Sunshine or rain?
I think I’ll never forget Kirsty and Richard’s wedding. It was just really nice from the first contact with them. Kirsty’s joyfull and sunny heart is etched in my memory forever.
The organization was easygoing with these two. The same went for their wedding day: sunny-easy-flowing with a lot of love in the air. And even though the weather was not sunny on Mallorca that day, I think that it was actually my first proper bad weather wedding ever.
My philosophy for such unpredictability is always: Life has other plans and has something unique prepared for all of us. So I instantly prepare myself for what life is going to do with us. I always trust that it wants the best and I focus my energy and my curiosity with enthusiasm on what is coming and I always allow this “new” to inspire me.
A blessing for me
And so Kirsty and Richard were my bridal couple, which I do not just want to call a gift, but they were a blessing for all the team.
Because: The bad weather was hardly mentioned, only in moments in which the organization had to be rescheduled in terms of ceremony and dinner.
And not only that, Kirsty smiled all day long – how wonderful for me as a wedding photographer. Often brides are nervous and stressed even if the weather is nice. So I often have to wait longer for special moments to press the shutter button. But not with Kirsty. She enchanted us all. Because one of our biggest limitations as wedding photographers are sad brides. No photographer, not even the best photographer in the world can improve something photographically if this happens.
The Cap Rocat Staff
Furthermore, I was impressed with one of my favorite wedding locations, the Hotel Cap Rocat that even with such atypical weather for Mallorca is still so stunningly photogenic. As well, the entire service staff was incredibly professional and, despite the rain, they worked without stress and tension simply executing Plan B. A big thank you also to Ars-Festum, who actively supports the Cap-Rocat team in wedding planning and supervising the day.
Kirsty said in a social media post that she’s had the best day on her wedding day. And all who were there felt this as well.
Weather guarantee for Majorca
Here and there colleagues recommend me, not to blog on my website bad weather weddings from Mallorca. That would not “sell” because customers don´t want see that. They want blue sky and sun.
But, to be honest: The good weather guarantee in Majorca is indeed much higher in percentage terms than in northern climes, but there is never a 100% guarantee. And so I like to show that I am not scared of clouds and rain and always searching the individual beauty in everything and I have always found it so far.
My big thanks to you, Kirsty and Richard! You were wonderful. Just like your whole family and your friends. The party was awesome. The dance floor was continuously full as I have rarely experienced.
And one detail I have to confess: I’m in love with your little nephew Kirsty! What a sweet heart child. His smile is so disarming and you have the feeling of melting away.
Our memory of your big day is just wonderful. We wish you the best of this world.
