Leianne and Willy, Casa Chanty Beach Villa, Destination Wedding, Playa del Carmen

Casa Chanty036

It’s the start of a new year and the start of a new, married life for Scottish couple Leianne and Willy.

Tucked away in a little known, secluded beach that is part the wonderfully named Playa del Secreto, they had a beautiful Mayan ceremony hosted by Casa Chanty and led by Shaman don Eduardo. This intimate gathering took place on the white sandy beach under a brilliant blue sky that perfectly matched the blue and white of our Scottish couple’s Saltire flag theme.

After the ceremony it was time for a beach party with a Mexican buffet and grill provided by Chef Ruben Lopez (Sinfonia Culinaria).
