Chris and Sam contacted us to help them organise their wedding in Spain as we had previously organised their best friends, Katy and Scott’s wedding in 2010 and came recommended.
We were delighted to meet Katy and Scott again complete with firstly a bump at the beginning of the planning, then later a beautiful little boy! It was so lovely to also meet the now doting grandparents again too and with Katy and Scott as best man and bridesmaid, they were of course on duty for the night!
What a lot of fun Chris and Sam were, they instantly fell in love with the villa set on the lakes in Marbella and loved the fact it was private as music was to play a big part of their wedding and partying outside all night was a must for the club lovers!
Having settled quickly on the venue we started planning what I call the sporran noodle wedding, we wanted to combine both the Scottish for Chris with the Chinese for Sam and the overall theme was of course music.
The catering by Chez Vous combined various different elements of both traditions of food, serving a mix of oriental and Scottish canapes and finishing off the evening with boxes of noodles for midnight snacks.
The decoration and stationery was created with a lot of input from Chris and Sam, using vinyl records as table centrepieces, and Chris had even ordered vinyl record cake stands, which took quite a few of us putting heads together to get them assembled and to stand upright!
Chris organised the favours to bring in the music theme with musical note placecard holders and stubby holders for beers.
The tables were simply decorated with purple and orange flowers in glassware, surrounded by some retro coloured tealight holders we found in Casa with Chris and Sam on a shopping trip.
We finished off the decor with lots of lanterns and candles, hung hearts supplied by Sam from the trees and created the table seating plan, again using the record theme and the tables named after famous nightclubs.
The golden wheelbarrow made it’s appearance filled with ice and bottled beers!
Our thanks to all the wonderful suppliers who were part of Sam and Chris’s special day here in Marbella, Kathryn Parr for Hair and Make Up, Julia at Chez Vous for the catering, Monkey Tennis for the entertainment and of course David Toms for the fabulous photographs.
A huge congratulations to Chris and Sam who were such fun to work with and looking forward to meeting with you all next time you are in Marbella!
It is pouring with rain here this morning in Spain, and very dark, so here I am with coffee, browsing ideas for our fabulous weddings and got slightly sidetracked with beautiful Christmas Wedding Inspirations.
Sadly here in Spain we do not get many Christmas weddings but that does not stop us dreaming of creating and designing them!!
These images are from Green Wedding Shoes and I can imagine this beautiful set up in a dark Spanish stately home or one of Seville’s glorious tapas bars with the dramatic reds and golds, touches of lace, sprigs of berries that could easily be olive sprigs and those dramatic amaryllis. It seemed a shame not to share and do check out the gold oreos!
