We cannot imagine how stressful these past few months have been for you and for those who have have had to postpone or cancel weddings, we will do all we can to inspire you as you countdown to your new big day!
We are so excited to be sharing content with you again and what better way to start than with this wonderful family wedding in the Spanish mountains.
Liis and Raiki were married at the Ronda Mountain Resort nestled between the beautiful mountains and nature in Spain. The couple had been visiting the country for many years with their family, so it only seemed right to get wed in their home away from home.
“We had considered three important things that we wanted at our wedding; a wedding ceremony in our own language, gorgeous images and a memorable party.”
“We got the contact of our planner from the villa. Almudena Fernandez Izguierdo, already had experience with weddings and helped with the band, catering and flowers. We brought along our own photographer, wedding MC and ceremony master, it was important to us to have the wedding conducted in Estonian as all our guests were from Estonia,” she explained.
“There were however a number of people that couldn’t attend. We missed our best friend who stayed home with her newborn and Raiki’s grandmother who was too sick to travel. There will always be someone who can’t attend your wedding if its abroad.”
“We didn’t have any fears about the day, except the thought of all our family being in one villa for a week and we hoped to not have any fights, but we needn’t be concerned everybody was in holiday mode.” Liss joked.
“Although we do have one regret. We forgot to tell our videographer that we were going to take images in the mountains, so he missed it. It was a very last-minute decision the day before the wedding and we simply forgot. On the other hand, he did get lots of video at the villa and everything that was going on there.”
“My advice for anyone planning their wedding is to remember if something isn’t going to plan, it’s no big deal. Hire people you trust and click with. A good connection with the vendors is crucial. If you feel he/ she is not your person, do not hire them, even if they have a lot of recommendations. And finally, if you are booking a wedding photographer from another country, just remember communication might be a little slower.”
