Barcelona Wedding Photographer Elopement Package: Park Ceremony
One of my favorite type of sessions to photograph is my Barcelona Wedding Photographer Elopement Package.
Elopements are always so emotional and intimate. I love really getting to know the couple and share in their celebration. During these elopements, usually the ceremony consists of only the couple, myself, and an officiant. Therefore, I become a semi – bridesmaid / wedding planner / photographer / and most of all ‘tissue provider’ for the day! 😀 Though, usually the one who needs the tissues is me! I can’t help but tear up at these things! So much beautiful emotion 😀
For Meredith and Jon’s Barcelona Wedding Photographer Elopement Package, we planned the actual ceremony in the Labyrinth Park followed by portraits in the Gothic Quarter. I love that combination as it really provides us with two distinct backgrounds for the portraits: the lush green of the Labyrinth Park and the dark stone of the Gothic Quarter.
For their beautiful elopement, Jon choose to read one of my favorite poem’s by Pablo Neruda. Although Jon and Meredith are from Canada, Jon wanted to bring a little bit of the magic of Spanish-language to their Barcelona ceremony. I’ve included the Neruda text at the end of this post. 🙂
Congratulations to you both and thank you again for choosing me Barcelona Wedding Photographer Elopement Package.
“I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.”
This the translation of the Spanish-language text he spoke to Meredith through the words of Neruda… 🙂
So beautiful, right?! Of course I was going to cry after he said those amazing words to Meredith – and took the extra effort to say it in Spanish 🙂
