Moraira is the secret destination I’m reluctant to tell you about. Ten years ago, my parents bought a little bolt hole here, and we have been sneaking off to this corner of paradise ever since. It’s all about the understated glamour here, and while it may also be holiday home to sporting celebs like Chris Eubank, Sam Allardyce & Fabio Capello (and not-so-sporty Nigella), it’s nothing like Marbella. You won’t see any TOWIE types around here. Simply put, there are no neon lights in sight.
The story of my first destination wedding begins right here, where a chance encounter with the brides dad Tim brought me to my lovely bride & groom.
Michaela, who met Loic (yes, he’s French!) and fell head over heels for his gallic charm, got married on a sun-drenched September day. On a rooftop terrace overlooking the sparkling ocean this beautiful couple exchanged their vows, this is the dream.
I honestly could never describe this day in words, from the warm welcome Michaela and Loic’s families gave me, to the exceptional service provided at the Sol y Mar, and the all-round craic factor with tears, dancing and SO much love on show.
Michaela and Loic, I wish you a long and happy married life with all my heart.
You two have some incredible adventures ahead…
