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…)

Magical Fairy Woodland Garden Wedding Sotogrande

As the Andalusian summer heat has finally left us behind and autumn arrives drawing 2015 to a close, we are super excited now to be sharing our year’s work with you having created many fabulous weddings during what has been an incredibly hot and busy summer.  

Some of our weddings seem to take forever to get photos and sadly a handful of clients do not like to share their wonderful weddings which is such a shame but of course we have the relaxed clients that are happy for us to share their gorgeous days otherwise we would have a very barren blog :)!

Only last weekend we were busy working on Anna and Jeff’s beautiful fairy woodland wedding in Sotogrande and are delighted to be able to share these photos with you so quickly thanks to Anna Gazda, the super speedy photographer!

Anna and Jeff met with us last year at their chosen venue, having already been recommended us, we were hired immediately to help them create their dream day.  Anna wanted a fairy woodland theme to blend with her romantic venue and she knew we were the right team to do this for her with our renown fabulous rustic signs, fairy lights and attention to the details and styling of our dreamy weddings.

We had a lot of fun working with Anna, Isabel quickly put all the planning logistics into place so whilst the majority of everything was done there were a few last minute details to sort out as the whole wedding came together and resulted in a completely perfect magical day.   

The ceremony was set under the cool shade of the trees by the polo grounds and we decorated this area with a rustic aisle runner using just gypsophila for the arch with silver buckets full of gypsophila to line the aisle.   We used our vintage table for the ceremony which was beautifully conducted by Allan Davies and the whole setting was just beautifully pretty and romantic.

A lemonade station was set up to greet the guests along with our hand crafted paddle fans and we used moss and some of our signs to style the area along with some very cute woodland floral arrangements.  Anna and Jeff had organised for a surprise polo match to be played out on the fields for their guests during the cocktail hour which was a huge hit and had a charming air of peace about it as we all watched the horses.

In this day the wind was really quite strong and we were aware that gusts of up to 40 miles per hour were predicted so just as we were setting up the ceremony we had to abandon any ideas of the floral straws in the lemonade jars and everything was being glued and nailed down having had our table seating plan crash which was quickly re-stuck and assembled!  

By this time with a gale practically blowing my stress levels were pretty high having already had a crash on route to the wedding and when my team arrived to greet me in I was not in the best of moods so you can imagine how it got when the table seating plan and arch blew over but we quickly rescued everything along with some heavy rocks, very strong double sided tape and long nails!

We hired in wooden tables which worked beautifully with the rustic venue and dressed these with our gold sequin table runners to add some glamorous sparkle and created a stunning tablescape using florals in gold pots created by Loraine along with our gold hurricane lanterns and tealights.

Dancing under the stars is always permitted at this venue and the party carried on until the early hours in the garden under a starry sky and lots of magical twinkle.  Rob the DJ kept everyone on the dance floor and our chill out was created using local haystacks covered with throws and some glittery cushions.

The beautiful cakes were designed by Sweet Things by Fi and our thank you to all our suppliers who worked hard to make this wedding come together.

Finally our congratulations to Anna and Jeff and we wish we could work with you both all over again!

A Starry Night in Sotogrande

July 15th, 2014 Posted by Elegant Weddings in Spain, Vintage Furniture Hire for weddings in Spain, Wedding Planners Spain, Weddings in Sotogrande 0 thoughts on “A Starry Night in Sotogrande”

Mix a lot of Australians with a crowd of Irish and throw in a golden wheelbarrow full of beer and you have a party made!  What a lot of fun this fabulous wedding was of Shanelle and Paddy, held in the picturesque grounds of the polo club in Sotogrande.

You may recall, for our avid followers, the sad tale of Shanelle and Paddy’s friends who were horrifically attacked earlier this year and sadly one of them could not make it to the wedding but everyone was there from as far afield as Australia, to help Shanelle and Paddy celebrate their memorable wedding day.

Shanelle had of course been sidetracked before her wedding so she left us to sweat over the details!  We had a lot of fun creating this gorgeous wedding, using a lace, gold and pearl theme with blush, pale pink and ivory colours.  Shanelle was up for anything that was going to make her smile on her big day, from a retro sweet candy bar for a sweet toothed Paddy, to giant balloons, the hugely popular flips flops and fun photo booth.

After a beautiful church ceremony, we headed off to the polo grounds to enjoy a cocktail under the trees, here we kept the details more rustic with some of Isabel’s wonderfully creative signs, a lovely table seating plan made on a wooden background using a selection of our frames, the famous golden wheelbarrow full of iced beers and of course we managed to throw in a bit of sparkle with our gorgeous gold sequin table runners on the cocktail tables.

The dinner and dancing was up at the main restaurant and set in a marquee, although we were at the end of May, the evenings here can still be chilly and a marquee was a good excuse to add in some more sparkle and twinkle with fairy lights and chandeliers.  The sparkle and twinkle continued to the tables which were dressed with ivory vintage lace runners, gold charger plates, , soft pink blush napkins which matched the gold tiffany seat covers, mirrors with beautiful blush, ivory and pink floral arrangements on, vintage style gold frames for table names and finished off with strings of pearls and gold tealights.

The team at Cancha, headed up by Justo were amazing, the food was delicious and the party got into full swing with Monkey Tennis leading the music followed by Rob the DJ, who was in heaven having been positioned again near the candy bar!  Guests were entertained all evening and had a ball at the photo booth.

This was a perfect wedding day for such deserving clients, we had a ball, the whole day was filled with laughter and smiles with such a fun crowd all having a lovely time.  A congratulations to our fabulous suppliers whom without their professionalism and experience we could not create our dream weddings.   

Andreas Holm for these awesome photos, Rebecca Louise for her video, Sweet Things by Fi for her stunning vintage and pearl wedding cake, Amanda Rosa and Matt McGurk for their beautiful music, Chez Vous for their teccie things and lighting!, Pedro Navarro for his beautiful chairs, Justo and his team for the catering and Monkey Tennis and Rob the DJ for keeping everyone partying until the early hours.
