A striking Hot Pink and Lime Theme at Finca Cortesin

In the height of the summer here in Spain we decorated the beautiful wedding of Susan and Sean. Starting with top hats and tails at the Encarnacion Church in Marbella, followed by a fabulous reception at the Finca Cortesin.   A huge well done to the lads who managed to keep their hats and jackets on in the spanish July heat!!

Susan wanted a brightly coloured scheme using hot pinks and limes and was quite determined to have as many flowers as she possibly could for her wedding!

We created a beautifully vibrant bridal bouquet with bright yellow cala lilies and hot pink roses and the adorable bridemaids had bright pink gerbera bouquetstied with long lime green satin ribbons, all the buttonholes and corsages were made up with sunflower yellow gerberas.

The tables were dressed with very tall flower arrangements filled with lemons and limes sitting in pink water and topped with some fabulous colourful and tropical floral displays and we decorated the chairs with lime sashes and hot pink gerberas which certainly added that party atmosphere to the already beautifully decorated reception.

Mini cava bottles tied with hot pink and lime ribbons, adorned the tables as favours and we designed the table stationery to compliment the colour scheme tying large tags with the table seating plans to jugs of sangria at the cocktail.

Our other details for Susan and Sean's wedding day also included fuschia fans at the church and our famous romantic lanterns and candles for the evening surrounding the pool and the reception area

This was a fabulous wedding and one of our favourites this year but herein lies a lesson to be learnt that never travel to your wedding day here in Spain in July in a non air conditioned car, thanks to Kathryn, Susan's make up and hair stayed put, but in plus 40 degrees without air con and a 30 minute journey to the church I am sure Susan was cursing Sean for bringing one of his vintage cars down to Spain!!!! 

This wedding was organised by the lovely Joan and our thanks to Jeremy yet again for these fabulous photos of our flowers and decorations.
