A very special wedding at La Virginia Marbella
All wedding days are special, but Robert and Ivanka’s had something truly magical about it. A large part of this was due to the very special connection the couple had with their lovely venue, La Virginia, where they got married in the little church designed and built by Robert’s dad. Both his parents have passed away, so this beautiful chapel is full of meaning for Robert and the fitting place for Ivanka and himself to exchange their vows before the officiating celebrant Kurt Kettner-Borough.
La Virginia is one of my favourite spots, and on the day more than ever. The organisation by wedding planners Marbella Wedding Angels was, as always, first class, and things got started with cocktails and canapés provided by La Tienda before we all set off to the beachside reception at El Oceano. After the atmospheric photos I took of the couple at La Virginia we now strolled onto the beach for some lovely romantic images.
Ivanka was the picture of a beautiful bride, with hair and make-up by Beso, so she and the well turned out Robert made my work easy for me, especially since they radiate happiness. Back at El Oceano things looked just right, with flowers by Maxine4flowers and the decoration by Gorgeous Event Decoration. The eye-catching cake was by Cake Creations by Bettina. By now you can see how many people worked together to make this such an amazing day, and the list is even bigger, with entertainment coming from Amanda Rosa, Johnny Baker, the Masquerade Duo and fire dancers Nahuel and Lia.
All these people, combined with Robert and Ivanka’s friends and family, helped to make it a very special day for the couple that began at La Virginia and continued through a lively after party at Vibes in La Cala. A day to remember for a long time!
Some very kind words from Robert and Ivanka themselves:
“David Toms was absolutely the right guy for this challenging job. No one else could have captured so impressively all the special moments of our big day. From the very beginning with the brides preparations, over to the ceremony and canapés and then finally at the reception with the whole crowd partying – he was there taking photos of all essentials. It was also fun to get his instructions and do the crazy stuff you normally wouldn’t do for a picture – but it was definitely worth it! Great preparations, hard work and a creative eye on the day and then overwhelming editing of the images. Superb! Keep up the great work David!”
