Sant Bartomeu Soller


Soller, which is one of the main towns of Mallorca, has long been a enjoyed and popular destination for tourists and the people of Mallorca alike. The importance of the town has long been recognised, as the port and the town were an important trade route for ships arriving from France and from the north. In 1912 a railroad was built which linked the capital of Palma to Soller, through the Tramuntana Mountains. An expensive and dangerous engineering feat.

Like anyone visiting or living on the island, I have spent hours exploring the town and enjoying a drink in the main square where the tram runs which transports passengers down to the port. The church dominates the square. I have visited the church many times and admired the build. It has therefore been a place which we had hoped of someday photographing a wedding here. Built in the 1200’s in the typical Gothic style, the church was updated in the 1700’s in typical Baroque style and finally a disciple of Gaudi completed the transformation last century.

Having photographed in many of the churches around the island, this one had until this year, not been on our summer schedule. However, a phone call late last year and a subsequent meeting has firmed up this as a location for a spectacular wedding later in the summer.

We know, having the use of the church and the many iconic streets, buildings and landscape around Soller, will result in a great visual story for the couple and their families. After the wedding ceremony we will travel the old road to the very top of the mountain range, to enjoy the wedding reception at an exclusive restaurant which overlooks the city of Palma and the island to the south. The link below shows the spectacular views from where the wedding party will enjoy their wedding reception and evening celebration.
