Destination wedding in Pamplona Spain, Iruña, Navarra with Raquel and Javier. I had such an amazing time at this beautiful Spanish destination wedding this summer. The wedding was designed by the very talented wedding planner and designer La demi Mandarine!
The wedding was full of so much love and happiness and sunshine. My favourite elements of the wedding were the ceiling of peach and white roses, a room draped with layer upon layer of vintage lace, the beautiful natural evening light shining through the mountain forest onto the smiling faces of the wedding guests before the ceremony, the exquisite sushi and cocktail bar, the green candy table (I love everything green), the 100 white balloons being released into the sky at midnight, the swimming pool with floating floral reefs, the hilarious stand up comedian, the funky photo booth, a makeup artist in the evening for the ladies, and not to forget the dancing until 8am! The wedding was designed/styled by the bride herself and the transformation from start to finish was absolutely amazing, such a talented lady! So this unbelievably is 100% DIY wedding!
It was quite unusual in the fact that it was 100% reportage style wedding photo shoot, this means absolutely no planning of shots before hand, no ‘required’ shot list, no bride and groom posed portrait photos, just 100% natural reportage style photos truly capturing the essence and ambience of the day with no interference! My style is always natural reportage but I do mix in a few informal portraits (usually upon grandma’s request!). The reason this wedding was different? The groom didn’t want a photographer, the only way he would allow it was on the condition there were no posed photos… and the groom was very happy so I am very pleased!!
