Destination wedding at Tamarit Castle, Tarragona, Spain | Saylee + Gregg
Do you want to celebrate your wedding in a castle next to the sea?
If you are thinking of getting married near the sea, why not in a castle? In this article I will talk about the experience of participating in a destination wedding at the Tamarit Castle, in Tarragona (Spain).
Being a wedding videographer has some advantages over other jobs. One of them is the number of beautiful places that can be known in a year. And you don’t have to go far from Barcelona (which is where I live). There is a growing tendency to look for beautiful places to celebrate weddings. And besides, they are more affordable places than it may seem at first. It is only a matter of don’t be late because they are usually very popular places and they are booked soon.
Some of these sites can be restored old farmhouses, old monasteries, restaurants with gardens and even castles. And in most of them, the current tendency is to hold civil ceremonies.
This is the case of the wedding I present in this article, the one I shot the wedding video: the destination wedding of Saylee and Gregg. Saylee and Gregg are a couple full of sensitivity, with a great sense of humor and their wedding was a cascade of emotions.
It all started the day before with the Hindu celebration of the Sangeet. The chosen place was the incredible restaurant La Daurada, in Vilanova i la Geltrú (one hour from Barcelona by car). This place has incredible views to the Mediterranean sea. In the Sangeet, most of the guests were painted with hena in different parts of their bodies. The good energy and the desire to dance and have a good time that would follow the wedding day was already chewed in the environment. For my part, it seems to me precious that the couple want to maintain traditions that have to do with their roots; this also greatly enriches the wedding video and makes it more authentic and different.
Already on the day of the wedding, preparations began in Sitges, a very famous town in Catalonia 40 minutes from Barcelona. And from there we traveled 25 minutes by car until we reached the majestic Tamarit Castle, overlooking the Mediterranean. That day the sea was rough, making the landscape even more cinematic.
The ceremony was super emotional. For Saylee and Gregg, their wedding was super special because it also meant their farewell party as they were about to move from New York to Shanghai.
To me, it was a pleasure to shot their wedding video. I leave the trailer down here. I hope you like it :).
