Hi! I am in love with Hotel Son Claret because it is not only a truly historic Mallorcan castle, dating back from 1450, but it is also a peaceful and relaxing retreat in the countryside. Its beautifully designed gardens, the silence, the luxurious interiors and the award-winning Zaranda restaurant will make you fall in love with it. So whenever I am asked to shoot a wedding there I know it is going to be fantastic!
I was approached by Katja Buhlan from Mallorca Hochzeiten, to photograph the stunning wedding of Francis & Kim, a young attractive Swiss couple. This wedding was classical and elegant, with around 200 guests, and was preceded by an equally amazing welcome dinner at Bodegas Santa Catarina in Andraitx (I will post this welcome dinner very soon). The ceremony was held at the church of Calvià, only 5 mins away. We also filmed the wedding with 2 videographers and a drone, see the beautiful videoclip here.
Francis & Kim were easy going and fun to work with. They had met at Uni and had been together for many years before taking the big step. This is ideal really, as you already love the good, the bad and the ugly about the other person! I especially enjoyed the party bit because Francis turned out to be quite a dancer! They had a projection with lovely images from childhood right before the first dance, and then a duo of saxophonist and singer that rocked the place! This wedding had beautiful decorations throughout the venue and church ceremony and there was so much prettiness to photograph! Thanks Francis + Kim for celebrating your love in Mallorca and for having me to capture it!
