Wedding blessing by the deep blue Mediterranean Sea.

This wedding caused a little bit of confusion at first as both Ana and Chris enquired about me photographing their wedding but it turned our that they were already married two years earlier in the USA. They wanted to re-create their wedding day for their family & friends back in Europe.
Initially I thought their where both Americans as I photograph many couples from the US wanting destination weddings in Europe and I don't get that many European couples contacting me from America.
Ana was from mainland Spain and Chris was from Ireland. They both met each other, fell in love and married in Florida in the United States in 2014. As soon as I found out that it was to be a Irish and Spanish fusion wedding blessing my initial perceptions about the wedding changed instantly. Spanish and Irish weddings can be so full of emotion, passion and energy, both on and off the dance floor. There's always a lot of colour as well as being a high volume event with talking, singing and laughter. Ana & Chris's wedding went beyond my all expectations.
Pre-wedding drinks for the wedding guests and the grooms part where at the Temple Bar.
The Ceremony was setup on the Dolmen's Amazonia Lower Deck right next to the blue Mediterranean sea and held during golden hour just before sunset.
Wedding reception was held at he Aqua Terrace Bar and the Atlantis Event Centre for the wedding seated meal.
The party progressed on after some surprise fireworks onto the Dolmen's Mynt Club where the partying really started to heat up.
