Emma & Ben | Documentary Destination Wedding in Spain

What is most important to you about a wedding? Is it the ceremony, vows, flowers, cake, location, dance party, music, dress, shoes, photographs, video, food…?  There is no right answer, however what I love most about this wedding we are sharing today is that they chose important elements to a wedding and created their own spin!  I also am obsessed with how Nikola Smernic captured the event, in a very photojournalistic style, with nothing posed.  It seems that the ceremony, vows, and celebration with their friends and families were MOST important to this couple.  They didn’t take time to pose couple portraits or family posed formals, however had their photographer capture the organic emotional moments throughout the day.  It is quite refreshing to see this view point of a wedding.  Watching the day unfold naturally and allowing people to be themselves in all the images, nothing forced.  Wow does it create so many emotionally charged images, that in 10, 15 years will be able to bring this family and couple back to this day of celebration in a glance!

Nikola Smernic shared this unique destination wedding on the Island of Menorca. Nikola shared with us that, “Every time I receive an inquiry for a new wedding destination, I feel excited, inspired and very interested in learning and seeing more. It’s only a great bonus when such an inquiry comes from kind people like Emma and Ben. I realized that there will be something really sincere and amazing happening right after Emma explained to me that they’d love to have a pure documentary coverage of their wedding.  One of the first things the two of them had in mind about their wedding was having the greatest time with their kids, family and friends. So that’s exactly what they wanted in photos. No photo shoots except few formal family photos…

The island of Menorca (or Minorca in English), very peaceful island compared to its sister islands of Mallorca and Ibiza (all three are part of Balearic Islands in Spain), with some fantastic natural beauties and one gorgeous private property close to the town of Es Castell. The name of the property was Sant Joan de Binissaida and it’s a one of a kind boutique hotel and restaurant with the surroundings to die for…
There was a warm wind blowing throughout Emma & Ben’s wedding day which produced so many special and unique moments with Emma’s veil. When there wasn’t wind, these two and their amazing company took care of delivering so many intensive, emotional and fun situations in front of our cameras putting us into position of not knowing where to point and shoot first.  The ceremony itself was one of the most touching ones I had a privilege of seeing and photographing, it was not a ceremony of the joining of two people – it was the ceremony of joining together two close families.” – Nikola Smernic

Thank you so much Nikola for sharing this very unique intimate wedding in Spain, it truly embodies our view on why to have memories captured with photos.  To see people’s authentic story in the frame.
