I am getting married in Bermuda, and we are going there by cruise ship. The wedding is on the island, but I really wanted to get professional shots of us on the ship. My venue is a 45min ride from where the ship is docked, so it would be hard to go there after the ceremony and before the reception. Should we see eachother before the ceremony to take pics on the ship? Or skip the ship pics? Has anyone else broken tradition?

There is a whole thread, recent - won't be hard to find - about seeing your groom before the wedding.  It's a 50/50 toss up on what to do. Some are, some aren't.  I would suggest doing it after your reception, but by then you would be exhausted and possibly sweaty (hehe).  In your case, if the two of you are comfortable, it wouldn't be a bad idea.   Let us know what you decide.

Thanks, I will look for the thread! I'm soo torn, I feel like, this will be my only wedding, it would be nice to see his face when I walk down the isle. But on the other hand, I would love pics by the ships grand staircase. After the reception would probably be best, but I'm pretty sure we will both look terrible then!

I totally understand 100%. We have decided that our reactions as I walk down the isle are the most important to us.

The only other thing I can suggest is that you do it the next day?

How long is your ship docked for? How long is your reception? What about doing photos separately, say with parents and wedding party , on the ship's staircase? I know some of them are beautiful. But are you docked that long that you won't be able to go back to the ship and do a few shots together on the stairs?


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

The ship is actually docked in Bermuda for 3 days, but if my reception is over at 11:00pm, and it's a 45 min ride back to the ship, I was thinking the ships photography will be closed. I would want professional shots. I wonder if I can arrange to have one of the ships photographers take our pics that late. I'm going to call their wedding department and ask..
