A Spanish summer’s fairy tale wedding

The cynics among you might say romance is gone but I know it’s alive and well. I see it at every wedding I am privileged to be a part of: romance, love and the special bond between two people and their circles of family and friends. These are the things that make the world go round, and it does me good to be a part of so many beautiful days.

Add the sunny weather and the beautiful settings to choose from and you can see why people travel from across Europe to get married in Southern Spain. Natalia and Andreas came with their loved ones from Norway to enjoy their special moment in the sun. To be fair, it was a hot summer’s day, but it all came off so beautifully that I think we all rocked.  A true fairy tale wedding! Read more

You see, these two are so good-looking and photogenic that you’d think they’re models, part of a fashion shoot in some exotic location. The exotic location, in fact, was the lovely Puente Romano Hotel on Marbella’s Golden Mile, and the occasion was not a photo shoot but the real-life wedding of two lovely people from London.
