It was a treat to join London couple Sonia and Alex as their Destination Wedding Photographer for their Bogota Wedding. Bogota provided a stunning backdrop for the wedding celebrations as family and friends gathered and flew in to be there for the big day. Preparations began in at Santaboda who organised the day. The groom and best man got ready surrounded by the workshop and the bride dressed in their beautiful wedding dress atelier. The Bride looked stunning in a strapless 3/4 length dress with matching Converse sneakers. Before leaving for the ceremony and without seeing each other, Sonia and Alex took a quiet minute together and held hands – it was such a sweet moment and charged with emotion.
On to a museum in Central Bogota for the outdoor ceremony which was performed by a friend of the family. We could see the clouds clothing the top of the mountain as the ceremony started and a few yellow umbrellas came out ready for the rain that did not really come in the end. The design of the couple’s wedding rings was based on coastline and the map reference seemed so apt given the logistics invloved in this wedding. After the ceremony, everyone went through the the beautiful gardens and on to the reception. Once the Bogota Beer Company’s brews were opened the party really started! Weddings always bring loved ones together from far and wide, but this wedding did that in spades as family and friends from England and Colombia got to know each other. The speeches were in English and Spanish and it’s amazing how not understanding a language is no barrier to shedding a few tears! As you might suspect Colombians can really dance and the night ended with a packed dancefloor. These are some highlights from the day – Enjoy!
