Photographer MIREIA CORDOMI explains the story behind this beautiful shoot of a elopement in Spain,
“Two people look into each others eyes and feel their hearts beat with the same rhythm. Nothing else matters. Everything else is secondary. Is it so beautiful, it is impossible to do without it. Bearing that in mind, for this session we were inspired by an organic and natural love, which is perfectly reflected in the beautiful and wild floral arrangements present throughout the session: at the ceremony, in the table, the cake, and of course in the bridal bouquet.
An old natural stone wall became the perfect setting for the ceremony. An impressive wreath of greenery and florals framed the scene, which was perfectly topped by a matching floral arrangement. And the young couple – full of love, vitality and joy. A couple who dream of a relaxed and casual wedding. A wedding with only two of them, but celebrating the most organic and natural side of love.” Elopement in Spain A baroque, organic and natural love
Love is two things. Two people who look each other in the eye and feel their hearts beat at the same time. Everything else remains. Everything else is accessory, but at the same time it is so beautiful, that it is impossible to do without it.
That is why for this session we have been inspired by a baroque, organic and natural love, which is perfectly reflected in the beautiful and exuberant floral arrangements presented throughout the session: at the ceremony, at the table, at night, and of course in the bridal bouquet.
Some arrangements that show us the wild side of flowers, but also the most passionate and romantic, and that transport us to a natural baroque that masterfully combines pink tones, creams, greens and blacks.
For the banquet we thought of a table that would naturally bring together the three concepts. The organic touch of the wood of the table, of the cotton of the chimney, of the glass of the tableware and of the silver of the complements and the cutlery.
The floral arrangements provide the natural touch, and the whole. The silver, the candles and the exuberant flower arrangements get the final baroque touch.
An ancient natural stone stone in the perfect setting for the ceremony. An impressive garland of greens and flowers framed the scene, which was perfectly topped by a floral game arranged in a stone cup.
And the protagonists, a young couple, full of love, vitality and joy. A couple who dreams of a relaxed and carefree wedding. A wedding only for the two of them, but without renouncing the more baroque, organic and natural side of their love.
I do lots of elopements in Malaga and elopements in Marbella and Elopements in Tarifa. I do elopements in Gibraltar as well.

I´ve always wanted to do a shabby chic wedding inspiration shoot, and last month I had the pleasure of capturing some very special moments between our beautiful four-legged models and the stunning bride in the depths of the Andalucia countryside. What made it even more special was that every image was captured on film, and not digital cameras.
The inspiration was nature itself, keeping the cake and the props very simple with black and white accents and of course plenty of green. The story behind the images was of a girl on her wedding day, going for a walk before the ceremony, and being calmed by the nature around her. The elegance of the dress beside the nobility of the horse was so wondrous to capture, as was the very cute bunny.
As a wedding photographer in Marbella I am very lucky to be surrounded by beauty and wonderful landscapes on a daily basis, but getting to work with such a happy model and gorgeous animals too was a great pleasure. I hope you agree that the use of film for these images really adds to the romance of the mood, which is why more and more brides are opting for film photography to be used at their weddings alongside digital. There´s certainly nothing shabby about this shabby chic wedding shoot!
