As my business is weddings and styling, plus a background in interiors and design, I constantly watch trends emerging.  I am pretty good at predicting them and love watching talents emerge that really stand out from the crowds so had to share this amazing cake designer with you.

I found Ivenoven on Instagram and was immediately wowed by her amazing creativity and skills.

Her website is simple but really she does not need much else as her cakes speak for themselves, they are quite simply works of art. (more…)

It is no secret that the interior designer in me is a constant source of inspiration when it comes to applying aesthetics to our weddings.  I adore, and probably spend too many hours, poring over interior design trends and ideas.

I love interiors, from Modern to Moroccan, Mediterranean to English Country Garden or City Living.  All such different styles and each one provides a huge source of inspiration for me to apply to my work.  Give me cushions and I am in heaven!   (more…)

Hi everyone and welcome to the New Year!  I hope you all had a brilliant Christmas and New Year.

Here in Spain it is still a holiday with the 3 Kings tomorrow and one last weekend to relax and celebrate before all normality returns and the darling little kiddies go back to school, yay!!

I admit I switched off for a while from weddings as Christmas overtook me, which is always great as it allows me a bit of a breather and creative time.

Some weddings have certain elements about them that will always be etched in your memories and this fabulous wedding of Niamh and Andrew is one of them.

Actually for quite a few reasons, of which some they have no idea about, but firstly because of their tiny vintage 500 fiat car they hired for their wedding.   For me, it just made their day, it was fun, cute and just probably the most unwise choice for a wedding car but gosh did we love it and doesn’t it make for some really great photos!   (more…)

We are in love with this latest trend of 2016 that we will see a lot more for 2017 weddings, don’t they just make for fabulous photos!!

They cast a billowing coloured smoke which lasts apparently for about 5 minutes, enough time to get some great atmospheric photos.

Love Padlocks in Spain

April 30th, 2012 Posted by Delightful details, I Love, My Inspirations, Romantic Ideas, spanish wedding themes, Unusual Ideas, Weddings in Spain 0 thoughts on “Love Padlocks in Spain”
Attaching a padlock to a bridge and throwing the key into the river is seen as a symbol of enduring love and this rather romantic idea of love padlocks, otherwise known as love locks, is proving a popular craze in most cities across Europe after the publication of the 2007 cult best-seller Ho Voglia De Te (I Want You) which saw a young couple attach a padlock to the city’s Milvian Bridge and throw away the key into the river, as a sign of their love.  
This trend has spread, but not of course without controversy. 
Whilst it is a lovely romantic idea, it does appear sadly that in some cities it has caused problems with the weight of thousands of padlocks threatening structures and historical monuments, the Rialto bridge in Italy is one such structure that has suffered, I guess due to it´s already popular romantic setting. 
The not so romantic authorities of many cities have been apparently dismantling the padlocks with cutters, but in Moscow they have built metal trees instead on Luzhkov Bridge, giving a designated area for friends and lovers to express their love and affection.
Wouldn´t it be fabulous to have these in Marbella!

I was quite intrigued by this idea though and found out there is a bridge in most of the Spanish cities where this latest craze has developed including Malaga and Sevilla and even now in Madrid.
Perhaps Spain should now build some romantic structures to attract what I think is rather a romantic idea but in the meantime this could be perhaps bought into your wedding day either in the ceremony, stationery or even in the props.
I do love an inspiration so thought I would share this with you!
