A very long engagement...

I got an email from Tommi requesting information about wedding photography for a small destination wedding, with just 5 people and the wedding officiant. I love shooting small weddings, so I was excited already… then I read on…  “We’ve been engaged already for 26 years and now finally decided to get married!”

What?! I had to read that again. Yep, I read it correctly…  engaged for 26 years! Now I KNEW I had to meet this couple!

Toimmi and Kati lived in the Netherlands and had often visited Mijas, Spain on vacation, so it had special meaning to them. This was where they chose to get married and asked me if I could capture the memories for them

They had 3 boys, two nearly grown, and decided it was time to finally tie the knot, so they planned a trip back to Spain and made the arrangements for their big day!

They got married in a tiny church in Mijas built into a rock cave. Such a stunning setting!

After a short ceremony (which was in Dutch, so I didn’t catch a word!) we went outside to capture a few photos.

Congratulations you two! I wish you all the best for the NEXT 26 years and beyond!
