Sophie & Joels Spanish destination wedding day took place in El Molini Del Conde in a wonderful private villa in Spain. The house is set in large secluded gardens, with private swimming pool, surrounded by hills and olive groves near the beautiful Lake Iznajar and is close by to the vibrant cities of southern Spain – Granada, Seville, Cordoba, Ronda and Malaga.
Like most couples I didnt know Sophie & Joel before I photographed their wedding day, but I had certainly heard of Joel on a professional level, as he’s a fantastic wedding photographer himself….no pressure there!! 🙂
I arrived at the villa a day or two before the wedding ceremony and watched from afar as the last minute preparations were underway, using the time to scout out some areas and of course a little relaxation by the pool too. The big day soon came around and an abundance of family and friends arrived creating an amazing buzz around the villa. The ceremony was a highly emotional charged part of the day with Joels vows to Sophie and daughter Mia nearly tipping me over the edge too, let me tell you I see and hear many beautiful moments photographing weddings but it’s the closet I’ve ever came to shedding a tear!
Joel forgot to mention there would be another 5/6 wedding photographers as guests…eeek!! But of course I kept my cool and I felt very honoured to be asked to capture their day whilst in the company of such great photographers.
Special guests DJ Joshua Murphy and Ellie Sax were also flown over to get the evening celebrations in full flow and Joel took to the decks himself for his own set. It was an action packed day, under the 32degree heat but I can honestly say I enjoyed being around Sophie and Joel so much. They are a couple who are so much in love, its written all over their faces and I wish them a lifetime of happiness together!
