This past week Spain has had a heatwave, which is unusual for the middle of June, but temperatures have risen to the 40’s inland and over 30 on the coast.  This, my lovelies, is shade temperature 🙂

Many of my past clients have said to me “don’t worry we have nothing but clouds and rain here and are looking forward to seeing some sunshine and blue skies”.

Well this ain’t pleasant sunshine and blue skies, this is searingly fierce heat, it is like being locked in a sauna for the day!

We love watching the new trends to ensure we are always up to date with our wedding styling and tonight I quickly put together this style board with concrete inspirations found on Pinterest.

As the industrial look hit the interiors world a few years ago we adored the polished concrete kitchen worktops and I was pleased to see the use of marble and stone come back with a vengeance as my entire house has marble floors that I never really liked but now they are bang up to trend! (more…)

We like to think we are ahead of trends but last night I was chatting away to one of my favourite brides and she asked me if we could find a Selfie Mirror for her wedding here in September?!

I was clueless and admit I had no idea what this was, so Mary sent me a link, she had seen it at a wedding show in Ireland and said it was really very clever.

I love a mission so was straight onto this!

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…)

A Pretty Cool Wedding at Castillo de Santa Catalina, Malaga

October 30th, 2015 Posted by Delightful details, Styling Weddings in Spain, Vintage Furniture Hire for weddings in Spain, Wedding Decorations, Wedding Planners Spain, Weddings in Malaga 0 thoughts on “A Pretty Cool Wedding at Castillo de Santa Catalina, Malaga”
I aptly name this a cool wedding as it was so sparkly and fabulous however anything but cool as the temperatures by the afternoon were sizzling, humid and hitting 50 degrees in the courtyard of the stunning Castillo de Santa Catalina in Malaga.

I could not even move without sweating, in fact not moving promoted sweating so kept making excuses to visit Farah and her girls getting ready in their air conditioned rooms!  

That was a treat in itself watching them merrily prepare for the wedding celebrations with their stunningly beautiful outfits and jewellery.

We had been introduced to Farah by Perfect Spanish Weddings to help her style and decorate her wedding day with a beautiful blush and gold theme and were hyperventilating when she sent us photos of her stunning blush wedding dress, it was absolutely beautiful. 

I worked with Farah to design the wedding decor she really wanted but within her budget constraints to achieve the maximum impact, we focused on the florals, which were very important to her, and added a few details to create an overall luxury design for her wedding day.

The beautiful bouquets were created using hydrangeas and roses along with tall centrepieces using the same florals which were placed on top of tall glassware cylinders filled with gold gypsophelia and blush dyed water.

The table seating plan was designed by us using a Hand of Fatima theme decorated with soft pink and gold crystals and we created matching Hand of Fatima paddle fans for the ceremony which can be seen on our Instagram page. A rather dodgy photo taken by me but we try!

 The tables were beautifully dressed with our gold charger plates and we finished the napkins with blush ribbons and individual place cards again with the Hand of Fatima design to compliment the paddle fans and table seating plan.

Finally we also provided props for the dessert table including a blush sequin table cover, pink cake stands and glass apothecary jars.

It was a wonderful day and our thanks to Perfect Spanish Weddings for recommending us to design and decorate Farah’s fabulous wedding and to Jeremy Standley for these gorgeous photos to share with you.

You will be pleased to hear I did not steal any donuts although I was sorely tempted the opportunity did not arise to sneak up and get close to them 🙂

An Indian Wedding in Malaga by Reviva Part 2

November 29th, 2013 Posted by City Weddings in Spain, Indian Weddings, Purple and Gold Wedding, Wedding Planners Spain, Wedding Venues in Spain, Weddings in Malaga 0 thoughts on “An Indian Wedding in Malaga by Reviva Part 2”

We are delighted to share Part 2 of Karin and Rishad´s fabulous wedding held here in Malaga just in time for the weekend.  Following on from a fun filled pre-wedding party the actual wedding day arrived greeted by a gorgeously hot summer day in Malaga with cloudless blue skies.

When you thought a party could get no better, it did!  

The celebrations began with the ceremony on the patio of the Hacienda La Biznaga held under a beautiful white canopy to keep the guests shaded from the hot August Spanish sunshine.  Refreshing lemonades and waters were given to each guest as they arrived and a paddle fan with the Order of Service, beautifully designed by Nulkinulks, was placed on each chair.

The ceremony was followed by a cocktail including an ice cream van to help keep the guests cool and the Hacienda La Biznaga provided lots of delicious canapes.  

All the table seating plans were hanging from the courtyard lanterns and created a beautiful magical effect as they were designed as circular hanging garlands which I had seen on a previous photoshoot by Nulkinulks and wanted to use for Karin´s wedding as I knew she loved hanging garlands and flowers.  The menu was handwritten by Isabel onto a large blackboard in gold and purples, which is always a fabulous idea to save printing menus for every place setting for a larger wedding party.

Dinner followed inside the Hacienda where we designed a more contemporary Sex in the City theme using a gold and purple colour scheme for the wow factor.
The venue was washed in purple lighting and tall glass cylinders topped with purple and white orchid arrangements bought the room to life.   We used gold chairs to pull the colours together and each napkin was tied with a purple ribbon.

The party well and truly got underway with music and lighting from Nigel at Chez Vous and a delicious cake designed by Sweet Things By Fi along with some gold glitter dusted fortune cookies, of which I did not steal one 🙂
We would like to thank all the suppliers who were involved with this wedding and Dan at Chennergy Photography for these photos allowing us to share this fantastic wedding with you.
