A May wedding at a Spanish cortijo
It may be hard to believe, but this May it actually rained a little – as on the day of this wedding. Now you might think that would have spoiled the fun, but no way. Kathe and Robert, a lovely, fun-loving couple from Norway took it in their stride, and it turned out to be a great and joyous day surrounded by loved ones who’d come all the way from Norway, where it is was much colder anyway.
Kathe, a fitness trainer, and Robert, a former Olympic wrestler, are both in great shape, but what’s most impressive is their happy attitude to life, and each other. The temperature was pleasant and everything looked stunning, so a couple of spots of rain couldn’t dampen the atmosphere. Lisa of Bella Weddings had, as usual, done a great job arranging things and getting everything just right. I love working with her, she’s a great lady and she really puts her heart and soul into it.
Doug of Silver Screen Weddings did the video and Vicky of Marriage Wedding Services performed the ceremony at the lovely Cortijo del Cortes in Benahavis, where Michelle of Gorgeous Event Decoration had added fantastic finishing touches and Flowers by Lisa had created beautiful floral bouquets. It all looked just right and made my work as a photographer so much easier – as did the handsome couple with their cute children.
Staying at Villa El Cid, they really enjoyed getting married in the romantic atmosphere of Andalucía, and in true style had a ball at the reception and party that followed. Amanda Wilcox provided the live music, and what a voice she has, while Rob was brilliant as ever as the DJ who feels the mood of the crowd like no other. A fantastic day to be a part of and it produced some great visuals, which I’m glad Kathe loved as well. She described the experience as her ‘fairytale wedding’, and what could be better than that?
“Thank you so much for the pictures, they were just amazing!!! It was really nice to work with you, I don’t normally feel comfortable when someone takes my picture, but you made me relaxed and I didn’t feel stupid:) you are such a nice and fun person and I have got a lot of feedback from our guests that they thought you really seemed to love your job:) and from the results of the pictures I couldn’t agree more!! You have really captured the moments, and in many of them I almost feel like I can see what I was thinking!! The pictures will give us so much joy for the rest of our lives, thank you so much David!!”
