Before describing this wedding in Masia Niñerola we have to go back to the begining, and it all starts with a coffee.We met Blanca and Alberto in a November afternoon, when sun isn’t hitting so hard and there’s an embracing and cozy cold air that wraps you and makes you curl. They started to tell us things about their wedding and we ended up having a lovely conversation while coffee kept us warm (everything is better with coffee, isn’t it?).
She’s from Valencia and he’s from Santander. Yes, Santander, in the amazing and privileged north. Don’t get it the wrong way, Valencia isn’t less, but human nature tend to lean in towards things we don’t have, and Santander has lots of green, woods and beautiful plants. We can’t express it enough: it has LOTS of green. Green, green. The one that looks so green that seems radioactive. It also has cold air and beautiful beaches with mountains nearby. As soon as Alberto said that David’s eyes were sparkling. He has visited many places of the area but Cantabria. Gijón, San Sebastián, Vitoria… We even did a wedding in Galicia, but never Cantabria. Maybe, as we said before, since human nature leans in towards things we don’t have or we haven’t visited, Cantabria represents that lack of something, and the stronger need to visit it. Or maybe is just that it is really beautiful, and that our preconceived image of the place is real.
(Well… we are beating around the bush -yes, those Cantabrian green bushes-) The thing is Blanca has a lot of family here -in Valencia- and since they both live in Santander they wanted to do their wedding in Valencia, but before getting to it we needed to go through their amazing prewedding in Valencia when they visited before the wedding day.
So, lets cut to the chase: the wedding day. After both bride and groom getting ready we drove towards the Nuestra Señora del Carmen church, behind Valencia’s School of Superior Art and design, where we both studied Artistic Photography and where we met. Life gives you such beautiful coincidences. From there we drove to Masía Niñerola, which is a great reminder of everything we love from Santander: green, green and… orange. Both colors very bold and intense, strong colors, beautiful and natural. The kind of color we love. In fact, Picassent’s road that leads you to the masia is filled by orange trees and, as you can see in the pictures, once you get into the masia there’s a straight road which is surrounded by trees and orange soil. A delight to senses.
From there is just pointless to keep describing everything since pictures talk by themselves. The only thing we can’t add is that it was a lovely day. Both the recently married couple and their guests were a solid 10 (David worked along with guests table number 4 to make them shout some words in order to get the couple to kiss, and in the end they all asked him to take a photo with him since they all had a great time together). It couldn’t be better.
Guys, you’re great! Now is time to keep walking your path as husband and wife (from Valencia to Santander there’s more than 700kms, so you already have walked great distance together).
That’s how Blanca and Alberto’s beautiful wedding in Masia Niñerola was…
