ISTAN, ANDALUCIA, 21ST APRIL 2018

INSPIRING, CREATIVE AND FUN


Created by Laura at Reviva Weddings and Claire at Butler & White Weddings, The Andalucian Lake Workshop opened its doors last weekend and what an incredible experience it was from start to finish!


Armed with a passion to bring excitement and the wow factor into their own creative portfolios, Laura and Claire came up with the idea of hosting a styled wedding shoot also providing the perfect opportunity for photographers to join them.


With a competitive market and a desire to stand out from the crowds, the workshop soon filled up with like-minded creatives wishing to invest in their businesses.


Photographers joined us on April 21st in a stunning Hacienda overlooking the Istan Lakes against a backdrop of Andalucian mountains 

for an inspiring and creative afternoon of shooting.


Whilst the weather was not really on our side, it was a bit gloomy but atmospheric, this did not dampen the spirits of our wonderful team who have all taken away not only fabulous images for their portfolios but also shared a memorable experience.


The location certainly had the wow factor with stunning views over the Istan Lake, resembling Lake Como was one comment.


It really was a fun inspiring afternoon with a brilliant team shooting a beautifully styled wedding.


Later in the day we stopped for a break sharing our afternoon experience over some delicious Spanish style canapes washed down with sangria and cava. 


Being an entrepreneur can sometimes be a pretty solitary pursuit, even when you have a team around you, so we loved that we also facilitated support, fired up some creative minds, made connections and new friends. 


The shoot was delightful with our gorgeous models, designer floral wedding dress and veil, stunning florals, a beautiful ceremony setting overlooking the lake, the wow table setting, calligraphy stationery, jewellery and many more details including hand died silk ribbons from Claire.


It was evocative of Spain, using dark wood doors as backdrops, vibrant florals and plenty of fabulous textures to add depth and interest.


We were supported by an amazing team of collaborators all working on this shoot.  

Their enthusiasm was so infectious and everyone involved worked so hard, we cannot thank our suppliers enough.

Wonderful professional relationships have been created and the joy of being able to support and network with each other has been amazing.

THE LOCATION

Our wedding shoot was located in the most stunning Hacienda overlooking the fabulous Istan lakes with an incredible backdrop of mountains.  


This luxury hacienda style villa boasts a wealth of Spanish styled interior details including an Andalucian tiled inner courtyard, authentic rustic wooden doors and beautiful gardens with a spectacular pool.


It was the perfect location for taking fabulous images against the backdrop of the atmospheric lake on a rather unsunny day and a beautiful setting for some very stunning images.  


A mini Lake Como one of our photographers said as she squealed with delight when she arrived and took in the beathtaking views!


ABOUT THE TEAM

Laura, the owner of Reviva Weddings and Claire of Butler & White are two creatives who got together over coffee and decided to chase their dream of creating what we love best, styling weddings.


Often we are limited to what we can create for our real weddings as we are defined by the clients style and budget so we came up with the idea of creating gorgeous workshops for like minded people wanting to push themselves to the next level of fine art and styling.  


Living in Andalucia brings us a wealth of inspiration and we hope by joining us on our journey you will be able to create your dream portfolios to brand your business and take it to the next level.  For future workshops information do contact us on laura@reviva-weddings.com
