This beautiful wedding of Adeline and Philippe from Paris was set in one of my favourite places in Spain, the charming historical town of Carmona, situated just outside Seville.
I fell in love with Carmona two years ago and seize every opportunity to visit this town.
We are going there in January to celebrate my father´s 80th as he has listened to my stories about this wonderful place and decided this is where he wishes to host his birthday celebrations! 🙂
I am not sure what is special about Carmona or what I can put a finger on, but it oozes Andalucian charm and history with every other building in the town being a historical church, it has a pretty town square and is also the home to a very impressive Parador and equally impressive tapas bars! The people are friendly and the food is amazing.
White beans with squid are to die for and lamb cutlets served with tiny roast potatoes,
I have not had such a nice meal for a long time in Spain.
You can imagine my delight when Adeline and Phillipe contacted us to help them organise their wedding at the Casa de Carmona, a historical XVI building converted into a boutique hotel by Felipe Guardiola.
The ceremony was hosted in the beautiful inner courtyard at the Casa de Carmona and then our wedding party were taken to the stunning Parador in Carmona for the cocktails, sherry and jamon tasting and an icecream cart 🙂
The guests were transported back to the Casa de Carmona on Sevillian horses with carts for a wonderful meal followed by dancing in the Loggia room by the pool.
The setting and town for me was perfect and so far away from the tourist Spain, it was a beautiful wedding for a charming couple and we are delighted we were part of their day. Our entire team went up to oversee the wedding and had a wonderful time as we were hosted by a very friendly town and the charming locals who were very interested in what we were doing there!
Carla did an amazing job with the planning, Loraine and Maureen transformed the Casa de Carmona with their floristry skills and I oversaw the design and styling of the whole event from the little details to pashminas tied with ribbons to the placecards set out on an antique table and the gorgeous Order of Service booklets.
A fantastic team, a beautiful wedding and very happy clients.
