An Andalusian wedding with a touch of Polynesia

REF_0017

Picture a beautiful day in Southern Spain; perfect temperatures, blissful sunshine and a blue sky that bodes well for a very special moment in the lives of Zara and William. Having travelled from County Donegal in Ireland with their friends and family – and no doubt left the wind and rain behind – arriving in Marbella basking in the sun must have set the tone for a wonderful time.

For the wedding ceremony they had chosen the charming Nuestra Senora de los Remedios in Estepona’s lovely old town centre. With this sweet venue they got a wonderful priest to perform the ceremony. Clearly a people’s person, he even hugged the couple halfway through the ceremony.

Zara and William are a great couple. She’s lovely and he’s easy-going and calm – a real life fisherman from Ireland! They had done much of the organising themselves, but with a bit of help from yours truly sorting out some bits and bobs for them everything worked out perfectly.

The beautiful bride and her man were a pleasure to work with, as were the cheerful Irish guests that ventured on with them to Tikitano. As evening fell at this wonderful venue on the water’s edge, the light cast the coastline in a wonderful spell. The Polynesian touches of Tikitano added an exotic, tropical touch that was a perfect addition to a Spanish day and a gorgeous Andalusian wedding.

With such a setting and such a good-looking and well-natured couple to work with the images almost made themselves. The setting certainly helped to inspire me, and I’m pleased that Zara and William felt the same way.

From the bride:

“Me and William want to thank you for everything you did before and during the wedding. First of all, thank you for being so helpful to us when we were out in February. You helped us find the best suppliers in the business and we’re so thankful for that as they helped make our day so perfect.

On the day of the wedding what can I say, you were amazing. Every part of the day was so relaxed as I spent most of the time laughing at you. You helped keep me calm when you could see I was getting stressed, you were so professional it never felt staged at all. Everything was so relaxed and natural, and you can really see that through our photos you captured the day perfectly. I am so glad you were available to photograph our wedding day as I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else. All our family enjoyed your company as well. Everyone loved how fun but also professional you were to be around.”
