Most of our weddings run across 3 days, but not all of our weddings are as bigger production as Patrick and Krisia’s wedding. There were so many elements it was fantastic!
Family and friends travelled from the US and across the Globe! An intimate group gathered for 3 incredible days, celebrating at 3 fabulous events all at one unique and stunning wedding venue!
Patrick and Krisia’s wedding was a true celebration of their love and their cultures! From hiring a Cuban band to celebrate Krisia’s family history and passion to dance! To the church exit accompanied by a Bagpiper to honor Patrick’s job as a Firefighter! We incorporated the Spanish element (krisia’s mothers family) with a huge flamenco show on the Friday welcome dinner and on Saturday a flamenco horse show with the famous dancing horses! And to top it off, just indulging in their passion of amazing food- a taco truck for late night snacks.
For the Friday Night welcome dinner we created long wooden tables, adorned with thick garlands of yellow gypsophilia (created by our in house florist- Flores La Boheme), a lemon on each plate to hold the name cards and dressed with vintage blue and white table wear! Our amazing Flamenco crew who we love and work with so much created the entertainment! We had a surprise presentation of an anniversary cake for mum and dad and emotional speeches!
Saturdays wedding was a big church affair, all in Spanish but as Krisia’s family are Cuban Spanish this was not a problem at all! An intensely serious ceremony (as with all Spanish church ceremonies), was followed by a Bagpipe rendition to celebrate Pat’s work!
Back at the Cortijo, we had a Cuban band energetically playing for the Cocktail time and an amazing Horse show to close and lead people into dinner!
With wooden banquet tables, wooden cross back bistro chairs, antique gold charger plates and beautiful Designer Crockery all fro Pedro Navarro! Table decoration consisted of big wide floral and green garlands dropping to the floor dramatically, decorated with gold candelabras and tea lights. Overhead we installed bistro lights and the trees were all adorned with fairy lights! The place was magical!
The most impressive element (as far as I am concerned) for the night was the Floating wedding Cake, yes you heard me right! Floating! I had created a floating platform hanging in a Pomegranate tree, Flores la Boheme decorated the platform with greenery and we mounted the Four Tier Hundreds and Thousands cake created by Alyson cakes!
The whole wedding was warm, happy, fun and a true celebration! the family and friends gathered again on Sunday to nurse their poorly heads and have a final brunch before they headed off home or further on their travels of Europe!
Thank you to El Zarrio for capturing the wedding so perfectly!
