Alicante Wedding Photography | Siân and Ryan


Alicante Wedding Photography

As international wedding photographers we are often asked whether we can travel and photograph weddings abroad; our answer simply being: 'if we have the availability and you don't mind flying us over, of course we can shoot your wedding!'.

Luck wasn't on our side to begin with as our flight was cancelled the day before the wedding! however, being the dedicated professionals we are we were able to switch flights and board the next Jet2 plane leaving Manchester to Alicante to make it in good time for Sian and Ryan's wedding the following day! Winner!

I met up with Siân and her bridesmaids in the morning at Salon Georgette on the main road of Moraira. The Love Hearts were out and the Champagne in full flow when I arrived with all bridesmaids having their make up and hair styled, you could tell we were in for a great (and very hot!) day ahead.

Our bride was then chauffeured from the villa to the ceremony in a gorgeous Morris Minor wedding car! A short drive from villa to our couples' gorgeous wedding venue at The Casa Marina Suites in Benissa and we were all ready for a very intimate ceremony with an absolutely stunning backdrop!

Our bride and groom exchanged vows looking over a gorgeous backdrop of the cliffs and the sea looked on by friends and family (and also their dog Nemo!) who had all travelled to be with them on their special day. The wedding itself was very intimate and emotional with certain traditions being carried out such as the lighting of the candle and the presenting of white roses to the newlyweds.

Once Siân and Ryan had exchanged vows and had their first kiss we took a quick trip to a small fort on Moraira's coastline: 'Castillo de Moraira' for some intimate portraits with a rather amazing view of the Costa Blanca coastline. It was then straight back to the wedding venue for confetti throwing and eating!

Destination Wedding Photography

We are often asked by couples who love our style whether we can join them to photograph their destination wedding. We love travelling, we travel all over and would love to photograph your wedding abroad.
