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.
They then took all of their guests for a night visit to the Alhambra.
The bridal party and the majority of the guests stayed at the Hotel Palacio de Santa Paula where the wedding reception was to be held. Melissa checked in to the very spacious honeymoon suite where she had lots of fun getting ready with her girlfriends.
Melissa looked stunning and didn’t stop smiling all day!
The wedding ceremony was held at the Sagrario church which is joined to the Cathedral. Music was provided by a string quartet and Soprano.
Once the bride arrived, the groom couldn’t stop smiling either!
And neither could the priest!
As the bride and groom left the church, Melissa had a surprise waiting for Kiernan.
Bagpipes from his Scottish heritage!
Who led the Wedding Party through the streets of Granada back to the Hotel Palacio Santa Paula for the Wedding Reception.
Back at the hotel a Jazz Trio set the mood while everyone enjoyed a few drinks and canapés before dinner.
And the bride and groom snuck off for a few moments together and some romantic photos.
The decoration and flowers were vintage chic with roses, lisianthus and peonies.
Along with a very cool photo booth.
Dinner was held in the old convent chapel that has now been converted into a dining room.
The wedding cake was decorated with sugared flowers to match the bouquet. This was cut by the bride and groom with a sword.
While the guests were eating the team from AWOL Granada filled the dance floor with balloons, attached to which were photos of all the guests with a message written on the back from the bride and groom.
A string quartet played the first dance.
And then the DJ stepped in. Everyone danced the night away with tambourines, maracas and silly glasses, moustaches and wigs.
Congratulations to Melissa & Kiernan !!
