Monasterio de San Martin wedding

So its November and Im still only just getting round to posting some of 2013´s weddings. This is supposed to be my down time, but I have been a very busy bee showing future couples round the Costa del Sol and preparing 2014 weddings.
Looking back at photos of Emma and Gavin´s wedding, one word springs to mind – SOULMATES. Emma and Gavin had been together for many years before they tied the knot in Marbella Old Town. Not only were they in love, but it was clear to everyone around them, that they were best friends too.
Emma and Gavin’s wedding took place in La Encarnacion church in Marbella Old Town and then guests were taken on a little road trip to Monasterio de San Martin for their reception. This venue is one of my favourite venues and its absolutely stunning.
Id love to say there were no dramas at this wedding, but due to the garden area at the venue being swarmed with flying fruit flies we had to ditch our original plan of setting up the dinner area outside and move under a covered terrace. I remember thinking “Oh God, how am I going to tell the bride” but when I told her she was totally calm and wasn’t at all bothered. Honestly, I thought it was only the weather than could make a reception be moved under cover, but oh no, we also have to consider flying insects now! LOL
I have said this before, but I LOVE LOVE bold colour schemes at weddings. You can see from the photos below how the blue stands out :) Emma and Gavin’s table plan was a huge hit too – each guest had a Polaroid photo of themselves next to the table they were sat at.
This couple were a pleasure to work with and wish they all the happiness in the world.
Congratulations Emma and Gavin xx
