During the Christmas and New Year holiday many couples will become engaged and start thinking about perhaps hosting a destination wedding.

Over the past 10 years Spain has seen a huge increase in destination weddings for a number of reasons. (more…)

Nestled in the hills between Mijas and Fuengirola with stunning views over the coastline, is the location of an extremely popular restaurant which has been running for years, the Valparaiso.

Since 1984 Valparaiso´s charismatic owner, Raffaele, has welcomed hundreds of famous people to his establishment and as you enter you are whipped back in time to the glamour of the 80´s and 90´s.

The walls of the reception are adorned with framed photos of famous faces who have frequented this restaurant from James Hunt, the racing driver, to Cilla Black and more recently the Beckhams.  There are so many famous faces it is really quite a sight to see.

The charming restaurateur, Raffaele, works his magic to make sure visiting his restaurant is a romantic experience and always hands out red roses to the ladies, me included!  Often during planning this wedding I rocked out of there with a red rose between my teeth!

Well what can I say about these two!  Matt and Jason, brilliant fun, awesome was another word thrown around a lot and we loved every minute of planning their wedding in Barcelona!

Right from day one, I knew this was going to be a very special and fun wedding.

After presenting different venues then narrowing them down to the final choices,  Matt and Jason flew out to view their wedding venues with Petra, they knew instantly the Torres del Leones was the perfect venue and worked with their envisaged wedding style.

I first met Matt and Jason in person at their food tasting a few months later,  from that day on I knew this was going to be a wedding filled with humour.

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.
