Consuelo is one of those people that you meet and would like to have them around you for the rest of your days. This lady is made of all things good and funny with lashings of love.
A whirlwind of events led up to the wedding day but all was good with Consuelo having her two daughters Olivia and Jackie close to hand to sooth away any nerves.
Jim and I had been chatting via emails and I could feel I was corresponding with a really nice person. Upon meeting James I found him to be quite a quiet person, very calm. Underneath that exterior I also found a wickedly good sense of humour. Never underestimate the quiet ones!
Consuelo´s dress looked amazing. Very sexy and so great to take a side step away from the white/cream wedding dress. Consuelo told me that she had looked for a long time and eventually found the dress online. No alterations needed as it fitted her perfectly from the start.

The ceremony was performed by Jim who is one of Jim´s closest friends. Olivia sang the song `Todos Vuelven´as her mother walked down the aisle. This song was a favourite of Consuelo´s mother who used to sing it to Consuelo encouraging her to join in. A very touching moment.

Ramiro at Fotografia Sitges - As a wedding photographer, you get to spend time with your clients and share intimate moments, interesting conversations about their lives and what brought them together. It was during Consuelo's make-up and hair preparations that I got to know a little about her and her family. Consuelo's mom was from Perú so that provided an explanation to the name. I was fascinated by her stories, a past mixed with joy and hard blows, a present of illusion and a future filled with hope and happiness together with James, her soon to be husband.Unknown to us then, these facts would be masterfully resumed later during dinner, in the most touching speech we have witnessed to date. The casual feel of the day didn't prepare us to what we were about to take in later. Our wedding planner friend Philippa and I could only look at each other with watery eyes and wide open mouths.
The D.J and dance floor had been set up outside for the evening party. The D.J knew exactly what to play and they loved him for it. There is a gentleman three lines up that is wearing an orange bow tie and he was on the dance floor for a very LONG time. He was brilliant and definitely had the moves.
I loved this wedding. The couple, their families and their friends. Happy vibes the whole day.
This was a very small intimate wedding. The guest number was 30 including a good giggling group of children. The day was really relaxed and I loved decorating the old wooden tables that are at this venue. Casa Felix
The day unfolded with a lovely calm. The children were in the pool and there was a very peaceful no stress feel coming from everyone.

Giggles and tears. Such a beautiful day. Thanks to Jo at Jo Kemp Photography for capturing those giggles and tears.
Mum with her daughters.
Everyone stayed in the Hotel MiM in Sitges.
The service was held in the church on the seafront. The guests were able to walk which I love as the photo opportunities are great.
Kiri and her Dad travelled in a car. Very close father and daughter.
And Kiri´s smile didn´t stop ... not once!
The reception was held at Torre De Veguer which is a working winery in the Sitges area.
When the dinner was over the guests took to the grass (literally). The photographer then took my favourite photos of the year. This wedding was one that was a privilege to do, both myself and assistant and the services wished that every wedding could be just like this one. Thank you Kiri & Gary we think you are amazing!
From Kiri - Thank you once again for every single thing, I think you are totally amazing!
With Love from a very happy

This is the story of Mario and Leah. My most hands on groom of the year. Mario had us smiling and enjoying the morning finishing all the creative details for his wedding to Leah.
Here is Leah´s story and their AMAZING photos by Rares Pulbere
Mario was born in Costa Rica and was fortunate enough to work and travel around the world for work and pleasure. I would describe him as strong willed and extremely passionate man, which is only exemplified by the Latin streak within him. Mario is caring, but most of all he maintains close ties with his family and has strong personal values which I truly admire. This is what ultimately attracted me to him.
Mario and I met whilst at work in Sydney. After a whirlwind 6 months, we fell madly in love and moved to the coast to start our new life. Fast forward one year, and here we are, on the other side of the word, beautiful Italy! I can safely say that the last years have been the best, even if we come from different cultures, with very different upbringings but in the end, we compromise and respect and support one another.
Being from different sides of the world, we decided to get married in Barcelona as it’s such a vibrant city with everything we love; delicious food, wine, with a beautiful city and coastline for all to enjoy. After researching online, we came across Almiral De La Font
I never dreamed that I would have a wedding planner, but I am so glad I did. Not being a local to the area, nor having any idea what my expectations should be, Philippa guided me through each step of the way. Our preference was always to support local businesses so this was ideal for us.
Philippa had creative ideas was able to decorate the venue and organise the flowers for the entire day. I was so impressed with her professional approach, and noted how I felt so calm throughout the day. Everyone commented on how beautiful everything was which was a testament to her work. I would like to thank Philippa from our entire families for providing us with the best day of our lives.
Back when spring was doing it´s best to show off my photographer friend and I decided to do a photoshoot. We wanted to show that an elopement wedding could be beautiful on a budget. To creative beautiful wedding that could be intimate and using a little imagination completely unique to the couple. Please click on a photo for the full post.

Summer is truly here and as I don´t have a wedding to busy myself with this coming weekend I thought I would share a few Spanish wedding inspiration photos. Enjoy!
Sarah the bride was totally chilled and relaxed. Daniel the groom organised everything. They drove from the UK to Spain over the Alps with everything needed to create a beautiful wedding day. With all their family and friends there to help the day went brilliantly. All the very best to Dan & Sarah with their new exciting life together in Malaysia.
I am busting to share the amazing offer on my blog. Wylie Brewery is offering to a group of minimum 30 the chance to hire FREE of charge the Wylie Bar for an evening. No free beer sadly.
Wylie´s is a brew pub in Sitges. Open to the public only on a Friday. The offer is the space for you and your guests for the evening (no event space charge).
The beer is brewed on site and if you wish for a guided tour you will be gathered up and whisked away to talk beer and beer equipment with much enthusiasm.
During your event (exception Fridays) you will have the bar completely to yourselves. No members of the public will be allowed in. A great opportunity to WOW guests and drink some award winning beer too!
Please contact Philippa Events or Wylie Brewery for more details.
M O R E I N F O - The Barcelona Beer Festival was held last week. There were over 300 beer varieties to try at this international festival. Wylie Brewery came away with two awards. Fantastic!
Barcelona - I took myself along to the Unusual Wedding Barcelona event last night and found this amazing service. The Unusual Wedding Barcelona is an annual event and this is their second year. I hope they have many many more.
I was super happy to bump into Pope & Poole. They are a photo booth truck business. They arrive to an event in their very cute VW van the interior of which is kitted out photo booth style. The images come in strips of 4 and the processing is speedy. They have props and a great neon sign that illuminates P H O T O S (great for your wedding photographer).
