Malaga Wedding Photography
Once in a while I’m lucky enough to travel overseas to shoot an amazing destination wedding, last weekend was one of those times. Elizabeth & John regularly holiday down on the beautiful coastal town of Benalmádena in southern Spain and so decided to get married there too.
I flew out a few days before the wedding to give me enough time to scout the venue locations and enjoy a little sun. Elizabeth and her bridesmaids spent the morning of the wedding at her parent’s apartment, they enjoyed a nice relaxing couple of hours and prepared themselves for what was set to be an amazing day ahead.
Castillo De Colomares Wedding Ceremony
Castillo de Colomares is a stunning monument, in the form of a castle, dedicated to the life and adventures of Christopher Colombus. John was already at the Castillo when I arrived, he was trying to keep cool greeting family and friends and awaiting the ceremony ahead. Elizabeth and her girls arrived shortly after and made the short walk down the aisle to meet John to say their vows. As you can imagine, it was a pretty hot day but the guests sat and enjoyed the readings, the ring exchange and finally the first kiss. The couple exited the ceremony and we went for a wander around the Castillo for some portraits as did the guests.
Torrequebrada Golf Club
A short time later, we arrived at the Torrequebrada Golf Club where the couple formally welcomed their guests to their wedding. The guests then spent a few hours chatting, lounging in the afternoon sun, and enjoying all the refreshments they could drink. Tapas was then served for the wedding breakfast followed by a round of speeches and then a delicious Paella course. I then whisked the couple onto a golf buggy for a few portraits around the course before their evening party began. As it was a lovely warm evening, the couple enjoyed their first dance in the gardens before partying the night away with their family and friends.
It’s always great fun to shoot a wedding but even more so in the company of lovely people and in a gorgeously sunny location. Massive Congratulations to Elizabeth & John for having me with you on your wedding adventure, I hope that you had an amazing day!
