turks and Caicos has all the key elements that make a trash the dress photoshoot ideal. The clear turquoise waters surrounding our islands and cays provide perfect visibility. In Providenciales, most of the trash the dress photo sessions are done on Grace Bay Beach. Turks and Caicos also averages 350 days of sunshine per year, making the weather conditions ideal and the islands the perfect location for this unique snapshot.
