Gissou + Kambiz's destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico was pure magic! The contemporary style of the Le Blanc Resort was a simple & modern backdrop for this luxe Persian wedding. As Cancun wedding photographers, it’s always inspiring to shoot at new locations. Combine that with a stunning bride, a groom who loves photography, & tons of energy and laughter, and this wedding was a wedding photographers’ dream. Plus there were belly dancers!
We love the traditions of Persian wedding. The elaborate lushness of the Sofreh with its important symbolism, the way that every family member is included in the marriage ceremony, and the feeding of honey to each other - a ritual to signify that from now on, the bride & groom will provide each other with sweetness and sustenance in their lives together.
We also love all the dancing! There is the Persian knife dance before the cutting of the cake, the money dance, and the traditional belly dancing as entertainment. Lots of movement and events at the reception creates so many opportunities for great photography; we love capturing all the energy!
This Persian wedding in Cancun, Mexico was a featured destination wedding in the Canadian luxury wedding publication Perfect Wedding Magazine.

Since the day we first stuck our toes into the warm Mexican Caribbean waters almost 20 years ago, we always knew the Mayan Riviera was our destiny as photographers. Now all these years later we love returning to our home near Cancun and photographing weddings from Cancun to Isla Mujeres to Tulum to Bacalar. As wedding photographers in Mexico, our favorite luxury wedding venues in Cancun and the Riviera Maya include Le Blanc Spa Resort, Nizuc Resort & Spa, Rosewood Mayakoba, Fairmont Mayakoba, Banyan Tree Mayakoba, Belmond Maroma Resort, Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya, Viceroy Riviera Maya, Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort, The Ritz-Carlton Cancun, Grand Bahia Principe Tulum.
