Garden Romance in the South of Spain

Spain is bringing it right now. Or more precisely, this destination wedding in the South of Spain with dreamy photography by Joseba Sandoval is bringing it. And these just might be the prettiest nuptials ever, ever. A Claire Pettibone floral gown, garden glamour details by Mar Sandoval like you wouldn’t believe and all with a layer of undeniable romance. See even more here including a cake by Sweet Things By Fi seriously too pretty to eat.


The co-ordination and styling of this wedding at Hotel Villa Padierna, South of Spain came once our bride chose an amazing Claire Pettibone dress.

It was great how we all came together to create and play with a little added creative styling from the stunning backdrops roses and centerpieces for the table to the hat arrangements for the guests.

The wedding was all based around the concept of the wedding gown, which was all translated into each look across all the elements such as the makeup, flowers, wedding cake, venue and overall styling.

For the wedding we had the pleasure to work along side the most talented wedding suppliers (see below for credits) from the Costa del Sol, who helped translate the concept into reality.

Spanish Wedding at Villa Padierna Palace Hotel

This wedding is the reason that destination weddings are soooo very awesome.  The scenery, the elegant vibe, the perfect weather… it honestly couldn’t be any prettier.  Add in a bride and groom who are all sorts of adorable and a talented team of vendors (think Sweet Things By FiJoseba Sandoval and Reviva Weddings) and it’s one seriously great way to spend a Tuesday.  See it all here.


From Joseba Sandoval… I met Sarah one year ago through Laura Charles, one of the best wedding planners in Marbella. Since then, she told me about her future plans and a little bit after that she contacted me to shoot her wedding in Marbella from Leeds, UK.

Their wedding was in one of the best hotels in the world. Here, Michelle Obama and her daughter Sasha, were on vacation in Andalucia residing at the luxurious five-star Ritz Carlton Hotel Villa Padierna, in the municipality of Benahavís near Estepona and Marbella.

I really have no words to thank her not just for her trust, but also for her friendship and her gratitude towards my work. Thanks so much for everything and your friendship Sarah and Ruben, you have a friend forever here!
