These two wanted to enjoy the day and did not care if their planned fit a conventional wedding.
– Do you want some couple portraits after the ceremony?
– The truth is that we think that posing is a little boring, so it will be enough if you take some informal pictures of us during our walk back to the hotel to take a rest before the party.
– Where do you want to do the group shots?
– Don’t worry about that, there aren’t a lot of guests, so you’ll have the chance to photograph all of them throughout the day.
– What about the dance?
– There won’t be any dance at the restaurant. We’ll have a mariachi during the cocktail, but after dinner we’ll go party to the old town.
The perfect clients
These were some of the questions I asked Rosie and Daniel in our interview some days before their destination wedding at Santa Maria Church. I can’t deny that I thought that this English couple fit perfectly in my kind of clients.
They clearly knew what they wanted and they didn’t mind whether their plan suited an expected wedding or not. We, as documentary wedding photographers, love adapting to the circumstances, so we found here a perfect chance to have fun taking pictures.
After swimming at the beach, Daniel had some beers with his mates before starting to get ready. In the meantime, Rosie was in her room at the Hotel de Londres with her best friends, her mother and her four little bridesmaids. We always say that the interesting thing regarding these getting ready moments is not the technical part of the making up or the hairdressing, but the opportunity to take photographs of the ambient and the people around the bride instead. This was a perfect example, because the laughs and the good mood among everyone who was there let us live many really funny moments.
The ceremony at the Santa María church was brief and simple, but the newlyweds enjoyed it, mainly Rosie, who couldn’t avoid laughing out loud many times. Rosie threw the bouquet and then the couple and their guests had an informal lunch at the Atari bar.
After eating, although it’s not an English tradition, all of them retired to have a quick nap before dinner at the NiNeu restaurant, where a mariachi group played their traditional songs.
And the cherry on the cake was not a cherry, it was a “romantic” skull with red roses in its sockets and good wishes for the couple.
And we’ll do the same: Rosie, Daniel, we hope that you’ll have a long life full of laughter and good humour. Thank you very much for giving us the chance to witness your celebration.
Be very happy!
