I know when it comes to getting married myself, that one of the biggest decisions I am going to have to make is to either go for it with a big party and dress or keep it beautifully small with a very intimate elopement. It’s weddings like today’s that make me lean towards the latter because well, there is just something so special about keeping things to the absolute bare minimum and focusing completely on the most important part, exchanging vows. John and Satu’s wedding in Marbella was just this. A celebration of love, a way of life, witnessed only by their daughter Agnes and their beloved dog. The Finnish couple travelled to Spain for their wedding on the Spanish hillside and I think you’ll agree.. it’s pretty special.

John and Satu spent the morning of their wedding getting ready together with Satu doing her own hair and make up. For Satu, “The day felt relaxed and almost spontaneous” and she even rode her own bicycle to their ceremony.

Being both a nature and animal loving family, they chose to have their wedding in April when the hills start to come to life with fresh growth and greenery and the weather is warm enough to give off a soft light.

There is a lot to be said for a wedding so private and intimate and one of the beauties of having a destination wedding is that this can be achieved so easily. All you need to is a photographer as talented as David Luque to capture it. A really special thanks to John and Satu for sharing this with us. It’s left us dreaming for the day…
