The Wedding of Lilla and James at Villa Padierna Palace Hotel & Bronzzzano Beach Club

‘Dear Sam

I can’t put into words how happy you made me with the photos. I just want to say the biggest thank you, we really appreciate you and your work.’ - Lilla

It was a beautiful June day as I arrived at Villa Padierna, ready to meet Lilla and her bridesmaids; it is easy to describe Villa Padierna as a beautiful venue, but you would miss it’s quirks and hidden beauty within that statement, I would prefer to call it a gem and the suite I found myself for Lilla’s preparation photographs was no exception - understated elegance is the theme throughout. The small sign outside states that VP is voted the most beautiful hotel in Spain - it is a fair award.

Lilla and James know the area well having met only a stones throw away from their chosen venues. They lived here for some time before moving to the UK for work commitment. I think that in their hearts they are lovers of the joys that Spanish life brings. I was impressed at how quickly Lilla jumps from her mother tongue of Hungarian through to English and Spanish. James is a gentle giant whose chipper ways are infectious to those around him and together they make a warm and kind hearted couple whose gratitude and kindness towards me on their day was rather humbling.

Lilla and James planned a beachside ceremony with their wedding reception at Bronzzzano Beach Club in Estepona; a modern beach side pool club with an outdoor ceremony area… here is a little glimpse into their day. You will also notice a few from their day scattered around our website and instagram page instagram.com/bloomfield_wedding_photography

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:
