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.

Ronda wedding magic

This beautiful country town just over half an hour inland from Marbella somehow forms the perfect backdrop for a wedding. Not surprisingly, it’s a popular wedding destination, and not just with local couples. Luke and Marie Clare chose Ronda as the setting for their spring wedding, and the friends and family who travelled with them soon saw why.

Picture this: crowds gathering outside a pretty old whitewash and stone church in the gorgeous historic quarter of Ronda. The spring weather is sunny but not too hot to wilt the flowers in the groomsmen’s buttonholes or the glow on the ladies’ faces. Bright colours abound and offset the clear white of the bride’s dress as she enters the scene. Needless to say, it was a beautiful moment, and one where I was hard-pressed to keep up with all the fantastical visuals that were coming my way – but I think I managed. Read more
