Tonight I am curled up on my terrace, watching lightning flashing over Morocco and have also read it is snowing just behind me up in the hills behind Marbella. What a diverse and wonderful part of the world I live in and am so embracing the winter season as the clocks went back last night.

Cosy knitwear, fluffy socks, winter food, endless tea, winter beach walks, I just love it and of course the build-up to Christmas! Yes, I am one of those Christmas freaks that will be dying to put the tree up once Halloween has finished but will have to sit it out for November at least! (more…)

There are many beautiful venues in Marbella and we are fortunate to have worked in almost all of them during our 11 years of creating weddings.

This venue, however, was on my wedding bucket list, I have visited it many times, at first when it was called Silks, and then finally it was taken over by the Trocadero Group who have created such a unique space.

Think of laid-back colonial style with a safari theme, dark woods, beautiful furnishings, cosy corners for the winter with log fires and a stunning setting on the beach surrounded by palm trees.

A stunning church and imposing Palacio in the heart of Seville City was always going to be a winning combination for the wedding of Aine & Sean who adore this vibrant city as much as we do.

Aine contacted us with just 6 months to organize her wedding having seen our work and a previous wedding she loved on our blog at the stunning Casa Guardiola. (more…)

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…)

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.

Awesome Achievement Stickers!

August 8th, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Awesome Achievement Stickers!”

I fell across this article this evening and after a really rough week it resonated with me.

Sometimes you have just got to share things!  In this case I am sharing achievement stickers for self employed and freelance people who run small businesses.

Running your own business is awesome, you can manage your own time and don´t have to clock into an office but this does not mean you don´t put in the hours.  I would say most self employed people work many more hours than the average person as we nurture our business babies!
