Rocking in Toledo

As far as weddings go this wedding was fabulously fun, we rocked the bustling city of Toledo as Debs and John bought their family and friends all the way from Australia to Spain to celebrate their wedding.  

We loved our gorgeous bride and groom in sneakers and there were so many delicious treats for their guests who had travelled from far afield to join them on their fabulous Spanish adventure.

Debs contacted me last May to help her create her dream rock and roll style wedding here in Spain and wanted to host her special day in the Madrid or Toledo area as John's family are based there, so with the help of the super efficient Carmen we narrowed down the most enchanting venue, the Hacienda Del Cardenal, situated right in the heart of Toledo's historical city centre.

All our planning and styling was done on email and Facebook and Debs quickly became a friend as well so we chatted details, exchanged ideas, and narrowed down suppliers, mostly at night for me as Debs seemed to wake up just as I was going to bed!!

Eventually the big day arrived and a few days beforehand I drove up to Toledo loaded up with ribbons, glitter pom pom balls as confetti, wine crates, grapes and some fabulous props and signs and joined Carmen in Toledo to create the most fantastic wedding day for Debs and John.

I am not sure where to start from the details and treats for the wedding guests, from beautiful artisan chocolate and nuts lollipops bought from Madrid by Carmen to the olive bar, lemonade bar, mint choc chip cupcakes, gin cocktails, flamenco guitar and show, photo booth, the list of treats and goodies was endless and such fun!

We loved the tiny details such as the cartoon ring cushion, lego cake topper, wine themed table seating plan beautifully created by Carmen styled with barrels, wine crates and grapes incorporated into the table centrepieces with the table numbers and placecards set into corks.

It is a weekend I will always remember for being such fun and I am delighted to have shared such a special time with Debs and John as they celebrated their wedding here in our beautiful country.  

As I type this blog post they are currently on their way back to Australia having spent the best part of three months here travelling around Spain and Europe, we wish Debs and John safe travels, a happy marriage and cannot wait to see their new home which they are moving into once they arrive back in Australia.

My thanks goes to Carmen, who worked with me to organise such a beautiful wedding, the venue for being so friendly, helpful and efficient, particularly the waiter who kept feeding me during my stay with some lovely canapes, to Miriam at Kiss and Chips for these fabulous photos we are able to share with you and all the other suppliers who were involved.
