Commercial and Wedding Photography: La Arboleda del Sur de Echaurren, Ezcaray, La Rioja, Spain

La Arboleda del Sur de Echaurren, Ezcaray

Among the most eagerly anticipated restaurant openings this year in Spain has been the Echaurren’s Arboleda del Sur in Ezcaray. Hotel Echaurren has La Rioja's only two-star Michelin restaurant and has long been a favourite wedding venue both locally and further afield. 

However, space was limited… until now! The Arboleda is purpose-built for events of more than 50 people with adaptable spaces depending on the size of the party. And, being just on the limits of Ezcaray, has beautiful views of the surrounding hills. From a photographic point of view it’s great to be able to incorporate some of these views into my wedding photography; it’s part of the narrative of where the couple are getting married.

These photos are from the inaugural week and were commissioned by the hotel. I really appreciated the huge amount of natural light and clean, uncluttered, backgrounds both inside and outside the building. This helps me in making simple yet elegant and beautiful compositions.
