The stunning Michelle and Cian, all the way from Ireland, wanted to marry in the sun and so they came to Andalucia with friends and family for their big day.

Michelle and her four bridesmaid´s natural beauty was brought out by the lovely Sonia, who did their hair and make -up to perfection. Michelle chose an elegant dress which was complemented by a striking hair piece on her lose blonde hair. Her bridesmaids wore powder blue dresses and their hair was up in gorgeous, classic  up-do´s. Blue is a popular colour for bridesmaids in Spain, it brings lightness and freshness to the party and looks beautiful on most skin and hair tones.

Michelle and Cian chose to have their ceremony at the Catholic church in the White town of Frigiliana, Iglesia de San Antonio. If you want a typical Andalusian wedding, you cant have a better church and town than these. The church itself has a beautiful simple and elegant architecture, its traditional white washed walls reflecting the warm sun light and contrasting with the incredible blue skies of the area.  After the ceremony and a fab confetti moment it was time for drinks!  Following a cold beer or two,  we wondered through the streets of Frigiliana, finding some spectacular spanish patios and brightly coloured doors to have some photos done with the couple , wedding party and friends.

The Reception was at the wonderful Hotel Cortijo Bravo, where the couple had wanted to give a Mexican feel to their decor, in memory of a very much loved holiday they d had. The flowers at the tables were just smashing colours, pinks, oranges, fuchsias , reds all combined to give the eating area a happy and lively atmosphere.

Both Michelle and Cian had a lovely group of friends and family with them, the rest of the evening was a mix of emotional speeches, fun moments, tasty food, great wine and a Mexican inspired cake cutting.
