Romantic Summer Wedding in Marbella
Karen and her fiancé got in touch with me from their home in Liverpool. They wanted to celebrate their wedding in Marbella, in sunny, romantic surroundings that would be private and intimate, and when they saw Finca la Concepción they knew they had found it. This beautiful spot on the edge of Marbella, where the country road leads to the little mountain village of Istán, was just the place they had been hoping for.
It’s a beautiful historic estate surrounded by fantastic gardens, so I can easily see why they were so excited, and it didn’t let them down on the day. It was a fantastic backdrop for a beautiful day full of emotion, happiness and – from my perspective – stunning moments to capture. Karen looked beautiful, her groom like the luckiest man in the world and their friends and family revelled in this moment too. Lizzy Marriage gave a lot of heart and humanity to the wedding ceremony, as she always does, and the floral arrangements by Maxine4flowers complimented the floral beauty of the garden around us. After a day filled with emotion and touching moments people let their hair down and enjoyed themselves till late in the night, helped in no small part by DJ Rob, who ‘Rocked the House’ with his usual vigour and understanding of what creates a fantastic atmosphere.
As for me, well on the one hand it was hard work to keep up with so many special moments, but we photographers just love that. Even so, I’m very grateful for Karen’s kind words and happy that I could play my part in this day and the memories that come from it.
“We had seen pics of La Finca on the internet, they were pictures that you had produced previously and it just looked beautiful, we knew we wanted sun and somewhere private. La Finca looked just the place, when we went to visit it a year before our wedding I cried as soon as I arrived, it was just perfect. The 18th century white washed house just also gave this stunning place a bit of vintage – it was just perfect! It had to be out venue.”
”I had looked at David Toms photography a few times. His work really looked amazing, so when he was recommended to us by a friend we decided to go with him. David was so helpful and catering to our wants and needs! He even helped me with picking entertainment for our reception. I couldn’t be happier that we chose him as our photographer, he put me at ease from the minute he arrived at the hotel that morning. He was so enthusiastic, friendly and kept the wedding party laughing! I couldn’t be happier with the pictures he produced, they are more than perfect and he even captured parts of the day that we missed! Amazing is the word that comes to mind. Thank you David. X”
