Friendship is everything. Friendship is more than talent. It is more than the government. It is almost the equal of family.
When a couple is able to bring together people from Italy, Brazil, France, England, Greece (among others) for their wedding, it means that are truly special. Not only they have friends from all over the world, but because they did not care to travel thousands of kilometers to share with Sonsoles and Marco such a special day.
The decision to celebrate the wedding in Toledo, at the Cigarral de las Mercedes, was perfect: spectacular views of the city, beautiful facilities and exquisite cuisine. As in their “other wedding” in London, they prepared a party which was personally designed and cared for every detail (I must admit that I loved seeing a whole table decorated with framed photographs from the session we did in London).

As occurred with their prewedding session, Cristina and Miguel decided to celebrate their wedding in Talavera de la Reina, the city that saw them grow as a couple. The venue chosen was La Casona del Lago, a charming cottage near the dam Cazalegas, the perfect place for a wedding because each nook is decorated with exquisite taste and the surrounding environment is truly wonderful.
This wedding was not only special because it’s gorgeous surroundings, but also I was lucky that for Cristina and Miguel photography was a high priority. We organized the schedule of the day so we could have enough time for everything (including a very touching first look) and make the most of the light. In addition, the couple got ready at the venue, so we had a more relaxed tempo that allowed us all to enjoy every moment of the wedding.
Thanks to Cristina, Miguel and their families for making us feel so comfortable and welcomed throughout the day.

Although I always have a great time in each photo session, Cristina & Miguel’s prewedding in Talavera was especially fun: colourful sun glasses, hats, the will to be photographed and a lot of love. With these ingredients, we just had to enjoy a pleasant summer evening.
