A marriage proposal ...
...and a wedding in Ibiza
A Dream for many Loving Couples
A dream for many loving couples.
Marvin and Ashley made this dream come true . And I was so lucky to photograph them both. Not only did he surprise her going down on one knee with Es Vedra in the background, last year the couple actually said ´I do´ to each other at a bold and romantic Ibiza weddng
The first contact I had was with Marvin, a bit nervous, telling me he wanted to propose his longtime girlfriend in front of Es Vedra. They met at a house party, with their parents, and it was love at first side. The name of the party ¨Love is We´ was (and still is) according to the couple very appropriate. " That's really how it is. "Love is we." In 2015 Marvin and Ashley came to Ibiza for the first time. " And that too was love at first sight. The relaxed vibe on the island immediately felt like coming home.
Melvin and I made a plan to do a photo shoot on a few different locations, I picked for them, with the last location with Es Vedra as backdrop where he could propose. Once in Ibiza he acted as if he had arranged the photo shoot on the spot at the hotel reception. We had a wonderful afternoon together visiting Sa Caleta, Es Cubells and Es Vedra. Where she said YES !.
After this proposal in Ibiza, the couple dreamt of getting married on the island. A dream that became a reality and I felt honoured to photograph this special day as well. It was a special day with their friends and family. Perhaps extra special because they all stayed in one large villa. Together as one big family. The wedding ceremony itself took place with the view of Es Vedra. An emotional, beautiful ceremony took place, after which everybody went back to the villa where the catering was in full swing with a party to remember.
It's pretty clear. Ibiza has a special place in the heart of Marvin and Ashley and since that first time, they visit Ibiza at least once a year, sometimes even twice. And when here, we meet up for a drink and talk.
