Romantic Weddings in Spain

The Wedding of Billie & Billy in Málaga

Billie & Billy met as teenagers at the family home of Billy (‘boy’ - as he is affectionately known by friends) in Periana where Billie (‘girl’) was visiting on holiday. It may have started as a holiday romance, but it certainly lasted… They remained close once Billie returned to England and with the support of their families maintained their relationship across two countries that included visits. Billy boy credits the invention of the Nokia 3210 in their being able to maintain long distance contact with each other, Billie girl has a slightly more romantic tale.

The support and love of their families was a central theme of the day and the warmth was easy to feel and bear witness to.



We absolutely love the photos guys!!! They are gorgeous!!! The lighting, the backgrounds. Just beautiful.

I get tearful just looking at them, I just love them.

- Billie



Billie & Billy later lived together in rural Greece and Spain before moving to live in London with their Greek rescue dog Nicos who accompanied the best man down the aisle.

Helen and Billie have been friends for some time, although I know them personally through their business as artisanal carpenters and our shared love of alfresco dining that has led to many an evening in Malaga and London sampling wine, tapas and bbq food. I (Sam) do build a surprising number of my relationships through food... indeed during their engagement photo shoot in Malaga city we took a break for tapas!

One of the great things about being a wedding photographers in Malaga is the huge range of venues that we get to discover. Along with the incredible light and views across the region, this has been one of the reasons that we call Spain ‘home’. The raised vantage point from Billy´s family home gave phenomenal views of the rugged landscape of El Cañuelo and Periana across the Sierras de Tejeda and the distant sea view across Vélez-Malaga.

Their wedding day was a true reflection of themselves; relaxed, full of kindness, warmth, great music , food and company. They partied late into the night and enjoyed every moment of their beautiful Malaga wedding day in June. 

The wedding of Billie and Billy was shot on digital and 35mm film cameras. Please see our 35mm film page for more information about how you can incorporate film images into your wedding day.

We hope you enjoy this small glimpse into their beautiful wedding in the hills of Vélez-Malaga.

The Andalucian Lakes Styled Shoot, Istan

In order to improve our own work and push our own ideas and practises further we are endlessly researching the work of photographers past and present as well as that of stylists and planners. One thing that we aim to never do is to stand still in our attitude to our work, we never stop trying to improve and hone our craft. 

The workshop was co-created by Laura Charles and Claire White. Already knowing Laura of Reviva Weddings - her reputation as one of the top wedding planners in Spain speaks for itself and is well deserved. She was an architect of the upmarket destination wedding industry in Southern Spain and yet remains one of its’ most prestigious yet contemporary planners.

Claire is the founder of Butler and White. Since arriving on the coast we have closely followed her work and were rightly very excited to work with her.

What we particularly like about both Laura and Claire is that neither of them are willing to stand still despite the successes they have encountered as a byproduct of the love of their trade and craft.

To cut a long story short; upon learning that Laura and Claire were planning this photographic event we ensured that we were the first to sign up; we wanted to grow our own practise, experiences, network and most of all keep out of our comfort zone and experience something new and different.

It was a beautiful event and one of the many ways in which Helen and I are forever looking to constantly improve our practise.

A huge thank you to all of the suppliers involved in making the event such a success:
