When Karina got in touch with me to tell me her little brother was getting married I was so delighted to hear from her as I had decorated her wedding many years ago at La Cabane, Los Monteros hotel. I met with Simon and Maria, we chose a fabulous beach side villa, organised all the suppliers and were ready to roll out their wedding when disaster struck.

Today I will cover the popular beach venues and what to consider when you are looking for a beautiful ceremony and reception overlooking the Mediterranean sea.

Spain is a diverse country with the Costa Del Sol and the coast of Barcelona being the two most popular beach locations for weddings but the two coastlines are totally different. (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 Sparkly Sneak Preview of our Stunning Marbella Club Wedding :)

June 13th, 2013 Posted by Delightful details, Marbella Club, Stylish Weddings in Spain, wedding planners Marbella, Wedding Stationery Marbella, Wedding Stationery Spain, Weddings in Marbella 0 thoughts on “A Sparkly Sneak Preview of our Stunning Marbella Club Wedding :)”

We knew we would eventually sneak the sparkle and glitter in somewhere in our 2013 weddings and here is a preview of a wedding we planned and designed this weekend at the prestigious Marbella Club.

Ingrid and Hugo invited their friends and family here from Holland to celebrate their wedding and we organised a 3 day event including a welcome dinner at the Gran Gatsby restaurant and a post wedding beach lunch at the Trocadero beach in Marbella.

We loved designing and creating the wedding details including our stylish table seating plan set into a white vintage style frame embellished with simple green bows with table names and placecards to match.

 Pretty accessories and florals adorned this wedding from the personalised fans decorated with green ribbons and white paper vintage style roses, gorgeous florals from Virginia florists, fresh green chair decoration, chill outs in silvers and whites with a few silver sequins thrown in all made for a beautifully stylish wedding.

There was lots of romance and glamour combined with a beautiful palette of whites, silvers and fresh greens along with many fun parts to the day which we will share with you soon including a midnight white balloon send off with sparklers.

Our thanks to Agata Jensen photography for such gorgeous sneak peek images.

A Gorgeous Christmas Wedding Photo Shoot from Ireland

December 18th, 2012 Posted by About Us, Christmas inspirations, Christmas Weddings, Marbella Club, My Inspirations, Our Weddings, Photoshoots, Ski resorts in Spain 0 thoughts on “A Gorgeous Christmas Wedding Photo Shoot from Ireland”


Here at Reviva we are getting into a very festive mood and are in love with this gorgeous Christmas photo shoot organised and styled by one of my previous and all time favourite brides 🙂
Claire tied the knot with her gorgeous hubby here in Marbella in 2010 and I was delighted to be hired as her wedding stylist, florist and decorator, we have since become good friends and Claire left Marbella well and truly hooked on wedding world. 
 Upon Claire´s return to Ireland, as a happily married woman, she set about spending a year training to become a fully qualified wedding planner setting up her dream business, a fabulous wedding and styling company White Sage Events.
With Claire´s attention to details combined with her natural flair for style she really was suited to becoming a wonderful wedding planner and I have enjoyed watching her flourish as she has worked tirelessly to set up her successful business and is now reaping the rewards of working for herself and you can see she is totally devoted to her profession.
Do head over to Claire´s website to have a look at her fabulous work.
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing this Christmassy photo shoot Claire´s company recently put together, it is so festive and beautifully styled, the deep berry Christmas reds combined with the soft greys are a perfect winter wedding palette.  Claire´s attention to detail will ensure you have a wonderful wedding and this photo shoot just reinforces her wonderful sense of style.
We absolutely love it and are rather jealous we do not get many winter style weddings as there are so many wonderful decoration opportunities, but here in Spain all our brides wish to get married in the wonderful Mediterranean sunshine and who can blame them as Spain is known for it´s wonderful climate.
However with the exciting opening of the Marbella Club´s latest venture in the Sierra Nevada, the El Lodge Ski and Spa we are holding out hope now that we may indeed get some beautiful snowy winter style weddings to design, plan and host 🙂 
Imagine hosting your wedding in a wonderfully festive and snowy ski resort near Granada and bringing your guests down to the coast with a 2 hour drive for a beach party the next day!  How different would this be 🙂
I have done it, skiing all through the day and sitting in Marbella on the beach in my ski wear in the sunshine enjoying a cocktail in the evening, there are not many countries in the world where you can do this!
Claire´s wonderful colleagues involved in this photo shoot were
Claire at White Sage Events Shoot Coordination and Styling White Sage Events
Florist Best of Buds
Photography Lisa O´Dwyer
Wardrobe Styling Lindsay Moynagh
Hair Accessories Aisling Maher and Rangoli
Make Up Rosa Ospina
Hair Caitriona of Headrush
Stationery Citrus Ink Launching soon!
Cakes and Deserts Cloudberry Bakery
Models Jacqui Murphy and Sarah O´Connor
Alfie the Dog :)!
If you do hire Claire for your wedding planning please do make sure you change your entire colour scheme 10 days before your wedding and email your guest list the night before at 1.30am so she can create your table seating plans, table names and guest placecards ;)!

