Destination Wedding Photographer | The rain in Spain

June 3, 2012

Does NOT stay mainly in the plains!

I could make this blog post a novel – I have so much to say about this amazing couple and my experience as their wedding photographer. I’ll keep it short, though, and let the photos do most of the talking.

Jurjen and Idah fell in love with the beautiful city of Medina-Sidonia and decided to travel from their native Holland to get married here. When I arrived – I could see why. This place was gorgeous and the people were incredibly welcoming.¬† We stayed at Casa Reza, where we were treated like royalty. The accommodations were beautiful and we had an amazing view. I’d highly recommend it!

Jurjen and Idah were  told that it rained about 10 days out of the year and the rest of the time it was bright and sunny. We assumed that we were going to get a bright and sunny wedding day. We woke up to torrential rain Рand the forecast promised that it would last for the day.

As it turned out, the rain turned to sprinkles just before the ceremony and stayed away for the rest of the night! In the end I was thrilled with the rain as it created this amazing mist which made for incredible photo opportunities!

Enough about the weather…onto their day!

I literally squealed when I saw the church they were getting married in.

I love the anticipation just before the bride enters. Idah looked gorgeous.


There were SO many places for us to shoot! The 3 of us had a great time racing around during the cocktail hour getting some special photos of just the two of them.

Idah and Jurjen paid a lot of attention to the details for their day. The reception was held at La Vista de Medina and the decor and atmosphere was perfect! Their energetic entrance into the room (dancing!) was just a taste of the dancing to come.

This was not posed, I snuck up on them while they were having a moment together. Gotta love clients who choose to have sweet moments in sweet light!

They had one of the BEST first dances I’ve ever seen! They choreographed an energetic dance to compilation of songs. It was incredible! I wanted to stop photographing and just watch. They had some seriously fierce moves!

The party continued! The floor was packed all night.

I went outside to scope out some places to do some night shots and found the kids playing in the square. Isn’t the mist gorgeous!? I had to interrupt Idah and Jurjen (who were on the dance floor ALL night) to take them outside for a few photos.

And one of the final captures of the night is one of my favourite photos.

Thank you, Jurjen and Idah for hiring me to photograph your wedding. It was wonderful to get to know you and your family. You are all incredibly special and I feel so blessed to have been able to spend so much time with you. I’ll be in touch very soon with your gallery!

Dear Jennifer,

Sooooo Beautiful………..
And what a nice story about our wedding in Spain..!!!

Thank you so much for all the wonderful pictures and the great time we had with you and your family in Holland and in Spain.We are so speechless of your work and also thankfull for the great job you did for us in `s -Hertogenbosch and in Medina – Sidonia.

You really are an amazing photographer with eyes for details,lights and poses.From the very first moment we saw your work on your website a year ago we knew immediately : ” “This is who we want to shoot photos for our wedding”. We didn`t even look for other photographers in Holland.

We are so blessed having you during all the days.And we are also happy for you that you may have this opportunity to shoot in Andalucia.
Working together with you was amazing….!!!!!!!
Our wedding was like a ” Hollywood/Disney Fairytale wedding ” ..hahahaha….Especially your most favourite photo in the mist in front of the church at 2 am makes it so magical.

Thank you ,thank you…… for your great job capturing our special day to make it unforgettable.We will always look back to those beautiful moments.

Keep on doing this cause YOU ARE SIMPLY THE BEST….!!!

Lots of love Jurjen and Idah
