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.
