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…)

After a very hot day in September, I have lovely memories of sitting down in the evening as the dinner started and just thought WOW, it really was a dream fairytale wedding.  Everything was beautifully lit and twinkling away and our guests were enjoying a superb meal after a beautiful ceremony and cocktail.

I was utterly delighted, along with being rather charmed by the Maitre D who also apparently managed to weave his magic charm with the mothers and aunts of the bride and groom, according to Kareemah afterwards :)!  (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…)

Luxury Weddings in Spain

October 13th, 2014 Posted by Exclusive Wedding Venues Spain, Luxury Weddings in Marbella, Luxury Weddings in Spain, Reviva Weddings Exclusive Weddings, Weddding Photographers in Spain 0 thoughts on “Luxury Weddings in Spain”

Earlier this year we planned a beautiful and luxury wedding for David and Luica in a stunning private villa set in the hills behind Marbella.  

For our avid followers you may recall this floral heaven we had the delight of working on with the uber cool and hugely talented floral designer Pedro Navarro as we have blogged this before.

To say we were squeaking with excitement when Pedro and his team rolled up with tons of flowers is an understatement and everyone quickly went to work to create a superbly stunning piece of wedding heaven for our clients under the watchful eye of Mar from Romance Weddings.  

Mar, as well as being an assistant photographer for her hubby, Joseba of Romance Weddings, is a woman after our own heart who loves nothing better than styling, we had a fabulous day all working together on the details to pull our clients dream day together.

There were an awful lot of ribbons, confetti and double sided tape being happily thrown around and the divine watercolour stationery from the Design House of Moira complimented the beautiful table designs.

We are delighted now to see the world happily sharing this luxury wedding from Spain. Perhaps we are finally dragging Spain into the luxury wedding market although with the latest coverage of Amal Alamuddin’s wedding to her actor hubby :), we may still be in competition with Italy!

Here are some of the recent blog posts popping up on the web sharing our wedding work with Pedro Navarro and Romance Weddings.

We will be sharing a lot of our weddings with you during the dark winter months so do like our Facebook page or pop back to read our blog.

Lifestyle Boudoir Photography by Aleksandra Olejnik

February 1st, 2014 Posted by Boudoir shoots in Spain, Bridal Beauty Marbella, Delightful details, Lifestyle photography, Weddding Photographers in Spain, Wedding Suppliers on the Costa Del Sol 0 thoughts on “Lifestyle Boudoir Photography by Aleksandra Olejnik”

Over the past five years I have watched the trend of lifestyle photography branching out and covering so many subjects as well as weddings.  

We have maternity shoots, new baby shoots, engagement shoots, family portraits and each day I look at many images of beautifully captured once in a lifetime moments taken by some very talented photographers.

About three years ago, I first heard of boudoir shoots and can´t say the idea caught my attention as felt, dare I say, it was slightly tacky but how wrong I was.    

It was only last year my view point on this new trend changed as I witnessed some of my brides presenting their new husbands with jaw dropping beautifully produced photographic albums full of creative and intimate images and realised how personal and special these photographs were and the effort that had been made to to create such a meaningful gift.  I loved the excitement between the bride and her bridesmaids as they admired the photos and were so excited about the surprise present about to be presented to the groom.

All these images are feminine, creative and beautifully thought through from the make up and hair to the outfits and having chatted to Aleksandra about producing these intimate photos she said she loves the reaction of the women she photographs as it gives them self confidence and a huge boost.  I love the fact you do not have to have a model figure or be incredibly beautiful, they are all evocative and seductive regardless of shape and size.

This is what lifestyle photography is, it is capturing everyday events and special moments and life in general, so it is a wonderful talent to be able to photograph and document this so well.

Aleksandra is a beautiful person and a wonderful photographer based here in Mijas whom I have had the pleasure of meeting on a few occasions as she has worked on some of our weddings and I personally love her work.  Aleksandra is available for both lifestyle and wedding photography and if you would like to see more do hop over to Aleksandra´s website and I am sure we will be seeing a lot more of her stunning and elegant images this year.

