A Glamorous Pastel Wedding at Villa Padierna Palace Hotel in Spain

In today’s glamorous Marbella wedding planned by Soul Events, guests dined underneath a canopy of white wisteria and enchanting fairy lights – just the sight of it will completely take your breath away. It’s safe to say Pedro Navarro is a floral genius. The gorgeous bride changed out of her stunning Monique Lhuillier gown to surprise all of their guests by performing a traditional Bollywood dance with a few of her bridesmaids at the reception – how amazing is that?! The entire day of celebrations was all captured by Julia Kaptelova Photography, don’t miss the magic in the full gallery.

From the bride… Amidst the perfect tranquillity of Palazzo Versace in Dubai, our favourite holiday destination, we entered our luxurious suite to a spectacular display of rose petals lit by candlelight overlooked by countless elephant teddies. I had joked that I wanted elephants present if I was proposed to. As my mind rose to realize what might be happening, I turned to see my love on bended knee with my idea of the perfect engagement ring.

We celebrated that night in Burj al-Arab watching the sunset over the Persian Gulf with the twinkling lights of the city as our backdrop. We started looking for venues and in the search for it we came across an amazing image of a beautiful amphitheater. This gave way to shot after pristine shot of a venue that happened to be right beside our holiday home in Marbella, Spain to which we had spent many a summer in.

Within a few weeks we had arranged to visit Villa Padierna and within minutes of being there, we could not be swayed and knew that this Tuscan inspired palace with its courtyard canals and palm sprinkled, manicured grounds, nestled in the hills of Andalucía had to play host to our wedding. The rosy hues of the hotel inspired the pastel palette of blushing peach and pink shades that graced our ceremony. 

Our theme was elegant and glamorous but classic with hushed tones and gold accents. It was important for us to have a strong family element and as such, framed photos of family were favored throughout the venue. In front of our nearest and dearest, we exchanged vows we had written ourselves and solely for each other. Throughout our day music played a huge part of the experience and over dinner our guests were serenaded with classical music played on an ivory grand piano.

Under an immense canopy of white wisteria and magical fairy lights, we took to the white, star lit dance floor for our first dance which ended in the roar of fireworks. Our best memories from the day included a Bollywood dance with two of the bridesmaids choreographed to surprise the guests and incorporate a traditional aspect. Having Pakistani routes, it was important to blend both cultures into the wedding day. The rolling scenery that acted as the backdrop to the perfect toned aesthetics brought to life by our wedding designer Pedro and the staff of Villa Padierna is another fond memory.

The advice we would give to future brides and grooms is that you can never plan enough especially when it comes to the people you chose to bring your wedding vision to life. These people get to know you so well and once you find the right ones to work with, everything becomes doable. Writing your own vows is a special way to share promises and memories with your partner. When the day is over the moment that stands out the most and will be eternally cherished is standing in front of the person you love reciting the deeply personal vows from your own heart, committing to one another wholly and forever.

From the Bride… After 13 years of friendship, and both of us leaving our hometown to travel the world and explore all that it had to offer, Rob and I finally ignited the spark and starting dating. Two years later and after a lot of trials and tribulations Rob asked me to marry him and with many tears I said “Yes!”

The engagement and lead up to the wedding day is a whole other story and one that we used as a creative Save The Date pictogram – You can learn more about how we finally got to the wedding day after 15 years of knowing each other.  The graphic design work was done by a good friend Thera Colquhoun.

When deciding on a location we considered so many options, but Spain for me has always been very special, as I grew up with my father working there (we lived in England) and it was on his last trip to Spain when I was 6-years-old, that sadly he was in a car accident and passed away. Having our wedding in Spain felt like the closest I could be to having him there with us and gave our whole family a chance to view Spain as a happy place once again.

We found our perfect wedding venue when we discovered Rachel Rose Weddings. Rachel is an incredibly talented wedding planner based in Benahavis and as soon as I came across her website and the weddings she had styled, I had tears in my eyes imagining what we could create together. We viewed El Cortijo de los Caballos on a cold and rainy day in November, it was under construction so we had to use our imaginations, but I loved that it felt like an oasis when you walked in and was surrounded by cornfields and mountains. It used to be stables, which have been converted into guest rooms and a cottage with a gorgeous swimming pool, pool bar and garden in the center for everyone to congregate and hang out. I could imagine all the possibilities and we booked our date for September 12th, which was exactly a year after our engagement.

I think my style is bohemian and whimsical; I love nature, wild flowers, moss (my surname is Moss), hummingbirds, flower crowns and dancing barefoot. Whilst my Scottish husband is more traditional, loving all things Scottish, ice-cream, whiskey and cèilidh dancing.

