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.
Castillo De MorairA WEDDING PORTRAITS
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!

We recently had the pleasure of photographing Priya and Saurav's pre-wedding engagement ceremony at their house in Cheadle before photographing some intimate portraits of the newly engaged couple at the newly opened Oddfellows on the Park at Bruntwood Park.
The newlywed couple exchanged their wedding rings in a family filled living room which played host to their ring exchanging ceremony. Family members of all ages looked on as Saurav went down on one knee to place the ring on Priya's finger.
Once the ceremony had come to an end the family gathered in the back garden for the cake cutting. The cake itself was delicious and was readily passed around for all to try! Straight afterwards we were then treated to traditional dancing which was utterly mesmerising and great fun!
Oddfellows wedding venue
After the family celebrations had taken place at Priya and Saurav's house, we headed over to the brand spanking new Oddfellows on the Park wedding venue for some portraits of the lovely couple. The venue has been newly renovated for weddings by the Oddfellows team who began over at Oddfellows Chester. What was once Bruntwood Hall and home to stuff merchant John Douglas and his wife in 1861, through to the present day being used as a wedding venue - this building's uses have been diverse and very interesting.
We really can not wait to come back for our first Oddfellows at the Park wedding!
