Everyone knows that a wedding is made special by the bride and groom. But for a wedding to remain etched in our minds because of their relationship with their guests… this, my friends, is really great.
And, if you are going to realize something seeing these wedding photos at Monasterio del Espino Bodas is that Silvia and Jorge, had a great connection with each of the people who were present that day. His gestures and hugs with all of them were the kind of hugs that make you shudder just imagining them being given to you. And that’s how you realize that this couple is one of those who really kiss and hug, really hard and really sincere. You wish you could stay in his arms one more minute because every second that passes comforts you.
You might be thinking, do they realize all that on the day of the wedding? Yes, of course! I always say that wedding photographers have some intrinsic psychology that makes us glimpse all that on a day when emotions come to the surface and we have to be there anticipating everything that happens around us. For me, being a photographer is that, it is to have that “plus”. It is knowing how to see beyond so that, without knowing these people in depth, you can decipher the relationship that unites them with each guest.
Wedding in the Espino Monastery
On their wedding day, we knew that they had a 10-month-old daughter, that they had been at the Bon Iver concert at the Euskalduna (yes, Bon Iver once again present in our lives…) and little else! But with that and with what we began to see as soon as we arrived at their wedding at the Monasterio del Espino, it was enough for us to know that we were in front of one of those weddings that we would remember forever, and boy, did we remember it!
It was so much affection that even today my eyes still water when I watch their wedding video (yes, call me a sissy, but from time to time I play the videos I have made because I like to remember the couples with whom we have shared such a happy day) I tell you that our daughter has also seen this video several times and she loves it! “What’s the baby’s name, Mom?” she always asks me.
Anyway, I’m going off on a tangent, I was going to tell you that not even water can ruin a wedding in Burgos in the middle of June. Getting married out doors has its risks, especially if it is in the north of the country, but knowing how to handle it so well is admirable and, as I always say, you can’t do anything against the weather, so there is only one thing left to do: enjoy! Rain, snow or heavy downpours. Finally, they were able to celebrate the cocktail and the religious ceremony outdoors and the rest of the wedding was inside the monastery.
Hannibal Laguna brides
You’ll see, but I’m sure you think the same as I do, Silvia looked great in her wedding dress from Hannibal Laguna and the natural flower crown made by the girls of Flowers and co (in charge of the floral decoration of the entire wedding) put the finishing touch to a ideal bridal look.
And to top off this beautiful love story, months after their wedding they informed us that a few days before the wedding they found out that they were expecting their second daughter. So now we know why there was so much magic on June 18.
To this day, we still keep in touch with this wonderful family and we couldn’t be more grateful that they chose us as their photographers and for everything they have cared about us. Thank you infinite, couple, we carry you in our hearts.
And here you can see the trailer of the wedding video we made at their wedding in the Monasterio del Espino (Burgos).
