Wedding photography might be quite a stressful job, but it sure has it perks! This year I was fortunate enough to land a wedding in Barcelona, Spain – Fair enough, we do work pretty hard when we’re shooting, but that’s fine when you look on the flip side…A week in one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
Greg & Mariana’s wedding actually took place an hour north of Barcelona, at Blanes on the Costa Brava – the venue, El Convent – what a superb location! The estate is situated on a little peninsula, with the 17th Century building perched high up on a natural cliff. The views from up there – absolutely breathtaking!
To organise a wedding abroad (as in the couple’s case) can be quite hair raising! Luckily, Clare Doane of Barcelona Wedding was at hand to do the running around for Mariana & Greg (living in New York & London respectively). Clare, a British national, has been living in Spain for 7 years and has built up a very successful wedding coordination business, servicing the destination wedding market – Talking about a dream job!!!
Just to put it out there…If you’re planning a wedding in Spain for next season…I’m almost sure I’ll be there at the same time again next year (Mediterranean summer that is)
