There are many beautiful venues in Marbella and we are fortunate to have worked in almost all of them during our 11 years of creating weddings.

This venue, however, was on my wedding bucket list, I have visited it many times, at first when it was called Silks, and then finally it was taken over by the Trocadero Group who have created such a unique space.

Think of laid-back colonial style with a safari theme, dark woods, beautiful furnishings, cosy corners for the winter with log fires and a stunning setting on the beach surrounded by palm trees.

Earlier this year I was contacted by Paul and Joy, an utterly charming couple looking to host their wedding in Spain with their family and a couple of close friends.

Paul and Joy had already booked a stunning villa in Ronda for the week of their wedding but were set on a beach blessing and then wanted to head up to the hills for a Mamma Mia style dinner party with plenty of good food and wines at their villa.

After we met for a coffee, they were sold and so was I!

During our meeting I suggested a few beach venues that I thought would fit their criteria perfectly.  They took down the details and directions and spent the rest of their holiday having a nosey, some lovely laid back beach lunches and checking out my suggestions!

Pierre Richardson Photography

August 4th, 2013 Posted by Beach Weddings, Beach Weddings in Marbella, Romantic Ideas, Trash the Dress, Weddding Photographers in Spain, Wedding Suppliers on the Costa Del Sol 0 thoughts on “Pierre Richardson Photography”
We recently had the pleasure of working with Pierre Richardson Photography
in June at one of our weddings.  

Pierre´s photo journalistic style combined with an eye for art produces some beautiful images that have earned him recognition within the wedding industry and have been featured in many publications and magazines.

I love being able to see what inspires people, particularly anyone in the art industry and Pierre´s inspiration and soul is beach, I can spot this a mile away as it is also mine!

The fact he lives in Tarifa as well is a dead give away and any of his clients that book Pierre for their wedding will also have the opportunity to visit Tarifa, near his fabulous home, for an hour´s beach shoot complimentary with his full wedding photography package.

With all the latest hype on the trash the dress shoots I could not think of a more perfect setting than on the white beaches of Tarifa, with the backdrop of the African continent, for a more romantic place to trash that dress!

To find out more about Pierre Richardson do pop over to his website or his Facebook page and we hope we will see more of Pierre on our blog with some amazing trash that dress photos!

A Sophisticated Wedding at La Cabane, Los Monteros, Marbella

October 11th, 2011 Posted by Beach Weddings, Crystal Weddings, Lanterns and Candles, Our Weddings, Styling Weddings, Venues, Weddding Photographers in Spain, Wedding Cakes 0 thoughts on “A Sophisticated Wedding at La Cabane, Los Monteros, Marbella”


The stunning setting at La Cabane Beach Club in Los Monteros hotel is one of our favourite venues here in Marbella, it never fails to have that wow factor.

We were delighted when Lauren contacted us to help her plan, design and create her wedding for early September.

Lauren wanted a midsummer garden theme but kept very elegant and fresh, without any rustic influences, she is a huge fan of less is more and wanted everything beautifully dressed from the chairs to the tables.

As Lauren lives here in Marbella, we started at the beginning, creating Save the Dates, followed by mailing out the invitations, designed and crafted by Anoulka.

We kept the wedding design simple and elegant using white and silver styling with a touch of blues, sage greens and a dash of crystal.

The chairs were dressed in our loose style white satin covers finished off with silver satin sashes. We included some beach elements into the day including a charming sand ceremony and the stunning wedding cake with silver shells and starfish designed by Fi.

Lauren´s bridal flowers were kept to whites with a touch of crystal and we used stunning silver candelabras for the tables dressed with blue hydrangeas, white roses and orchids.

Adding in our famous twinkle with pool candles, lanterns and fairy lights, the final effect was stunning and complimented the beach club perfectly.

Our thanks to all our wonderful suppliers that helped us create such a perfect day, including Andreas Holms for these stunning photographs, to Fi, the wonderful cake designer, to Carla for organising such a fabulous wedding and to us for our lovely decorations!

Reviva Rock!

What can I say about this wedding, it was beautiful, understated, utterly charming and stylish and for me certainly one of our favorite weddings this year, definitely a Reviva Wedding!

I think these photos certainly portray how beautiful this wedding was and always I am indebited to Jeremy for allowing me to publish these beautiful photographs and share them with you. It was actually quite a story as to how this wedding came into fruition which I would like to share with you.

Natalie´s parents had already booked Los Monteros as a venue for their daughter´s wedding to Scott, but realised that they needed help, they had the venue but nothing else.
They voiced this concern to James at The Arte Cafe in Elviria, so James immediately pointed to me and Anoulka who were sitting across the square enjoying a quiet cocktail after a busy day at a wedding.
Natalie´s parents came to join us and we chatted weddings, showed them our work and portfolios and a long story but having had out chat we were immediately booked to oversee and manage the rest of this fabulous day and put together the jigsaw puzzle for them.

We then quickly rang around and enlisted our A team, who amazingly were all available in the middle of June, and the rest was history.
I have to say this particular wedding for me was what the A team and Reviva are all about.
It was stylish, beautifully put together with some very special personal details. Natalie had a necklace made for her wedding with a gorgeous silver sea shell theme detail so we continued this into the overall wedding design with a very understated look by adding in tiny silver starfish to decorate the wedding fans to incorporating silver seashells into the centrepieces.
We decorated the event with pale pink peonies and lilies set around hurricane lanterns, created the bridal bouquets in pink dreamy peonies with silver details, scattered the tables with tiny silver shells, Anoulka designed wedding stationery using a pale pink and silver theme with small pearl and silver starfish details, the whole look was subtle, dreamy and divine for a beach side setting at the stunning setting of La Cabane Beach Club.

We organised Natalie´s hair and make up with the fabulous Kathryn Parr, Photography of course with Jeremy, the photographer god 😉 Rob the DJ and the divine sea shell cake from Sweet Things by Fi.

We were thrilled with the results and Carla´s careful attention to details overseeing this wedding left no stone unturned and I love this photo of Carla, our head of planning, at the end showing her true dedication to the day, a very serene photo of our hugely organised planner!

Here is our testimonial from Natalie and Scott

Thank you Carla and the team at Reviva Weddings, I could not have organised my dream wedding in Spain without you! I only had to travel to Spain once to meet with the suppliers and Carla organised and managed the rest of the process on my behalf. A few emails went back and forth and when I arrived a week before the wedding it was all organised. Carla was with me from start to finish and offered help and advice in all areas. I really do feel we had the best Marbella had to offer, from Jeremy Standley the photographer, to Fiona and the cake, the standard was outstanding.

My wedding day was everything I wanted and went without a hitch, Carla was even there when the last person went home! I want to thank you all for for your hard work and effort to make my wedding day the most special day of my life.
