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…)
I love the summer mornings here in Spain when you know the day is going to be a hot one, it has a magical quality in the air before the heat sets in. People scurry around getting things done before it gets too hot and this of course involves buying bread and stopping for a cafe!
This year has been quite kind to us, yes it is hot here and I have spent the summer with wet hair and constantly dabbing myself down but I can’t say I have suffered extreme heat apart from an August wedding in Seville!(more…)
On the 11th April, the threatened rain disappeared and the sun shone for our Luxe Botanical Styled Shoot at the beautiful location of the Hacienda Nadales in Malaga. The week leading up to the styled shoot was spent constantly checking my phone weather app but was reassured by Jeremy with his very hi-tech swirling cloud app it would be fine, and it was
I couldn´t be happier as we woke up to blue skies and sunshine.(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!
Here in Spain, Christmas has well and truly arrived, the shops are full of decorations, supermarkets are proudly presenting their hanging jamons, the famous Spanish turron is stacked high and every conceivable roundabout and walkway is planted with poinsettias.
It is so festive, Spanish style, I just love it!
Spain is a very popular destination wedding country with its fabulous weather, super easy access from all over the world and I just love and totally connect with my clients that adore this country as much as I do and want to host their weddings here.
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.
Wow, wow, wow is all I can say! What a most amazing weekend and awesome wedding!
Situated in the hills above Sitges, just outside Barcelona, Julia and Brian chose to host their destination wedding at the beautiful historical Masia, the Casa Felix and what a fabulous week they had! (more…)
Our 2018 wedding season started with one of my famous road trips to the cosmopolitan town of Sitges.
After a year of planning, emailing and chatting I was really excited to be finally meeting Whitley and Francisco as they had never visited Spain and I could not wait to see what everyone thought of the country I fell in love with as a small child! The fact they had taken a huge leap of faith, after abandoning their wedding plans in the States, made it even more awesome they were jumping onto a plane to host their wedding in a completely different country!
