A comment from one of my lovely travel writer friends this Christmas holiday really made me sit up.

He said he was off to check out my blog for some Christmas inspiration and I was really surprised when he said my decor and ideas inspired him.  I did not realise I had an avid following searching for design and style tips! (more…)

Everyone keeps telling us business owners we have to shout out about us, what we are (erh a human!), what we do (plan weddings and make them look amazing!) and our lives! (mine is pretty boring!)

So as I sit here patiently waiting for Santa to arrive before I can go to bed, I have been reflecting on the past week. (more…)

Help to get David Toms back home

I will start with going back to the day I found out about David Toms accident.  Utter shock, horror and could not get this off my mind, even to this day I often find myself thinking about David and wonder how he copes with the life changing accident he suffered, both mentally and physically.

Having broken his neck and now a quadriplegic, this situation challenges our understanding as to how anyone can move on and enjoy some quality of life, but they do.

Some of you may recall the blog post I did about David over a year ago a few months after his terrible accident.

A quick recap, it was about an amazing and inspiring couple, Mary and Marc, I had the pleasure of organising their wedding for.

They had faced a very similar life trauma when Marc also had a life changing car accident, at a much younger age.

Christmas Wedding Inspirations

November 11th, 2014 Posted by Christmas Cakes, Christmas in Malaga, Christmas inspirations, Christmas Weddings, Gorgeous Table Settings, Sweet and treat tables for weddings 0 thoughts on “Christmas Wedding Inspirations”

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!

Christmas In Malaga

This might sound dreadful but in all the years I have lived here I have never visited Malaga.  Usually I have been flying past the city either on route to the airport or to a wedding and have never been a tourist.
 
  We have hosted many weddings in Malaga at some gorgeous venues, including the Castillo de Santa Catalina, which has involved me whizzing through the very hot city centre in the summer at an alarming speed with ribbons, confetti and flowers streaming behind me 🙂 
 
We are also very much looking forward to planning and designing a fabulous 2 day wedding in Malaga this coming summer which is very exciting.
 
This week, however, I had the luxury of finally being a tourist embarking on a festive  pre Christmas day out with my good friend Loraine who runs Dream Weddings in Spain and our fabulous tour guide Kris McGuirk who incidently is a wonderful wedding photographer by day!  You can see we mix business with pleasure! 
 
I am fortunate to have met so many amazing people through my business who have since become good friends. 
 
What can I say, what a wonderful city Malaga is and I was completely spoilt with two fantastic hosts prepared to show me the sights, lights and tapas bars in Malaga´s city centre.
 
Loraine and I started off by hitting the Larios Shopping Centre and it was a big highlight to visit Primark, aren´t they fab for cosy socks and pj´s plus kids things!!  I had heard about this store but never visited one so was rather overawed by how busy it was!
 
After clutching a few too many shopping bags, full of cosy socks and glittery pink ugg boots for Twinks, Loraine and I then drove into the main city centre to be greeted by Kris, the hostess with the mostess!   
 
Kris then proceeded to whisk us off to many tapas bars with lots of copas de vino involved and the odd break to do a bit of sightseeing, it was amazing, there was so much to see. 
 
Kris truly won the tour guide award dragging us very reluctantly into gorgeous tapas bars and Moroccan tea shops and then proceeded to show us some fascinating cathedrals, churches, the brotherhoods displaying their Christmas nativity scenes along with the stunning processional floats they use at Easter and of course the Calle Larios for some festive Christmas lights, they were beautiful and the street was lined with entertainers and street vendors just like Barcelona. 
 
The day went far too quickly and we ended up at the top of the Marriot hotel on the roof terrace enjoying a very civilised vodka and tonic whilst admiring the rooftops of Malaga, the port with a cruise ship in and being startled by the occasional random firework being set off!
 
What can I say apart from I had such a wonderful day.  I now realise I need to go back to Malaga many times to see all the sights and more of this city and it´s history and do need of course to visit a few more of the wonderful tapas bars!
 
Tonight though I would like to express my deepest sadness at the horrific tragedy that has unfolded in the US, I have cried at the loss of so many innocent victims, it beggars belief to be honest and we send our thoughts and prayers to everyone who is suffering.
