Nothing says Summer in Spain such as a bright fuchsia colour scheme for a wedding.
Fuchsia is perfect for a bright sunny outdoor Mediterranean wedding theme and reflects the colours of the local surrounding flowers from the brightly coloured bouganvilla to the vibrant hibiscus.
The original colour scheme we were creating with Alice as we designed her wedding was a deep crimson red, but this changed after the bridesmaids dresses were chosen. When you see the photos you will know why!
One of my favorite colours combos is the red and hot pinks, this can look truly stunning, we sneaked some reds into Alice's wedding with the hearts :)
This wedding was set in the glorious Ritz Carlton Villa Padierna Hotel and with so many details packed into one day we could not wait to share this wedding with you.
(Photo nagger again I am afraid!)
On a magical September evening, Alice made her way down the aisle with her mother and our bride and groom had a beautiful ceremony in the Amphitheatre of this regal hotel, under a stunning gazebo. We dressed the gazebo with a host of gorgeous flowers in various shades of pinks using star gazers, roses, and some huge, fat pale pink hydrangeas which were to die for. The aisle was dressed with glittering white tulles and floral pew ends and hot pink petals were scattered down the aisle.
We created personalised white fans with deep pink ribbons and ivory paper rose details to keep the guests cool and commandered two nice ushers to hand over the confetti bombs to! :)
Alice had a fuchsia rose handtie for her bouquet which complimented beautifully with her bridesmaids who had dolce vita rose handties. The buttonholes were also a single dolce vita rose which is a durable rose and quite large, surviving the spanish heat well and rarely wilts after hours in heat.
The elegant reception was set out on the Linares Terrace.
We dressed the chairs with white satin loose style covers and fuchsia sashes, the napkins were tied with beautiful satin pink ribbon and decorated with an ivory paper rose. The details were stunning and just enough to set off the crisp white tables. We had some gorgeous red hearts in our shop that Alice fell in love with, so we bought these to decorate the surrounding trees at the reception.
The centrepieces were our romantic hurricane style glassware surrounded with a flurry of white hydrangeas and dolce vita roses, set on mirrors with surrounding tealights, simple but luxuriously divine.
As the evening fell onto this fabulous reception we had added some more lanterns and candles onto the terrace, using luminieres, hanging lanterns, large wax cylinder candles in groups and fairy lights to add a truly romantic glow to the night.
Mark from Cake Marbella casually wandered past us yet again setting up his gorgeous chocolate cupcakes, and yet again had not bought spares! It is pure torture as they are by far the best cupcakes in the world but we move on!
Our thanks to Heather at Fiestasol, who had recommended us to Alice and planned this wedding to perfection, again a huge hug to Jeremy and Jenny for these wonderful photos, and another huge hug to the beautiful Alice, a fabulously happy and radiant bride.
We were delighted to share Alice's beautiful day and when Heather told us Alice was desperate to have one of our red hearts as mementoe, we jumped at the chance to send her one as it is so lovely to present our brides with such special memories of their weddings.
