Well every year comes to an end and the last wedding of the very long season was in the lovely Nerja with Bernie & Seamus. Some people might think that the travel from Ireland to Spain is a bit of a drag ( particularly if your flying Ryan Air ) but Bernie & Seamus travelled all the way from Perth, Western Australia for their own wedding which I have to say was well worth the trip!

Nerja is a stunning spot at the best of times but the middle of October is the perfect time, gorgeous light, milder temperatures, all the perfect ingredients for a very cool wedding. Despite lots of emails and some skyping I  had not met Bernie until the “knock knock” on the bridal suite door. I am not sure if its the same for everyone but I reckon I can get a good idea on the general feel for the day in the first 10 minutes, so its always good when one of the first noises of the day is a Moet cork!

One of the great bonuses of marrying in Nerja is that the Hotel Balcon Europa is a short walking distance to he church and with the beautiful October sunshine Bernie had a pretty decent audience to watch enter the church. After a lovely service it back over to the hotel for ccktails and canapes for all the guests.

Sunset from the Balcon are breathtaking. It really is a great spot for the wedding dinner and speeches and of course some authentic flamenco dancing under the stars. And can you really beat the feeling of sand between your toes during you first dance?

Always a little sad blogging the last wedding of the year but a huge thanks to Bernie & Seamus for making it so memorable and really hope you enjoy a few of mine and Ruth’s  favourites.
