Flamenco in Seville Featured on Junebug Weddings

Today we are yet again squeaking with delight to have one of our favourite 2012 weddings featured on Junebug Weddings.


It is lovely to be transported back to the summer of 2012 and the wonderful Mediterranean hot sunny days and revisit the wedding we created for Charles and Victoria in the beautiful city of Seville.


Victoria and Charles were a delightfully charming couple from London who contacted us at the beginning of 2012 and booked us as their planner and wedding stylist.  When they contacted us they had already booked a venue in Seville and so the planning started but as the wedding drew closer it became apparent this venue could not afford to open it´s doors so three months before the wedding Carla made an emergency dash to Seville to meet with Charles and Victoria with a shortlist of five venues to choose from and El Esparragal was chosen.  I was delighted as I preferred this venue and so the fun bit began.


Victoria and Charles were so up for an Andalusian theme, they had beautiful moving olive oil ceremony followed by a fabulous Sevillian dancing horse flamenco show to entertain their guests during the cocktail.


We styled the wedding using the famous Osborne Spanish Black Bull, the unofficial national symbol of Spain, and combined this design with a heavy influence of flamenco and  Andalusian passion.  From the red and black polka dot fans to the gorgeous red roses, Anoulka´s fabulous stationery we designed, including the black bull wine glass place cards, the bull style table numbers, our Feria style message poster and the beautiful Order of Service fans with a vintage lace detail beautifully set off this unique wedding style.


We loved styling the chill out, albeit I never realised how heavy haystacks were and Izzi was still picking bits of hay out her legs the next day!


I have to admit it was HOT, I don´t think I have ever drunk so many waters in my life! Heaven knows how Carla and Paloma managed to put their black jackets on ready for the evening to oversee the party.  Such an amazing weekend for everyone involved including us, we so enjoyed it and have so many lovely memories.

Our thanks to Anna Gazda for such gorgeous photos and documenting such a fabulous day.
