As many of our followers know we are not just Wedding Planners with excel spreadsheets, although of course we have these and like to make them look pretty 🙂

With a background in interior design and retail merchandising, I am an experienced wedding stylist and I work with our clients to ensure their imagination is perfectly translated in preparation for their day.  I don’t just turn our clients over to a florist and other suppliers to pull off a look in the hope you will get the dream day you imagined.

After a very hot day in September, I have lovely memories of sitting down in the evening as the dinner started and just thought WOW, it really was a dream fairytale wedding.  Everything was beautifully lit and twinkling away and our guests were enjoying a superb meal after a beautiful ceremony and cocktail.

I was utterly delighted, along with being rather charmed by the Maitre D who also apparently managed to weave his magic charm with the mothers and aunts of the bride and groom, according to Kareemah afterwards :)!  (more…)

It is not often I post about things like this but I do feel after the past few months that I need to sound my voice on a subject I had not really experienced before but wish to share it with you.

Our jobs, as wedding planners, means we meet people from all walks of life, some very wealthy in terms of life and money, others planning delightful weddings on a budget and sadly I have done weddings for terminally ill people. (more…)

A Fairytale Dream at the Magical Marbella Club Part 1

June 26th, 2014 Posted by Fabulous Florals, Fairy Lights for Decoration, Fairytale Weddings, Getting Married in Spain, Marbella Club, Weddings in Marbella 0 thoughts on “A Fairytale Dream at the Magical Marbella Club Part 1”

I am not entirely sure where to start with this magical fairytale wedding of Holly and Jamie we designed and planned last weekend at the breathtaking Marbella Club.

I think a good place to start would be with Holly and Jamie, such a charming and fun couple whom we had the pleasure of working with.  Right from day one when we first met with them 2 years ago, they knew their vision and dream and worked hard with us to help us achieve their perfect day for them communicating with us everything they hoped for and expected and how delighted we are to receive such compliments shortly after their wedding day that their day surpassed everything they could have ever imagined!

It really was a fairytale day dream come true with Holly’s absolutely show stopping dress taking centre stage, we will tell you more about the dress in our next blog post.


The Marbella Club truly lived up to it’s long standing reputation delivering more than a 5 star dining and service experience, headed by Anna and her team they worked hard with Carla to make sure everything was perfect.

Holly’s wedding design was a blush, soft pink and ivory colour scheme mixed with golds and some lovely details.  The flowers, created by Loraine, were stunning and Holly provided lots of gorgeous details from a mix of mother of pearl shell placecard holders to some very pretty napkin rings from Zara Home in pearls and golds.  Jamie worked on the stationery continuing the theme from the invitations into the actual day to provide the placecards, table names and Order of Service booklets.

The gold tiffany chairs were hired in from Pedro Navarro and we finished off all the details and decorations such as gold charger plates, florals, candles, table seating plan set into a vintage white frame, Bali parasols, fans, confetti, chair decorations, lace table cloth for the about us table, a beautiful keepsake box and a fairy lit garden filled with lanterns and candles including our new gorgeous gold lanterns from Zara home surrounding the pool.

The lighting and staging was provided by Nigel at Chez Vous and a whole host of entertainment and surprises were in store for Holly and Jamie’s guests. 

We will share more details in Part 2 of this Fairytale wedding and our thanks to all the suppliers who helped create such a beautiful wedding and to our fabulous team for another show stopping wedding.

Our gorgeous images are courtesy of the super speedy Anna Gazda from Limelight photography, whom we have had the pleasure now of working with for many years and she never ceases to amaze me as to how quickly she gets the photos to us!

A Secret Garden Wedding Inspiration

March 10th, 2013 Posted by About me, Fairytale Weddings, Glitter, My Inspirations, Secret Garden Wedding, Styling Weddings 0 thoughts on “A Secret Garden Wedding Inspiration”
As a young girl my magical world was provided by reading books and I was transported by my imagination into different worlds. I loved books and the wonderful places they would take me to that filled my dreams as I slept.   

Sometimes I wonder if it is this that made me want to create magical spaces as I became an adult.

Enid Blyton´s Faraway Tree,The Wishing Chair, My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell and the Famous Five are all some of many books I was fortunate enough to read as a small child and absolutely loved and I am so lucky my mother encouraged our reading of these enchanting stories.  

One of my favourite novels was The Secret Garden by Frances Hogdson Burnett, I so loved the mysterious wonder of this book and what the Secret Garden held within it´s walls as it was unlocked and discovered.

