Estrella del mar – Marbella
Christine and Paul´s Wedding day
Estrella del Mar in Marbella was the setting for the wedding of Christine and Paul. I was contacted just two weeks before their wedding day as they were looking for a photographer just to cover their ceremony and some portrait photographs of just the two of them. I don’t as a rule like to cover the ceremony only as my style is a reportage style so I like to tell full story of your wedding day, but as I have not photographed at the Estrella del Mar before and was keen to do so , soI was happy to except the short booking. I arrive early to cover the arrival of the groom and their guests and then as the guests seated I went to the entrance to wait for the arrival of Christine. She looked stunning and had the biggest smiles as she walked down the aisle esccorted by her brother to her groom Paul who also was full of big smiles. The ceremony was very moving, especially as it was lead my a close friend. Other close friends also took part in the ceremony including reading and singing making this an extra special personal ceremony. After, canapés and cocktails were enjoyed and everyone admired the great sea views. As we had plenty of time before dinner I headed up to the main hotel of the Vincci, Estrella del Mar with Christine and Paul for some portrait shots. They had seen the gardens there earlier in the week during their stay and really wanted to have their photographs taken here. I was happy to oblige as the gardens were lovely and made great backdrops for their photo´s.
Not wanting to spend to much time away from their quests we headed back down to the Beach Club where there was time for them to enjoy and drink or two and some quick family group photographs. The guests then made their way into the dinner area which looked fabulous as the sun was now getting lower making the light in the room look stunning. I could see that there was going to be a beautiful sunset so I stayed on a little longer waiting for just as the sunset was about to set to take Christine and Paul onto the beach for some more romantic style photographs. A lovely finish I think to their photographs.
