Barcelona wedding photography – Attieha & Ashraf

March 17th, 2014 Rares Pulbere

Barcelona, a capital that inspires! That’s the motto of this great city and it can not be more true. Attieha & Ashraf were also inspired by the beautiful places that Barcelona has to offer and decided to make this the location of their international wedding. With an unbelievable mix of cultures and traditions, their wedding was full of intimate moments and genuine emotions. Even though the day started with rain pouring down and with a weather that is not habitual for Barcelona, in the afternoon, just in time for the ceremony the shine broke through and warmed our hearts and souls. :)

Hotel Miramar was the place to get everyone ready and organized, offering at the same time one of the best views over the city, the sea and the port. For the ceremony and reception they chose a really special venue, the Bell Reco mansion situated just outside of Barcelona.

Throughout the day I was delighted to discover different traditions from all around the world – from the Hawaiian tradition of the unity sand ceremony, to the Arabic henna custom and to traditional dances from Rwanda, this wedding was such a beautiful mix of cultures, religions and traditions. I wish I will be able to document more cultural weddings like this one. It is such an honor.

Well enough talking, enjoy some of the photos.

Monasterio de Piedra wedding photography – Raluca & Ionut

March 7th, 2014 Rares Pulbere

WOW! What an exquisite couple and what a jaw dropping location! Raluca & Ionut rocked that day and got the attention of every single person that passed by.

I had no idea of this place lost somewhere in the “desert”, in the middle of Spain. This beautiful oasis was the location for a XII century monastery and the setting of our photo shoot. Monasterio de Piedra is certainly a place that will surprise you in every way possible: natural surroundings, great history and delicious wine! Can’t wait to get back there to get stocked up on “El abuelo Manuel”, one the best wines I ever tasted.

Well I will let you get a feeling of Monasterio de Piedra with a few photos. Enjoy!

February 26th, 2014 Rares Pulbere

What an intense and beautiful day! This was an amazing wedding to attend to! Tsubasa & Alex organized together with the team of wedding planners from Crystal Events this great event. The bride and groom got ready in one of the hotels from Barcelona that i absolutely love, the “El palace” hotel. The religious ceremony was held in the small church of Sant Sever, which proved to be a perfect choice for this intimate wedding. Together with a lot of close friends and family the party started at Castell Jalpi, a beautiful venue just north of Barcelona, a great setting for a day full of great vibes, love and emotions.

It was great meeting you guys and spending this special day together with you. I hope i will see you soon in Hong Kong! :)

The wedding coincided with on the biggest parties in Barcelona, called “La merce”, so the streets were just full of people celebrating the Spanish way, with tons of bands, music  and petards!
While we were trying to head to the venue we stumbled upon this drums band and what an amazing energy they brought with them!

Barcelona engagement session – Tsubasa & Alex

February 21st, 2014 Rares Pulbere

Tsubasa & Alex chose to organize their beautiful and extravagant wedding in the amazing city of Barcelona. The event was held in a exquisite castle, just north of Barcelona. In order to get them used with my style of shooting and with my camera we chose to do a short engagement session on the streets of Barcelona, in the magical “El Born” neighborhood. The small streets of Barcelona offer a lot of great settings for a photo session. It’s amazing how this city changes each and every single day and how beautiful places pop up out of nowhere.

As for the wedding photos, well you’ll just have to stayed tuned for the next blog post. Happy Friday everyone!
