Niamh & Andy | La Cala Resort | Mijas | Spain | Destination Wedding

February 25th. 2014 | 6 Comments

It some times happens that we meet new poppiesandme couples through referrals from their friends. And that is just lovely. We kinda met Niamh and Andy this way. I said kinda because we were still working our friends wedding when we met them. Our eyes met across the dinner table …… {Only joking…okay I’m not!}. Niamh was wearing a stunning blue number and Andy said ” its a pity we are getting married in Spain. Caroline and Eoin are raving about ye.”  I replied while munching on a bread roll {attractive I know!} that we were very adaptable photographers, we were proud owners of battered suitcases and were extremely good airline passengers! We all laughed and honestly I didn’t think any more of it and partied the night away. Then one day Sean was like “do you remember Andy from Eoin and Carolines wedding………?

That was that! We were so so unbelievably privileged to be asked to do this wedding.  Niamh and Andy are incredible. There is just something about them. Niamh is a stunner, brilliant sense of humour and a heart that would melt stone. Andy is such a gentleman, so so super thoughtful and really is happy so long as he knows everyone else is content. Together they radiate this I don’t know “glow” isn’t the right word, its like when they are around you, there is this sense of warmth, of home. It really is very addictive. Its not surprising I guess, the two families are honest to goodness great people, they have a really tight bond. I mean we even got a card from Niamhs parents after the wedding to say they were delighted to meet us and thanks for everything. How nice is that?! And don’t get me started on their sons. Jack and Danny are such wonderful boys. Jack was one of the main “men” on the day. He told me that he was going to give a speech at the dinner. When I asked did he have it already written down or was he just gonna wing it? Jack replied with the wisdom of an old man, that he was neither reading anything out or “winging it”, his heart knew what it wanted to say.  And did it what! To see this young man stand up and have a room full of adults, clutching their bellies with laughter, to moments later having grown men and women wiping their eyes for the tears. It was beyond incredible. It was an absolute pleasure to get to know Jack. He will go far!

The wedding day was incredibly moving. There were happy tears, laughter, more tears, squeals and giggles on the beach as cocktails were sipped. Audible gasps when we got to the incredible venue up in the mountains, La Cala Resort. Any one of you guests that stayed there, all I can say is, ye are pure jammy and I hope you made good use of the pool bar! I think the manager thought we were mad with all the locations that we wanted to bring Naimh and Andy to for the wedding portraits, it was uber beautiful up there; but I think hopping fences and me hiding behind bushes was totally worth it. Sorry about the bugs Niamh!

We took a few days either side of this wedding for a wee brake of our own. The beautiful town of La Cala de Mijas is small. Which meant that we would often bump into friends or family of the couple. Going somewhere on our own was not an option. I mean that in the nicest way. We were practically adopted by everyone. Beach by day, meet up with everyone at night and share stories over some cocktails. I think if we had been there any longer I could have totally  forgotten that I had only just met all of these people.

WELL, I say I, because I can not take my husband any where with out being recognised! We were only off the plane two minutes in Malaga airport when one of the guest pipped up “Are you Sean Curtin? I know your father years!” This was a sentence I was to hear repeated a few times as well as “Aboi Seany, what are you doing here?” It was seriously redonkulous! The world is very, very small people. Or my Sean has a secret tv show that I don’t know about!!!

I can not finish with out saying a massive HELLO to Anita.  Anita is from what Niamh tells me a) a huge poppiesandme fan  and b) one of our number one promoters!  Niamh also informed me that, her friend was totally star struck by the Poppies, the first night we walked into the bar! This still makes me smile {in the best way Anita} I’m still wonderstruck at some one being star struck at us, I mean Anita you have met us now, we are just as normals as you! Its always nice to know that there is a lot of Poppiesandme love out there. And, as long as there is, we will continue to give it back in abundance.

Niamh, Andy, Jack and Captain Danny, Thank you so so much for a truly wonderful week away, for being the magical people you are. Thanks to your families for taking us in as they did. Thank you to Anita for making me smile, it was a pleasure to meet you. Last but not least, Caroline and Eoin, Thank you for getting married and seating us with Niamh & Andy. xxx
