A Beautiful Elegant Wedding at the Alfonso XIII Seville by Reviva

A splash of gold glitter mixed with a dark navy and fabulous red and pink florals was the theme for our beautifully stylish wedding at the luxury Alfonso XIII hotel in Seville for the wedding of Kellie and Marcos at the end of September this year.

I so love Seville and it´s fabulous architecture so you can imagine our delight when Kellie asked us to help her plan, coordinate and style her wedding.

Kellie and Marcos had already booked the Alfonso XIII but needed help with everything else from sending out electronic Save the Dates to organising all the travel logistics of their guests coming from the US and to liaise with the hotel on her behalf to make sure every eventuality was covered.  

We worked on the beautiful colour scheme and added in a few details to personalise their day from the guest name cards set in corks to the elegant red and pink florals.

We managed to sneak in a bit of gold glitter using gold glitter hearts to adorn signs and gold glitter candles on each table finished with elegant table names set into gold frames.

The beautiful cake was created by Sweet Things by Fi and set onto a table sprinkled with glitter gold hearts, gold candles and finished with a navy satin ribbon.

When I arrived in Seville the night before I was greeted with lightening and torrential rains, but knew that Kellie had planned her entire wedding around the hotel and we were indoors so the weather was not a huge factor.  The skies did clear though allowing Kellie and Marcos to hold their ceremony outside on the terrace and the dinner was hosted in the decadent ballroom under the exquisite chandeliers.

There was a celebratory feel to the air as the girls got ready and were transformed by Lorraine at Princess Bride and we loved Kellie´s dress and red shoes contrasted with the girls deep navy dresses.

Although many people regard Spain as a coastal beach style destination we delight in travelling around Spain to host very different cultural weddings embracing all that Andalucia and Spain has to offer, from it´s exquisite food to it´s vibrant culture and historical architecture.

The wedding of Kellie and Marcos did just this as they invited their guests from the US and beyond to celebrate their marriage in a beautiful city sharing a very special occasion with their family and friends from afar.

My thanks to our fabulous team, headed by Carla, for organising and planning this wedding to perfection and to Sue and Alberto at Saro Callister Photography for sending us these fabulous photos of Kellie and Marcos´s beautifully elegant wedding.

Finally of course our biggest congratulations to Kellie and Marcos.
