Elegant Barcelona Destination Wedding

You know it’s a beautiful wedding with just 5 minutes and 35 seconds of a (stunning) highlight film grabs on to your heart and tears stream down your face. With Yes, I Do behind the planning, I knew I’d love it, but after watching the intimate emotions captured so well by FOCUSLAB, I’m floored, and quite honestly, wiping tears from my eyes.

From FOCUSLAB… Alex and David have lived a lifetime separated just by some blocks in their city, New York, going to the same parties, same restaurants, with some common friends, but without running into each other, but as in all great stories there is something unexpected happened, they met in Spain and this country became important in their story, so they decided to get married there. Alex and David were preparing a wedding that reflected their day-to-day: full of details, stylish and a big celebration for their friends, who have traveled from the States (and all over the world) to be with them. The trip is an important point in their history so they decided to give their guests a unique experience of traveling and visiting a new city.

Furthermore we have to add the warmth of the vows that they read each other and the speeches that their guests, basically best friends and family, gave and that helped us to explain the story of this couple.

From Jimena Roquero PhotographyRuth & Javi knew what kind of wedding they wanted to have. They were sure they want their guests to enjoy a memorable evening and a party they will never forget. Since both of them are super busy professional engineers, they hired the amazing team of Bodas de Cuento to design and coordinate their wedding. When Wendy from Bodas de Cuento showed them the venue they have found for them they were in tears, that was just what they had dreamed of: Monte de Cutamilla, a rustic family house surrounded by mountains, where you can easily find horses and cows pasturing wildly!

They celebrated a beautiful outdoor ceremony and they spared some fresh lemonades at the end of it. They delivered fans and hats to the guests to fight the heat.The table setting and all the decoration was picked with enormous care and taste, and for the dance hour, they even gave their women guests some flip-flops to rest their feet from the high heels! Great idea!! They also gave them a cd with a music compilation with the favorite songs of the couple.

Elegant Ibiza Wedding

An elegant Ibiza wedding with just a touch of Hollywood glamour sounds like what I need to be doing this weekend, but since that’s not yet on my agenda, I think I’ll spend some quality time soaking in this gorgeous affair captured by Gypsy Westwood Photography.  A breathtaking wedding in every which way, it’s a stunning setting meets sweet pastel hues meets one seriously adorable family.  See it all here.

From Gypsy Westwood Photography… This wedding was all about the details. I know Emma had worked very hard on getting the perfect combination with the setting, venue, colours, dress, flowers, tables settings, favours, tags, drinks food (all of it really), not missing out her beautiful self, her son and, of course, husband-to-be!

The venue is actually a friend’s house that is rented in the summer months and is just quite spectacular (the size of the pool,the view over Tagomago). It is called Las Nubes, which it is, in the clouds set high on a hill!! Where they held their ceremony with the view in the backdrop, soft light with the light blue (half stormy) sky and sea with sun breaking through was stunning for my photos!! And to top it off the speeches made you want to cry!

From the Bride… Before we’d even met (and a decade apart), the island of Ibiza was where we both had our first ever holidays away from our parents when we were 17… Andrew’s trip being in 1988 and mine in 1998! Both trips were a very different experience to the side of Ibiza we have since come to love, but the seed was planted nonetheless! We have since re-visited the island as a couple and with friends and can’t deny there is something special about the place. There are frequent moments when you look out at the crystal clear waters, beautiful sunset or when you are chatting with friends over a BBQ that you think that this is what you have waited all year for – times like these, in a place like this. That feeling is something that we wanted to share with our closest friends and family on our wedding day and to enjoy the moment and location that we love so much together.

I had been very much inspired by 1920′s-1930′s Hollywood glamour. I didn’t want it to be too glitzy though and loved the juxtaposition of touches of glamour centred in a naturally beautiful surrounding; an embellished beaded gown and statement red lip (thank you Elizabeth Taylor!) with the simplicity of the wedding set up and tables with crisp white table cloths and a small natural wildflower centre. This really let the natural beauty of the location take centre stage but added a little extra sparkle to fit the occasion.

It sounds so cliché, but the day was everything we’d hoped for, so much time spent on detailing really paid off; studding starfish with crystals until 1 in the morning, handwriting every luggage tag for the table plan, sticking on tiny bits of vintage lace and lining a vintage suitcase with a wallpaper whose colour matched the bridesmaid dresses exactly – things that as I was doing them I was cursing myself for, but I knew it would make all the difference to the overall feel of the day. The whole is only as impactful because of the sum of the parts! There had been huge thunder and lightening storms all week and we were planning on an outside ceremony around the pool so our fantastic wedding planner had quickly whipped up a Plan B in case the heavens opened, but they didn’t! There was beautiful sunshine but not too hot, truly perfect. Now, 3 months on I am still obsessed with looking through the photos and I long to have the day over again. It took us seven years and a little boy before we tied the knot so it was most definitely worth the wait.
