My first Ibiza wedding of 2017 was up at the impossibly beautiful Santa Eulalia church, Puig de Missa. Perched high up above pretty countryside and blue seas this church is by far one of the most stunning to be found anywhere.
Julie and Barry are family of friends of mine so I was very excited to be asked to be their wedding photographer. All from Ireland their group totalled 110 which really takes some organising! As they’d been coming here for years I was interested to know not only why they had chosen Ibiza, but also what was it they most loved about having their wedding here. So I put together a few questions for them and they were kind enough to provide me with this their Ibiza wedding story…
Myself and Barry met through Gaelic Football, I was playing for the local ladies team and Barry and his brother Johnny (our best man) were our trainers. He fell in love with my competitive nature!!!!
I certainly did not always want a wedding abroad. I’m a real home bird, very attached to our community here at home in Mallow and always thought I’d get married in our local church and have the reception in a nearby hotel. I had this image in my head since I was 15 or 16. However, as I’m 30 I have been attending LOTS of weddings of late, roughly 10 per year for the last three years and I started to grow tired of the same style of wedding being recreated time and time again. I also watched some of best friends on their wedding days wade through 200+ guests trying to make small talk while barely spending time with their nearest and dearest, so when Barry proposed and I REALLY thought about it I realised I wanted a smaller, more intimate and different day, I also didn’t want just ONE day of celebrations when I had been waiting for this day for so long, I wanted a week long party with my best friends and family and that’s exactly what I got.
We got married in Puig de Missa in Santa Eulalia and had our reception in the beautiful La Casita in Cala Llonga.
We hope to return for a short stay in August if this year and if not we will certainly be back for our first wedding anniversary.
