Having posted about what we are seeing as one of the latest fashions for weddings we thought we would work up the marble theme a bit more. This helps us as we get our creative hats on to look at styles, colours and designs for our weddings.

I created this inspiration board this evening from Pinterest to look at this style in detail.

For me marbles are quite a cold medium to work with.


A Beautiful Elegant Wedding at the Alfonso XIII Seville by Reviva

December 7th, 2013 Posted by City Weddings in Spain, Cultural Weddings in Spain, Styling Weddings in Spain, Stylish Weddings in Spain, Wedding Planning service, Weddings in Seville 0 thoughts on “A Beautiful Elegant Wedding at the Alfonso XIII Seville by Reviva”
A splash of gold glitter mixed with a dark navy and fabulous red and pink florals was the theme for our beautifully stylish wedding at the luxury Alfonso XIII hotel in Seville for the wedding of Kellie and Marcos at the end of September this year.
I so love Seville and it´s fabulous architecture so you can imagine our delight when Kellie asked us to help her plan, coordinate and style her wedding.

Kellie and Marcos had already booked the Alfonso XIII but needed help with everything else from sending out electronic Save the Dates to organising all the travel logistics of their guests coming from the US and to liaise with the hotel on her behalf to make sure every eventuality was covered.  

We worked on the beautiful colour scheme and added in a few details to personalise their day from the guest name cards set in corks to the elegant red and pink florals.

We managed to sneak in a bit of gold glitter using gold glitter hearts to adorn signs and gold glitter candles on each table finished with elegant table names set into gold frames.

The beautiful cake was created by Sweet Things by Fi and set onto a table sprinkled with glitter gold hearts, gold candles and finished with a navy satin ribbon.

When I arrived in Seville the night before I was greeted with lightening and torrential rains, but knew that Kellie had planned her entire wedding around the hotel and we were indoors so the weather was not a huge factor.  The skies did clear though allowing Kellie and Marcos to hold their ceremony outside on the terrace and the dinner was hosted in the decadent ballroom under the exquisite chandeliers.

There was a celebratory feel to the air as the girls got ready and were transformed by Lorraine at Princess Bride and we loved Kellie´s dress and red shoes contrasted with the girls deep navy dresses.

Although many people regard Spain as a coastal beach style destination we delight in travelling around Spain to host very different cultural weddings embracing all that Andalucia and Spain has to offer, from it´s exquisite food to it´s vibrant culture and historical architecture.

The wedding of Kellie and Marcos did just this as they invited their guests from the US and beyond to celebrate their marriage in a beautiful city sharing a very special occasion with their family and friends from afar.
My thanks to our fabulous team, headed by Carla, for organising and planning this wedding to perfection and to Sue and Alberto at Saro Callister Photography for sending us these fabulous photos of Kellie and Marcos´s beautifully elegant wedding.

Finally of course our biggest congratulations to Kellie and Marcos.

A Charming Autumn Wedding in Carmona, Spain

December 1st, 2013 Posted by Cultural Weddings in Spain, Stylish Weddings in Spain, Wedding Planners Spain, Wedding Venues in Spain, Weddings in Spain 0 thoughts on “A Charming Autumn Wedding in Carmona, Spain”

This beautiful wedding of Adeline and Philippe from Paris was set in one of my favourite places in Spain, the charming historical town of Carmona, situated just outside Seville.

I fell in love with Carmona two years ago and seize every opportunity to visit this town.

We are going there in January to celebrate my father´s 80th as he has listened to my stories about this wonderful place and decided this is where he wishes to host his birthday celebrations! 🙂
I am not sure what is special about Carmona or what I can put a finger on, but it oozes Andalucian charm and history with every other building in the town being a historical church, it has a pretty town square and is also the home to a very impressive Parador and equally impressive tapas bars!  The people are friendly and the food is amazing.

White beans with squid are to die for and lamb cutlets served with tiny roast potatoes, 
 I have not had such a nice meal for a long time in Spain.

You can imagine my delight when Adeline and Phillipe contacted us to help them organise their wedding at the Casa de Carmona, a historical XVI building converted into a boutique hotel by Felipe Guardiola.

The ceremony was hosted in the beautiful inner courtyard at the Casa de Carmona and then our wedding party were taken to the stunning Parador in Carmona for the cocktails, sherry and jamon tasting and an icecream cart 🙂

The guests were transported back to the Casa de Carmona on Sevillian horses with carts for a wonderful meal followed by dancing in the Loggia room by the pool.

The setting and town for me was perfect and so far away from the tourist Spain, it was a beautiful wedding for a charming couple and we are delighted we were part of their day.  Our entire team went up to oversee the wedding and had a wonderful time as we were hosted by a very friendly town and the charming locals who were very interested in what we were doing there!

Carla did an amazing job with the planning, Loraine and Maureen transformed the Casa de Carmona with their floristry skills and I oversaw the design and styling of the whole event from the little details to pashminas tied with ribbons to the placecards set out on an antique table and the gorgeous Order of Service booklets.

A fantastic team, a beautiful wedding and very happy clients.
Our thanks to all the wonderful suppliers we worked with and to Joseba Sandoval from Romance Weddings for these fabulous photos we are sharing with you.

An Indian Wedding in Malaga by Reviva Part 1

November 26th, 2013 Posted by Cultural Weddings in Spain, Indian Weddings, Our Weddings, wedding planners Marbella, Wedding Venues in Spain, Weddings in Spain 0 thoughts on “An Indian Wedding in Malaga by Reviva Part 1”
I am not sure where to start with this fabulous two day wedding celebration for the most wonderful and charming couple, Karin and Rishad.

