Behind-the-Scenes—Morning Wedding Prep

As the sun rose on Saturday, June 3rd, 2023, the morning buzzed with excitement. Kerry’s bridal suite was a hive of activity, with hair and makeup artists working their magic. The florist arrived with beautiful bouquets, and photographer Rachel captured every moment of the bridal preparations.

Meanwhile, Dan and his groomsmen, Marc, Josh, Guy, Hemish, and Olli, gathered for their own pre-wedding moments. The morning passed in a whirlwind of anticipation.

A Sip of Elegance—Wedding Welcome Drinks

Guests arrived via the grand elegant driveway, bordered by towering evergreen trees. At the entrance, they were warmly welcomed with a selection of refreshing drinks – water, sangria, bottled beer, and fresh fruit. The ambient tunes of local flamenco guitarist, Nano, filled the air, enveloping the guests in an ambiance of Spanish charm that would set the tone for the day ahead.

Tying the Knot Wedding—Ceremony Moments

The wedding ceremony was a breathtaking affair, set against panoramic views of the Spanish countryside and the sparkling coastline. A beautifully adorned floral arch framed the couple as they exchanged heartfelt vows. White rose petals lined the aisle, creating an enchanting path for Kerry’s walk down to Dan.

Minister Gareth conducted the ceremony, where the couple exchanged heartfelt vows and sealed them with a kiss. The emotional ceremony then ended with guests showering the newlyweds with petals as Nano’s lively exit song signalled the conclusion of the formalities, inviting the newly married couple and their guests to head to the drinks reception and kick off the post-ceremony celebrations.

A variety of cold and hot canapés were served showcasing Spain’s culinary flavours and as guests mingled, Rachel from Balance Photography captured special family moments.

The Wedding Breakfast—Feasting in Style

As evening approached, guests gathered in the garden for dinner, where wine and beer freely flowed. There, Guy, the bride’s brother, offered a brief speech before the tapas courses were served, accompanied by the setting sun, which also provided a moment for the photographer Rachel to capture the couple’s magical moments during the sunset. The day gracefully transitioned into night and candlelight beneath the stars added to the evening charm which saw traditional Spanish paella served to all the guests.

Following the meal, heartfelt speeches were delivered by the father of the bride, the groom, and the best man. The delightful alfresco dining concluded with a fruit platter dessert, offering a sweet ending to the celebration.

Dancing the Night Away—Late-Night Snacks and Sips

The bar opened in the lower courtyard, offering seven and a half hours of fun and laughter, as guests gathered for the first dance to the tune of “All Night Long.” The traditional dance was followed by a live band, Monkey Tennis, who entertained with a 90-minute set before DJ Captain Flatcap took over for a four-hour music extravaganza.

Late-night snacks kept everyone energised until the early hours of the morning, when at 4 am, the bar finally closed, marking the end of a day filled with joy and celebration.
