Christine & Alexander’s Barcelona Wedding
I was so excited to be asked to carry out wedding photography for Christine & Alexander in the beautiful city of Barcelona. We had planned to include some of the great iconic landmarks but the weather conspired against us and we had to settle for photographs at the lovely Sjømannskirken (Norwegian church in Barcelona) and at their hotels. Christine was in the quirky and modern Hotel Pulitzer and Alexander next door in the equally impressive sister hotel the Hotel Regina. Even in July in the Mediterranean it is impossible to guarantee blue sky and sunshine and we had grey skies and drizzle. However, this did not detract from a beautiful and very emotional family wedding. The couple’s young sons were page boys and the bridesmaid a very dear best friend from school days. Christine’s mum was not able to attend due to unavoidable work commitments but sent a very moving tribute to the lovely couple via video. Christine’s natural beauty was enhanced by a great team from We Make Up Your Day who are Scandinavian specialists in hair and make up based in Barcelona. The Hotel Pulitzer provided a wonderful wedding dinner during which almost every one of the wedding party made a speech and Christine & Alexander continued the Norwegian tradition of standing on the chair to kiss and kissing under the table. All in all a wonderful day to remember in a great Spanish location.
