Intimate Wedding La Virginia, Marbella








What can I say, but we love weddings and there is nothing more alarming and challenging than being sent a table seating plan for over 100 people at 1am in the night before a wedding to design, create and print read for the morning :)

But once a bride is forgiven and has since become a fabulous wedding planner and a good friend and even sent me creme eggs to win forgiveness 3 years later, you can imagine my delight when the aforementioned bestest bride recommended us to one of her family members to help them plan and decorate their gorgeous intimate wedding here in Marbella.  

We were delighted when Emma Jane and Paraic hired us and loved planning and creating their special day here at the stunning La Virginia church this week followed by a wedding reception dinner at the La Virginia restaurant.

We thought we would share some of the pretty details we created for Emma Jane.  
Our brief was she was wearing a vintage lace style dress and her sister who was the bridesmaid would be wearing champagne.

Combined with the stunningly beautiful setting of La Virginia we created a simple but elegant style and I incorporated a bit of colour into the menus using a bougainvillea design as the venue and its surroundings are covered in this beautifully Mediterranean flower.

The tables were dressed with tea coloured vintage Spanish lace table runners and we used the altar arrangement from the church for the dining table combined with two smaller floral arrangements and surrounded them with silver mercury tealights.

We provided blush coloured napkins tied with champagne satin ribbons to set off the table and insert the bougainvillea menus into.

The end result was beautiful and we are delighted to share these images with you from Pierre Richardson photography.

Our congratulations to Emma Jane and Paraic on such a special day.

Our congratulations as well to Claire and Jonathan as they are expecting their first child.

I was told a wedding stylist is for life recently by Chris and Faye, one of our 2011 bestest couples, as I was set the task of shopping for cots in Ikea and again it appears this applies!  Just wondering if Claire is going to email me asking for cots shortly, just hoping it will not be at 1am at night :)

If you wish to see Claire´s beautiful website and hire one of the best wedding planners in Ireland do hop over to White Sage Events.  Claire now has table seating plans down to a fine art!

Lovely use of color! Stylish and sweet at the same time. (And love that 'back story' about the seating plan 3 years ago...that's excellent service that leads to friendship!)
