An Andalusian wedding with a touch of Polynesia

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.”

 

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.

A country wedding in Southern Spain

It was like one of those romantic movies where friends and family come together in the countryside in Provence or Tuscany, only in this case the setting was Casares in our own stunning Andalusian countryside. The mountains, greenery and white village close by provided a backdrop that was certainly worthy of a movie, and I think the beautiful Sonia, her proud groom John and their (large) following were definitely impressed.

Marbella wedding – from Austria to the water’s edge

Marbella wedding – from Austria to the water’s edge

This lovely couple from Austria sure know how to pick ‘em. Firstly, each other, of course, but also the venue, the weather and the day itself. I think you can tell this was one of those days when it all comes together beautifully for a truly special moment. From the water’s edge at the stylish La Cabâne beach club at Hotel Los Monteros, Marbella put on its best weather and looked wonderful sparkling in the distance, and bride and groom looked gorgeous and dashing respectively.
