Happy Easter Weekend to you all and what better way to celebrate than to share with you this Blog post ‘A Seville Cortijo for a Destination Wedding’. This fun and colourful Wedding full of love and laughter will brighten your slightly cloudy Easter weekend!
The day you get engaged is a day many of your dreams come true, you have found your true love, the person that fills your heart and soul. From this day forward your life with be lived, loved and celebrated together! Planning your wedding is all about realising your dreams, and when we begin the planning process with you, we work hard to discover what those dreams look like and how we can help you make them real! So when we met Jess and Nathaniel we did our research and discovered that a Seville Cortijo for their destination wedding was completely what their dream was about! The traditional and charming, culturally rich and historical, the heat, the food, the passion…this is Seville, this is Spain and this is why so many of our clients come here to get married! An experience out of the ordinary, a wedding with style and uniqueness, a wedding menu that offers experience, inspiration, excitement and above all a day that says it is yours. Not copied not duplicated, as unique to you as your finger prints!
I loved this wedding from start to finish. To begin with, Jess and Nate are funny and sweet and kind people, I knew right away it would be a positive planning experience with lots of laughs. They dreamed of a relaxed day, personalised; a genuinely heartfelt and enjoyable celebration of their love. It was all about the very closest family, friends and pets…yes, they wanted to bring their little dog along too! I am mad about dogs so could not wait to finally have one at one of our weddings and oh what a cutie little Pickle was!
Mid August in Seville could have been unbearably hot, but luckily we were blessed with a beautiful summers day! Our Venue El Esparragal, has beautiful gardens that offer so much natural shade so even in the August sun you cool always find a cool spot to relax, which is a blessing for any wedding in Spain. The day went perfectly, with a pre-planned schedule for breakfast and Pool attendance the Bride and Groom managed to not cross paths until the key moment of the day! The ceremony, conducted by the fabulous Kurt, was personal, unique and fun, everyone was encouraged to get involved with lead to tears of joy and laughter!
We celebrated their cocktail reception across the two inner courtyards, kept cool by the fountains and greenery; adorned with tropical plants and orange trees the space is tranquil and beautiful! Adding some Spanish spice, we organised a spectacular flamenco show to entertain guests throughout the hour whilst they sipped on their ‘Tinto de Verano’. A spectacular dinner of Spanish Paella followed with tables adorned with gold teapots jars and candles, topped off with rich coral flowers! The colours were spectacular. The dinner came to a close with some serious belly laughs and the speeches and everyone moved across for the party! A seriously fabulous time was had by all and most important of all Nate and Jess did not stop smiling!
Here’s what our groom had to say:
Creation of the most perfect experience, with wonderful memories that will stay with us for a lifetime. I honestly couldn’t put in to words how Lucy and Jesus made our wedding the most magical, enjoyable and memorable time we could have ever wished for. Every detail was perfect, the engagement process was about getting to know what we are like as people and then through their many years of expertise they channelled that into our crafting our special day. With recommendations, insights on vendors and their pros and cons we couldn’t have wished to be more informed about which choice to make. There is plenty to think about when organising a wedding, but their easy step by step guide meant there was never a need to worry unnecessarily about what to do next or if we had missed something. To use another Company in Spain to organise your wedding would be to do your lifelong memory a disservice. Our guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed our wedding still, so its not just our word that they are superheroes. 10 stars!
