Jake & Alexa at Hacienda de San Rafael

Spain

Hacienda de san Rafael

 

As a destination wedding photographer I am asked to photograph many things, but to turn up at a wedding venue to find every one in the pool was great fun. Alexa and Jake having got all their wedding guests all the way to Spain wanted photographs of more than just their wedding so had asked me to come early and take some non wedding pictures.

The Hacienda de san Rafael has no less than 3 pools in its stunning grounds surrounded by sunflower fields. There are also numerous secluded areas where They chose to hold the different parts of their wedding day, reaving different aspects of the Hacienda to their guests through the day. They stared with their wedding ceremony in an adjacent Olive grove. Where the groom sister presided over proceedings marrying her brother to his beautiful bride. A real beautiful thing to do. Nots tied The very happy couple lead their guests through the gardens to drinks by the pool. Diner under the stars followed a short photoshoot in the sunflower fields at sunset. The evening meandered into the early hours in the gazebo next to pool no2 Where the party really happened.

I love shooting at the Hacienda de San Rafael, The rustic charm of the beautiful restored hacienda is picture perfect. The light also in southern Andalusia is very special and being out in the county side you have beautiful light right up till sunset. Where the fairy lights in the trees take over.