A Secret Garden wedding for me having read this book would be difficult to achieve with everything my imagination conjures up but I adore this photo shoot created by Hannah Gooch and Sarah Gawler featured on Love My Dress, it has that lovely mysterious quality about it that is so evocative of how I imagine a Secret Garden wedding.

I love the combination of nature and the glamour of the dress.  The styling details are beautifully done so I had to share this gorgeous and magical secret garden inspiration with you 🙂  If you have any beautiful childhood memories you would like to incorporate into your wedding day, we would love to hear about them.

Icecreams & Magical Garden Wedding at the Marbella Club

As I sit here tonight watching a huge storm raging across Marbella, I am cosy and warm enjoying looking at all the wonderful images we are still being sent of our weddings this year by the hugely talented photographers we work with. 
 
After our very busy season, nothing is better than being curled up and ooohing and ahhhing over our weddings we have worked so hard on. 
 
Meticulously planned, delighted clients, glorious sunny days, fabulous florals and all the individual details that made that wedding unique.
 
Every eventuality has to be thought about beforehand and the organisation and creativity that goes into our weddings before the actual day is enormous.
 
 Plan b´s to plan z´s and what if´s are all accounted for before the big day arrives.
 
I always breath a sigh a relief on the actual wedding day as all the work has been done.  It is just a matter of setting everything up and putting all the plans into action.
 
Occasionally we might get the odd surprise, recently one of our make up artists had a car crash on the way to a wedding in the rain, it was quickly resolved by the ever calm Carla.  Luckily our make up artist was fine but we were all shaken up as she is pregnant. 
 
Our September wedding we are showcasing today, thanks to the wonderful photos sent to us by David Toms, was held at the Encarnacion Church in Marbella followed by a fantastic reception at the Marbella Club in the Villa Del Mar.
 
The wedding theme was based on a Secret Garden, the details were gorgeous from keys unlocking Secret Garden menus, beautifully designed and created by Anoulka, to the stunning trees that adorned the tables, complete with fairy lights and hanging votives.
 
The stunning Secret Garden cake table was created by Sweet Things By Fi and involved five hours of work with me helping Fi style the table, using mosses, flowers and wooden tree stumps.  Fi was very lucky no cakes or cake pops went missing but I was all too aware the whole process was being videoed so was behaving myself 🙂
 
The whole of the Villa Del Mar was dressed with beautiful floral displays, the gardens were lit with a magical twinkle, chandeliers and uplighters, the entertainment was fantastic, a wonderful day was had by all.
 
Our thanks to David Toms for these wonderful photos, without these fantastic images we would not be able to share our weddings with you, unless it was with my iphone on Instagram! 
 
Our congratulations to Sophie and Chris on their fabulous wedding here in Marbella and my thanks to my very hard working team that worked for many man hours to make sure every detail was covered and this wedding was a success, Carla, Paloma, Anoulka and Cindy x
 

Sneak Peek A Grande Affaire from Paris

July 14th, 2012 Posted by About Us, Chuppahs for weddings, Fairytale Weddings, Jewish weddings in Spain, Styling Weddings, Wedding Planning service, Wedding Venues in Spain, Weddings in Spain 0 thoughts on “Sneak Peek A Grande Affaire from Paris”
We cannot wait to share this gorgeous wedding extravaganza with you next week, but here is a sneak peek as the photos keep rolling in from Nani de Perez.
We came recommended to this delightful family, from Paris, for our highly professional wedding planning services and met with them earlier this year to help them organise a
3 day event here in Marbella for 300 guests.
With our planning skills and ideas for decor we created an extraordinary affair here in Marbella for the delightful Carole and Warren.
The details of this fabulous event involved an amazing beach party for over 200 people at the stunning Puro Beach including belly dancers and a pre wedding henna ceremony in a gorgeously decorated marquee using pinks and oranges as the colour scheme with a modern Moroccan twist.
This fabulous beach party was followed by the most stunning wedding at the Villa Padierna hotel with a gorgeous chuppah, beautiful flowers by Virginia, details and styling by us and lots of entertainment bought in from France.
The whole event was meticuously planned by Laura and Paloma and we will elaborate on this wedding with many more photos soon.  We, at Reviva Weddings, certainly excelled ourselves and here is our testimonial from our father of the bride in Paris :)!
I wanted to tell you, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for everything you did for us.
It was a big pleasure to work with you and it was a wonderful wedding.
On gardera un exellent souvenir, MUCHISSIMO GRACIAS PARA TODO.
Take care of you all and best regards to Laura and Paloma
Kind regards
John Benattar and family
