Wedding at Finca Comassema
This wedding between Kate and Dorian represents why Mallorca is such a great destination for international weddings. From the beginning we knew it was going to be beautiful. From the moment I met them I was looking forward to photographing this wedding at Finca Comassema.
Kate is from Gibraltar and Dorian is French. When we met them online via skype we had a super fun meeting. They live in London and had everything very well organised from there. Of course the fact that Kate has been an event planner for a long time helps a lot. For the venue they chose to have the wedding at Finca Comassema.

They informed us of everything they had prepared and all their preferences for important moments to photograph. We knew Kate was going to have super bridesmaids as she has had great friends for many years. Also, her beautiful mother and two brothers would be very important.
On Dorian’s side his friends and family were going to put on a big party as well. The truth is that we could not imagine to what extent. His father, as you can see from the photos, gave us some funny moments and great pictures.
A week before we went to Finca Comassema to see the locations perfectly. As a wedding photographer in Mallorca I like to personalise each wedding. I know that each couple is unique. Everyone has their own taste and style and I prepare myself to make sure that everything is perfect and that you have the perfect wedding.
Groom preparations wedding at Comassema
Dorian greeted us with a smile and from the first minute he started with jokes. He is a lovely man who makes everything super easy. He seemed very calm and organised.
On a table he had put matching socks and ties for all his groomsmen. There was also a box of cigars that Kate had given him.
There were to be six groomsmen and we placed them in front of a wonderful window with very good light. Dorian told us that he had wanted his father to be there for the preparations. But he had gone to the swimming pool and would not be able to come. That said, he suddenly appeared in his swimming trunks. The towel on his shoulder, wet and with swimming goggles on his head.
It was like an appearance in a french comedy film. All smiles, he thought it was great that we asked him to pose like that, putting his son’s tie on. It was great, until now I hadn’t had anything like that in the groom’s preparations. He gave me a spectacular and super funny photo.
When we went outside and everyone was drinking a whisky, he suddenly appeared at the window. He grabs the bottle of whisky and joins everyone, we couldn’t stop laughing, it was great. This wedding at Finca Comassema promised a lot.
Bride wedding preparations at Finca Comassema
From there we went to the Hotel L’Hermitage where Karen was having her hair and make-up done. She had hired Ala Perfect Hair and Makeup who I had worked with at other weddings. Kate looked beautiful and very natural, she looked like an international model. For me as a wedding photographer in Mallorca it was a dream.
Kate’s mother already dressed in her outfit looked stunning. We understood where Kate got her beauty from. One interesting thing too, being from Gibraltar they have had a totally bilingual education. They switched from speaking perfect British to Spanish with an incredible Andalusian accent. It was great fun. From there we went to the wedding venue at Finca Comassema.
Wedding at Finca Comassema
Kate preferred to wear her dress at the Finca Comassema. In the porch at the back there is a small window and the light that comes through it is magical.
I tried to make the most of the place. Kate looked spectacular, she had chosen a dress from Made with Love Bridal, elegant and modern as she is and it fitted her perfectly. Her mother and her friends helped her put it and her shoes on.
Little by little the guests were arriving and Dorian and his groomsmen went to welcome them. There were about 110 guests from all over the world, France, UK, Italy, Gibraltar etc….
The ceremony was already prepared by Floristeria Es Brot and the sun was going to be important as it was the month of August in Mallorca. Everything was ready for what promised to be a great and beautiful wedding at Finca Comassema Mallorca.
Wedding Photographer Finca Comassema
Dorian was going to wait for Kate at the altar, we were ready for her to make her grand entrance. At last the Finca Comassema bell rang which meant that the bride was going to make her entrance.
At the bottom of the stairs the groomsmen were waiting and offered their arms one by one to the bridesmaids coming down. Kate made her appearance on the arm of her two brothers. She was nervous and happy and looking forward to seeing Dorian.
The officiant was Annie Verrinder who I have worked with before and love. She is also one of the best weddings planners in Mallorca. She made it a very enjoyable ceremony telling anecdotes about the two of them. It was all very simple and had some funny parts where we laughed a lot.
They put on their rings and melted into a kiss before making their exit. At the end of the aisle there were confetti cannons that exploded. The couple kissed again and all the happy guests stood up and clapped their hands and congratulated the bride and groom. For me as a wedding photographer in Mallorca it was all wonderful.
Cocktail and dinner Comassema
We moved on to the cocktail area where the Amida catering was already very well prepared. There was all kinds of appetising food on trays from one side to the other.
All the guests were having a great time congratulating the bride and groom as they moved from one group to the next. Amida had also set up amazing food stations. There was one with a chef making delicious pasta inside a cheese, another one making different kinds of scrambled eggs and even a barbecue with prawns and shrimps.
During the cocktail there were several very emotional speeches especially from Dorian’s brother and Kate’s brother Richard.
It was hard to hold back the tears, he had to stop a couple of times because he was crying with emotion, it was very beautiful. There was so much love and affection at this wedding and you could feel that they were one big family.
Couple pictures at Finca Comassema
Halfway through the cocktail party we caught the bride and groom as the sun and heat had gone down a bit to take couple photos. I had planned to take a photo of them in the field with all the groomsmens and bridesmaids. I had bought tubes of white smoke for everyone as I wanted to take a specific photo.
It was amazing and we had a great time, the photo came out perfect. Then we went with them to the ceremony area and I sat them on two chairs with champagne. We took several photos where they had a great time and a wedding at Finca Comassema gives you many possibilities as it is such a beautiful Finca.
We got back quickly because as a wedding photographer in Mallorca I don’t like the bride and groom to miss anything of their wedding.
They all went to the banquet area which was amazing with all the decorations they put up.
The Amida group apart from having one of the best organization in Mallorca makes wonderful food. I always love the service and everything.
First dance and party
After a magnificent dinner we all went to the area where the tree is all lit up with little lights. It is one of the signs of identity and I love it. For the photos it is essential that there is always good lighting and here I enjoy it very much, there are always very good photographic results.
Kate and Dorian did the cake cutting and immediately after their first dance.
They were accompanied by all the guests lighting sparklers, they stood around them and it was magical.
The DJ from Lomusic Espectacles started the music and the party. Everyone started dancing with Kate and her bridesmaids first.
It was great to see everyone happy and enjoying themselves. At this wedding at Finca Comassema I had a great time and even danced with the bride and her brother. We said goodbye to Kate and Dorian thanking them and congratulating them again. It had been an amazing wedding that we will always remember.
