Ordained Minister - Religious & Non-Religious Blessings
A warm welcome to my website. Spain is an exceptional place to get married. It´s passion, romance, creativity, music, cuisine and excellent climate set it apart, leaving you with lingering memories. I couldn´t think of a better place to have a "dream wedding."
I came to Spain in the early 80´s to study Spanish guitar ending up living in Granada where I was captivated by its poetic ambiance listening to flamenco in caves, concerts in the Alhambra and beautiful nights out with friends.
Many years and several continents later my wife Melanie and I pastor Puerto Banús Christian Church in Marbella. We maintain a link to Granada by way of an old village house we have restored and made into a retreat house called Cortijo Sillar Baja.
I approach wedding blessings in much the same way as a musical composition. It must be original, natural, flow, have great rhythm with breathing space, personality, draw out emotions of laughter, awe and wonder, some room for improvisation, inspire, make a lasting impact and reflect the dreams and desires of the bride and groom as the primary composers.
Wether you would like a religious or non-religious ceremony, marriage accommodates both.
Please contact me to learn more about my services, to make sure I am available for your date, and to schedule a time to meet up over a drink if so desired.
