E&D, FINESSE AND ELEGANCE

001.jpg

 Blue. That could have been the theme of this romantic and beautiful  wedding. Elizabeth and David said “I do” at the Hotel El Far in Llafranc, Catalonia (Spain), a stunning venue overlooking the Mediterranean sea. The day was so beautiful and bright that the sky and the sea came together under the same blue hue.

They chose to stay in a gorgeous traditional catalan villa called Mas Mauri which added a fresh and vivid green to the wedding colour palette. Georgia Porredón captured every minute of this beautiful and lively celebration and to incorporate Spanish tradition into the ceremony, the couple had a Spanish guitar duo play the processional and recessional songs. 

Everything was planned and designed very carefully. It was all about pure elegance, and the day was beautiful and very delicate.

"Talented, organised, diligent, creative, warm, resourceful, attentive, David and I could go on and on. Ángela & Silvia at Valtueña had every single detail covered.    

They found us a truly charming and magical place in which to share with our closest friends and family. They’ve really worked out how to do this and they do it beautifully. 
Our wedding day was without stress or worry. Everything was perfectly timed, prepared and orchestrated.
Ángela and Silvia put together a team of incredible people. They know EVERYONE in the area. And the really cool thing is everyone we worked with knew each other. You could honestly feel their shared passion for the work. 
We have received so many complements about our wedding. From the location, the food, the music, the flowers, the accommodation. Everything was perfection. Being a designer myself I can tell you, I am extremely particular about things like flowers, colours, lighting, paper, layout and style. I can promise you Angela and Silvia are too and they will realise your vision

L&H, A DREAM WEDDING

laura-hassan-00.jpg

It was a nice sunny day in Spring when I first met the gorgeous bride, originally from Egypt, at a restaurant in Chelsea, London. It was very clear that their ideal wedding destination was somewhere close to Barcelona.

Only a few days after our first meeting, we arranged a visit to Catalonia for them to see some venues. They decided to go for a stunning Masia in the countryside of Catalonia for the wedding, which would take place on a Saturday at the end of August. They also wanted a Modern white Masia by the coast for the pre-wedding party which took place the day before (more details of the party here). 

3.jpg

The arrival of the bride was something that we planned very carefully as it was the most important part of the wedding. The bride looked gorgeous in a stunning and elegant white horse carriage. Once the bride arrived and, together with her father, they walked down a stunning aisle which the florists, Bornay, lined beautifully with white hydrangeas and 2 meter high branches (scroll further down to see it!). 

laura-hassan-02.jpg
5.jpg

We worked hard in order to differentiate the three areas of the venue:  

the gardens for the canapés, the terrace for the reception and the indoor disco.  

The beautiful gardens were turned into delicate, decadent and romantic French gardens using, human statues, different styles of vases and of course a variety of flowers in several colour hues. All the details were taken care of with finesse.  

6.jpg

Whilst the guests were waiting for the arrival of the bride, they enjoyed some delicious canapés, catered by Esther Conde. They were also provided with entertainment by the fantastic The Ayoub Sisters who came from the UK to join this beautiful wedding and play during the entrance of the bride. 

laura-hassan-08.jpg

The entrance of the bride was just spectacular. She walked down a 2 metre high aisle made of tree branches and white hydrangeas and the grass floor was covered with white petals. It was just amazing. 

12.jpg
13.jpg
14.jpg

Once the bride arrived, all guests made their way to the second area of the venue: The terrace. For that, they walked through different areas of the gardens. The guests were amazed by the beautiful flower decorations such as the spiral stairs (pictured below), as well as the arch at the beginning of the tunnel that led to the terrace.

The tunnel was split into two parts, the first part was covered in beautiful greenery and decorated with hanging candles. The second part was made of pebbles and decorated with beautiful flowers in cream and light pink hues, as well as olive tree branches and candles. This created a magical atmosphere for the guests and showed off the beauty of the terrace.

18.jpg
15.jpg

Once the guests came out of the tunnel and onto the terrace, a whole new world of pure beauty was in front of them which the guests were really impressed by. There were three different areas: the first area was for the food stalls which we placed in front of the façade of the house. The other areas were two 5 metre high wonderful structures, each one with a different purpose.

The main structure, which was for the outdoor dance floor, was made up of 10,000 carnations hanging from the ceiling. For the second one, we recreated a chilled area full of greenery, chandeliers and baroque furniture. Bornay did a pretty amazing job!

19-1.jpg
17.jpg
21.jpg
20.jpg
22.jpg

The main reception was a stand up dinning mixing different table set-ups: from very formal and elegant sit-down table set-ups to low tables and sofas, which created a much more relaxed atmosphere. There were 6 different food stalls in total, all completely different and delicious styles of food, from a Japanese stall to a healthy corner including salads that the bride enjoyed whilst in London. Food was very important to the couple and Esther Conde catered it in such a perfect way adapting themselves to the couple's requirements.

