Amy and Steve | Casa Los Bates in Motril


Ruth Blamire-Brown


  • Arriving at Villa Carabeo in Nerja, there was love in the air. Today was the wedding of Amy and Steve, a lovely Irish couple who had decided on a traditional Spanish church ceremony.
  • I had a great time photographing the girls getting ready! Amy looked beautiful in her classic dress, and the bridesmaids certainly followed suit. The sound of bagpipes echoed through the villa as the musicians tuned their instruments – there was nothing Amy and Steve had not thought of.
  • The ceremony was held at Arroquia de El Salvador, Nerja, a very popular church for weddings. Set in the busy square in town, and with a grand interior, it was a lovely place for a ceremony.
  • After the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. and their 80 guests gathered outside the church. There were congratulations all round, confetti and time for a group shot before the wedding party set off for Casa de los Bates in Motril.
  • Casa de los Bates never fails to impress. A 19th century house set in lush gardens, the space is vast with an impressive staircase and a red carpet. It is the perfect wedding venue. Amy and Steve were having their dream day and all the guests were happy as they enjoyed their drinks and canapes before dinner. The setting looked amazing, outside at the front of the house. The table details were carefully placed, with gifts for the guests – the wedding planners had done an exceptional job. The couple made a grand entrance and with the sun setting during the speeches, the guests tucked in to their banquet.
  • The evening party was to be held in the marquee and with the legendary Double Cocktail booked for the night, there was a great party ahead. The Irish certainly know how to party! The dance floor was full and I left Amy and Steve’s wedding with a smile on my face. The party was in full swing and it had been a great day.
  • Thank you Amy and Steve for letting me be part of your day!
