Simplistic Majorca Vow renewal at the stunning Son Marroig.

I worked with Charlotte and Paul to capture their amazing wedding day at Clevedon Hall, which was a bright and beautiful sunny day in May. They were such an amazing couple to capture. With a loving family, fun bridal party and a Giraffe cake and champagne pop to end the night. I often see their adventures on instagram and Charlotte even emailed asking for tips as they were doing their honeymoon at the amazing Giraffe Manor where I have captured a wedding day.

Son Marroig dreams

It is always amazing to keep in touch with my couples. So when it came to doing a vow renewal for Charlotte and Paul it was a very quick yes! Fast forward to this then being held in one of my favourite locations, the stunning Son Marroig in Majorca. This beautiful Majorcan country estate dating back to the 17th century, sits just outside of Deia and was the former residence of the archduke Ludwig Salvador of Austria. Son marroig has breathtaking views of the sea and the rocky cliffs of Sa Foradada. With the Carrara marble pavilion is where you are allowed to say your vows. As normally this is fully gated off to the public when the venue is open as a museum during the day. With access for weddings taking place after 5pm. As a Destination wedding photographer I have always wanted to capture a wedding here so it was a perfect location choice!

Creating the perfect setting

This day was all about simplicity. Charlotte and Paul wore the same wedding outfits as their wedding day and decided not to dress the venue with flowers of a carpet runner. Instead option to let the venue do the talking. This was all about their love. The only thing Charlotte had was a simple bouquet made by a local florist in the centre of Palma. As they did not do personal vows on their wedding day, just the ones provided by the registrar. It was perfect to allow their own vows to be the centre of the ceremony, so they decided to each write their own vows, so they could say them to each other in private.

They decided to keep the day simple. Spending the day together and then booking Son Marroig for a sunset ceremony before heading back to their hotel for a private dinner. As the hire time we had at the venue was short, we decided to have a little warm up photo session on the beach as it has been a bit of time since being in front of the camera. It was amazing to see them and get excited about heading to renew their vows.

A vow renewal by the sea

Arriving at Son Marroig was a dream come true. Charlotte and Paul had the most perfect weather. As their day was out of season for Majorca it was always a worry if they would get a rainy day. So when the day was forecast dry it was great, when the evening was forecast full sun and golden hour we were so excited. As the marble pavilion is famous for its warm sunsets so it was amazing to see this in person. Before doing their ceremony we did a few photos around the gardens to make sure the light for the ceremony was just right. As this was their vow renewal and the day was just about the two of them, we discussed having graham perform this instead of getting a celebrant. It was not something that Graham has ever done, so I wrote their script and added in their personal vows with a ring exchange and first kiss. It was so lovely doing this with Graham, as normally we might work together on bigger wedding days doing the photography between us. But for smaller wedding days and elopements it is normally just me. So having Graham there be part of the day in this capacity was really lovely. And this allowed the day to be very private for Charlotte and Paul.

Final photos as the sun went down

Once the ceremony was complete, we did some final photos on the steps of the marble pavilion. As well as on the balcony of the main house which was bathed in a warm glow as the sun was going down. And finally, we ended the day the same way we ended their wedding day… with a champagne pop!
