Last October I was contacted by the most charming Mother of the Bride about hosting her daughter´s wedding here in Spain.  The family live in Canada but the grooms family are based in Sitges, so this was the area they wished to host their family wedding.

We narrowed down the venues and dates available eventually settling on the stunning location of the Casa Del Mar, an exclusive Mediterranean estate overlooking the sea.

After securing the venue the planning begun with Petra organising catering, entertainment, florals and all the details.

Sarah´s first enquiry with me was in the spring of this year, with less than 5 months to go and a large wedding to organise, she had hit what I always refer to as the ´Wedding Wall´ and she knew I was the only wedding planner here that would envisage her dream and make it come true.

Whilst quite a few suppliers were in place, there was still a lot of work to be done.  With a short engagement combined with a busy date in September set Sarah had also discovered many popular, and easy to find on the internet, suppliers were already booked.

When I met with Sarah, and her charming mother, at their beautiful home in Sotogrande, the location for her wedding, they also explained to me that they wanted the pressure taken off them, someone who knew exactly what they were doing, had experience and to assist and finish the planning, finalise the budget, organise the suppliers and have a team present on the day.

I explained I was already personally booked on their actual wedding day and would be in Barcelona, but I would work with them on the lead up to the wedding and put a team into place to oversee the day.  (more…)

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!

When Ashleigh first got in touch with me from New York, she had already booked the Finca and church in preparation for their wedding in Spain.

The catering was also confirmed but Ashleigh had hit the proverbial ´wedding wall´as I like to call it.  Still required was all the furniture, glassware, linens and decoration plus someone to pull it all together and oversee the day.

I love a challenge and thought how lovely, a beautiful Finca near Iznajar in the middle of June, perfect weather and a stunning location.  This wedding has now gone into my top ten hottest weddings ever as the heatwave we suffered in June drove the temperatures up to the mid forties!  Never have I been so hot without air con to dash into!

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!

When Elaine and Kevin first contacted us it was to help them style and decorate their wedding day, the rest was pretty much booked from the church ceremony to the cocktail and reception at the villa they had hired for the week and Elaine had been picking my brains during her wedding planning to get some help and direction when she was booking suppliers.

Sporrans and Noodles Wedding on the Marbella Lakes

November 19th, 2014 Posted by Music for Weddings, Wedding Planners Spain, Wedding Suppliers on the Costa Del Sol, Wedding venues in Marbella, weddings in private villas 0 thoughts on “Sporrans and Noodles Wedding on the Marbella Lakes”

Chris and Sam contacted us to help them organise their wedding in Spain as we had previously organised their best friends, Katy and Scott’s wedding in 2010 and came recommended.

We were delighted to meet Katy and Scott again complete with firstly a bump at the beginning of the planning, then later a beautiful little boy! It was so lovely to also meet the now doting grandparents again too and with Katy and Scott as best man and bridesmaid, they were of course on duty for the night!

What a lot of fun Chris and Sam were, they instantly fell in love with the villa set on the lakes in Marbella and loved the fact it was private as music was to play a big part of their wedding and partying outside all night was a must for the club lovers!

Having settled quickly on the venue we started planning what I call the sporran noodle wedding, we wanted to combine both the Scottish for Chris with the Chinese for Sam and the overall theme was of course music.  

The catering by Chez Vous combined various different elements of both traditions of food, serving a mix of oriental and Scottish canapes and finishing off the evening with boxes of noodles for midnight snacks.

The decoration and stationery was created with a lot of input from Chris and Sam, using vinyl records as table centrepieces, and Chris had even ordered vinyl record cake stands, which took quite a few of us putting heads together to get them assembled and to stand upright!  

Chris organised the favours to bring in the music theme with musical note placecard holders and stubby holders for beers. 

The tables were simply decorated with purple and orange flowers in glassware, surrounded by some retro coloured tealight holders we found in Casa with Chris and Sam on a shopping trip.

We finished off the decor with lots of lanterns and candles, hung hearts supplied by Sam from the trees and created the table seating plan, again using the record theme and the tables named after famous nightclubs.

The golden wheelbarrow made it’s appearance filled with ice and bottled beers!

Our thanks to all the wonderful suppliers who were part of Sam and Chris’s special day here in Marbella, Kathryn Parr for Hair and Make Up, Julia at Chez Vous for the catering, Monkey Tennis for the entertainment and of course David Toms for the fabulous photographs.

A huge congratulations to Chris and Sam who were such fun to work with and looking forward to meeting with you all next time you are in Marbella!

Norwegian Weddings in Marbella

March 2nd, 2013 Posted by Destination Weddings, Inspiration Boards, Norwegian Weddings in Marbella, Our Weddings, Wedding Colours, weddings in private villas 0 thoughts on “Norwegian Weddings in Marbella”
Our wonderful Mediterranean climate and food combined with the laid back, relaxed Spanish lifestyle proves the perfect getaway for many Northern Europeans escaping colder climates and wishing to enjoy some relaxed sunshine time.

So where better than to host a wonderfully warm celebration with close family and friends than here in Andalucia.  Many of our clients are from the northern hemispheres of Europe including Norway, Holland, Sweden and Belgium, and we love the relaxed nature and disposition of our Northern European clients, and I adore their style!


It is beautifully simple yet elegant and no fuss is anywhere to be seen!  I do follow a lot of fabulous Norwegian and Swedish design blogs, albeit I cannot understand them but I so love their understated decoration and google translate helps 🙂

We have been planning and designing a gorgeous wedding for a charming couple from Norway and their special day starts with a beautiful ceremony at our local Norwegian church followed by an intimate reception at a nearby villa with their family, children and close friends.

I thought I would share some of the inspiration boards created as we have worked on the wedding details using predominantly whites, fresh greens, soft peaches and adding in touches of lavender.



These are working boards assembled for Lolita as we have designed the wedding style and we are so excited about creating a beautiful tablescape, a desert, fruits and nuts bar, a cooling lemonade station and creating stylish tiny details such as decorating the napkins with sprigs of lavender and personalised placecards.

It will be a beautiful wedding celebrated with their close family and friends and of course we will share our photos with you throughout the year of our weddings we plan, create and style.