The wedding cake was a tribute to their country of origin, Egypt. They opted for 3 pyramids of different heights full of cupcakes and macaroons. The main pyramid was higher than one metre containing 500 cupcakes with two beautiful penguins as a cake topper, which had an important meaning for the couple. The other two pyramids contained 450 macaroons in total. 

The final area of the wedding venue was the indoor disco that we turned into a jungle. Definitely a WOW factor that no-one expected. The indoor dance floor was decorated with different greenery falling down from the ceiling and lots of furniture such as brown chester sofas, poufs and wooden tables.

36.jpg
laura-hassan-24.jpg

The whole wedding were full of special details and lights of every kind, from colored lights to vintage bulbs, fairy lights curtains and candles.

37.jpg

Every detail of this wedding was very personal to the happy couple and was carefully planned by us.

It was an experience of a lifetime and a dream wedding, I really hope that L&H and all their beloved guests will remember it in the same way we do. It really was a magical day!

Thank you  L&H for your trust

Love  x  


"Where do I start... stressed and scared to start the prep for the big day, it would be nice to meet a kind, humble, hard working, honest person to help run it perfectly for you... and that's exactly who I met. And little did I know that Angela's team in Spain were just an extension of her exquisite charm.

Unfortunately I'm slightly OCD and so nothing would ever go missed with my sort of character! Probably a wedding planner's worst nightmare!! But Angela and her team surprisingly embraced it and actually ensured everyone planning (caterers and florists etc) were delivering to that standard... and more. We worked as a team and they helped deliver every single request... even if it was completely ludicrous and potentially impossible!! Hehe... but she made it possible. From the beginning to end. The final outcome was magical... "the most beautiful wedding ever" were comments from our guests!! They were honestly amazed, as were we (!), and spoke of it for months after... even people that didn't come said they heard it was like a fairytale wedding :)

Ladies, for this big day you need someone you can trust, someone who is patient with you and never judgemental, supports you when you are breaking down and keeps you smiling strong no matter what disasters happen along the way! This is the Valtueña team. They believe in everything you see, and make it your reality.

Perfection is never achieved to a perfectionist... But with Angela and her team... it was somehow achieved."

CALL IT MAGIC!

8.jpg

 A wedding at the end of August usually brings very hot weather. Our gorgeous couple, L & H, wanted a huge informal but stylish party beforehand. As the wedding was going to take place in the countryside of Catalonia, they really wanted a pool party which, if possible, overlooked the sea. After doing some research, we found what they were looking for! 

The day was so beautiful that the setting looked even more spectacular than usual. The venue was a Mediterranean white and modern Masia overlooking the sea with an amazing infinity pool. 

laura-hassan-party-01.jpg
laura-hassan-party-02.jpg

A fresh lemonade was ready to welcome all the guests coming from different parts of the world, mainly from Egypt and the UK.

laura-hassan-party-05.jpg

The catering at the party included different food stalls such as, a range of salads, olives & cheese, healthy juices and the main stall, which the guests found very impressive (Scroll down to find out more!). 

laura-hassan-party-06.jpg
laura-hassan-party-07.jpg

The setting was again, very personal. As you can see in the photo below the long tables were in the shape of L and H, their initials. The decorations were Mediterranean themed which mainly included: olive tree leaves, lavander, rosemary, wildflowers and lots of candles and seasonal fruits.

As you can see in the photos below, the most impressive food stall of the party was a variety of huge and delicious PAELLAS!

The sunset was spectacular and the DJ, Ramy DJunkie, also from Egypt, created a magical atmosphere for everyone.

Another magical aspect of the party was the Live Experience Show which was performed by Micah (violin), Ruben Moran (saxophone) and Manuel Moore (electric guitar). They had flown in from Ibiza to be at the pre-wedding party and they delivered an unreal show!

Overall,  the party was what we call MAGIC!

SONAM & KIRESH - THE SIKH WEDDING

7428-diana-segura-bodahindu-30072016.jpg

Last July this beautiful couple held their Indian Sikh Wedding in Barcelona. Sonam and Kiresh wanted something very relaxed with their family and friends in their beloved city. The most important thing for them was the venue, as they really wanted to have an outdoor party. This is actually something that many couples wish for. However, it is not always easy to find venues that allow an outdoor party until late into the night. Nevertheless, we found it and they loved it!

They held a pre-wedding party two days before in an Indian Restaurant in Barcelona.

1035-diana-segura-evento-S&K-28072016.jpg

The wedding day was split into two different parts. In the morning the traditional ceremony took place, along with family photos. Afterwards, the couple enjoyed a guided tour around Barcelona. During the evening guests attended the reception and a huge party.

GEORGIE & NICK

georgie-nick-00.jpg

Georgie and Nick's wedding was one of pure boho chic with lots of personal touches, from the bridal crown to the centerpieces. Georgie and Nick were looking for a unique venue and after visiting quite a few of them, they chose a fortified house that was built later on in the Fifteenth Century to defend attacks by pirates and bandits.

