Sunsets, Bubbles and a Motorbike: Destination Wedding in Spain

By Claire

Emily and Gavin were legally mar­ried at a reg­istry office in the UK before head­ing for Spain with friends and fam­ily to cel­e­brate in the sum­mer sun­shine. Their wed­ding cer­e­mony was in the evening, with cel­e­bra­tions con­tin­u­ing into the early hours.

Emily’s words of wis­dom are beau­ti­fully said: “Brides — stop wor­ry­ing about silly lit­tle things, they end up not being very impor­tant when you’re there expe­ri­enc­ing your spe­cial moment!

How would you describe your wed­ding style?

Ele­gant & sim­ple with Span­ish twist!

A lit­tle about the wed­ding ceremony:

A very sim­ple pri­vate ‘legal’ reg­istry sign­ing with only us & two wit­nesses (bride’s par­ents) a week before fly­ing to Spain for the for­mal full wed­ding bless­ing which in our eyes was our wed­ding day!

It was an Eng­lish vicar who lead the local Nerja Church of Eng­land ser­vices. It was very hot in July so with Span­ish tra­di­tion we started the cer­e­mony in the evening at 7pm.

We had a Span­ish gui­tarist & canapés, cham­pagne on arrival etc. The wed­ding was at a roof top venue over­look­ing the Span­ish vil­lage of Nerja with sea & moun­tain views.

Our for­mal sit down din­ner was around 8.30pm with a typ­i­cal Span­ish four course menu, and a disco below the pool (same vicin­ity) from 10.30– 4am. We had a local Eng­lish DJ, who played every­thing from rat pack to pop to 50’s medleys!

Which read­ings did you choose?

The read­ing on ‘mar­riage’, a ser­mon was cho­sen and read by the vicar & a son­net was writ­ten & read by my brother.

Tell us a lit­tle about your wed­ding venue styling and details:

We had an out­side cer­e­mony with 70 chairs fac­ing the sea view & an arch of white chif­fon, white lilies & roses. Inside we had white crisp tables, orange rose cen­tre­pieces, and crys­tals scat­tered on all the tables. For favours the women had stone bracelets & men had sil­ver dragees choco­lates in a paper coor­di­nated cone.

Invi­ta­tions and recep­tion stationery:

Our invi­ta­tions were designed by myself & we had them printed at a local print­ers. We used our own dec­o­ra­tions with sim­ple white rib­bon & crystals.

Wed­ding music and entertainment:

Span­ish gui­tarist, Local DJ, and our own choice of tracks on CD for walk­ing down for the ceremony.

What did you wear?

Gavin, best man, usher & father of the bride wore match­ing ecru Ital­ian M&S fit­ted suits, which were half cot­ton, half linen. The groom wore an orange skinny tie, the rest wore ivory skinny ties.

The bride wore a lace fit­ted strap­less des­ti­na­tion type dress with a long lace see through train. The gown was a strap­less style with sweet heart neck­line & Vic­to­rian but­tons run­ning down the back. Emily also wore a side encrusted hair piece and ivory satin sling back peep toe heels. Sin­gle Pearl drop neck­lace, dia­mond & pearl drop earrings.

Mem­o­rable wed­ding day moments:

Walk­ing on to the roof top with my father to his favorite song by Kenny G. The pho­tos being taken up on the tower at the venue while the sun was set­ting — it was magical.

Wed­ding day advice:

Savour every sin­gle moment as the next day it will all feel like a dream!!!

Oh and brides:  stop wor­ry­ing about silly lit­tle things, they end up not being very impor­tant when you’re there expe­ri­enc­ing your spe­cial moment!!