Alice in Wonderland Wedding – A Few Details!

September 24th, 2013 Posted by About Us, Alice in Wonderland themes, Delightful details, Styling Weddings in Spain, Weddding Photographers in Spain, Wedding Venues in Spain 0 thoughts on “Alice in Wonderland Wedding – A Few Details!”
It is not often you are given two weeks notice to put together a wedding 🙂

We all knew Nigel and Olivia from Chez Vous were getting married and Reviva Weddings were pencilled in to oversee the day.  

But with all of us working in the events and wedding industry, our work and weddings ran away with us over the summer as normal and lo and behold with two weeks notice we managed to pull off a most fantastic wedding for one of the most hard working persons I know apart from me!  

Nigel, from Chez Vous Events, had approached me earlier this year to help him coordinate and style his wedding.  He wanted us to oversee his day to make sure it all went smoothly and to style everything, adding in the details and fun elements and wave my magic wand over his special day. 

I was very honored that Nigel had chosen me to help him with his wedding.

I really wish I had had the luxury of spending more time on this fabulous theme as when I finally saw the venue, two weeks before the big day, it just screamed magical fairy garden, Alice in Wonderland theme.

So we quickly set to work to achieve as much as possible in such a short space of time but of course I knew we would do it and come up trumps!

Much frantic ordering was done over the internet however sadly some things did not show up in time or indeed are still not here.  

I did order some themed tags from a site called Folksy from a girl called Rowena who runs Crafty Pagan Designs, but they never arrived and I have not had a reply from my emails asking where the order is or if I can have a refund, how disappointing is that?

But many fabulous suppliers came up trumps, including the wonderful designer Angela from Red Star Designs on Etsy.  Angela created a really cool Alice in Wonderland menu for me based on my brief and some lovely Drink Me stickers which we placed on small milk bottles and mason jars for the guests welcome drinks upon arrival at the venue along with paper straws.

Luckily for us arty crafty girls here at Reviva, especially my daughter Isabel, who is the real talent behind our styling team, the rest of the decorations were created in-house.

It did involve an all nighter to complete everything the night leading up to the day as we were busy with weddings all week before and after!  

Isabel handpainted and wrote the fabulous signs with directions and quotes which we placed around the venue, along with some giant paper flowers.

We created table names with white roses supplied with pots of red paint and brushes for the guests to paint the roses red.  It was funny the next day to see what the guests had created!

All the tags for the placecards were beautifully hand written by Isabel and attached to some really cute vintage keys, courtesy of Jess, and these were displayed with the menus on each place setting.

I arranged for Nigel to create a large entrance door to the reception and we styled this with different height logs, clocks, moss, a giant key, a mini door and more signs.

We went shopping and found some beautiful pink and gold vintage style teapots and teacups from the designer collection Carolyn Donnelly Ecletic at Dunnes. 

They were perfect for this theme and Nigel and Olivia´s florist filled them with flowers to use as display props on the buffet tables.

The gardens were turned into a Fairy Wonderland using upturned logs decorated with moss and tealights along with our mini silver candelabras adding a magical touch as guests wandered through the maze of this quite extraordinary venue.

Loraine created some lovely woodland twig displays to decorate the buffet tables using moss, plants and flowers along with mini vintage clocks and more silver candelabras and teapots.  

The star of the show had to be the cake by Sweet Things By Fi.  I quickly drafted in Fi to make the cake as I knew it would be amazing and she would be excited with this brief. 
Fi of course came up trumps and the wedding cake was absolutely delightful.  It was beautifully decorated with stop watches, mice and vintage style teacups.

The other star of the show, and we will have more photos soon, was my fairy berries, which amazingly were ordered from Washington on the Tuesday and were here on the Thursday. A big hats off to this supplier as it was going to be a risk to get them here on time but I was determined!  I think in the mist of memory a bit hats off to to DHL as well!

We will showcase more of Nigel and Olivia´s wedding soon, I am rather looking forward to seeing Nigel´s wedding car which apparently was a giant hotdog on wheels?!

