Iglesia Nova in Son Servera Mallorca

The church in Son Servera on the island of Mallorca is Iglesia Nova. This church is unusual in that it has no roof, despite being a relatively new church, dating back to the early part of the twentieth century. With influences from the architect Antoni Gaudi, the structure has a modernist influence. It can be a very unique venue to hold the ceremony but it is open to the elements, as was the case on this particular day. Well…the rain came down and came down torrentially. This is unusual but it can happen.

Certainly as a photographer I managed to capture some unusual photographs due to the warm spirited guests. People pull out all the stops when faced with adversity, so there were many smiles all round. The brollies replaced the parasols… The walk down the aisle, surrounded by umbrellas made for some quite marvelous captures. This was not the best result for the bride on her wedding day, but the results were fantastic for me and I’m sure they will bring smiles to the couple when they remember the day. Guests striding over puddles and mesmerized by the sheer downpour. When it rains in Mallorca, it comes down heavily and this was no exception.

The reception was held at Son Corb, described as a boutique style hotel. It is an impressive venue near the east coast and is well worth putting on your list of places to view, if you are planning to have your wedding on this side of the island. A low rise building which use outside caterers for large bookings. The pool area is beautifully landscaped with an outside bar area. The hotel is very close to the coast and walking distance to Sa Punta restaurant, where the couple had a reception for their guests on the night before their wedding day.
