Moroccan Inspired Wedding Decorations

This morning I fell upon a fabulous blog called Bridal Musings which you must head over to take a look at, gorgeous weddings and inspirations.

Being established in the South of Spain many of our weddings have a slight element of Moroccan styling and we love the ideas on here using my favorite Moroccan colour combos.

For more information on these inspiration boards head over to Bridal Musings, I guarantee you will be there for a while!

A Beautiful Villa Wedding in Marbella

We are loving these photos of one of our weddings last week in a private villa near San Pedro.

Our thanks to a super speedy Anna, the photographer, for sharing these photos with us so quickly!

Nicola was one of our creative brides that had worked hard to put together so many details before her wedding day and it was all beautifully done, from the table names set in white antique frames for each guest to the gorgeous decorations Nikki had created to decorate the venue and villa. We worked with Nikki to turn the gardens and pool area into a magical, twinkling romantic garden, provided parasols and waved our magic wand to sprinkle petals over the ceremony area :)

Nikki had bought in her own bouquets, aisle dressings and details to complete her perfect day and we were delighted to work with her to fill in the gaps that were completely impossible to fit in her suitcase!

We are thrilled to share these photos with you of one of our villa weddings and thanks to Heather and her team at Fiestasol this was a fantastically run and caterered for day.

Our big thanks of course to Anna for sharing these delightful photos with us.

A Princess and her Castle

Whilst this is not one of our weddings, this fabulously stunning image was sent to me the other day to cheer me by Jeremy, so just had to share this with you, isn´t it just divinely romantic :)
Jeremy sent it with the title A Princess and her Castle which really just sums this up beautifully. Thank you for cheering me up when I was in Ikea car park!
I do think we really do love weddings!

Mediterranean Wedding Colours at Hacienda San Jose in Mijas

Louise and Adam contacted us last year to help them organise their wedding here in Spain.

After our first meeting with Louise and her parents, we were hired and Louise fell in love with the gorgeous Hacienda San Jose
for her wedding venue.

Louise looked stunning and we personally were completely smitten with the lovely little bridesmaids :) They were all beautifully behaved and loved being part of this intimate family wedding. It was a hugely fun and relaxed day for all involved.

I personally love the photo of Louise´s parents, it sums up for me the emotions at weddings which are always lovely and make people connect in a way they would never do at another event.

The colour scheme for this wedding was chosen by Louise with a stunning combination of bright pinks and turquoise and being a very hands on bride, had raided Ikea to create the centrepieces, we are still wondering what she did with all those candles!

Our thanks to Heather and her wonderful team at Fiestasol for the fantastic catering, I have to mention I went to the food tasting and it was divine, and to Jennifer Jane Photography for allowing us to share these images with you.

Here is our lovely testimonial from Louise

Dear Carla and Laura

My apologies for not getting in touch sooner to thank you for making our wedding day so special.

I really appreciate the hard work that goes into organising such an event.

The venue looked stunning and certainly impressed all our guests.

It was an amazing day that I will cherish forever and thanks to you guys for making my dreams come true. Carla having you there on the day was such a relief knowing you had everything under control, you are a true professional.

It has been a real pleasure knowing you and working with you both this past year. Good luck with all your future endeavours, you are both amazing at what you do.

Gorgeous Ice Blue and Pale Coral Wedding at Finca de la Concepcion, Marbella

We were delighted when Chris contacted us to help him design and style his wedding to Faye.

Chris is a designer so was very involved in creating just how he saw his wedding day and to make it even more special Chris and Faye were childhood sweethearts, so we were hopelessly in love with this couple as well and very keen to make sure everything of course, as always, was perfectly styled for them to enjoy their day.

Using a vintage ice blue and pale coral combination, we worked with Lynn as well, Faye´s mother, to create all the beautiful, thoughtful details for the wedding day.

Guests place names were set in tiny silver frames doubling up as wedding favours and pale coral gift bags were on every seat to put trinkets, cakes and gifts in, including the very stylish monogrammed napkins and our beautifully decorated fans :)

Loraine designed and created these stunning bridal flowers to match the theme with pearl details and our gorgeous table centrepieces of silver candelabras decorated with fabulous flowers and pearl details completed the look of the day.

We were thrilled at the outcome of this wedding and many of the other suppliers at the wedding still keep telling me it was their favourite of the year as it was so dreamily romantic.

Here is our testimonial from Chris and Faye and also Lynne, Faye´s mother, who we worked very closely with as well leading up to this gorgeous wedding.

Dear Laura
Chris and I wanted to send you and your great team a big thank you before we go off on our honeymoon.

Our wedding day was amazing in every way and every small detail was exactly how both
Chris and I had envisioned (which is amazing considering we are both perfectionists)

This could not have been possible without you, Loraine and Anoulka, who ensured everything was so perfect and beautiful.

It has been such a pleasure to have been able to have worked with you to create our dream day, when I entered the venue it took my breath away, I always dreamed of a beautiful, vintage, romantic wedding day and that is what we got and more.

Right from the beginning Chris and I said we wanted to tell a story and take our guests on a journey, since returning we have had so many messages with comments about how they felt they were truly part of something and I truly feel you helped us creating this beautiful journey.

Thank you and hope we see you next time we are out in Spain-

Dear Laura
I just wanted to thank you for making Chris and Faye´s day so amazing! The sheer beauty of everything you created took my breath away, especially the beautiful flowers.

So many people have commented on the decor, saying they have never seen such uniqueness. All the hard work paid off and it has been a real pleasure dealing with you, exchanging emails, ideas and finishing touches.

A big thank you to Anoulka as I know she contributed to a big part of the creativity!

Thank you so much for all that you did to make the day so memorable, it was all that Chris and Faye wanted and more.
Kindest Wishes

We would like to thank Jeremy Standley for allowing us to share these beautiful photos of a very romantic day with you.