A Fabulous Wedding at the Marbella Club

July 18th, 2012 Posted by Delightful details, Jewish weddings in Spain, Marbella Club, Wedding Flowers Marbella, Wedding Planning service, Wedding Suppliers on the Costa Del Sol, Weddings in Marbella 0 thoughts on “A Fabulous Wedding at the Marbella Club”
At the end of last year we met with the delightful Alexandra and Kevin who were visiting Marbella as they were interviewing a few wedding planners in order to establish who they felt would deliver an excellent service and help them plan, coordinate and style their special day and they decided to hire us 🙂
Alexandra and Kevin had already booked the prestigious Villa Del Mar at the Marbella Club Hotel as the venue for their wedding and a handful of suppliers.
What they required was a professional team behind them to manage and coordinate all their wedding day details, add in the suppliers that were missing and oversee their celebrations.
Carla put together their wedding schedule, budget sheet and organised the rest of the suppliers and details needed and the end result was a beautifully organised and planned wedding ceremony held in the stunning gardens of the Villa Del Mar.
The delightful ceremony was followed by a fantastic dinner reception in the idyllic gardens overlooking the Mediterranean sea and and some real show stopping entertainment provided by Larry Jazz and Yanela Brooks.  Yanela had us boogingy away when she was rehearsing, so I can imagine how fabulous her night time show was!
Although we do create flowers we do feel it is fair as planners to offer a variety of suppliers so our clients can make choices, including florists.
 We do not like our couples to feel they have to use us for everything, so on this occasion the gorgeous flowers were provided by Virginia including the very stylish decoration of the wedding canopy, the divine bridal flowers and the tall table arrangements which consisted of large floral balls sat on tall glassware using white hydrangeas, roses and gypsophelia. 
We had fun creating and styling the rest of this gorgeous day 🙂
 We provided white chill out bracelets for their pre wedding party at Los Monteros Hotel.
The table seating plan was hand written on a shabby chic style white mirror and the fan shaped table names and placecards created by Anoulka were gorgeous with tiny pearl details. The placecards were tied to the napkins with ribbons and the tables were scattered with pearls to finish the overall look of the tables and the very yummy cake was provided by the Marbella Club Hotel.  We dressed the chairs with white organza ribbons and placed white pashminas on all the ladies chairs.
Our lanterns, candles and fairy lights lit up the gardens and provided a gorgeous, twinkly  and very romantic seaside back drop 🙂
Our thanks to David Toms for this selection of wonderful photos from this delightful wedding, and to see more of this very romantic day we have a short video to share with you from BodaKids.
Here is our lovely testimonial for Carla and her superb wedding planner skills
from Alexandra and Kevin, thankfully she has not been shoved into a suitcase and is still with us!
“When we decided upon Marbella as a location for our wedding the one concern was the weather (given the venue was outside) and the second was organization, given the Spanish are not know for their skills in this department! (I can say that because by mother is Spanish).
You could say it was love at first sight.
The first time we met Carla we knew she was the one.
Personable, organized and full of suggestions she filled us with confidence and that confidence was well placed as she enabled us to have the most magical wedding.
She was always on call, responsive and even reminded us of our own timeline.
We could not have organized such a special day without her. She is one in a million.
We wish you could have become back with us in our suitcase.
Thank you
Alexandra and Kevin”
Our congratulations to Alexandra and Kevin and our huge thanks to the Marbella Club and all the suppliers whom without their dedication, professionalism and devotion we could not do our job!
