1st Place Wedding Story: Reyes and Richard
Photographer: Pedro Alvarez
The wedding of Kings and Richard
The preparations were at Finca Yanes, the place where the celebration would later take place. With a small paragraph for the religious ceremony in the Sanctuary of the Virgen de las Nieves, place where the patron saint of the island of La Palma lives. A very beautiful ceremony, in which the children marked a predominant note and in which it was impossible not to pay attention to them. In turn, and for formal reasons because Richard was a policeman, they made the exit of sabers that attracts so much attention in these acts. That if, accompanied by the spontaneity of the children who could not wait to throw the rice.
Returning to the Finca to continue with the wedding celebration, there were many special moments. Among them I am left with the moment when Richard gives his baby a bottle while entertaining him with cartoons. The complicated thing about this wedding, without a doubt, was the lighting. Working with two or three flashes in almost all the scenes that the lack of light required ... something that I personally love and see naturally. That is why I place them strategically and activate them as I need them.

Wedding l'Orangerie de Clos Barenys
He had heard of the Orangerie by Clos Barenys, a place where I really wanted to have a wedding and finally arrived, I could not have better hosts, Xavi and Laia, an emotionally perfect couple, laughs, surprised faces, hugs, a lot of love, I appreciate each other and very esteemed and they love their friends and family.
Everyone changes with their friends, they look at the dress, they get excited, they get upset, they play with each other, and everyone has a great time, what a good way to start! Afterwards, everyone goes to the beach at Port Calafat, Mediterranean in its purest form, we couldn't spend it better, each speech surpassed the previous one, the faces of Xavi and Laia were to frame.
And then we go back to the Orangerie, they made us sweat, they with an impressive body rhythm did not stop dancing, hugging their loved ones and also crying.
