It is very rare and probably never happened before that I have posted such a blog post but I am so angered by this situation so here it is in black and white and for everyone to read in the big wide world of the internet in the hope that word gets out and about of this utterly ruthless couple who are currently plaguing and taking the piss our of our wedding world.  Excuse my French!

Our Wedding World, as we like to call it here, is a very close knit community.  All the venues and suppliers know each other and we are like one big family, with a few exceptions, and we look out for each other.

Together, with Lucy from Boutique Weddings, one of my good friends, we set up a closed Facebook group about 2 years ago,  purely for all the wedding suppliers here in Southern Spain.

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.

This past week Spain has had a heatwave, which is unusual for the middle of June, but temperatures have risen to the 40’s inland and over 30 on the coast.  This, my lovelies, is shade temperature 🙂

Many of my past clients have said to me “don’t worry we have nothing but clouds and rain here and are looking forward to seeing some sunshine and blue skies”.

Well this ain’t pleasant sunshine and blue skies, this is searingly fierce heat, it is like being locked in a sauna for the day!

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…)

Our Best Ever Dressed Groom´s Tips!

December 29th, 2012 Posted by Cool Wedding Ideas, Delightful details, Destination Weddings, Grooms, Marbella Weddings, Our Weddings 0 thoughts on “Our Best Ever Dressed Groom´s Tips!”
 
 
We are currently working on our favourite weddings in 2012 to post, but in the meantime we are heading back to a gorgeous wedding we created in 2011 for Chris and Faye at the Finca de la Concepcion in Marbella.
 
 It seems that Chris is still taking the coveted title of best dressed groom and told me today he will hang onto this well earned title for his twilight years!
 
So many of our clients that read my blog are still asking me where Chris got his super stylish suit from 🙂 
 
I am sure I am now beginning to annoy Chris by constantly emailing him to ask him, so this time I have decided to publish his style file on our blog in order I never have to bother him again!
 
Chris and Faye have remained friends since their wedding here and we have been delighted to have met them for coffee whilst Faye was pregnant with little Harrison and now joyfully watch updates on Facebook and Instagram of their gorgeous little boy growing up!  We are hoping to meet the latest addition to this wonderful family, in the flesh, very soon 🙂
 
In the meantime let´s share with you Chris´s Coolest Groom Award Attire!
 
Chris´s lightweight blue/grey suit was off the peg from Reiss
 
Chris´s waistcoat, tie and pocket square were custom made. 
 
I think the dark sunglasses also did the trick to win our coolest groom award!
 
We hope this helps share some of our previous bride and groom tips with you.

We will be back shortly with a gorgeous New Year´s Eve inspiration and our highlights of 2012 weddings.

Private Villas for Weddings in Spain, Quinta Las Colinas

October 12th, 2012 Posted by Delightful details, Marbella Weddings, Our Weddings, Parties in Marbella, Wedding Suppliers on the Costa Del Sol, Wedding Venues in Spain, weddings in private villas 0 thoughts on “Private Villas for Weddings in Spain, Quinta Las Colinas”
Earlier this year I was invited to meet with Niki and James at a villa called Quinta Las Colinas that they had hired for their wedding here in July.  As I wound my way up the picturesque Istan Road from Marbella, I kept wanting to pull over to admire the views over the lakes but I was booked for a meeting and did not have time to stop.
 

As I turned into the track down to the villa and wound my way towards the lake I could see what I hoped might be the villa at the bottom, it looked amazing.  When I arrived there I was shown into the villa through some delightful old wooden doors and immediately fell in love with it´s pretty Andalucian inner courtyard.  I love properties with inner courtyards so was immediately sold!
 
I was then led out to the back garden, having wanted to stop on the way up to admire the views over the lakes, I was rewarded as soon as I stepped outside into the gardens to be greeted with the most stunning views over the majestic, sparkling lakes, a truly breathtaking location.
 
I was hired by Niki and James to help them create their wedding decor and have to say it was such fun styling their wedding day as it just such a breathtaking place to work in, I kept stopping to admire the views all day!  Niki and James had a fantastic wedding day that partied well into the night. 
 
Fiestasol provided the delicious catering and wedding furniture, David Toms captured this wedding, we must get the proper photos to show you, Lizzie Marriage performed a beautiful ceremony, Sweet Things By Fi created a stunning wedding cake and Tristan Harper had the wedding party on their feet, dancing the night away under the stars!
 
We are thrilled that Quinta Las Colinas are now offering this gorgeous villa in such a stunning location as a wedding venue and in order to promote it they have become our newest shiny sponsor and we are thrilled to welcome them on board.
 
 
So let me give you some information.  Quinta Las Colinas is located just up the Istan Road from Marbella at Km 9, about a 10 to 15 minute drive away from Marbella and Puerto Banus and also only minutes away from the white washed village of Istan nestled in the mountains above Marbella so you can enjoy the best of both worlds from the nightlife on the coast to a tranquil tapas in the mountains.
 
 
Quinta Las Colinas is finished to a very high standard and offers extremely comfortable, luxurious accommodation including a delightful open plan lounge and dining area furnished with cosy leather sofas, a stunning wood burning stove, an inner Andalucian style patio area, and a built in bar that is perfect for entertaining guests in the evening! 
 
 
Along with the beautifully designed cosy charm this property offers, it has all the modern facilities including Sky Plus, WiFi, DVD with speakers outside on the terraces, and a fully equipped kitchen with an American style fridge.
 
Quinta Las Colinas sleeps 10 to 12 people with the accommodation consisting of 5 double bedrooms including a master suite with a double bathroom and secluded terrace and a tower room with a double sofa bed, ideal for teenagers.
 
 
There is a lovely full sized swimming pool on a lower level to the gardens that is perfect for a BBQ, pool party or cocktails as well of course as just lazing in the sunshine!
 
 Quinta Las Colinas is perfect for a smaller intimate wedding party and can easily accommodate a wedding of up to 70 people in the beautiful gardens overlooking the lakes.

Beautiful Vintage Style Chairs for Weddings

June 5th, 2012 Posted by Delightful details, Lanterns and Candles, Marbella Weddings, Styling Weddings, Vintage Style, Vintage Weddings 0 thoughts on “Beautiful Vintage Style Chairs for Weddings”
When I design weddings I love the different styles we can apply according to the clients and the array of venues we work with.
Villa Padierna, here in Marbella, is famous for Michelle Obama visting and reminds me of a Vegas style Italian themed hotel, lots of marble, fountains and statues that we are forever covering up at weddings! and a very grand, elegant feel to the whole venue.
This weekend we worked very hard to create a beautiful wedding for Rebecca and John, a delightful and charming couple that we had the pleasure of designing their wedding for.
Rebecca, for me, was a challenge, she had a very elegant refined taste that took time for me to know exactly what she wanted and after a few meetings I finally narrowed her down to what she wanted to achieve for her day.
To sum it up it was to be a beautifully, elegant contemporary style wedding but with a vintage, spanish twist using lace and she wanted a huge amount of candle light 🙂
We kept the design to a stunning ivory and lace theme using lots of different height cylilnder glassware and ivory candles to create a mass in the centre of each table.
The venue was dressed with our fairy lights, candles on the steps, and lanterns surrounding the Linares terrace area.
The highlight for me with Rebecca and John´s wedding was our new gorgeous chair dressing with ivory covers, gorgeous vintage lace chair sashes finished off with some gorgeous hugely sparkly diamante vintage brooches 🙂
The final result looked stunning and we were thrilled.
We had to just share a chair with you but hopefully we will have all the photos to blog soon as this wedding was so stylish, elegant and beautiful 🙂
