Ibiza Wedding Photographer // Stevie and James at Elixir

Ibiza Wedding Photographer

I could not wait to be Stevie and James’ Ibiza Wedding Photographer. Back in 2014 I shot Vicky and Matt’s wedding at Elixir Shore Club and I could not wait to return to one of the coolest venues in Ibiza. It’s always amazing when any couple books me for their destination wedding. I love travelling and it is a fantastic when a couple choose to fly me out to another country to shoot their wedding. It’s even more amazing when they book me without having met or even spoken to me. The first time I met Stevie and James was when I turned up at their villa for a BBQ the night before their wedding. Unsurprisingly Stevie and James were very relaxed when I did meet them and I had a great time chatting to their friends and family in the beautiful Ibiza sun.

Wedding at Elixir Shore Club

The following day I met up with Stevie for the bridal preparation before we set off to Elixir Shore Club. I love weddings at Elixir Shore Club. It is a beautiful venue, set up from a small beach in Cala Codolor with stunning views. The team at Elixir Shore Club are fantastic too. Una, the owner, even remembered me despite it being over two years since my last wedding there. It’s a brilliant venue for a wedding in Ibiza and I can highly recommend Elixir Shore Club.

The Lovely Laura

Stevie and James had a wonderful, personal service, officiated by one of their friends before their reception over looking the Mediterranean sea. We then sneaked away for 20 minutes, as the sun set over the beach, for their couple photos before we returned for the meal and brilliant speeches. For their first dance, Stevie and James had a suprise as they had booked The Lovely Laura to play Sax over their DJ set. Laura is a world famous sax player who has performed at all of the biggest clubs in Ibiza. She’s also performed for D&G, MTV and has supported Take That! Needless to say, Stevie and James’ party was absolutely awesome.

So here’s Stevie and James’ Ibiza wedding photography. Music by Moby, photos by me…

Elixir Ibiza Wedding Photography

Sometimes I can’t believe how lucky I am in my job. Being booked to shoot Vicky and Matt’s Elixir Ibiza wedding photography was definitely one of those moments. I’d met Vicky and Matt when I shot Debbie and Karl’s wedding at The Saddleworth Hotel in 2013. At the time Vicky was thinking of heading off abroad for a destination wedding and she asked if I traveled (which I emphatically said yes to!) A few months later Vicky and Matt had found their dream venue and had set their hearts on Ibiza and Elixir Shore Club. So I booked a Jet2 flight and in the middle of August flew out to the White aisle for my first ever Elixir Ibiza wedding photography job!

Wedding in Ibiza

Vicky was getting ready in Cala Llonga so I met her there for the bridal prep before sharing her taxi over to Cala Codolar to Elixir Shore Club. What a venue. A shabby chic paradise, set high on the cliffs over a small beach, Elixir is something else. Vicky was walked down the aisle by her brother before Matt and Vicky shared their wedding blessing in front of the stunning views of the sea. With glorious sun shining down it was one of the those moments where I had to remember I was actually working. A totally amazing service finished and the open bar started (so I knew it was going to be an amazing wedding). Although it did get a little hot (even the staff said it was a little warmer than usual, peaking at just over 40 degrees), everyone soaked up the sun and prosecco before I took the wedding party down to the beach for the group shots. Vicky and Matt didn’t want anything boring or stuffy, so we set the lads up to look cool and the girls to have fun. I LOVE the group shots, easily some of my favourite I’ve taken.

Ibiza Sunset

I was then invited to eat with the wedding party and I can hand on heart say this was the best wedding food I’ve ever eaten. A barbecue to beat all barbecue’s. It’s worth having your wedding at Elixir Shore Club for the food alone it’s that good. Then, as the sun started to set I grabbed Vicky and Matt and we went back down to the beach to get the classic Ibiza sunset in the couple shots. It was a spectacular experience and I think the shots do the sunset justice, before we headed back to the speeches and a huge party (which I get thoroughly involved with when the Nikon’s were packed away!)

Without doubt, the coolest wedding of the year and one of the highlights of my wedding photography career. Ibiza is a brilliant venue for your wedding blessing and Elixir is one of the best venues I’ve ever worked at. A stunning venue with amazing views and it’s run brilliantly by the team there. I cannot recommend it highly enough and if you are planning on heading out there, I’m more than up for a some more Elixir Ibiza wedding photography.
