A touch of bliss at Finca La Concepción Marbella Wedding

Finca La Concepción Marbella Wedding

It was early June, a warm balmy day in Marbella with lots of that bright sunny light. Carmel and Jon, a young couple who currently live in Hong Kong, had chosen this spot on the south coast of Spain for their wedding, and as they made their way over from the Far East their friends and family were joining them from the UK.

As you can see, they’re a happy, good-looking couple, so all I had to do was capture the moments. The hard thing here was keeping up, because this was a day full of emotion, with both laughter and tender moments. Carmel looked lovely, her styling and makeup done by Lorraine of Princess Bride.

In reality I formed part of a team that worked together to help make this a great experience for all those there, and the bride and groom in particular of course. The venue was one of my favourites: Finca La Concepción, catering was by Fiesta Sol, the wedding cake by Debbie Sheridan and the live music was provided with lots of verve by the Costa Sol band.

Together, they all contributed to a great day in a wonderful setting that seems just made for this kind of event. I can still remember the expression on the people’s faces – the groom above all – when the bride walked into the chapel area, and the smiles and laughter as Carmel’s dad made his speech. I don’t know, there’s just something about days like this that brings out the best in people.

Apparently that applies to me too, because I got more than my fair share of praise for my work. I’m just glad my images helped capture the memories for Carmel and Jon, but the kind words of the bride and her mum are very much appreciated.

We looked at the photos last night and I have to say you are the best. They are amazing and the photographs of the wedding couple in particular are just superb. As Peter said, it really has been a pleasure working with you because you are not only a fantastic photographer but you are also one of the nicest people we have met through this entire process. Thanks again for doing such a great job and we all loved you and your work.” Mother of the Bride

“Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special. The photos are magical and will enable us to treasure the memories of this amazing day forever. You have a gift and we are lucky to have found it. xx” Carmel
