Photographing a Wedding in Tarifa is always fantastic and even more if it’s in El Canuelo, a charming place to get married in Bolonia, a place where I finally had the opportunity to take amazing wedding pictures.
Laetitia and Oliver were a very stylish French couple looking to celebrate a destination wedding al fresco in Andalusia in an unrivalled setting and they absolutely got it.
The ceremony took place in the Mediterranean Sanctuary Nuestra Señora de la Luz in Tarifa and the celebration was held in an enchanting venue that rises over the sand dunes of Bolonia.
After a beautiful ceremony, the newlyweds arrived to El Canuelo in a vintage car, where all the guests were waiting for them expectantly. Laetitia was wearing an astounding wedding dress that had been designed specially for her. The guests sense of style was equally attention grabbing! All of them were wearing beautiful and very colourful outfits. In fact, the friends of the groom all seemed to have agreed on theirs: they were all wearing matchings hats and ties and then each of them wore brightly colored pants. All of this resulted in very fun and distinctive wedding pictures, as you can see.
The decoration of the venue was simply incredible thanks to the wonderful job of the wedding planner FiestaSol, from Marbella, who executed all of the wedding tasks plus the decoration and the wonderful catering during the big day.
The tables at the wedding were decorated in a very chic and stylish way: every guest had his/her spot personalized with a polaroid picture of themselves, a sparkler to light and welcome the bride and a delicate sprig.
Of course they took advantage of the wedding being held outdoors, the trees were decorated with vintage decorative elements that gave the whole celebration a great retro and rural touch. The best part of the wedding decoration was without a doubt the lights that lighted up the outdoor Mediterranean garden where the banquet was held. When the sun went down, the magical look of the venue was impressive, it looked like a fairytale wedding.
The cocktail and dinner were very nice with live flamenco music, that of which all the guests enjoyed a lot thanks to the wonderful Mediterranean weather of Andalusia, but what would you expect from a destination Wedding in Tarifa?
Without a doubt this is an outstanding location to get married. I would love to go back to El Canuelo for a wedding photography session. As a wedding photographer in Málaga and Marbella, I have done many shoots in great places, but El Canuelo has been one of my favourites so far. It’s an amazing place to celebrate a wedding outdoors, with just the perfect weather conditions and lovely views. But you can judge for yourself .
