Little Corn Island is a secluded island off the coast of Nicaragua – the perfect place for your elopement or wedding – and a photographer’s dream. And when I say secluded… I had to take a flight to one island and then a small fishing boat to get there. This is where I met Caitlin and Riley last year.
I was walking through the jungle one evening when I passed this couple that were quite obviously in love. I had been keeping my eye out for a couple to do a session with and this was my chance. It took me about 10 seconds after passing them but I knew I had to do it. I turned myself around, ran up to them and asked if they would be interested in a couple session on the beach. Since I’m writing this now I’m sure you know what they said – YES!!!
We met up that evening just as the sun was setting and walked along the beach together as we chatted and played in the water. I found out they were actually staying at the same little boutique hotel I was. Which you should definitely go check out if you’re looking for somewhere to stay on the island! They have the cutest little cabinas on the beach, the staff were so helpful and the food was AMAZING.
The thing about Little Corn is you can walk around the whole island in one day and still never get bored. Such a dream place for a Nicaragua wedding photographer.
There’s a lighthouse you can climb to the top of to get a full 360 view of the island. Probably one of the most amazing views you can find. The locals are the friendliest people you’ll ever meet – one local even gave me his horse for the day! And OMG the mangoes. Those alone make me want to go back. There are mango trees all over the place here and they are the freshest, juiciest and sweetest mangoes you’ll ever taste. I swear by it. I also went snorkelling one day just outside of my hotel and saw all kinds of beautiful fish, lobster, and starfish.
Tucked away from the rest of the world, this island is the perfect place to get married.
There aren’t any vehicles on the island, it has the clearest water you’ve ever seen and endless spots for you to soak up the sun and completely relax.
