Wedding day in Santiago de Compostela
This is by far the funniest couple I have ever come across! Shima and Gus met each other in Florence where she studied and he was on holiday. It was love at first sight but after 4 months they thought it wasn’t working because of the distance… Years later they met again in Florence and while they were with friends and climbed the highest tower in winter Shima was asked to marry Gus and ofcourse she said yes!!!! She moved to Lugo to live with the love of her life and now ladies and gentlemen you’ll see their special day!!!
We started of at Hotel A Quinta de Auga **** to do the prep of both Shima and Gus. The bride got ready with her bridesmaids and she wore a beautiful wedding dress with a feathered bodice and a bird cage on her head accompanied by Prada shoes. The groom got suited and booted by himself.
This was followed by the wedding ceremony in the catholic church, Santa Maria Colegiata do Sar. After which we took some shots in the centre of Santiago, wow what an amazing city that is!! After that we went to the hotel to have an Iranian ceremony because Shima is Iranian. I never knew Iranian women are sooo beautiful and I completely understand why all the bachelor friends of Gus try to learn some Iranian pick up lines 😉
After the second wedding ceremony there was a reception where canapes and drinks were served. A gorgeous wedding meal was served in the salon which was decorated for the special occasion! The first dance was next, the newlyweds had a great dance off and the wedding party ended in the early morning.
The day after
Next day I met Miguel, a good friend of Gustavo, the best man, at one of the coffeeshops in town, he asked to join him as the happy couple would meet him soon, ofcourse I did and well they showed me the best restaurants in town! Didn’t go home till midnight. Thanks guys for your hospitality, I really enjoyed your perfect wedding day and the next !
All the best for the future and I will see you again In Lugo and Santiago de Compostela!
