We love these new wedding trends that are coming in from interior styling, concrete, marble, coppers, rose golds and as I predicted recently cactus are taking 2017 by storm.

Even big retailers such as Ikea are doing these cute ceramic cactus this year, aren’t they just brilliant for styling up a welcome guest table or dessert station!  At only 15 euros for the set of 3 this is affordable and a fun idea, but be quick as have a feeling these will be seen at quite a few weddings this coming year!

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…)

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…)

Laughter at La Cabane, Los Monteros Hotel

February 8th, 2015 Posted by Churches in Marbella, Fun Stuff, Getting Married in Spain, La Cabane Los Monteros, Our Weddings, Wedding Photographers in Spain, Wedding venues in Marbella 0 thoughts on “Laughter at La Cabane, Los Monteros Hotel”

Here we are still sharing our fabulous weddings from 2014 with you as we chase the photos in!

I don’t think I have ever seen so many photos from one wedding so full of smiles and laughter throughout the entire day 🙂  

When we first met Suzie and Barry we knew their wedding day would be one big party, they were such a sociable, warm and pleasant couple and their parents were all great friends so we could see this was going to be a fabulously fun filled day with a family that loved life and loved celebrating!

Suzie and Barry held their wedding ceremony at the Encarnacion church then transported their guests to the stunning La Cabane Beach Club at Los Monteros hotel for a fabulous wedding reception.

The evening started off with Masquerade, during the dinner, making sure it was going to be a lively evening and they had an amazing fireworks display followed by dancing into the early hours of the morning.

The next day the festivities continued on the beach offering plenty of hangover food and drinks along with some more wonderful entertainment including the Brazilian drummers and dancers.

Our congratulations to Suzie and Barry and our thanks to all the wonderful suppliers involved in creating such a fun filled few days.

Wedding Celebrations at the Castillo de Santa Catalina, Malaga

January 18th, 2015 Posted by Blush for Weddings, Castle weddings in Spain, Gold Sequins for weddings, Our Weddings, wedding planners Marbella, Wedding Planners Spain, Wedding Venues in Spain 0 thoughts on “Wedding Celebrations at the Castillo de Santa Catalina, Malaga”


Here we are at the beginning of 2015 and already busy planning our weddings for this coming year but are still receiving wonderful photos of our 2014 weddings to share with you.

Lea and Marouen’s wedding at the end of September, is one of my favourites from 2014 and they were such a charming, sweet and delightful couple to work with. 

I remember meeting with Lea in Malaga at the beginning of last year and Jess driving Lea around Andalucia as they looked at venues, finally settling on the beautiful Castillo de Santa Catalina for their wedding and the Cortijo Sabila for the pre-wedding paella pool party and base for their wedding preparations.

As their wedding day approached though we were really excited but also frantically checking the weather on every possible available weather app known to mankind as a storm of gigantic proportions had been predicted hitting Malaga around 6pm just as their ceremony was about to start.  I think I was introduced to weather apps I did not know existed this day!

We, as wedding planners, and knowing the huge amount of rain that can literally pour from Spanish skies had sadly resorted to going with plan B to play safe but instead after much consulting, toing and froing and a rather large and elaborate floral arch being moved from inside the venue to outside via a lift and a flight of stairs, plus a little bit of stress, and last minute parasols being hired in, we decided to risk it and continue with plan A.

In the end not one drop of rain reached us as the storm raged out over the sea and a beautiful and fabulous wedding was underway.  We were so lucky but I have never seen so many eyes looking up to the skies and surveying the looming clouds!
  
The girls got ready at the Cortijo Sabila where they were well and truly looked after by the one of the greatest hosts I know, Yvonne.  Jess was totally in love with Lea’s dress and having palpitations over her beautiful Jimmy Choo shoes!   Then the girls left and travelled down to Malaga to the stunning Castillo where Lea and Marouen’s beautiful ceremony was conducted on the roof terrace of the Castillo de Santa Catalina by the lovely Natasha.   

We created a floral arch which we think looked lovely despite being moved and broken down to fit into the lift and quickly reassembled!   The aisle on the roof terrace was lined with blossom trees and blush petals and a welcome table was set up displaying the Order of Service booklets we designed, antique pink parasols, personalised fans and confetti.

The cocktail area set in the Castillo’s ruins really did not need much decoration as it is so beautiful but we set up a fun area for bling rings and hats and created a lovely table seating plan with different frames set onto a wooden board.

As the evening progressed we have never seen so much dancing under the fairy lights, it was fabulous, the celebrations were well and truly underway.  There was a wonderful flamenco display followed by a delicious meal and a lot of dancing away into the early hours with Tristan the DJ.

The wedding theme was blush and golds, we decorated the venue with lots of lanterns and a large fairy light display hanging down the walls of the venue.  The tables were beautifully sparkly with our gold sequin table runners, blush, pink and peach floral arrangements set into vintage style gold pots surrounded with gold tealights, the whole effect was beautiful and stylish.

Lea and Marouen provided each guest with some very pretty favors of chocolates decorated with blush flowers and a little bag of sugar almonds which were set off perfectly on each place setting which we had styled with our gold charger plates and tied each napkin with a blush ribbon.

Jess and Rocio organised the whole day beautifully and the wedding cake was created by the venue and finished with some lovely gold glitter heart cake topper decorations ordered by Lea as she knew she could not have a wedding without my love of gold glitter!

