I’m pretty sure Gabriel Navas stepped into a fantasy world when he photographed this destination celebration; the views along are breathtaking. Caprichia Weddings & Occasions took Marbella’s natural beauty and added the perfect rustic touches, allowing Herz Films to capture a work of art for us to enjoy. While we all may not be able to escape to Spain, these treats below might be the next best thing.
From The Bride… Oliver and I met in Marbella while I had been visiting my parents during a university holiday break eight years ago. Ever since, we have been coming back to Spain several times a year and Marbella quickly became our “special place” which now almost feels like a home away from home. So we didn’t have to think twice when it came to picking our wedding location. With its perfect climate, beautiful nature, and given our very special personal history, Marbella was the ideal place for our summer destination wedding. We wanted an alfresco ceremony and celebration and simply loved the idea of spending some quality time at the beach with all our closest friends and family prior to the big day.
For the wedding itself we envisioned an intimate and elegant affair with great music and lots of amazing food. Having a great & memorable night with all our friends was the number one priority. So we were looking for a venue offering enough privacy and allowing us to dance under the stars until the early morning hours. When our wedding planner Lucia first showed us around the Finca we were blown away by the breathtaking views and landscape. It was the most perfect backdrop and more than we had dreamt of.
We kept the décor very classic and chic and added just a few rustic touches to incorporate the natural surroundings of the venue. The reception was set amidst gorgeous olive trees, decorated with hanging fairy lights and chandeliers. We chose a soft white and nude palette with hints of green, as we wanted everything to look very organic and natural against the background of the dramatic mountain panorama and olive tree groves.
We flew in the most amazing band from Berlin, who kept our multicultural German-Russian-Jewish crowd dancing all night long. Our caterer created an incredibly delicious wedding menu including show cooking stations and the most insane dessert buffet featuring all kinds of cakes, chocolates, mousses and macarons you could possibly imagine. Thanks to Lucia and her incredibly talented team, every little detail of the day was perfectly planned and put together with so much taste and elegance. Everyone worked so hard to turn our vision and ideas into the best and most beautiful day of our lives. Looking back it still feels like the most amazing dream and we are so happy to have shared this memory with so many of our friends and family members.
