A destination wedding in Seville sounds like a dream, no? Now how about a two day wedding extravaganza filled with faux-bull fighting, a moroccan picnic cocktail hour and beautiful al fresco dining under a Spanish moon – it’s wildly beautiful and all caught on film by Leila Brewster along with the perfect film captured by Elysium Productions. Have a look!
This wedding in Seville, Spain had it all. Bull (toros in spanish!)? check. Gypsy wedding complete with kidnap of the bride?… check. Gorgeous Spanish/Morroccan designed reception in an old olive orchard estate? Check.
Mara & Seb couldn’t think of anywhere better to tie the knot than Seville, Spain where the bride spent many holidays growing up in their family vacation home. And if you are going to have a wedding in such a place steeped in tradition, might as well go all out!
The rehearsal dinner was not so much a dinner as a traditional outing to the local bull fight ring. However there was one major difference. The matadors featured were actually several members of the wedding party! These brave gentleman (and women) barely escaped being wounded by a (not so big) bull and all the guests had a great time cheering them on.
Later, guests watched Mara & Seb take part in a traditional gypsy wedding. (The gypsy culture is alive and well in this part of the world). Of course what would a gypsy wedding be without a kidnap and bribery?
The wedding day was another day full of tradition. Mara wore a beautiful Spanish inspired gown and was topped off by a traditional Spanish head piece. Seb wore a custom suit by Bonobos. The couple did their first look on the top of Hotel Alfonso XIII which had a gorgeous view of the city. From there, the couple rode in a vintage motorcycle (Sidecar) to the Alcazar where they got special permission to shoot some incredible portrait photos!
A bit later It was off to the Iglesia del San Jorge de La Caridad. A gorgeous 15th century church in the middle of Seville where the real ceremony took place. We loved the bridesmaids dresses. All unique and chosen by the gorgeous ladies.
Now the reception takes the cake. Have you seen a more gorgeous setting in your life? Hacienda Molinillos is an old olive mill complete with a fantastic landscape and greenery that would make any guest drop their jaw. On top of that, Mara did an incredible job planning all the details involved from the signs to the morroccan lamps and blankets adorning the cocktail area. The guests had a gourmet (and traditional of course) dinner under the stars and then moved on to another designed area for the party. We can honestly say that this is one wedding that will never be forgotten!!
