When Karina got in touch with me to tell me her little brother was getting married I was so delighted to hear from her as I had decorated her wedding many years ago at La Cabane, Los Monteros hotel. I met with Simon and Maria, we chose a fabulous beach side villa, organised all the suppliers and were ready to roll out their wedding when disaster struck.(more…)
Here at Reviva Weddings we are super excited to be entering 2019 and finishing the planning of many of our gorgeous weddings this year.
We are also still getting lots of enquiries which is amazing, but with only a few dates left we are now turning weddings down which is a shame, but we do always recommend other planners we know and work with.
2020 is also really busy so if you are considering a wedding in Spain I would recommend you start planning as soon as you can.
As we draw a close to 2018 I love to take time to reflect not just on my business, but my life, as they are totally connected.
I adore what I do, so for me, it isn’t work, it is me, I live and breathe what I do each day. Anyone that knows me personally says this and often tells me to take a break! The only time I do is at Christmas as I am like an excited child and just love this time of year! Give me glitter and fairy lights and I am in heaven!
One of the things I love most about our weddings are the speeches. I have listened to some amazing ones during my 12 years of wedding planning. Some are hilariously funny and others really thought-provoking and tear-jerking.
Your wedding speeches are one of the highlights during your wedding day, they connect your guests as they listen to stories, they gain more of an insight into your lives with your family and close friends and it makes them happy they are celebrating your special day with you. Speeches do bring a closeness and warm fuzzy feeling into the dynamics of a wedding day. (more…)
I always love theming up our weddings, not just the decor, but the food and drinks.
Coming from a family that celebrates any event going, yes even Eurovision themed nights, it is no wonder I have always loved hosting parties and my job is creating weddings and celebrations. It is deep rooted!
My gorgeous sister is also the proud author of her latest book, the Rose Cocktail book which you can buy on Amazon, and it is full of delicious Rose drinks and cocktails. Her book was a big seller this summer with over 10,000 copies sold since its publication in May 2018.
There are many beautiful venues in Marbella and we are fortunate to have worked in almost all of them during our 11 years of creating weddings.
This venue, however, was on my wedding bucket list, I have visited it many times, at first when it was called Silks, and then finally it was taken over by the Trocadero Group who have created such a unique space.
Think of laid-back colonial style with a safari theme, dark woods, beautiful furnishings, cosy corners for the winter with log fires and a stunning setting on the beach surrounded by palm trees.
It seems light years ago now we created this stunning photographers workshop at the end of April. A week after this shoot I hit the ground running as we started our wedding season with weddings in Barcelona and Seville! It is only now I am able to pop up for air to share this wonderful experience with you! (more…)
It seems a lifetime ago we created this fabulous styled shoot at the Cortijo Pedro Jimenez in Casares.
I have been meaning to blog this for ages as this shoot was in February but March arrived and we were full on with our real weddings. We had a lovely exciting month of new bookings, client visits, food tastings, suppliers meeting, etc before the Easter holidays.
Well, with two weeks to go we are beyond excited as we finalise all the glorious details for our first styled wedding photographers workshop here in Andalucia.
With a whole host of amazing suppliers contributing to The Andalucian Lake Workshop set in the most fabulous location on the Istan Lakes, plus an hugely talented creative team, it really is going to be head turning! I never do anything by halves and presented with a challenge I will always go for it!
