This weekend I will cover a very popular style of wedding here in Spain, villa weddings.

As you search for venues and wedding planners you may notice many wedding planners do not offer private villa weddings as part of their service and prefer to stick to the hotel and wedding venue packages. (more…)

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!

Earlier this year I was contacted by Paul and Joy, an utterly charming couple looking to host their wedding in Spain with their family and a couple of close friends.

Paul and Joy had already booked a stunning villa in Ronda for the week of their wedding but were set on a beach blessing and then wanted to head up to the hills for a Mamma Mia style dinner party with plenty of good food and wines at their villa.

After we met for a coffee, they were sold and so was I!

During our meeting I suggested a few beach venues that I thought would fit their criteria perfectly.  They took down the details and directions and spent the rest of their holiday having a nosey, some lovely laid back beach lunches and checking out my suggestions!

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.

I can never contain my excitement when we receive professional photos of our work 🙂

Marijana contacted me last year to hire us for the styling and decoration of her wedding to the rather dashing Roberto.

Now this wedding was going to be held in a fabulous Castle in Carmona.  I was sold!

Carmona is one of my favourite towns in Spain so I jumped at the chance to organise another visit to this magical town and, a bonus, spend time here creating a beautiful wedding.  This town holds such a special place in my heart as I was fortunate enough to take my beloved father there for his 80th birthday weekend, not knowing he would never make his 81st, special times and wonderful memories.
