The Wedding of Katherine and David at The Marbella Club Hotel - Villa Del Mar

Villa del Mar is the Marbella Club Hotel’s exclusive wedding venue, a quiet retreat nestled above the edge of the beachfront, incorporating vintage Andalusian external architecture alongside modern interiors, and a private pool with elevated views of the Mediterranean offering sites of the famous Marbella Club Bridge that later hosted their fireworks display. 

It is hard to put into a few short words how beautifully composed the wedding of Katherine and David at The Marbella Club Hotel’s Villa del Mar was, their day was expertly curated by Carla the founder of Tucco Weddings with the entire day being lavishly adorned with florals by Virginia Floristas. As a Marbella wedding photographer the day was truly a visual treat at one of our favourite wedding venues.

Katherine and David had certainly planned a beautiful day, but something that struck a chord with me was how they ensured that they spent time together just to talk and confide in each other. Whilst Helen concentrates on details and ambiance, I spend most of my time watching the couple looking for intimate, joyful and emotional moments...

After their ceremony instead of rushing to their guests, they stayed back, a flute of champagne in hand, they took a seat in the corner and simply talked and admired the ceremony area with the sound of the water features in the background. Only a few hours later they sat in a private garden to spend a few tranquil moments together, it was an endearing sight. That said, I am aware that they partied until the early hours of the next day surrounded by their friends and families.

Their kind and gentle nature could also be seen in the three unsolicited thank you emails that we received from Katherine and David upon receiving their sneak peak gallery and upon receiving their full wedding gallery.

This Marbella Club Hotel wedding was something very special indeed and so were the people involved in the day, it was an honour and a privilege to be a part of their day. We wish Katherine and David every possible happiness in the future.

Luxe Botanical Wedding Workshop - Shot on 35mm Film & Video

We were honoured to be asked to co-host the Botanical Luxe Wedding Workshop in Malaga last week with Laura from the Business of Weddings & Reviva Weddings.

Laura used her wealth of experience to show wedding planners both new and highly experienced, how she would arrange various stages of a wedding day. The attendees and suppliers spent their time building, organising and styling various elements of the day.

Helen at Bloomfield Photography whose skill as a photographic stylist has not gone unnoticed by wedding planners and venues in Spain and London, ran a workshop on how to create styled flat lays and ensured that everything looked as it should. You can see more of Helen´s photographic stylist work here.

We decided to use this workshop to showcase the re-introduction of film photography back into our wedding packages. You can find out a little more about film photography for your wedding day here. 35mm film is an essential part of our aesthetic as photographers and we are thrilled to be re-introducing it to our work.

After we photographed the attendees and the workshop itself we had a short portrait session - we hope you like the results of the film portraits on this gallery. If you would like to see more of the workshop itself please see our instagram page here.

We would like to thank all of the attendees, suppliers and collaborators who took part and made this styled workshop possible.

The Wedding of Valentina and Simon, La Cabane & Los Monteros

These wonderful people flew in from their home in a beautiful part of Southern California to get married at the exclusive La Cabane Beach Club at Los Monteros Hotel. They married just as the summer was ending and the autumn was about to begin; a time that lends itself well to beautiful sunsets and very warm, but not stiflingly hot evenings.

One of the great aspects of getting married in Southern Spain is the weather that accompanies. I believe the Californian, Canadian and Russian guests were all more than pleasantly surprised by the warm evening at an 8.30pm wedding.

One of the other unexpected joys of being a wedding photographer in Southern Spain is the variety of venues; La Cabane is a modern, chic venue with exquisite dining & catering, views of the Mediterranean, pretty Andalusian external architecture mixed with ultra modern internal facilities. It also has the added bonus of attached to a prestigious 5* hotel. It is a very different feel to some of the more rustic, rural mountainous venues only a few minutes away, yet La Cabane has a charm that separates it from other prestigious beach clubs in Marbella. Being a wedding photographer in Spain you have access to this and a wealth of other prestigious venues.

Both Valentina and Simon were lighthearted and kind in their every interaction and have a North American directness that is an endearing mix; I’ve spent a lot of my life in North America so they felt somewhat reminiscent of old friends. Their friends and guests were also friendly, welcoming and highly sociable. After they had finished ‘joining tables’ at dinner, they partied late into the night enjoying the beautiful food and entertainment provided by Los Monteros at La Cabane.

The Wedding of Rachel and Luke at The Four Seasons, George V, Paris & The American Cathedral, Paris

Rachel and Luke have a love affair with Paris, not that I blame them for loving one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Rachel like many Americans has loved the city from a young age; it’s a passion that her and Luke have long shared, it is an enchanting city. Having personally spent months of my life there, I cannot say enough about the city, every trip (and every wedding) reminds me why I love it.

We met in London to discuss their wedding day, I knew that they were planning to marry in Paris, but knew little else at that point; it was probably very useful that I had visited the beautiful American Cathedral before and knew Ave. George V just off the Champs Elysees well, I will however acknowledge that I didn’t realise just how beautiful the Four Seasons in Paris is; the penthouse suite was otherworldly and as you can see, it had the most incredible view of the city. To photograph a wedding in Paris is always a fantastic experience, but to be the wedding photographer in the penthouse of George V in Paris is quite something.

The service at The American Cathedral, and the reception at The Four Seasons, Georve V as well the entire day was magical; just as any wedding in Paris should be.
