Getting married on Costa del Sol – Norwegian wedding – June & Trond

March 25, 2019

Getting married on Costa del Sol, Spain, maybe one of the best decisions, especially when traveling from Norway. But what if the weather forecast shows rain and some more rain?

This was exactly the case for June & Trond’s wedding. It was my last wedding of the season and we’d had some serious rain in 2018! I was ready and I was prepared. Packed all my rain covers, a couple of transparent umbrellas, tons of garbage bags for the equipment, pretty much all my lights and stands and a change of clothes. Because, you know, as a wedding photographer on Costa del Sol, I like to be ready.

Comes the day, I check the weather again – nothing new, lots of rain. Got to the Norwegian Seamen’s Church in Calahonda, greeted the groom and guests- so far no rain. Rushed through the family formals, because, you know, the sky was dark, but still no rain. At which point I relaxed entirely as I knew I could have trusted my good karma.

We still tried to get a couple of portraits whenever we saw a glimpse of the sun – and as we all know, church parking lots are perfect for a quick wedding portrait session – but we were in the safe now.

I could finally stop watching the sky and focus on telling the story of June and Trond’s wedding day.
