Love crosses national boundaries at Estepona wedding

REF_0698-1024x681

Though they live in Dublin, where they met, Agnieszka and Tommy found love across the borders. She hails from Poland and he is a local lad, and together they are a lovely couple who just want to be together.

For their wedding they chose the sun. That is to say, Spain, and in particular the Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Encarnación in Marbella. This beautiful church in the atmospheric old town of Marbella was a wonderful setting for the wedding, and the maze of streets and squares around it were just perfect for the wedding photos.

A Spanish summer’s fairy tale wedding

REF_06241-1024x681

The cynics among you might say romance is gone but I know it’s alive and well. I see it at every wedding I am privileged to be a part of: romance, love and the special bond between two people and their circles of family and friends. These are the things that make the world go round, and it does me good to be a part of so many beautiful days.

Add the sunny weather and the beautiful settings to choose from and you can see why people travel from across Europe to get married in Southern Spain. Natalia and Andreas came with their loved ones from Norway to enjoy their special moment in the sun. To be fair, it was a hot summer’s day, but it all came off so beautifully that I think we all rocked.  A true fairy tale wedding! Read more

What an amazing couple. Heather and Jason came over from Ireland with their friends and family to share a fantastic moment in Nerja. Unusually, for June, it was a somewhat cloudy day, but this couldn’t dampen spirits as these people love life – and each other – too much.

We may not have been able to order the sun out on the day, but everything else was picture perfect, courtesy of Jenny (www.spanishweddingplanner.com), who combines American drive and perfectionism with a lot of years’ experience planning weddings in Spain. Read more

I am used to dealing with happy, excited couples surrounded by their loved ones, but Rachel and Peter stole the show recently with a truly inspiring wedding held at the Don Carlos under the Marbella sun.

They wanted to celebrate their wedding in Marbella, in sunny, romantic surroundings that would be private and intimate, and when they saw Finca la Concepción they knew they had found it.

September Wedding in Spain

Finca Concepción, on the country road between Marbella and the little town of Istán on the Costa del Sol, can be a real fairytale setting in autumn. And so it was on the day Sheena and David came here to be wed. OK, the day was overcast and dull by our standards, but it was dry, the temperature gentle and the setting simply fantastic. Read more

An Autumn wedding in the Marbella sun

When you see the photos of Charlotte and Ashley’s wedding you think it’s a professional shoot. You see, these two are so good-looking and photogenic that you’d think they’re models, part of a fashion shoot in some exotic location. The exotic location, in fact, was the lovely Puente Romano Hotel on Marbella’s Golden Mile, and the occasion was not a photo shoot but the real-life wedding of two lovely people from London.

Getting married in the Spanish sunshine

People choose to get married in Spain because they like the idea of getting married in the sun, perhaps within earshot of waves breaking on the shore or within sight of stunning country scenery. They come to the Costa del Sol because they’re (almost) certain of a rain-free day, because the bright weather helps spirits rise and because the lifestyle encourages them to let their hair down and have a great time. They also like the pretty little churches they exchange their vows in and the picturesque Andalusian villages and historic quarters that are just made for wedding photography. But I think that above all, people love to get married in Marbella because it is such a romantic place. Read more