To begin with I decided from the start that I wanted to design and create my own wedding dress and wear something that was truly unique and personal. I never tried on a single wedding dress and instead sketched out some designs of my own and worked with a local dressmaker in Dubai to help me create my vision. I have always been fascinated with hummingbirds since my time living in Panama and on many occasions I have been referred to as one, buzzing around with endless energy from place to place, so I decided I would love to have one on the back on my dress as the main focal point. I wanted the rest of the dress to be simple, but have a bohemian vibe, I also wanted a dress that wasn’t just white, but had details in color. I had chosen a pastel color palette, so I decided on pastel colored flowers on the front and back to tie it all in together. It was an endless job and took almost a year to create with fittings twice a week and endless changes as we watched the dress come together. It is the first time I have ever done anything like this and I have learned so much, I love the dress and so did everyone else, but I think if I was to do it again it could be even better!

Rob is Scottish so really wanted to wear a kilt, but as it was mid-summer in Spain he decided that it would be too hot. We decided together that we would like an informal and casual ‘rustic’ vibe and so chose linen for both him and the groomsmen. We designed a 3-piece suit in pale blue linen and had it made by a local tailor. We also bought tan color braces (suspenders) for Rob and all the boys including the pageboy Tom that looked super cute. The groomsmen were to wear beige linen trousers, white shirt, tan suspenders, and a mix of pastel colored bow ties that we had made by a tailor in Thailand.

There were so many details on the day, which you can see from the photos. I designed all the wedding stationery, we created a logo that was a combination of a hummingbird and a kilt and used this on everything. 

Everything was custom made from local designers or artisans and was a great help! From the flower girls fairy wands and dresses, the dress hangers, all the gifts for the wedding party, the dress, the boys outfits, pretty much everything. Even down to the ring holder which was a birds nest with two little turquoise eggs on a bed of moss. It was perfect because it tied in so many of our details.

We wrote our own vows and created custom signage which Nulki Nulks our designer in Spain creatively wrote out of recycled palettes, vintage windows and other pieces of wood.

The dinner was served ‘Family Picnic Style’. We asked for long picnic tables so everyone could sit together, sharing and passing food. We didn’t want ‘fancy food’ or set courses, as I think it’s always hard to decide on these before you arrive and we wanted our guests to have lots of options to choose from and enjoy specialties from the local region. We had salads, a BBQ, seafood paella, a trio of deserts and the big hit was the ‘cheese’ cake which was rounds of cheese in a tower which the guests enjoyed for the remainder of the night. We also served midnight snacks of mini sliders and falafels.

Everyone who came to our wedding week commented that it was the best wedding they had been to. We created a week of activities to introduce people to Spain and show them some of our favorite spots so everyone also got to know each other really well. For the 30 guests staying with us at the Cortijo it was likened to an ‘Adult Summer Camp’ which none of us wanted to end!

The wedding took a full year of lots of planning and was not without it’s stresses but on the day it was all so worth it and together with the incredible team of suppliers and our Wedding Fairy Godmother Rachel we created a most wonderful, magical, whimsical lyrical wedding that will be remembered by us and everyone who came for the rest of our lives!

Bridesmaids in Gold Glammed Up this Garden Party

I live for weddings like this. A destination celebration in Spain complete with a garden style ceremony and modern touches – I’m uhb-sessed. It’s a day that’s as good as gold (just like those bridesmaids’ dresses). Complete with Joseba Sandoval behind the lens snapping up every intimate moment, this Spanish celebration is sure to delight. Witness all the pretty in The Vault!

From Joseba SandovalEvery once and awhile you have one of those weddings that just take your breath away. This was one of those weddings. I live for weddings like this.

The wedding coordinator, Lucy Bennet from The Boutique Wedding in Spain, was absolutely amazing and kept the day running smoothly. It is so important to have a great planner that is local to help when planning a destination wedding where you can’t be there to make sure that everything gets taken care of!

Ellen and Thomas planned a destination wedding that was beautiful in details but most importantly was about family. It was an intimate wedding and the family flew in from many countries to the sunny Marbella in Spain. Hacienda Madronal is a stunning location for a destination wedding. Ellen and Thomas chose this luxurious venue for their ceremony and reception. As a photographer, it was such an honor to be present. Ellen wanted from me as the photographer to capture their playful personalities, and happiness together. This wedding is so beautiful and needs to be shared.

