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 Andalucian Lakes Styled Shoot, Istan, April 2018

“Complacency is the forerunner of mediocrity. You can never work too hard on attitudes, effort and technique”  - Don Meyer

The Wedding of Christina & Manjinder, Cobham, March 2018

It was great to fly out to our first British Spring wedding in March for the Wedding of Christina and Manjinder at Great Fosters in Surrey.

Through the moments of the couple getting ready, to the best man Kip practicing his speech to friends and the fantastic drummers in the evening it was a beautiful, heartfelt and memorable day.

Much like the couple themselves, their day exudes memories of warmth, a close-knit family and understated elegance. It was truly a pleasure to be a part of your day and we wish you every happiness in the future.

Venue: Great Fosters, Cobham, Surrey.
