A Gorgeous Christmas Wedding Photo Shoot from Ireland









 

Here at Reviva we are getting into a very festive mood and are in love with this gorgeous Christmas photo shoot organised and styled by one of my previous and all time favourite brides :)
 
Claire tied the knot with her gorgeous hubby here in Marbella in 2010 and I was delighted to be hired as her wedding stylist, florist and decorator, we have since become good friends and Claire left Marbella well and truly hooked on wedding world. 
 
 Upon Claire´s return to Ireland, as a happily married woman, she set about spending a year training to become a fully qualified wedding planner setting up her dream business, a fabulous wedding and styling company White Sage Events.
 
With Claire´s attention to details combined with her natural flair for style she really was suited to becoming a wonderful wedding planner and I have enjoyed watching her flourish as she has worked tirelessly to set up her successful business and is now reaping the rewards of working for herself and you can see she is totally devoted to her profession.
 
Do head over to Claire´s website to have a look at her fabulous work.
 
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing this Christmassy photo shoot Claire´s company recently put together, it is so festive and beautifully styled, the deep berry Christmas reds combined with the soft greys are a perfect winter wedding palette.  Claire´s attention to detail will ensure you have a wonderful wedding and this photo shoot just reinforces her wonderful sense of style.
 
We absolutely love it and are rather jealous we do not get many winter style weddings as there are so many wonderful decoration opportunities, but here in Spain all our brides wish to get married in the wonderful Mediterranean sunshine and who can blame them as Spain is known for it´s wonderful climate.
 
However with the exciting opening of the Marbella Club´s latest venture in the Sierra Nevada, the El Lodge Ski and Spa we are holding out hope now that we may indeed get some beautiful snowy winter style weddings to design, plan and host :) 
 
Imagine hosting your wedding in a wonderfully festive and snowy ski resort near Granada and bringing your guests down to the coast with a 2 hour drive for a beach party the next day!  How different would this be :)
 
I have done it, skiing all through the day and sitting in Marbella on the beach in my ski wear in the sunshine enjoying a cocktail in the evening, there are not many countries in the world where you can do this!