Colorful + Chic Spanish Villa Wedding

From kicking off the festivities with their rehearsal dinner, to uniting a global guestbook in Spain, this impossibly cute couple tied the knot with plenty of style. Amongst cobblestone streets and colorful houses, Sandra Åberg captured their emotional ceremony complete with a traditional exchange of coins. Holland Flowers adorned the evening at Villa Poniente, and you can see it all here!


From Sandra Aberg… This impossibly cute couple chose to bring their friends and family from all around the world to the most quaint little chapel in an area of Marbella known as La Virginia to tie the knot with a collision of American, Dutch/Flemish, and Spanish traditions and style.

The cobblestone streets and colorful houses made the perfect backdrop for the bride’s walk to the church with her father. An emotional and extremely warm ceremony was capped off with a traditional exchange of coins.

The reception was held at the gorgeous Villa Poniente, where the bride and groom spent an entire week with their friends enjoying everything that Marbella has to offer. On the day of the wedding, the grounds at the villa were transformed into an outdoor lounge, complete with large pillows and cosy blankets to add a moroccan boho feel. Giant teepees and countless lanterns added to the ambience throughout the night.

The laid back couple was anything but traditional and a classic Austin Mini Moke was their choice for a wedding car. They had a blast bombing around the streets of Marbella in that little thing, and it was so fun to see a couple who dared to just be themselves and do things their way.

It goes without saying that this couple’s engagement session and rehearsal dinner, kept the same theme were just as incredible as their wedding day.

Seaside Spanish Engagement Session & Rehearsal Dinner

I love the idea of having a fun photo shoot to kick off your wedding weekend. This adorable couple was already dressed up and in a celebratory mood, as Sandra Aberg captured their smiles and the stunning Spanish sights, before their rehearsal dinner where wine was poured and toasts made. We’re getting a look at all the amazing festivities that happened the next day at their wedding later on today but for now, I’m quite happy to plant myself here and soak up every perfect pre-wedding pic.

From Sandra Aberg… We met Jessica & Ian on the beach. They looked so cute in their boho chic outfits and I think it comes through in the images just how much they enjoy each other’s company. We got to ride through the streets of Marbella with them in the back of their Austin Mini Moke. And we even managed to squeeze in some photos in the famous Porta Banus harbour on an 80 year old sailboat and a six story yacht.

Jessica & Ian’s rehearsal dinner was one for the ages. The dinner was held at Ian’s father’s summer home, so far up on the hill that you can see Morocco on a clear day. The sprawling backyard was adorned with countless blooming African lilies. Guests were treated to a welcome drink and snacks, and a horse and dog show by Santi Serra Camps, and a meal with an incredible selection of food. Long tables were decorated with rosemary and lemons and candles on the sand that had been brought in and transformed the tennis court into a beach setting.

Highlights included the many speeches by the couple’s friends and family. Ian’s father gave the couple a gold bottle of Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades champagne, which he mentioned hip hop stars like Jay Z quite like, so that everyone at the dinner could toast the couple properly.

Rustic Summer Marbella Wedding

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.

Colorful Multicultural Marbella Wedding

Not only is this gorgeous garden-style soiree in the Marbella countryside jam-packed full of intricate and charming details, thanks to Caprichia Weddings & Occasions, but it’s the most beautiful blend of culture and family. From the first stunning image to the very last, Pedro Bellido is behind every powerful capture in this gallery.

From Caprichia Weddings & OccasionsShilpa & Eguiar are an amazing couple full of energy and a positive vibe. From the minute they contacted me, I just wanted to find a dream venue for them. I couldn’t help falling in love with the idea of blending the Indian, Spanish and American cultures, and celebrating a traditional Indian ceremony within a garden party feel. Having achieved such a highlight in their lives is truly fulfilling.

From the beautiful Bride…Eguiar and I both met in grad school at Georgetown University. We started off as good friends and over the course of a year started to develop less platonic feelings for one another. From the beginning of the relationship, I think both of us sensed that this was a relationship for the long haul. About two and a half years of dating, we both grabbed a drink after a friend’s holiday party and started joking about what our wedding would look like. After a few drinks, we both looked at each other and couldn’t find any reason to not make it happen right away.

Eguiar was born and raised in the Canary Islands of Spain, and my parents were Indian immigrants that came over to the US in their 20s. We wanted to honor both our Spanish and Indian heritages, recognizing that at times they can be diametrically in opposition of one another. Spain seemed like a perfect midpoint for my relatives in India and friends in the US, while making it easier for his friends and family to travel. We settled on Marbella, Spain for its proximity to the beach, mountains and the oft-visited sites of Sevilla, Granada and Morocco.

