Spanish-born Vero and Agus had been living in London for five years before their wedding so they wanted to bring a bit of ‘Britishness’ into their wedding back home. They chose their venue, Jardín Müller in Granada, because it reminded them of the gardens in the UK.
“Our wedding theme was shabby chic”, said the bride, “and I got a lot of ideas from wedding blogs. I wanted the wedding to be a celebration with family and friends.”
“On the day, everything was perfect. Time flew from the morning to the night. There were so many unique moments: the time I spent with my sister in the hotel, the arrival to the gardens, that moment when Agus saw me, our proud and happy parents, the excitement, the happiness, the tears… It was a magical day.”
Zuria and Josu’s rented an old farm house in Northern Spain for their September wedding. They absolutely did not want a traditional day. They served street food, had lots of music and fun things for their guests to do.
“We planned a wedding without no protocol”, said the bride. “We just wanted a party with our loved ones. We looked at lots of weddings online to get ideas but we only picked things we thought would fit our personalities. We really tried to give everything our personal touch and we made the jam jars for flowers, the signs, the stationery and the favours. We brought lots of things from our home for extra decorations too. We wanted our guests to say that we wedding was ‘so us’.”
The vibe of the wedding was very different to most traditional Spanish weddings, it was very relaxed. “We didn’t want our wedding to feel like it was following a script”, she continued. “We thought that we would enjoy it more if it was just like us hanging around with friends, listening indie music, eating tapas and having fun. We didn’t want anything too formal.”
I’ve never wanted to shave my head, but if I looked as gorgeous as this bride I might just change my mind! Marta and Yuri were photographed in Tenerife by Sttilo Photography.
“This was shot in the Canary Islands”, the Spanish photographers told me. “We love to visit different, magical lands so we went to Tenerife, eager to explore its corners, endless roads, and the red and black rocks on the slopes of Mount Teide.”
