The sun shone but it was not too hot and with just a mere breeze, it was the perfect day for a wedding.
As I said yesterday, this was a first for Pamela and I – a Spanish wedding.
The setting was Bahia Costa at La Mata, the wedding ceremony itself was in the garden area followed by canapés and drinks in the salon. We then moved to the main banqueting room for the wedding breakfast. Later on there was a disco back in the salon with a free bar.
Of course, a sumptuous meal like this would be just food if the company you ate it with was less than enjoyable. If you have never been to a Spanish wedding, I can tell you they are boisterous affairs. There was a lot of cheering and clapping as the guests encouraged the bride and groom to kiss over and over again.
Everyone was there to enjoy themselves – a total fiesta as you might expect and far less formal than most British weddings.
From all this, you have probably gathered that Pam and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I am finding it hard to choose suitable words sufficient to thank Eladia and Joaquin for inviting us. We hope that they enjoyed their day and have a very happy and prosperous life together as man and wife.
