On Tuesday 10th October the Wedding Planner Conferece took place in Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain). We were honoured to be part of it as one of the speakers, together with other colleagues of the industry.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
This lovely couple, Rob from the UK and the beautiful Elena from Russia, had a very clear idea about what they wanted: a rural and classy wedding in Horta de Sant Joan, a very charming little village inland Catalonia. Rob's family has a vineyard there and was initially where they wanted to hold the wedding. It was a great idea but also a big challenge due to all the work needed to get the vineyard ready. So, after few considerations, they ended up hiring a beautiful hotel in the area.
The beautiful traditional Bangladeshi pre-wedding party of Tania & Rab's took place in a wonderful Masia located in La Costa Brava, one of our favourite spots in Catalonia. The main theme in this kind of party is "joy" displayed through "saris" and the colours: yellow, pink, red and orange. The main flower used is the marygold, found also in yellow or orange that can be used for many purposes such as for making garlands.
There were only 6 months left to Albert and Melia's wedding when they contacted us. Initially, they wanted to arrange everything by themselves as Albert is originally from Catalonia but eventually, they realized that they needed some help as planning a wedding is quite time-consuming and both of them were very busy at work.
Everything started during The Designer Wedding Show in London. We were exhibiting there when suddenly a beautiful lady called Steph, with stunning eyes and a perfect smile, popped into our stand. She was looking for the perfect venue to marry in and she didn't hesitate a minute when we discussed the possibility of Camp Nou (FCB stadium) as a venue. Gary, her husband-to-be and a big fan of soccer, was obviously really easy to convince. That's how they decided on their wedding venue: FC Barcelona Stadium was the one!
