Marbella wedding in Spain

Why you shouldn’t use a drone for your wedding photos

Posted on Posted in getting married in Spain

Oh, I have news for you! If you are planning a wedding in Spain, or actually any wedding at all, you better pay attention. My little weekend experience might save you from making a horrible mistake on your most important day.

Last weekend, was the first wedding I ever attended. I know this sounds crazy, but it’s true. I couldn’t believe it either. However, I found the reason behind this. It just happens, that all my lady friends are ambitious career women and have had multiple successes in their professional lives. A lot of my friends still don’t plan to get married until they reach a point, where they feel stable and self-sufficient. I think this is also my case. Anyways, Susanne was the first from the group to tie the knot and say I do. She had her wedding in Spain, more specifically in Marbella.

The wedding

It was a wonderful ceremony. They had their wedding with a wonderful view of the beach. This is why there is a growing demand to have a wedding in Spain. The groom’s eyes totally lit up as Susanne walked down the aisle, with the warm sun making her dress shine. As she approached the altar, there were violins playing in the background. Everything was perfect at that point. When the music stopped, everything changed. There was a sudden buzzing that was coming up from above, and at that moment I realized, that Susanne didn’t book a professional photographer. She has a drone take her wedding photos. Big mistake!

The noise

Imagine someone mowing your lawn right next to you, as you are saying your I-do’s at your wedding in Spain. It was so incredibly annoying, there are no words in describing the horrible buzzing sounds. The drone was flying around above us, beside us, in front of us. It was everywhere and it wouldn’t shut up. It was so loud and distracting, that it ruined the whole ceremony. None of the guests could hear anything, and I totally missed every word from the couple’s vows. I couldn’t hear anything at all! Moreover, I couldn’t keep focus on the couple for the rest of the ceremony, as I was distracted by the drone moving around. Horrible! Really horrible. Susanne told me later, that she got really frustrated with it too.

 

Not really worth it

As a result of the drone being so high and flying around all the time, it didn’t get to take any high-quality close-ups. They have a lot of panorama photos and good videos, but no photographs showcasing those special moments, e.g. the exchange of vows. The drone definitely didn’t capture the look in the groom’s eyes, as the bride walked down the aisle. The photos from the drone have no emotions. Although, the photos will show stunning scenery and prove that you had a wedding in Spain, my advice is simple and clear. Get yourself a professional wedding photographer. The noise, the distraction and the bird’s eye photos are definitely not worth it. Hire a pro!
