Publishing real weddings is my favourite. I love to read their stories, hear all about their celebration and swoon over their creative ideas! So, when I first found out this was a shoot, and not a real elopement, I was a tad disappointed. However it turns out that models Aida and Ismeal are a real couple, and the emotions you see in these INCREDIBLE pictures are 100% real… even if they didn’t officially get hitched. Good enough for me!
These photos, by the super talented French photographic duo Beatrice and Jeremie aka The Quirky, are out-of-this-world stunning. Of course we had to publish them!!
The shoot took part in Fort Bravo, a Western-styled theme park in the Almeria desert in the south of Spain. Built in the early 1970s is still retains that authentic, retro atmosphere. “We wanted to mix a rock style with a twist of Spanish spirit”, wrote Beatrice. “We wanted it to be alternative and modern but also warm. Fort Bravo is famous for its 70s western decor and is where a lot of movies were filmed. So, it was the perfect place to find an old school Spanish hacienda.”
Josh and James met via an online dating app, and although lived in different cities, they made it a priority to see each other every month and Skyped every night, so their relationship blossomed. They decided to elope while on a trip to Spain in September 2018.
With their shared love of the ocean, they began searching for the perfect location via Google, stumbling upon Esculls de Canyet on the Costa Brava and were immediately in love. “We were blown away,” said the couple. “We thought it wasn’t real at first and both knew immediately this was the place we wanted to start our lives together. We were inspired by the rustic and rugged coastline on the Costa Brava, and we wanted to keep a somewhat formal beach theme.”
Carlota and Pol are childhood sweethearts, though it took a few years for them to realise they were meant to be together. They reunited five years ago, and suddenly everything made sense. It was time for them to start a life together and to create a family. They were married in September just outside of Barcelona.
They were very clear what they wanted from their wedding day – a celebration of their love in a simple way. Dreaming of a place created by nature, their first stop was to find a venue. An old farm-house, full of history and surrounded by a forest, was the perfect setting for them. With warmth and authenticity as the cornerstones for the creation of their celebration, the feel of their day naturally unfolded.
