Getting married by the sea – El Oceano, Mijas
Ok, I know the Mediterranean is not an ocean, but this wonderful wedding was right on the beach’s edge at El Oceano Beach Hotel, so you know what I mean. It’s such a great venue and Glen and his staff were brilliant, as ever. The couple, Holly and Paul, live locally, so they are used to a thing or two when it comes to sunshine and seascapes, but this was a particularly beautiful day, and when you’re having cocktails by the pool and dinner by the sea the world is a fantastic place.
That was the overall mood, and it gave an extra sparkle to the images. Everything looked so great, including the big, airy marquee, the bouquet arrangements by Zoe of Flowers Inc. in Nueva Andalucia and the cool cake by Wedding Cakes in Spain. In this fantastic setting right on the beach with panoramic views across the sea everything somehow seemed just that little bit more special, and after a touching ceremony by Lizzy Marriage there was quite a line-up of musical entertainment with the likes of Quikki Navara, Johnny Baker and Arran.
We’d had a real laugh doing the shoot on the beach and everyone partied on till late to make this a truly memorable day, so I’m really glad Holly loved the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.
“When choosing our photographer it was an obvious and easy choice for us to make. Having known David for over 8 years when he has photographed all our family events and birthdays, I was sure I wanted him to photograph the most special day in my life. He is so professional yet friendly and easy going. He makes all your guests feel special and at ease. There is no obstacle that can get in his way or any angle he can’t reach. Every picture was so creative and beautiful. I was overwhelmed with all my pictures as were my guests. Well done David your work is phenomenal.”