In true Indian style, the wedding was a five-day affair, starting off with a backyard party on that Wednesday and ending with a beachside brunch on Sunday. There was a sangeet and mehndi party, as well as flamenco and traditional Andalucian horse dancing. However, for the wedding, I wanted the actual ceremony and reception to feel like an intimate backyard party, which was definitely a challenge with 240 guests coming in from all over the world.

Lucia, our wedding planner, found us the most stunning venue I have ever seen in my life, which was cliffside off the mountains, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Gibraltar and the coast of Morocco. I was adamant that the Hindu ceremony, dinner and dancing all be outside. The landscape was too perfect to take second fiddle to formalities. We started off the groom’s baraat (the Indian procession by horse) by the gate of the house to the mandap (the traditional Hindu altar for wedding ceremonies). After our ceremony, guests had cocktail hour overlooking the Costa del Sol and the valley near the pool of the house. Dinner and dancing took place on top of a grassed terrace that oversaw the residence and the distant twinkling lights coming from the coast of Africa.

We had long tables in front of the dancefloor that way people could mingle, get to know each other and feel like they were having dinner with old friends. You could hear Spanish, English and Hindi circulating among our guests. It was truly a multicultural gathering in every sense. Lucia perfectly captured the garden party feel that I was going for, by integrating local flowers on the table, customizing menus for each of the guests with their name, and hanging lanterns over the dancefloor.

There is so much emphasis on throwing a dream wedding, which is silly, but I’m fairly certain that the wedding was as close to what I imagine heaven would be – family, friends, good food, great drinks, stunning location, and dancing until sunset.

I cannot tell you how much the wedding was a hit. I still get emails from Indians, Spaniards and our friends telling them that it was a once in a lifetime experience. People have said that sincerely it was one of the most beautiful, unique weddings and that all throughout Saturday folks would say things like “they have thought of everything; they have thought of all these details”. All of these comments are due to you and your teams execution.

And there is much credit due to your patience and your imagination in blending the Indian elements so perfectly. The mandap and everything surrounding the ceremony was just ideal. I cannot say enough about the venue, too. People were OBSESSED with the view from the cocktail hour, making jokes like “could you see Africa when you got married??”. I can just tell you have such perfect instincts for memorable moments.

I am so grateful to have worked with you and I am just in awe of your great ethic, your amazing classiness, your response to everything. You created the highlight of not only mine and Eguiar’s life but of our parents, too.

Glamorous Floral Wedding in Marbella, Spain

You will for sure be dreaming of Spain once you scroll through these images by Sandoval Studios Photography. The flowers by Pedro Navarro are big and bountiful, the colors the softest shade of pastel and the overall design by Romance Weddings is glam to the orous. And then there’s the dress – oh that gorgeous creation by Chaviano Couture. Have a look here for so much more.


From Sandoval Studios Photography… Luica and David were a delightful couple who wished to create their dream day here in Marbella combined with a touch of luxury and style. Working with this criteria we located a stunning luxury villa set in the hills behind Marbella, providing the perfect venue for their wedding day. As it was a smaller wedding party, the courtyard was the perfect setting for their dinner reception and the magical gazebo area already in the gardens was a beautiful location for the ceremony. Luica and David loved the different areas we could use for their wedding day and the property offered a lot of privacy so they could relax and enjoy their day with their close family and friends.

Florals were high on Luica’s agenda and the talented Pedro Navarro and his team created stunning floral displays using Juliet roses, white peonies and ranunculus combined with lace draped over the main table and plenty of vintage styling from the chairs to the extra props drafted in for the day, the overall style was pure romance.

We loved the watercolour and calligraphy stationery created for the day by the Design House of Moira which matched the original invitations and each place setting had a beautiful menu and placecard which was pinned to a peach. I do love combining florals with fruits and this was done perfectly.

The candy bar created by Dulce Serendipia and our cheese table were styled with the same romantic theme and us girls even managed to sneak a bit of glitter in! Mar from Romance Weddings created some fabulous cocktail stirrers, paper flowers and vintage props, we always love her attention to details and styling, especially when it comes to taking the photographs. A girl after our own heart!

The gorgeous wedding cake, that I was banned from going near, was designed and created by Sweet Things By Fi, it looked stunning and had been designed to match Luica’s dress, sadly I did not get to test it on this occasion!

Luica’s dreamy dress was from Chaviano Couture, we swooned when we saw Luica appear from her dressing room and David looked equally handsome in his Hugo Boss suit.

A wonderful day was had by our charming couple along with their families and friends who partied well into the evening.

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!