What a ball we had and what fun planning, styling and organising their wedding here in Malaga during the hazy, hot summer month of August.

But let´s start at the torture inflicted on Rishad as love these bits of our weddings! 🙂  

The poor lads had to brush their teeth with Wasabi paste, drink Tabasco infused drinks and have their legs waxed, to name but a few torturous tests the scheming bridesmaids had come up with. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the groom and his male entourage being put to the test with some well thought out games by the not so well meaning bridesmaids to win their brides!!

But we start this two part blog post with the pre wedding celebrations of a wonderful Sangeet and Mendhi evening at the Palacio de Monte Miramar.

Such a fabulously fun evening to start the wedding celebrations.  
Our thanks to Chez Vous for the lighting and chill outs and to the fabulous venue Palacio de Monte Miramar for hosting such a wonderful evening and to the guests for providing such fun dances and entertainment.

Our gorgeous images are courtesy of the famous worldwide photographer Dan Chennergy from Belgium and we will be blogging part two of this wedding very shortly to share with you!  

An Intimate Elopement to Marbella from Singapore

September 27th, 2013 Posted by Cultural Weddings in Spain, Elegant Weddings in Spain, Elopements in Spain, Romantic Weddings in Spain, wedding planners Marbella 0 thoughts on “An Intimate Elopement to Marbella from Singapore”
There is something so idyllic about an elopment and I am sure there are many times as couples plan their weddings and it is becoming stressful working out the guest list, when they wonder why they did not just hot foot it away on their own to a beautiful location.

This is exactly what Darren and Christine decided to do and chose Spain as their destination.

 With it´s rich culture, fabulous cities and a passionate lifestyle combined with great tapas and gorgeous weather, it was the perfect choice for a fun and romantic elopement far flung from Singapore.

What fun this beautiful young couple had and we were delighted that they chose us to help them organise their fairy tale wedding day here in our beautiful country, Spain.

I watched them on Facebook as they documented their travels through Spain from Barcelona down to Madrid, onto Seville and finally down to Marbella.  

I felt the nerves and anticipation as they got ready for their most romantic ceremony at the beautiful Encarnacion Church here in Marbella which has been fabulously documented by Francisco Bononato Rosso.

It was such a romantic occasion, this very much in love couple taking their vows and creating a once in a lifetime occasion that they will always remember in a stunning church, in a different country, declaring their love for each other.

Carla organised their trip here to Marbella and their church ceremony along with booking the fabulous, luxury Villa Tiberio restaurant for a very romantic post wedding initimate dinner.

I of course fell in love with Christine´s shoes, designed the florals to compliment the shoes and frantically went shopping for hand painted fans to match!   We created a floral centrepiece for their evening table which matched Christine´s bouquet as a surprise.

Our warmest congratulations to Darren and Christine and thank you for allowing us to be a part of such a special, intimate day and to Francisco Bononato Rosso for sharing these beautiful images with us.

A Dream Cultural Wedding in Seville, Spain

A picture is worth a thousand words.

At the beginning of June last year Margot and Sergy hired us to help them plan, coordinate and design what was going to be an amazing wedding here in Seville.   

Having already booked the fabulous Hacienda San Rafael and organising to bring guests in  from all over the world, including Hong Kong and London, Margot and Sergy knew they required help with the planning and styling of their day.

 They wished to make sure their guests were well looked after during their stay in Spain and required assistance in organising other events including a bridal shower, a trip to Ronda to see a Jamon Casa combined with a lunch for their guests, a pre wedding dinner as well as their actual wedding day.

After a year of planning and designing, it was a beautiful day as we travelled up to Seville to help Sergy and Margot host their wedding and what an amazing time this was.

We arrived in a whirl of flowers, origami hearts, signs, parasols, lanterns, candles and all the finishing touches to style the wedding day.

What can we say other than we love this wedding, the guests and hosts were absolutely charming and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the pre wedding tea ceremony.  

There were a lot of sneak peeks and dashing around as all the rituals Margot had explained to us were carried out before the actual ceremony.

The day of fun and games started early with Niki, the make up artist arriving at the venue for breakfast to start the hair and make for Margot and her nine bridesmaids including three different changes in outfits as the day progressed.

A most beautiful service was conducted in the late afternoon by the delightful Lizzie Marriage, followed by a wonderful meal set in the olive groves by the pool.

 Rob Rocks the House had the guests on their feet and a fabulous party was had by all.

Fi at Sweet Things By Fi created a beautiful cake on which sat some traditional wooden figures Margot had bought with her which we loved, a mini Margot and Sergy in traditional costume as Margot is from Hong Kong and Sergy is from the Ukraine.

The Hacienda San Rafael is one of my favourite venues, Anthony oozes charm and is the most magnificent host you could ever wish for, Carla is the most amazingly organised wedding planner and combined with our other trusted and wonderful suppliers we created a truly magical day.

As I mentioned before a picture is worth a thousand words and we are delighted to share these stunning images of such a fantastic day from Ramon at El Marco Rojo.

Here is our wonderful thank you from Margot and Sergy for trusting us to create such a fabulous day and we share many lovely memories with them.

Hi Laura,

We are finally back in London, and still daydreaming about our wedding just a few days ago.
We would like to thank you both for doing such an amazing job – we really cannot describe the feeling we had during and after the wedding. It really was the best weekend we have ever had in our lives – so much happiness and joy, and just seeing all our friends and family together. We felt truly blessed.
It could not have happened without your professionalism and expertise. I hope you enjoyed it just as much as we did, I am sure there were quite a few stressful moments but everyone was complimenting on how great you were. I hope it was worthwhile for you too picking us as clients!

Thank you once again.

Sergy & Margot
