A selection of photos from weddings at El Oceano, Costa del Sol
A sensual seaside setting is not surprisingly a much-favoured location for weddings. Let’s face it, it doesn’t get much more romantic than hearing the waves break and having an open panorama of sea, sky and distant views before you.
One of my absolute favourite locations for wedding photography on the Costa del Sol is El Oceano, both for its unequalled natural setting and the very special place that the team led by Glenn has made it.
This family-run boutique hotel sits on a spectacular bend of the coast at Calahonda, midway between Marbella and Fuengirola. Jutting out as it does, you get a very secluded and private stretch of beach and a parabolic sweep of views that are simply stunning. For a photographer, this is a great place to be, but it’s even better for couples and wedding parties. There’s just something about the place that adds a magical touch, and I’ve been lucky enough to capture both the beautiful scenery and the effect it has on newlyweds.
I can’t say enough good things about the family that run this lovely spot on the Costa del Sol. Husband and wife team Glenn and Jordana, wholeheartedly supported by Jordana’s parents John and Lorraine, run an efficient and professional operation, but also one with great heart. They have created a beautiful venue complete with lovely rooms and suites, Jacuzzi and other spa facilities, and an acclaimed restaurant that is especially famous for beachside dining.
In other words, a perfect setting for a wedding, and the entire team leave no stone unturned to make sure your special day not only looks great and runs smoothly, but is full of highlights and wonderful memories.
It’s a great place to work and an even better place to get married!
