A Glamorous Cortijo Wedding

For their Wedding in Spain, Saskia and Sam had dreamed of a glamorous Cortijo Wedding! When they first got in touch, they described their dream wedding!

‘A rustic spanish ‘fiesta’ in a picturesque, refined hacienda or cortijo. A sensory sensation where we can enjoy great, authentic spanish cuisine, good wine, great music. As the sun goes down the venue twinkles from the gentle glow of lights and lanterns and the smell of dama de noche fills the air. Guests are entertained by spanish guitar and flamenco dancing, before a dj gets the party started.’

Its always funny to look back 2 years on a first enquiry, remembering the conversations with the clients over the 18 months of planning, the styling and design discussions and of course how it all turned out on their wedding day. I have to say Saskia and Sam’s days was nothing short of the dream they had from the beginning!

I am proud to say we certainly hit the nail on the head! Saskia works for Bobby Brown Make-up and manages Bridal Events herself, her standards are pretty high, because her knowledge and experience was like our own! It was such fun to bounce ideas off each other, working out how we could implement their dream in the spaces provided at their wedding venue in an innovative and original way!

As with many Brides these days Saskia wanted to have a lot of input on her wedding design and styling. She produced the beautiful guest name cards, wedding table plan and wedding menus! We are always really happy to create these personal touches for you, its what we specialise in, but if you are crafty yourself and would like to get involved then we also greatly encourage this. It is after all your wedding day.

The stylish decor ideas mixed with the incredible outfits of this gorgeous couple really made for one of my favourite weddings for 2018!

Here’s what Saskia and Sam had to say :

Working with Lucy and Jesus was the best decision we made throughout our wedding process. Our wedding was more magical than we could have hoped, and the dream of a ‘colourful spanish fiesta’ was truly surpassed. All of the guests were blown away by the thought and detail that had gone into every touch, and so many told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Lucy and Jesus have so much passion for what they do, are a joy to work with and will care about your big day just as much as you do.

Saskia and Sam’s wedding Photographer on the day was Mireia Cordomi– Mireia has a wonderful relaxed style and likes to have a bit of fun with the Bride and Groom which always results in gorgeous portrait images. Thanks to Mireia for sharing her work with us.
