Beautiful destination wedding in Marbella

June 17, 2018 ,

I recently had the pleasure of being flown to Marbella to take photos at the gorgeous Rose and Joel’s wedding at the Gran Melia Don Pepe in Marbella. Destination weddings sound glamorous but actually there are more elements to think about: travelling with equipment, heat, unfamiliar venues etc that add a bit of stress to the day. I flew to Malaga on the morning of their wedding and had my camera and lenses with me onboard so I knew they would get with me safely but the worry of delayed flights and travelling meant that I wasn’t quite my cool, calm and collected self when I arrived. Rose however put me completely at ease from the moment I arrived and I got to spend a lot longer with Rose and the girls getting ready than I normally would as there was another photographer taking care of the guys. Also with this being my first Jewish wedding there were a few traditions that I wasn’t so familiar with so there was a lot of running around and trying to be in the right place at the right time. That being said the wedding was early evening so we didn’t have the harsh sunlight and the heat to deal with and the ceremony was held in a beautiful Chuppa overlooking the Mediterranean Sea so you couldn’t have asked for more from a location. The bride was stunning and everyone in the wedding party looked like they had stepped off a movie set. We were on a tight schedule and didn’t have as much time as I would have liked for the ‘couple shots’ but we managed to go down to the Boardwalk just by the beach and I managed to get some great candid shots of Rose and Joel spending a little bit of quality time together. The Israeli dancing before the reception was amazing and I’ve never experienced such fun and energy with a group of wedding guests before. I must admit I struggled a bit to catch all of the action. I think I needed a pair of step ladders to see inside the crowds of excited, dancing and jumping guests to see everything that was going on. Here are a couple of my favourite shots from the day and I will be sharing more of the wedding photography with you soon. Congratulations Rose and Joel, here is to a lifetime of happiness together, mazel tof xxx
