All weddings are special because all weddings are different. It may sound cliché but it isn't. Each couple is different and their personality can be felt in each wedding we organize. Laura and Ian had a very clear idea about what they wanted: a different, laid-back and fun wedding close to the beach with personal touches all around.
Although Laura is a brilliant Events Manager running her own company, she quickly realized how tough it was going to be to plan her own wedding abroad without the knowledge of reputable suppliers and the language.
The area chosen was Begur, a brilliant spot in the heart of the "Costa Brava" which they fell in love with from the very first time they visited it. Begur is a small town steeped in history and Laura & Ian wanted to be involved in it. How? It wasn't easy but we finally managed to hire the most beautiful colonial-style mansion of Begur where the ceremony and the canapés were held. It's a stunning house bought in 1859 by a Catalan who had emigrated to Cuba years before. The interior walls and ceilings still retain drawings and frescos related to the West Indies. This was the first time that this mansion opened its doors for a wedding.
In spite of the rain of the previous days, the morning of Friday 31st May was fabulous. The ceremony was held in the main room of the mansion, a truly beautiful room. Once the ceremony was finished, all guests were led to the balcony! At that point, everybody was amazed as they took in the stunning back gardens that belonged to that mansion. The WOW factor continued thanks to a brilliant Cuban Band who performed beautifully and created a magic and cool atmosphere.
During the canapés, mojitos were the star drink and all guests were entertained by a great British caricaturist based in Catalonia. Later on, the reception took place in a breath-taking boutique hotel 10 minutes away by car. The views were amazing and even with a bit of rain, the wedding party enjoyed every single minute.
Thank you, Ian and Laura, for your trust.

"After we decided to get married in Catalonia, I quickly realised, with no knowledge of reputable suppliers and the language, how hard it was going to be to realise all our hopes and dreams for our wedding.
Finding Angela was the best use of my time on the Internet! She quickly took on our plans and helped us organise our perfect wedding. We had a lot of personal ideas, which Angela helped us bring to life, finding and managing new suppliers to make everything happen that we asked for.
It was fantastic to have Angela at the wedding. She calmly managed the whole day so I didn't have to worry about a thing - which as an events manager myself was the biggest treat!
Angela is extremely efficient, organised, personable and will help you every step of the way. She is a joy to work with and I now miss our coffee catch-ups! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Angela to all couples heading out to Catalonia for their special day."
