Irish wedding in Marbella, Spain {Jessica & Gerard}

January 17, 2018

My last wedding season ended with a bang. I’ll definitely be one to remember for its timeless understated elegance, a lovely bride and groom, as well a the biggest thunderstorm I’ve seen on a wedding day and guests, who would not stop dancing in the downpour.

When you start planning your destination wedding, you are probably thinking of all the great things coming with it, like beautiful venues, warmer climate, and eternal sunshine. At least that’s what comes to mind when you’re planning your wedding in Southern Spain.

However, if your wedding date is in October so late it becomes November, you better brace yourself as there may be surprises.


When it rains on your wedding day

We were all a bit concerned with the weather forecast for the day but then – nothing happened in the morning during the getting ready in Guadalpin Hotel in Puerto Banus; nothing happened before or after the lovely ceremony in Encarnacion church in Marbella; and, believe it or not, no sight of rain for the entire cocktail hour and reception, so everyone could enjoy a candlelit evening at the beautiful wedding venue, Finca la Palma.

And then, out of nowhere, it just poured like crazy! But if you think this would stop the Irish, you’d be very wrong! Jessica and Gerard took the most out of the 5 minutes without rain to do the beautiful first dance they’d rehearsed for so long. That is probably the best wedding attitude of all. Keep calm and carry on! Enjoy the fact your wedding will foreer remain unique 🙂
