I am not sure where to begin to be honest, it is difficult sometimes to describe the emotions we have when we are designing, planning and organising our weddings, but Vee and Charlie´s wedding I think sums it up for me.
I have been feeling slightly tearful tonight as I load up our gorgeous photos of this fantastic and stylish wedding we planned and designed in El Esparragal in Seville as I have such lovely memories of creating such a fantastic weekend.
I understand the journey sometimes it takes to get to a day like this and for some it is quite a journey, Vee and Charlie are no exception and such a wonderful couple that we fell in love with instantly, they are so perfectly suited and we were delighted to share their very special wedding day.
Did we love it, yes we did!
There were so many details, Carla was brilliant and amazing as usual, as until the beginning of this year the whole wedding was planned at a completely different venue.
The original venue, I guess due to the recession decided not to reopen in April which was rather sad, so a complete rethink, searching for a new venue and another flying visit with Vee and Charlie resulted in hosting their gorgeous wedding at El Esparragal.
I have to admit I personally was rather pleased as it was a much nicer venue so hats off to Carla :)
We had such fun designing and creating this wedding, there were so many lovely details. The Sevillian theme was fun and Victoria and Charles were so up for it, really we had a free reign.
Anoulka and I were off on design mode, with Anoulka creating some fabulous stationery, the fan shaped order of service and fan table seating plan that we placed on a small tree, our Andalucian black bulls as place cards and table names. We had miniature Osborne Sherries with the black bull on as favours.
Red, white and black polka dot fans, red rice butterfly confetti mixed with red rose petals and gorgeous red rose and ivory rose bouquets with a red rose buttonhole for Charlie and ivory for the rest of the men.
The Sevillian theme was not complete without the elegant Andalucian dancing horse with the flamenco dancer during the cocktail, it was amazing and bought us all to a standstill. I know a few of the girls were tearful, Izzi and Paloma!
The evening kicked off with style thanks to Rob Rocks the House as the DJ, Fi from Sweet Things By Fi providing the very yummy and die for cakes, our silver, white and red chill out created with hay bales provided by the venue, our fancy dressing up box along with Anna´s photo booth and last but not least our famous twinkly lights and lanterns!
A fantastic weekend for everyone involved, Carla and Paloma worked hard all weekend to host the pre wedding reception at the EME in Seville and I had decided to stay close to Seville for 2 nights and chosen the beautiful town of Carmona to hang out in which is truly amazing and is host to a stunning Parador.
All I can say about the whole weekend was it was a wonderful, happy and charming experience and one to be repeated, albeit slightly hot! 45 degrees in the shade ;)!
