A Beautiful Wedding at the Don Carlos Hotel

Joanne and her lovely family were one of our first clients to book us for 2010.

 They had left plenty of time to book all their suppliers and were very organised which was wonderful for us as we were able to plan and get ready in plenty of time.  I had gold butterflies in stock for Joanne's wedding in March of this year :)

It was a fabulous day at the Don Carlos hotel beach club organised by Joanne at Marbella Marriages

We created an ivory and gold butterfly theme providing a ceremony area in the beautiful gardens of the Don Carlos with an arch, aisle runner and dresesed the aisle with a swag and gold butterflies. 

Much needed fans were provided decorated in ivory ribbons and gold butterflies for the guests. 

We created a gorgeous ivory rose bridal bouquet complete with some rather decadent feathers to add that vintage look and a few little butterflies.  Confetti cones filled with ivory petals were provided, although a slight hiccup happened and our gold petals for the tables were grabbed in a panic for some reason and thrown as well at the ceremony!  These were retrieved afterwards and used on the tables :)

Joanne's theme was a champagne and gold so we dressed the chairs in the beach club with champagne sashes.  The Don Carlos do work with a talented florist and they provide table centrepieces included in the wedding package which are always very good. 
We just added to this by providing table mirrors and tealights, decorated the centrepieces provided with gold butterflies, scattered the tables with gold petals (thank goodness) and used gold butterflies to decorate the glassware and gold butterfly placecards and table seating plan.  We dressed the pool area with lots of candles and lantern bags to add that romantic touch to the evening as it became dark.

Our thanks to Jeremy for these wonderful photos of this beautiful wedding, it was a lovely day and of course completed with the wedding A team out in force, Ian got the party going with a swing and Kathryn did the fabulous make up and hair.

An elegant wedding cake was made by Rosemary complete with gold butterflies.

We loved the surprise the parents organised for Joanne and Alistair, they had flown in a favorite singer for them, Cole Page, who charmed and delighted the guests with his fabulous repetoire and even had them all standing on their chairs!