Georgie & Nick -1.jpg
Georgie & Nick -2.jpg
georgie-nick-05.jpg

Having a good knowledge of the area as Georgie's family has a house in Tamariu, they knew that the food and wine was a very important bit of their beautiful wedding. Joker, the catering, did an amazing job satisfying everybody with the quality of the service and the food.

The music was the other important bit. So, we hired a Cuban band that entertained all guests during the canapés and during the party. Once the band performance finished, a wonderful DJ took over and the party lasted until late at night.

And love, lots of love was the last and most important bit of their exquisite wedding.

APRIL & MATT

april-matt-00.jpg

Politeness, tenderness and love. These are the words that come to mind when I think of the gorgeous April and the true English gent Matt. They both fell in love with Begur, a small city in Catalonia during the Fira dels Indians, a fair that takes place in September and remembers those times back in 19th century when lots of people from Begur emigrated to Cuba for a new life. Mojitos, Cuban music and laughs are guaranteed during the fair.

april-matt-05.jpg
April & Matt-1.jpg

So, obviously, their wedding took place in Begur, in September. There were two venues chosen for the day; the ceremony took place downtown at a venue with great views over the Begur's fabulous ancient castle and the evening banquet was in a beautiful boutique hotel. Although Begur is soaked into the Cuban culture, April wanted to mix it up with a Mexican Mariachi band to accompany them during the canapés. A really nice touch for the last part of their day.

All guests enjoyed throughout the whole day and April and Matt had the day they were dreamed of for so long.

"We first spoke to Angela a month after our engagement and what would be a whole 18 months before our wedding; our first impressions were that she clearly knew her stuff - and we were not wrong.  She instantly understood what it was that we wanted for our wedding and why it was that we wanted to celebrate in Begur.  Angela and Silvia organised a huge range of venues for us to visit, a great range of florists, photographers and much more. Even when things didn't go to plan, they were able to pull it back and keep us calm. They dealt with all of our queries and more eccentric requests with ease and with an attitude that nothing was too much trouble. We keep telling our guests that hiring Catalonia Weddings Boutique was the best money spent in our wedding (ok maybe along with the mariachi band they sourced for us!) and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone thinking about planning a wedding in beautiful Catalonia! I will truly miss our visits out to Barcelona to meet Silvia and our regular liaison with Angela! I cannot speak of them highly enough."

ISSY & JAMES

The story of a family. The first time that we met Issy and James in London we realised that they were looking for a great time with their family. They have 2 gorgeous kids and the third was on the way. Like many other couples, they had a bond with Catalonia as Issy spent much of her childhood there. So, it was a no-brainer the location of their wedding: the Costa Brava in Catalonia.

The most important pillars of their big day were the kids, the food, the wine and the champagne. Issy and James were a joy to work with and they loved the idea of having lots of fun for the kids as a magician and quite a few childminders to organise different games for them. It was a very intimate wedding of only 19 adults and lots of children, 11 in total. It was a really colourful, fun and relaxing wedding but also classy and elegant.

Esther Conde perfectly catered the wedding offering excellent food and service. The canapés were entertained by a live jazz band and the banquet was a family reunion with lots of children playing around and the adults having their well-deserved laid-back moment.

SHOBI & MARK

Shobi and Mark had a very clear idea in mind: they didn't want to get married in the UK. We showed them all that Catalonia could offer and from all the different options, they finally decided to go to a very exclusive venue: a private island located up north Catalonia.

This lovely couple also wanted to have a very intimate wedding of around 40 people and the island was the perfect size as apart from having an overwhelming area for the ceremony, the banquet and the party, it has a villa that could accommodate the guests for around 4 days. The ceremony performed by the Humanist Toby was full of emotions. For the rest of the day, the guests enjoyed the beauty of it all in a very relaxed and magical atmosphere.

KATIE & SIMON

Like many couples that decide to get married in Catalonia, Katie and Simon had a special bond with Palamós, a small city located on the coast in Catalonia. They loved the city and they dreamt of getting married there. So, we worked on following their wishes and we organised a very elegant and classy, yet rural wedding in their beloved city, Palamós.

Katie and Simon both originally from England went for a relaxed wedding using pale blues, off-whites and creams as their colour palette. The venue chosen was a beautiful boutique hotel and the food was exquisite thanks to the Michelin award-winning catering, Casamar. A Catalan-British band got the evening party in full swing and kept the guests in good spirits.

 "Throughout the time between our engagement and wedding Angela was invaluable. Not only does she have fantastic taste she has great attention to details so nothing goes unnoticed or ignored. Angela put us immediately at ease and made the process of organising our wedding so fun and enjoyable. We didn't seem to encounter any stresses in the lead up or on the day of our wedding.

We would recommend Angela to anyone thinking of organising their wedding in Catalonia a hundred times over, she truly is passionate about what she does and it really does show. We had the best day ever-thank you Angela"
