Jennifer and Niraj opted for a magical celebration in the jungle, surrounded by lots of green and wood, which Naha, this amazing and special place, definitely offers, giving the Indian and magical touch to the wedding. Joining Jewish and Hindu traditions, these two families got to together to celebrate Jennifer and Niraj’s love. And who believes in miracles? Match.com made it possible! Congratulations and lots of Love!

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).
