Oh, lovely Mallorca and the equally lovely Danielle & Kevin!
Rustic, casual and romantic were the order of the day. And it was certainly all of those and much, much more. (Pretty epic). This was the start of two weddings in one week in Mallorca (and a portrait shoot) and it was one that I was very much looking forward to.
I have documented weddings in Mallorca on several occasions and they all rank very high in favourites! And now another one to add to the list – must be something in the air, the light, or just the general feel? But I do always love shooting on this island.
“The Band”… always good to travel to the venue with the band! Nick and the boys arrived in Palma around the same time as me, on the morning of the wedding, and we were swiftly transported in our X-Factor style black Merc to the jaw-dropping venue of Son Pont (the website doesn’t really do it justice) nestled in a valley in the middle of nowhere. It has real charm.
I had only meet Danielle and Kevin via Skype before and you could instantly tell they were a very laid back and let’s be honest, an extremely good looking and lovely couple.
The villa was a flurry of bridesmaids, children and of course Mum, all bustling around as we arrived. Danielle did her own makeup and looked fabulous.
From there we arrived at the ceremony, held in the castle that is now part of the building of Son Pont. Led by the lovely Glynis German, with stunning views of the Tramuntana Mountains in the background, the ceremony was nothing short of beautiful.
Down by the pool and under the wishing tree, there were cocktails made outside and then a sumptous dinner in the courtyard, with some emotional and at times very humorous speeches.
After dancing to Nick & his fabulous Band, it was time to keep the party going inside. That was more than achieved with glow sticks and a Mallorcan party vibe and a couple more cocktails…..!
Amazing wedding and wonderful people, on a beautiful island.
