We loved this wedding, it was stunning and the guests outfits were amazing, every attention to detail was not left unturned from the stylish fascinators and hats to the gorgeous die for shoes and handbags, it was divine.
This wedding, for us, was quite a late booking that came in through Moira at Perfect Spanish Weddings. We had not met Moira before but she contacted us as her client wanted to use us which was extremely flattering. We were available as it was a date in October thank goodness as I would have hated to have turned down this amazing wedding.
The wedding was a church ceremony held at the Santo Cristo de Calvario in Marbella, which is quite a retro style seventies church and has a wonderful bilingual priest.
We created a gorgeous lemon rose teardrop bridal bouquet and the bridesmaids had ivory rose handties with crystal details, the buttonholes were made with lemon roses and white orchids. We decorated the church with crystal organza pew ends, lay down an aisle runner supplied by the client and provided two large pedestal arrangements for the altar.
The reception was at the fabulous Villa Padierna hotel and the theme was a lemon and crystal colour scheme as Martina's dress was covered in AB Swarvoski crystals, it was stunning and very elegant.
Martina wanted tall candelabras for her wedding and it was a large wedding of 20 tables so we had some ivory iron candelabras made up for us by a charming iron maker in the poligono in Marbella. I will be back there as he has some wonderful props and furniture so my mind was full of ideas!
The cocktail area was decorated with white and lemon balloons created by my wonderful balloon lady who I will be working with a lot more next year as she has some fabulous decorations, a creative mind and a style I like.
We covered the chairs at the hotel with our loose style white satin chair covers and decorated these with crystal lemon sashes, decorated the tables with the tall candelabras completely adorned with floral arrangements and candles and scattered the tables with crystals and tealights. The head table was decorated with a beautiful long arrangement of flowers, candles and swags made with ivy and crystal lemon bows.
I have to at this point thank my team this day, Anoulka and Izzi, who both worked incredibly hard as we were one person down.
We started the night before as it was a large wedding of 200 people and we worked into the night to get the chairs dressed. We then came back the next day with Loraine and Maureen to finish off the tables and create the arrangements on site. The final effect was incredible, I kept looking back when we had finally finished and the wedding by then was well underway, to take in the transformation we had done on this room. It was one of those moments where I thought wow!!
Moira was charming, we got on like a house on fire and are working together a lot next year which I am hugely excited about. Our thanks to Moira, to Helen and Joey for letting us decorate their daughter's wedding, and to Jenni for providing us with these gorgeous photos.
