Megumi & Yuya’s Japanese Wedding in El Parador

Megumi and Yuya had a beautiful wedding in September.  It was a small intimate wedding, with close friends and family flying in from Japan.  Megumi was studying Spanish in Granada and so she invited her teachers and friends from the course.  They had both the blessing ceremony and the wedding reception at the Parador de Granada in the grounds of the Alhambra.

After the blessing ceremony, the Parador provided a cocktail with cava and delicious canapes in the covered interior patio. Here they had an instant camera, so the guests could take some pictures and leave nice messages for the lovely couple in a guest book.
