Melissa & Kiernan flew in to Granada, Spain from America with their 70 guests from all over the world. This was a truly international wedding. Melissa’s father is German, her mother is Cuban, Kiernan’s family were of Scottish origin and they now live in the states. You can just imagine the fun we had bringing in different aspects to the wedding from all these different cultures!

To start the weekend off the happy couple hosted a cocktail party at the Parador Hotel in the grounds of the Alhambra with a large selection of local tapas and canapés, during which they were serenaded by a Spanish Guitarist.
