I've always loved shooting destination weddings, and this was no exception. The couple, Becky and Tom, are from London, and chose a 13th Century Estate, Son Termens, on the exotic Spanish Island of Mallorca for their wedding. Becky wanted it to feel like a lavish garden wedding, and Alago Events did just that. The intimate ceremony took place under a lush canopy of trees, and afterwards, the festivities continued with refreshments and tapas in the front courtyard. Being from North America where our dress is somewhat more conservative, I loved photographing the eclectic Londoners and their fashionable attire. It was a feast for my eyes (and lens!). As the sun set, guests were invited into the inner courtyard, where Alago Events had hung lights, birdcages and single blooms above the flower laden tables, creating a beautiful glow that lit up the old stone walls, warming the guest while they ate a traditional Spanish meal.
I think what I love most about destination weddings is that everyone is on a holiday, which creates an extra celebratory energy that permeates throughout the day. Everyone is just a wee bit more carefree, which as a photographer, lends itself to some great imagery.
It was an honor to share in this beautiful celebration at such a spectacular venue with such lovely people. On top of that, we got to experience the special island of Mallorca... I hope to return soon! Much love to you, Becky and Tom! May the rest of your days together be filled with as much joy as this spectacular day at Son Termens!
