#Meet Ibiza people | Danielle Alex Balmer

It was in summer 2015, a few weeks before I found out I was pregnant for the 3rd time. Every Tuesday and Thursday I joined the group sessions of The Workout Club Ibiza on the beach in Santa Eularia. Running on the beach, burpees, jumping jacks and all the stuff I don’t like to do but my body needs the training and the feeling I survived another session makes me happy.

I remember the day when I met Danielle on a Thursday morning.

She just moved to Ibiza from the UK and on the surface you could have thought she is shy and quiet, but she was just tired. She worked nightshifts as waitress in a bar in Es Canar till early in the morning, got breakfast and then joined the workout before she went to sleep and started her following workday. Danielle joined every training and I felt her drive immediately. Deep inside she had that feeling telling her, her current situation is a bus ticket to her future, not the final destination and she kept her focus.

Wow, I like that kind of people a lot. People with vision.

In 2016, her best friend asked her to be her maid of honour and Danielle dove into the world of weddings via pinterest and other online inspiration and she got caught by the wedding magic. She made the decision to study as a Family Celebrant and became a professionally certified Celebrant a few months later, after training with the UK Society of Celebrants.

And today she is the important person who is directly next to the happy couple while speaking out their promises towards each other. And that’s what she loves to do, creating a very personal and individual wedding ceremony just like every couple and lovestory is. She lets the magic happen.

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, just an hour before sunset when we did the shoot in my garden. My youngest son Avan and my dog Rocky were running around us while I took pictures of this beautiful soul.

Do you have the feeling she’s magic? Of course she is! We have a little secret I won’t tell on the internet.

Thank you so much and enjoy!

x, Jen
