From Dreamcatcher Productions… This wedding film was a gift to my new sister in law, the bride, Fiona & my brother the groom, Ronan. Fiona & Ronan met in our home town of Lahinch, on the west coast of Ireland close to 10 years ago. Fiona studied fashion design and is now a London based make-up artist. She designed her own dress.

Ronan is a fashion photographer and fell in love with Deia during many fashion photo shoots along the stunning coast. They choose this location for the stunning quaint little town and it’s super hospitable people, many who are now their friends.

So many of our friends and family came together to make this very special wedding so personal. From beautiful music in the church to decorating the venue with insta-snaps to a rocking DJ who knew the couples taste perfectly. It was a week long party of delicious food & wine. Exploring the stunning coastline along those super fun but crazy roads, rounds of golf & villa parties with sing-songs until dawn. I may be just a little bias but it was one of the best weddings I’ve ever been to and had the pleasure of filming.

Pantone’s Color of the Year Sparkles in Ibiza

Close your eyes and pinch yourself. Now open them and guess what? This really is real. This stunning styled shoot, captured by Oliver Fly and created by a talented team that includes Majenia, Laetitia C., Nice Plume and more, is what destination dreams are made of. From the scenery to the chic gowns, these images can’t be beat – see them all in our Vault here and let the wanderlust commence!

From Oliver Fly Photography… Rose Quartz is a symbol of gentle love and beauty.

The fair and lovely gemstone, with its gentle pink essence is a stone of the heart, a crystal of unconditional love. It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort.

A fantastic landscape provided the perfect setting for this wanderlust captured in the Baleares on Ibiza Island’s most scenic cliff in front of the iconic fantasy Es vedra Rock where the magic happened.

The mystical Es Vedra dominated the scene and legends surround this uninhabited rock. This dreamy exclusive destination wedding shoot, inspired by a Mediterranean Goddess came from our dreams where each of the team members provided his own gemstone to this breathtaking coastal shoot. We opted for a soft color palette that won over our hearts, coming from Rose Quartz, Pantone’s color of the year, to different subtle shades of pinks, and antique gold.

This island has spectacular natural beauty and this natural display is a big yearly highlight. This shoot takes advantage of the season with the end of the winter as at that time of the year, in February all around the island, the almond trees are blooming with their pretty pinkish-white blossoms and sweet perfumed fragrance. Beautifully styled with an exquisite elegance and romance, Majenia Design talently provided an exceptional atmosphere and a delicious beauty to this photo shoot bringing our vision to life.

Nature at its best with floral arrangements composed by fresh almond blossoms, stock, carnations, pepper berries and lisianthus, assembled with some greenery with grey leaved cistus from the wild coast. Some pepper berries and gorgeous delicate almond blossoms were incorporated with perfection, harmony and love by Laetitia C. Fleur d’atelier, that she sublimated into the decor all along the story to bring a fabulously and magical touch of soft pink. Sublimating the settings, we worked with some beautiful textures and details into the Rose Quartz stones, pink marble, marvelous silk ribbons, table runner and tablescape.

To reflect the supreme beauty of a Goddess flattering silhouette, the bride was dressed by Cortana, a Spanish bridal designer, with an asymmetric bias cut silk sateen wedding dress with open back and gathered waist. Dominating the Mediterranean Sea, this dress embraced the divine curves of her body and was beautifully adorned with timeless accessories such as a stunning headband, headpieces and veil from Orchidée de Soie. The voluptuous femininity and the natural beauty of our adorable, elegant bride has been magnified by the flawless work of our hair and makeup artist Fanny & Co.

From the fabulous textured yellow gold wedding bands to unique fairmined jewelry with a stunning luminous solitaire engagement ring from Paulette à Bicyclette combined with a Mrs. Box ring box, there was so much illuminating beauty.

To highlight the destination wedding inspiration, the talented Nice Plume Calligraphie designed the complete custom stationery suite in the Spanish language with a modern and romantic handwritten typography including a unique illustration with the mystic rock of Es Vedra in the inside of the envelope. Some white organic style handmade nepalese papers and tracing papers in Pantone’s Rose Quartz was the perfect display to reflect the soft pink tones from the overall theme.

The cocktail settings were designed with a pure elegance of pink Champagne and raspberry also called « Champán con frambuesas » in Spanish, and was still complemented by our lovely pink quartz stones, pepper berries and almond blossoms.

Inspired from the beauty of nature and fine art, the enchanting wedding cake was delicately placed on a table draped with shade of pink silk chiffon. For this special occasion, we imagined delighting our wedding guests with a sumptuous cake styled straight from the imagination from Majenia Design and Laetitia C. Fleurs d’atelier with some fabulous details and decorated with gold-painted honestly plant and pepper berries. As we say in French: “La cerise sur la gâteau!”

From The Bride…Ibiza has always been the first choice for our wedding destination. After coming to this magical island for many years, it has become a second home to us. We initially came for the music, but quickly discovered that there is much more to the “white isle” than super clubs and boat parties! With its strong spiritual presence, beautiful beaches and locals with a zest for life and adventure, we were hooked for life! And it certainly goes without saying, Ibiza was an easy place to entertain forty of our closest friends and family!

The concept for the wedding was simply to pick a place that encompassed all of the things we love about the island! Experimental Beach, with its amazing location, relaxed boho vintage vibe, and beautiful private beach with spectacular views of Es Vedra was the perfect choice. We wanted to add a little bit of New York sparkle to the space and make it, for lack of a better term, “Art-Deco-Boho-Glam!” Thankfully, the venue already had its own interesting details and we simple added an assortment of vases in silver, gold, and rose gold with a mixture of white flowers and succulents. We brought some of our own vintage details from home and added an abundance of candles and soft blue lighting to add more romance to the space in the evening!

My dress designer was by Pnina Tornai from Kleinfeld Bridal in New York with footwear from Manolo Blahnik! Len’s suit was conceptualized and first fitted by Ostojenka Bespoke Atelier in Moscow and made by Príncipe D’Eleganza of Naples with footwear from Corthay!
