Melissa & Michael

Five star wedding by the sea in one of the best hotel's in Malta.

Wedding Venue: - The Hilton, Vjal Portomaso, St Julian's, Malta

Both Melissa & Michael are one of the most outgoing and friendly couples I've ever met. It became immediately apparent during at our pre-wedding meeting at the Hilton that this was going to be a fun filled wedding and if the quests were anything like Mel and Mick I couldn't wait to capture it.

I'd photographed at the Hilton many times while couples were 'getting ready' for their wedding at other venues but this was to be my first time photographing the whole a wedding at the Hilton. Hotels are great as wedding venues having everything under one roof, but do have their challenges. One of my main concerns at hotels is how the hotel was going to separate the wedding from the hotel guests. The Hilton did a fantastic job with both the ceremony overlooking the blue Mediterranean sea and the wedding reception in the fairy light lit Olive Grove.

I have to say that both Veronica and I are so, so lucky to be doing this job that we love as we get to meet amazing people like Mel and Mick. Their beautifully wild friends & family were so much fun, warm and welcoming we really felt like one of the guests especially in the following days as we visited the Hilton for meetings and met up with them again.

Fortunately for us, one of Mel & Mick's friends has booked us to capture their wedding in 2017. Very much looking forward to Julie and Joe's wedding in July.