I would like to send my hugest thanks to Joseba Sandoval and his beautiful wife, Mar, who bravely came along to photograph us setting up this wedding.  

We were running at this point on pure adrenalin, having been up all night, and they were patiently following us around and around the venue trying to take photos of our details.  

I have worked with Joseba now a few times and I am sure he thinks I am completely mad!

My hats off to Joseba and Mar, they are a gorgeous couple and amazing photographers and had they not patiently followed us around for the afternoon we would not be able to share these images with you.

If you would like to see Joseba´s beautiful weddings please do hop over to his website.

We will post more of this wedding soon, these are just a few of the details we created for the day that we thought we would be fun to share with you 🙂 

Pierre Richardson Photography

We recently had the pleasure of working with Pierre Richardson Photography
in June at one of our weddings.  

Pierre´s photo journalistic style combined with an eye for art produces some beautiful images that have earned him recognition within the wedding industry and have been featured in many publications and magazines.

I love being able to see what inspires people, particularly anyone in the art industry and Pierre´s inspiration and soul is beach, I can spot this a mile away as it is also mine!

The fact he lives in Tarifa as well is a dead give away and any of his clients that book Pierre for their wedding will also have the opportunity to visit Tarifa, near his fabulous home, for an hour´s beach shoot complimentary with his full wedding photography package.

With all the latest hype on the trash the dress shoots I could not think of a more perfect setting than on the white beaches of Tarifa, with the backdrop of the African continent, for a more romantic place to trash that dress!

To find out more about Pierre Richardson do pop over to his website or his Facebook page and we hope we will see more of Pierre on our blog with some amazing trash that dress photos!

Intimate Wedding La Virginia, Marbella

June 10th, 2013 Posted by Delightful details, Florists in Marbella, Styling Weddings, Weddding Photographers in Spain, wedding planners Marbella, Wedding Stationery Marbella, Wedding Stationery Spain 0 thoughts on “Intimate Wedding La Virginia, Marbella”
What can I say, but we love weddings and there is nothing more alarming and challenging than being sent a table seating plan for over 100 people at 1am in the night before a wedding to design, create and print read for the morning 🙂

But once a bride is forgiven and has since become a fabulous wedding planner and a good friend and even sent me creme eggs to win forgiveness 3 years later, you can imagine my delight when the aforementioned bestest bride recommended us to one of her family members to help them plan and decorate their gorgeous intimate wedding here in Marbella.  

We were delighted when Emma Jane and Paraic hired us and loved planning and creating their special day here at the stunning La Virginia church this week followed by a wedding reception dinner at the La Virginia restaurant.

We thought we would share some of the pretty details we created for Emma Jane.  
Our brief was she was wearing a vintage lace style dress and her sister who was the bridesmaid would be wearing champagne.

Combined with the stunningly beautiful setting of La Virginia we created a simple but elegant style and I incorporated a bit of colour into the menus using a bougainvillea design as the venue and its surroundings are covered in this beautifully Mediterranean flower.

The tables were dressed with tea coloured vintage Spanish lace table runners and we used the altar arrangement from the church for the dining table combined with two smaller floral arrangements and surrounded them with silver mercury tealights.

We provided blush coloured napkins tied with champagne satin ribbons to set off the table and insert the bougainvillea menus into.

The end result was beautiful and we are delighted to share these images with you from Pierre Richardson photography.
Our congratulations to Emma Jane and Paraic on such a special day.

Our congratulations as well to Claire and Jonathan as they are expecting their first child.

I was told a wedding stylist is for life recently by Chris and Faye, one of our 2011 bestest couples, as I was set the task of shopping for cots in Ikea and again it appears this applies!  Just wondering if Claire is going to email me asking for cots shortly, just hoping it will not be at 1am at night 🙂

If you wish to see Claire´s beautiful website and hire one of the best wedding planners in Ireland do hop over to White Sage Events.  Claire now has table seating plans down to a fine art!