We hope you enjoy these photos of such a beautiful wedding at the Castillo de Santa Catalina, we have lots of weddings there again this coming year so we are sure this will help many of our couples envisage their own weddings here.

Our thanks to Jess and Rocio for being such fabulous planners, the venue, Joseba Sandoval from Romance Weddings for such wonderful images, Yvonne at the Cortijo Sabila, Natasha the celebrant, Tristan the DJ and of course our congratulations to Lea and Marouen x

Autumnal Wedding in Stiges, Barcelona by Reviva

January 14th, 2014 Posted by Our Weddings, Wedding Planners in Barcelona, Wedding Stationery Spain, Wedding Venues in Spain, Weddings in Barcelona 0 thoughts on “Autumnal Wedding in Stiges, Barcelona by Reviva”

As the long, hot steaming summer came to an end here in Spain our weddings continued into the beautiful month of October.  

This is one of my favourite months as A it is my birthday! and B after the end of September torrential rains it is always a beautifully warm autumnal month apart from the yearly thunderstorm that seems to wait until my birthday eve.  

A much calmer and cooler air descends on Spain as we excitedly approach our October weddings.  Spanish autumnal weddings are charming and have an feel of elegance and peace about them after a mad hot Spanish summer.

We are delighted to share Kumiko and Scott´s wedding with you held in the glorious Almiral de la Font in Sitges, just outside Barcelona, and their wonderful testimonial we were thrilled to receive.

I hope this testimonial will sum up what Reviva´s services mean to a couple trying to plan their wedding from abroad as often I get asked what do we actually do!

Dear Laura and Carla,

Thank you very much for making our wedding so beautiful, meaningful and memorable!
We don’t know how the wedding would ever have happened without all of your help.  We must have been a particularly difficult, indecisive and clueless couple when it comes to wedding planning, but from day 1 you had us on track!  

It is difficult to describe how helpful and supportive you were.  In particular, your attention to detail is unparalleled.  From suggesting and arranging meetings with the vendors and helping us find a restaurant for the rehearsal dinner, to holding our hand through the wedding weekend, we knew that everything was being covered with even greater care than we would have given ourselves.  We knew that we could trust you implicitly, which made the planning process and the wedding itself far less stressful.  


We were truly impressed with your dedication and professionalism throughout.

The flowers and decorations for the wedding were beautiful and exactly what we were hoping for.  You really understood us and our taste and matched the wedding style to us perfectly.  And thank you so much for your patience in working with us on the invitations they turned out beautifully and our guests were truly impressed!

All of our guests have said that our wedding was the best, most fun and most beautiful wedding that they had ever attended (and we agree!).  They all had an amazing time, and we did as well.  We are truly grateful for everything!

Best regards,
Scott & Kumiko


Our thank you and congratulations to the most charming couple, Kumiko and Scott who were not at all difficult to work with, they were an absolute delight and we are thrilled they allowed and trusted us to organise their wonderful time here in Barcelona with their family and friends.

Our thanks also to all the vendors we worked with who work tirelessly to offer a professional service every time and to Cathy Loughran for these lovely images.

A Spanish Rustic Orange and Olive Hacienda Wedding by Reviva

December 18th, 2013 Posted by Delightful details, Hacienda Weddings in Spain, Our Weddings, Styling Weddings in Spain, Wedding Stationery Spain, Wedding Venues in Spain, Weddings in Seville 0 thoughts on “A Spanish Rustic Orange and Olive Hacienda Wedding by Reviva”

Tonight as we head towards Christmas at a rapid rate it is lovely to have time now to reflect back over the year and look at all our beautiful weddings so we are delighted to receive these fabulous photos from Alberto and Sue at SaroCallister photography of one of our weddings we styled way back in June at the charming Hacienda San Rafael based just outside Seville.  

I always squeak with excitement when we are creating weddings at this venue as it is so on my top list of favourite venues and I love heading up to Seville, any excuse for a mini break up there and to catch up with Anthony!

We are delighted today to have been booked to style a wedding there this coming year for Nina and Matt 🙂

Katy and Simon, what a perfect pair and what a laugh, I think you can see this in their photos, humour emanated from Simon and he was one of those lovely characters that was so going to enjoy his day.    

Their wedding date was set for the second week in June and having travelled to Seville in glorious sunshine the weekend before for Margot and Sergy´s wedding you can imagine my horror at waking up there 6 days later to a definite sniff in the air of rain :/

Luckily despite some grey coverage it never materialised and a fabulous day was had by all.  We had a wonderful time creating all the staging, styling, props and florals for this wedding from the paddle fans to the bridal bouquets.  A prop box was set up for the cocktail along with the fabulous table seating plan and many personalised signs were displayed around the venue.  We loved the little touches such as the dancing shoes and of course waved our famous magic wand to turn the venue into a candle lit, twinkling paradise ready for the evening.

The beautiful ruffle wedding cake was created by Sweet Things by Fi and we would like to thank Alberto and Sue at Saro McCallister Photography for allowing us to share these fabulous images with you and to Anthony at the Hacienda for always having a permanent smile on his face and being such a star to work with 🙂

Our congratulations to Katy and Simon and thank you for allowing us to style and create your day x
