As a wedding photographer in Malaga, I love working in weddings in Malaga, my hometown, specially if that means discovering hidden gems like the one I want to show you today.
This year I had the opportunity to work as a wedding photographer at this rural wedding in La Axarquia, a very famous rural area in Malaga surrounded by olive trees and great views of the mountains.
This is the place Therese and Jonas chose to celebrate their mediterranean wedding in Spain. For their big day they picked this beautiful place called Los Castillejos Retreat, a very special venue as you can see in my wedding pictures. Los Castillejos Retreat is like a small rural village with its own houses, a communitary pool and common areas where the wedding guests had the chance to enjoy this original and romantic wedding in Malaga.
Located in the middle of the mountains and by the beautiful reservoir of La Viñuela, getting married in this wedding venue in Malaga is like traveling in time; tranquility and the Mediterranean romanticism invade everything. And that is why this Swedish couple decided to celebrate their wedding here in Malaga, attracted by the magic of the sun of Andalusia. Here the happy couple was able to celebrate their dream wedding: an intimate, rustic and Mediterranean wedding in Malaga.
The wedding preparations began very early in the morning. The bride got dressed with her bridesmaids in one of the houses of the village and the groom did the same with his friends. When they were ready we did a first look, that magical moment in which the bride and groom see each other for the first time minutes before the ceremony. Normally this happens in a very special place they carefully choose.
In this case we did it in the most beautiful street of the village. For this special moment groom and bride chose to be accompanied by the bridesmaids and the best men as witnesses.
For her wedding, Therese wore a beautiful dress from Grace Loves Laces with lace and a bridal wreath of flowers in pink and white, that gave her a very nice boho chic look. The groom chose a cream coloured suit and a white shirt without a tie, only with suspenders and a bouquet on the lapel to match the bride’s.
For the wedding dinner of this rustic Mediterranean wedding in Malaga a beautiful display was set in the middle of the street. Yes, outside, in the main street of the village, as if we were in one of those ads or inside one of those picturesques images that we like so much of the Italian Tuscany. The main street of this magical place, Los Castillejos Retreat, became the scenario of this happy couple’s wedding dinner.
Wooden tables, decorated with Mediterranean elements such as flowers, olives and lemons gave the final touch to this Mediterranean rustic wedding as you can see in the photos. The dinner was a very funny one as it was filled with games, surprises and speeches by the wedding guests.
To finish with the newly wed wedding pictures we made some photographs of the couple at sunset and also some aerial photographs of the wedding venue, the village. In them you can best appreciate the natural setting in which is located Castillejos Retreat.
I hope you enjoyed this original wedding in Malaga. If you are looking for a wedding photographer in Malaga and especially if you are interested in aerial wedding photography, do not hesitate to contact me.
