A Colorful Wedding in Barcelona

Does it get any better than a stunning wedding in Spain? Short answer: no, no it doesn’t. Just take one peek at the pretty Diez & Bordons captured as proof. Because when you’ve got the talented Detallerie on hand planning every detail to perfection you know you’re in for a real treat. See it all in The Vault!

Al Fresco

From DetallerieGrace and Chris a truly genuine couple, the bride from Hong Kong and the groom from London, who were looking for a wedding which was far from the classic English style celebrations. So they chose Detallerie to be their wedding planners to make their dreams come true.

Grace was radiant with her two Otaduy pieces which Detallerie helped her find and they also styled her with a blue and peach bouquet: the chosen colours for the rest of the wedding. Detallerie created a space for the ceremony in the shade of a mulberry where they left Chinese parasols as a nod to Grace’s family heritage. Following the ceremony, they celebrated with the ‘tea ceremony’ in a more intimate setting for close family, which is a tradition in China.

They enjoyed canapes, in particular the Jamon which was adored by all, in the garden. Detallerie also prepared an area where they could play a game of petanca, a game that has become a tradition in their family. They had dinner out on the patio of the house, making sure the blue linens and the peach colours were at the center stage of it all. Detallerie designed the graphics for them and used peaches to support the hand written calligraphy place cards. As a surprise, an animated and fun live band were waiting for them in the dance area to kick off the dancing! They danced to the best pop-rock songs until the early hours of the morning.

The Chicest Bridal Boudoir Shoot We’ve Ever Seen

The older I get, the more I believe in slowing down. There’s beauty in the process, just as much as the destination, and that rings true on your wedding day. This shoot by Audra Wrisley captures all that and the details are to die for. With a variety of looks (this chic leotard is my favorite) and a halo braid, the style of this whole shoot is hitting high note after high note. See it all in our Vault right this way!

From Audra WrisleyA wedding day takes so much preparation, and once the day arrives it often passes in the blink of an eye! Slowing down to soak in all the details is crucial. This fashion editorial from Barcelona portrays those quiet moments of a bride getting ready, before going out into the whirlwind of her wedding day.

For this shoot, we had the pleasure of photographing the stunning new designs by Spanish fashion house Cortana, paired with luxury lingerie pieces by the renowned Andres Sarda. These Barcelona based brands are the epitome of the city’s forward thinking fashion scene for brides, that has brought impeccably designed but wearable creations to the international stage.

The Monument Hotel hosted our shoot, located in the heart of the city on Passeig de Gracia, which provided a modern backdrop for the shoot full of charming Catalan architectural features. This recently opened 5 star luxury hotel presents a similarly progressive vision, and also treasures Barcelona’s heritage by incorporating pre-modernist influences in their beautiful spaces.

All pieces are accompanied by sophisticated floral designs by Gang and the Wool, accentuating the garments’ fabric, textures and colors.

A Destination Wedding Planned From Across the World

If you’re intimidated by the idea of planning a wedding abroad, take notes from this couple, DJ and Lauren. They coordinated their big day on the Spanish island of Mallorca via emails and Skype and did it all without breaking a sweat. Ana Lui captured the pretty from beginning to end with even more to see inside The Vault.


From Ana Lui PhotographyDJ and Lauren met through mutual friends while out in Chicago (where Lauren is originally from). They both were in relationships at the time but stayed in touch and reconnected a couple of years later when the timing was right. DJ was living between Dallas and Chicago and Lauren was living in Chicago. They had a long-distance relationship for a year before Lauren decided to make the move down south (to Dallas) to be closer to DJ.

They chose to get married in Mallorca at beautiful Belmond La Residencia in Deia, which is a small village in the mountains. DJ took Lauren to Deia a few years back and she fell in love with the place.

Since the wedding took place in Spain and was mostly outdoors, the bride and groom really wanted to have a rustic feel. The hotel was an old olive press so they have chosen olive branches incorporated into everything from the bouquets to table settings to the bridesmaid’s headdresses.

For flowers, Lauren chose white roses and freesia flowers with olive foliage. Lauren is more of a minimalist and didn’t want anything to take away from the beautiful backdrop and location. The dinner area was decorated with fresh lemons hand picked from the hotel gardens.

When I asked Lauren about her experience with getting married abroad and planning the wedding via emails and Skype she said it wasn’t as stressful as I thought it would be. Deia is a small village, so allocating the guests and getting everyone out there was pretty straight forward.

From the Bride…To say I was surprised when DJ proposed is an understatement. I had absolutely no idea, which made the day incredibly special and memorable. The proposal took place at DJ’s parent’s house in the country in Scotland. We were taking a walk through the forestry on their property, which is a common activity we both enjoy when we are in Scotland when I noticed he was being a bit quieter than usual. The sun was close to setting and we came to a beautiful little lake. I turned around and he held out the box with the ring. The rest of the evening was a blur.

I never experienced anything like it. It was so peaceful and beautiful yet unpretentious. After thinking of places that had a special meaning to us, Deia stood out.

The best decision was to get married in the church. There were other places we could’ve had the ceremony on the property and around Deia that would’ve been pretty but the church was incredibly historic and beautiful.
