Being a Granada wedding photographer has given me the chance to tell, through my camera, the Mercedes and Pedro wedding, that was an authentic Andalusian wedding.
After a beautiful love story between Spain and China, Mercedes and Pedro decided to get married in a beautiful Finca in Andujar, the Yeguada de Urquijo, surrounded by their families and friends from Andalusia and Madrid, and perfectly organized by Las Bodas de Araventum.
Mercedes wore an elegant and minimal dress designed by Rosa Clará, and she decided to celebrate her Andalusian roots with a hairstyle that remembered the flamenco dancers, enriched by a beautiful headpiece by Cherubina. For both the headpiece and the bouquet, Mercedes wanted to pay tribute to olives tree, typical from her town and object of her business. To end the elegant outfit, she wore a green (olive, of course) shoes by the Spanish company Salo.
Pedro wore a blue and incredibly elegant suit by BCorner and he was very touched from the first moment I met him and we started to shoot his getting ready moment. He was surrounded by her brothers and nephews before starting to heading the church that was the beautiful Parroquia Santa María.
The moment they have met at the church was very touching, and all their families were too. After the ceremony, all the guests wanted to congratulate the brides in front of the church and then go to the Yeguada de Urquijo where they started with the welcome cocktail. There was fanny and typical spanish music that has created a very relaxed and happy atmosphere and the both brides and people don’t hesitate to dance and sing.
The wedding reception was simple and fresh, without renouncing to a touch of trend: Vichy tablecloths and green and white for the flower decor.
All the day has passed alternating food, toasts, dances and songs. It was fanny and I enjoyed very much documenting this day as Mercedes and Pedro asked me to do. They wanted me to capture all spontaneous moment and being part of the day. I felt like a guest more and I couldn’t be more grateful with them to have chosen me as Granada wedding photographer.
