We have created many weddings here in Spain and I do love Happy Weddings!
Hanne and Eivind contacted us last year to help them organise their dream wedding day at their favourite venue. They were immediately surprised to hear their venue was located just at the bottom of the hill where I live!
After purchasing their Spanish piece of heaven vacation home a few years ago, they have spent many magical moments and memories at this delightful beach restaurant which is literally on their doorstep, as well as mine!, and of course it had to be their perfect wedding location to share their special day with close family and friends.
Living in Norway, with very busy lives, Hanne and Eivind realised they needed help to pull this together, whilst they had their dream venue, everything else needed to be put into place and organised for them.
We set to and worked with the venue, who are not a wedding venue but a beach restaurant, and created a wedding plan including a pre wedding fiesta style party in Hanne and Eivind’s community bar and a post wedding lunch and also to style and design their wedding day and parties they were hosting for their guests during their stay here.
We used happy flowers, simple coral gerberas to compliment the bridesmaids dresses and some amazingly huge white peonies, scented rosemary and we also picked some of Hanne’s favourite yellow flowers from the beach with the most aromatic smell, very reminiscent of the beach and difficult to describe, with all these beautiful flowers we created the tablescapes along with simple glassware, white candles and silver mercury tealights.
Hanne and Eivind have a treasured family logo from his parents that is also their initials so Hanne had a stamp created that we used on the tags for the tables and also as a projected logo for their wedding day.
We hung lots of beautiful silver mercury glass lanterns from the trees and the beach was lined with bamboo torches. The celebrations continued well into the night with sky lanterns and fireworks.
And what a dream it was, I loved everything about this wedding, Hanne was such a happy person, so warm and full of charm. Her voice is beautiful and I loved chatting to her on Skype, I have since spoken to my Norwegian neighbours who have told me the singalong voice is very Southern Norway apparently and I found it lifted me just listening to her beautiful voice!
A touching and beautiful sand ceremony was conducted by Eivind’s brother followed by a cocktail in the gardens of this gorgeous location. Dinner was held by the sand dunes and the children were happily playing all night on a well lit beach. There were so many magical moments from the sky lanterns to the fireworks and of course much dancing, good Spanish food and merriment!
Our thank you to Joseba and Mar from Romance Weddings for sharing these fabulous photos with us, to Carla for organising everything so beautifully, and our congratulations to Hanne and Eivind, such a charming couple, for trusting us to organise and style their magicial beach wedding.
A huge well done to me for being able to type this blog post with a very sore thumb that is now almost twice the size of my other one so also feeling happy!!
