Magical Historic Wedding at Castillio Belmonte

The Story: Travel back in time to the Middle Ages with this wedding at Castillo de Belmonte. Inspired by medieval mysticism, this styled shoot combines elegance, history and tradition to create a little bit of magic. 

The Location: Castillo de Belmonte. Located in Cuenca, only an hour and a half away from Madrid, this medieval castle dating back to the 15th century has been declared a national monument. It is one of the best preserved castles in Spain and was restored in the summer of 2010 making it an ideal wedding venue. 

The Vibes:  History and mystery, a modern take on medieval. This venue is steeped in history and didn’t need much embellishment to bring this theme to life. Rustic styling, like the tablescape adorned with candles and glass jars, was just the right touch. The bride’s floating gown with its chenille butterfly sleeves adds a sense of romance and femininity.

The Details: Lydia walked down the aisle in a dress by Jesús Peiro, with a mesh neckline, paying homage to the fashion of the medieval period. Sandro wore a navy-blue suit with a dark mauve waistcoat with salmon polka dots over a white shirt and a salmon bow tie, designed by Bere Casillas. The bride’s bouquet featured a range of colours including bright pinks, oranges and whites. 


  • Hydrangeas and roses are a versatile classic floral combination that can look both modern and classic depending on how they are styled.
  • To finish her look, Lydia wore bronze eyeshadow with black eyeliner and a pink lip, as well as a low ponytail and a bridal crown, an essential accessory for a medieval inspired bride.
  • Owls are symbolic of wisdom, intuition and magic and make an amazing accessory. Whether you are into owls or wedding llamas, if you are planning to include them in your wedding photos remember to always handle animals safely and responsibly.
