Awesome Wedding Weekend but with a Tale

Here at Reviva we have just completed an awesome weekend for some of our clients but with a tale involved.

We thought we would share this with you as there are times when weddings can take over peoples lives and whilst we understand you are hosting the biggest day of your life sadly there are occasions that can dramatically change the best planned weddings in the world and we have just finished a wedding in which exactly this happened to our lovely bride and groom.

A few months ago their best man and usher were horrifically attacked whilst picking up their suits for the wedding rendering both of them critically ill in hospital.   

Life and wedding plans halted as our couple spent many evenings with their best friends in hospital and we were instructed to just carry on with everything ready for their big day.  

This was never going to be easy for anyone but we continued to organise and design their wedding as they did not wish to delay or cancel it as they had friends and family travelling from all over the world including Australia.

Thankfully one friend recovered enough to attend their wedding which made it very special but very sadly the other is still very ill in hospital.

A lot of thought was given as to how to manage their special day and it was decided at the last minute to have the wedding videoed too so they can share this with their friend, a big thank you to Gary Tapp who came up trumps at very short notice and sent his assistant Rebecca and joined her later to capture some very special moments on video to share with their friend.

Life can change at any time and here as wedding planners we will pull out all the stops beyond and above duty to help in any way we can and it has been an amazing weekend working with some of our fabulous suppliers who, like us, go beyond what is expected of them because they love what they do. 

We have just had a ball and the most awesome weekend with our lovely couple, a fabulous wedding in the beautifully stylish polo grounds at Sotogrande working with the most wonderful Justo, Rob and their team, followed by a very cool beach party this afternoon at Chambao which I have no doubt is still going judging from the wedding day! 

It has been an emotional weekend and Isabel worked very hard to make sure everything went smoothly for our delightful couple. 

We have saved mementos from the wedding including candy from the candy bar and cake for our couple to take back to their friend, awesome photos coming soon from Andreas Holm and from the very cool photo booth!

After our clients beach party today we met with one of our other couples from a few years ago to be introduced to their delightful new addition to their family.  Our congratulations to Katie and Scott on the arrival a few months ago of the delightful Joseph, he was so cute and fluffy!   I fear I maybe cot buying again, as a wedding planner is for life according to many of our delightful couples!

Do take time out during your wedding day to sit back and watch your family and friends, life is taken for granted but can change at anytime so whilst you maybe fretting over your favours and ribbon colours, appreciate the people who have been able to share your day with you and make the effort to speak with everyone, you never know what is round the corner.
