Romance in Andalucía – the perfect wedding setting

Romance in Andalucía – the perfect wedding setting

Getting married in a romantic setting in the Andalusian countryside makes it a memory that will stay with you forever. This happy couple from the UK had it all come together beautifully on their wedding day. Friends and family surrounded them and the sun was shining as they married in a quaint little church in the lovely white village of Frigiliana, in the Axarquia region, west of Málaga.

And then something most un-Andalusian happened…it started raining. Fortunately my good friend Scott Gibbons of Sunshine Weddings Spain was the wedding organiser, because in true style this experienced pro immediately came up with an emergency plan and everything continued to run smoothly. The shower was soon over and with the sun back in its familiar place the party went on to the Hotel Cortijo Bravo.

This gorgeous cortijo makes the most of an Andalusian country setting, blending charm with the elegance of Spanish-Moorish architecture. With nature and panoramic views all around you, good service and fine food, it is a wonderful place to hold a wedding reception – and ideal for capturing great shots. Mind you, Frigiliana is pretty photogenic too, as were the couple and their party, so I had nothing to complain about.

However, a bout of rain can change everything on a wedding day, but it also offered opportunities for some stunning, moody photography that we naturally jumped on. The flower arrangements by Shona Stevenson of Bunches Florist in Fuengirola were so appealing that I had to single them out too, before capturing the atmosphere and party that wedding entertainer Ian Preston expertly helped to create. All in all a beautiful wedding in a magnificent setting…
