Initial note: this wedding was very private and close. We have been asked to show the less pictures as possible, and avoid faces recognition. Out of respect to the couple and their family we have followed their indications and uploaded few pictures, even though it was an amazing wedding and we would love to show you more.
Spanish north has always had something for us. When David was 15 years old he traveled to Gijon (Asturias) and the 4.1kms tunnel called ‘El negrón’ between León and Asturias marked him. Before entering this long tunnel everything was green-orange, or green-dull, and when it was over everything turned green. But not any green. Green like it was radioactive, it was amazing.
The ambient up there is different: it seems paused and calm, the air is fresh and the mountain has something different than Valencia’s. The fog, which makes everything mystic and different, is dense and static. It can be present a whole day -where in Valencia stays for 10-20 minutes tops-, and from the plane seems to create small lakes at dawn.
As we said, the north has something special, and a wedding there was something we really looked forward. There’s where P and L appear with their wedding in the Pazo a Toxeiriña, in Moraña (Pontevedra, Galicia).
Since the beginning they knew they wanted something private and personal -in fact their were only 17 guests- where they can be with their people surrounded by nature and calmness. Following this very idea it all starts in the hotel Torre do Rio, an amazing textile complex restored from XVIII century which is around the Umia river and fully covered with green, peace and nature. The pool has no chlorine, the water recycles with the river passing through. The building is made with stone respecting the old structure and camouflaging itself between mountains. Few steps from there there’s a roman bridge which lets you get some perspective of the privileged location and appreciate the amount of trees and green that surrounds you.
Going on a little bit we went to a XII century church, also made from stone, connected by a road that passes by through the mountain. The size was ideal for the kind of ceremony that P and L wanted for their day.
And, of course, the Pazo a Toxeiriña, an amazing place for an amazing wedding.
Everything was incredible, and the couple (now married couple) were even better: wonderful people with many years behind them and in perfect harmony. Who would say that a football match will get them so long?
This is their wedding in the Pazo a Toxeiriña.
