A wedding in Nerja, steeped in tradition
When young Sue and Gary chose Nerja as the setting for their wedding, it was in the first instance to honour the wish of Sue’s father, who had died several years before. As a result, this was an emotional as well as joyous occasion, but the bride’s dad had known his stuff, because Nerja is a wonderfully romantic spot that is becoming more and more popular among foreign couples.
The wedding ceremony itself was held at the El Salvador church near the Balcón de Europa in the heart of Nerja. This picturesque 17th century church is a real delight, and its location so close to the famous Balcón is just made for stunning wedding photography. Naturally we made the most of that before going on to the reception at the Marinas de Nerja beach hotel and spa.
Another great venue and setting for a festive occasion, courtesy of the hotel and its helpful staff, and the organisational skills and attention to detail of Sue Danker. Sue is the wedding planner of Spanish Dream Weddings and publisher of the Spains Wedding Guide magazine, so she can rightly be called an expert in her field. Needless to say, the venue looked lovely and everything ran like clockwork.
All the guests had to do was focus on enjoying themselves in the lovely warmth of a Spanish September wedding. Sue has found a new gem in Amanda Rosier, a talented young singer who provided the entertainment on the night.
I’m happy for Sue and Gary that it all went so well because they are a lovely couple, and I’ve included some collages that form part of the wedding album we did for them.
