Night falls at Sol den Serra, Ibiza

Some friends recently held their wedding at this wonderful venue in Ibiza. It lies overlooking a small secluded bay on the eastern coast of Ibiza, the famed ‘white isle’ in the Mediterranean. The weather was perfect, and as dusk fell the venue’s illuminations cast a surreal glow on the partygoers. We ate great food and toasted the couple and the speakers under the stars (the barbeque is clearly visible and was still warm when this picture was taken!).

I shot this as Andy, one of the guests, was at the climax of his party piece – a breathtaking performance with fire sticks. As he had to substitute a barbeque gel for the more usual paraffin he later revealed an impressive collection of low-intensity burns on his arms from the spattering fuel. Not a pastime for the fairhearted!

I loved the intensity of the lights and fire on the beach, and knew it would make a great panorama for this event. Thanks to Jack and Vix for the wedding invite: it was truly a night to remember, and I’m happy to have captured a flavour of the occasion.
