Wedding: Raquel & Justin

Here comes another beautiful wedding before we say good-bye to 2010 and welcome 2011! Today I have a very special wedding that was featured in the November issue of IDO magazine.
Raquel Camenzuli and Justin Haber celebrated their day in big style: from thousands of pink orchids, a beautifully dressed up church to an amazing castle dipped in pink light - it was truly one of the biggest and elaborate events I've photographed so far.

Here come the amazing details:

The bride - radiant

Raquel's back of the dress was made like a flowing waterfall

I love warm hearted family photos

The view from Raquel's house is simply breathtaking

father - daughter: going to the chapel

The bridesmaids were so excited to see the bride arriving

Look at their bouquets!

Few moments before

Justin got so emotional

and then the first look

The decor of the church


Overjoyed and the tears were flowing

The couple at the venue

and with the bridal party

The venue was decorated with crystals and wonderful light

Selmun castle changed colour for this special night

And a pink cake with crystals

You could find glass bowls with orchids and live fish

The First Dance *sigh*

sang by no other than Wintermoods

I love the expressions of everyone when Raquel and Justin were cutting the cake and in the backdrop the fireworks went off

Congratulations you two and a happy 2011 to everyone!

Wedding: Ellen & Aaron

I made a pact with myself. I promised myself to blog at least another wedding before Christmas comes around. I know I have neglected this blog a little bit so I hope this wonderful couple will make up for it.
I shot this wedding in conjunction with two amazing wedding planners/ designers. Marvik and Anna from
Malta Event Design.
Our couple were Ellen and Aaron from the US. These two are an incredible pair - they flew half around the world to make their vows in front of each other, 2 witnesses (their wedding planners and YES, no other guests!) in front of a staggering jaw-dropping landscape. A very unique wedding - even for me.

Here we go with the details:

Ellen, simply beautiful

The couple loved the characteristics of the Gozitan farmhouses and it worked so well for me.
Moments before Ellen went down the stairs to meet her groom.

Aaron before the big surprise, looking dapper :)

The couple opted for a FIRST LOOK. Ah, what a great expression when he sees his bride for the first time.

An intimate moment before the ceremony.

Walking to the ceremony site at....

Dwejra, Gozo! What a backrop!

There were lots of tears and emotions

Ellen and Aaron read personal vows to each other.

I could shoot around Dwejra anytime

This place looks great in black & white ... for my readers who haven't been here yet, yes it has something from a moon landscape... big rocks, cracks, and sea washed stone everywhere


The happy couple

The walk around the rocks is so worth it

Where do you get a view like this?!

Then we headed to the Inland Sea

In the evening, Anna and Marvik organized a ride with an authentic fisher boat taking the couple to the Blue Lagoon.

Here Ellen and Aaron spent the evening at a yacht for a romantic sunset dinner.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year. Thanks so much for tuning in, next year we have great new stuff lined up! Looking forward! :)
