A few weeks back we brought you Sam and Nick’s glorious Ibiza wedding at Elixir – a fantastic venue on the west of the island. Now we bring you the second part of their story – a stunning stroll around Dalt Vila aka Ibiza Old Town a couple of days after the wedding so they could really enjoy the city. We include coverage of pre wedding drinks and a post wedding shoot in our destination wedding pricing as standard, so your story isn’t just about one day. Enjoy this fantastic shoot in the most beautiful Balearic setting sun…
Ready for a whistle-stop tour of Ibiza? Hop on board for a peek at Sam and Nick’s destination wedding on the white island. Featuring the famous Café del Mar and a dreamy wedding ceremony overlooking Es Vedra, the island of love.
Today we’re throwing it back to 2016, to a fabulous autumn wedding in the Cotswolds, the marriage of Matt and Hayley. The wedding was a full weekend affair (we love wedding weekends, always such an incredible atmosphere) at the beautiful Cripps Barn in Bibury – a traditional stone barn in the Cotswolds.
As we watch the leaves of our bright red plum tree trickle down to the floor from our office window (how poetic, I know!) we’re reflecting on a pretty awesome summer. Of course, when you do a job like ours, we’re generally describing the year as awesome, but this summer seems to have really swept us off our feet. After a fantastic spring which saw us return to some of our favourite venues such as South Farm and the Granary Estates, we also shot/saw two of our closest friends get married under the beautiful Scottish sunshine. This year we introduced wedding slideshows, so we’ve mixed in some images and slideshows here.
Wedding Party Photos: Why you should hire a professional photographer for your destination wedding party back home
In the saturated market of the wedding industry, with so many options of what type of wedding to go for, it is not surprising many couples are opting to have a destination wedding abroad. Many resorts in such hotspots such as Cyprus, Greece, Turkey and Las Vegas are set up to provide flawless wedding experiences against stunning landscapes and romantic backdrops. Couples are also recognising the savings that can be made by having an intimate family gathering abroad. Tell your best mates early enough and they could combine it with their annual holiday. Whatever you do decide on, one thing that is very common now is to have a wedding party back home to invite all your friends and family who couldn’t make it.
As well as a great opportunity to wear your wedding dress again, the wedding party is also the only chance many of your friends and extended family will have to experience the wedding, so don’t be afraid to go all out on those essentials such as a good DJ and a great cake – don’t be afraid to treat the party as you would a wedding reception here! By starting the evening off with cake cutting and a first dance, your guests will just feel like they have turned up as evening guests at your wedding and won’t have missed out too much.
It’s for these reasons above that you should definitely add a professional wedding photographer to the list of essentials for the night. Even if you are just hiring out the village hall, you can leave the memories of the night to us whilst you and your guests party the night away to celebrate the wedding, ensuring you have a great set of wedding party photos to look back on. You will also get special images of the first dance which you usually wouldn’t get abroad, many destination wedding venues offer a photography package which only includes the ceremony and then fifteen minutes worth of photographs of the two of you following the ceremony. For exactly the same reason we offer all day wedding photography, you should consider having a professional wedding photographer present at your party because once it gets started these will be the images that keep you smiling and laughing for years, all your friends throwing shapes on the dance floor and having a great time celebrating your marriage!
