We want to thanks Myriam and Javier for choose bodakids as their wedding photographer and video and for allow us to share their wedding experience in a interview for confeti weddding magazine.
Why did you choose Spain? Why the venue?
We chose Spain and most particularly Marbella and Estepona, is because of the amazing weather. I insist on the weather, because I did not have to stress about a rainy day at my wedding, something that many brides stress about before the big day. We chose PuroBeach as our venue because we wanted an untraditional wedding party on the beach and an amazing ambience. This is exactly what purobeach offered us. I t was actually the only venue that let us do the party outside.
Your style – What did you have for your wedding dress, bridesmaids, colours, flowers, décor, ceremony?
My style for the wedding was elegant and at the same time fresh. Having the celebration on the beach, I opted for an elegant strapless wedding dress with laces. The dress was adjusted and had 2 layers. My bridesmaids where wearing blue mint strapless dresses and their style matched mine. I chose white flowers at the church and at the venue. The decoration was very elegant and had a beach theme. Everything was white and blue and the guests where seated on different islands (tables). The ceremony was in the Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Encarnacion in the middle of the old Marbella. The church is so beautiful that I did not have to decorate it that much.
Themes – what food did you provide? Music, special touches, cake?
The wedding had a Beach Theme. The cocktail was on the sand and we had a Hawaiian Band that played exotic music and they were serving special cocktails. For dinner, we had a buffet with different type of food. We had Lebanese, Spanish and a Japanese Peruvian fusion. We had belly dancers to entertain the guests during the dinner and then after the cake and the speech, we had another type of band to start the night on the right track. Then when the DJ started, we had a saxophonist and 2 persons doing a fire show. We had entertainment the whole time because we wanted to surprise our guests and escape from the traditional weddings. The cake was also white and blue and decorated with starfish. To make it easier for our guests and us we opted for a beautiful 3 floor cupcakes that didn’t need to be cut.
Why did you choose Bodakids as your wedding photographer? Were you happy with the final result of their work?
I had a very tough time choosing a wedding photographer because I am not Spanish and my husband is from Madrid. So we did not have any reference in Malaga. I was going through all wedding websites, photographers’ websites and so on. I can assure you that this was not the easiest task. I chose Bodakids because of their professional work and their videos. I remember I was crying when I saw a few of them, and it was so real that I got so excited to my wedding day. I was very happy with the result of their work, they were taking photos of each special moment.
It is very important to book the right photographer, because at the end of the wedding, when your special day is over and you would like to repeat it again and again, the only things left are your memories and the photos.
“If I had to do it again, I would change…?”
Nothing…Everything was exactly the way I wanted it 🙂
What would be your advice for future brides getting married?
I would advice them to start preparing the wedding more than 6 months before, to enjoy every single preparation day because it is really fun even though stressful sometimes. The last thing I would advice them is to enjoy every second of the wedding because each moment will happen only once, so don’t let anything or anyone stress you on that day and if things don’t go exactly the way it was planned, it doesn’t matter because no one will know anyway.
