Lucy planned our wedding which was held in Southern Spain in June 2017. We approached her 12 months before our event date for a comprehensive search and source assignment as we didn’t know much about venues or how to approach it given we live in the U.K. Lucy provided us with a very detailed search outcome for venues across the region. She was concise and offered great insight into the venue, catering, accommodation, DJ’s, bands, decor, flowers and so much more. She was attentive, patient, caring and professional through our engagement and the numerous Skype calls we had leading up to our day. She handled all sourcing and procurement across all aspects of our day and was always available for a chat or questions. Our day was nothing short of spectacular and Lucy surpassed our expectations on all levels. She teams up with her husband Jesus and they make a fantastic partnership together. They both arrived early to set up proceedings and ensured the whole day worked in symphony and to military precision. We couldn’t recommend Lucy and Jesus enough, they are the gold standard of wedding planning in the region, full of passion and the perfect partner in reaching your matrimonial Spanish wedding dreams!
Thank you so much!

When my husband and I decided to get married we knew one thing: we didn’t want it to be conventional! Our main aim was to strip back all of the usual traditions and trimmings—the elements that turn good people into crazy, stressed people—and throw the most epic party for our closest friends and family. We knew instantly, upon that first Skype chat, that Lucy and Jesus would be the calm, cool, fun and understanding wedding planners to make our ambition a reality. From day one we probably threw the most irritating challenges their way (NO floral arch! NO bridesmaids! NO cake! NO decorations apart from some balloons that are almost impossible to pin to the ground in a windy part of Spain, let alone consider the cost and effort of the helium required! NO cute things whatsoever! And so on!) but Lucy was eternally gracious and full of brilliant, creative ways to work around everything we did, and didn’t, want. Throughout our 18 month-long process we always felt comfortable and reassured that we could reach out and ask even the most inane questions—the patience and enthusiasm these two possess is truly impressive. Their dedication, focus and quality time spent on us would make you imagine they have no other weddings to plan, which couldn’t be further from the truth. From the detailed first steps behind finding a venue (we had such a fantastic list of options, it was hard to decide) through to accompanying us on an incredible food tasting (seriously, Gusto is to die for) we never felt stranded in the wilderness of wedding planning. On the day itself we relaxed, sat back, blinked and everything was already set up: Lucy and Jesus make it seem like magic, but I cannot stress how hard they work to fulfill your dream and enable you to not sweat the small stuff. Our wedding blew my expectations out of the water—it was so fun and so perfectly arranged for everyone’s enjoyment that we had many friends and family members telling us in all honesty it was the best wedding they had ever experienced. I was on such a high throughout our 3 day-long extravaganza that I spent most of the following day crying that it was over, and feeling desperate to relive it again—and this, coming from someone who was never, ever bothered about even having a wedding, is pretty major. I even miss just having our regular catch-ups with Lucy over the internet… Maybe we should renew our vows in Vejer next year?!
With love Hannah and Phill x

When we decided to get married in Spain our friends & family said we were crazy. However, since our first consultation skype with Lucy we knew that we will be taken care of and that our wedding will be perfect. Truthfully, planning a wedding abroad is hard. Different time zone, different language, and different currency. Lucy made it so easy. I have to admit that we were not worried about a thing, as Lucy has so many ideas & plans, along with phenomenal taste, and a great amount of experience. All the vendors that she recommended were great – we really enjoyed working with every single one of them. Our wedding & welcome party were absolutely amazing! Better than we could ever imagine, and our parents & friends are still talking about it. We were so lucky to find Lucy & Jesus, thank you! PS: A lot of our friends are thinking about destination weddings, and we always suggest the south of Spain & Boutique Wedding Co. :).
Kate and Phil
We used The Boutique Wedding Co for our wedding last year at Casa La Siesta and we had a fantastic experience with them. They were very patient and helpful in the lead up with lots of suggestions and recommendations of how best to run the day. The wedding day itself was absolutely fantastic, Lucy & Jesus could not have done more to make it extra special. The venue looked stunning and all the different elements of the day ran smoothly. We would highly recommend them for a stunning wedding experience.
Thank you so much Mr and Mrs Sancto!
Melanie and Matthew
Dear Lucy and Jesus
Now that the dust has settled and we are back at work and the last bit of rose has left our system, we wanted to send an email to say thank you for everything. We know that there were quite a few challenges on the day that would have been better if they didn’t happen (wind, children, hairdressers, electricity….) but it is to your credit that I only found out about them afterwards when everything was sorted.
I genuinely can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and effort. You are an amazing team and achieve incredible things in quite stressful circumstances. We are so excited to get the photos and the video to catch up on all the bits we missed. Everyone you recommended to us on the day was brilliant and I hope you have made a great new contact with Liza, the girls makeup was certainly the talk of the evening!
I’m so sad that our time has come to an end, it seems so long ago that I found the floral heart on Pinterest!, but feel excited for the new brides and grooms who you will create magical days for. I will follow all your social media boards with interest to see what you are up to.
With love and very heartfelt thanks and best wishes

Hi Lucy and Jesus,
Apologies for the delayed thank you but this was the biggest thank you I was saving.
Thank you both SO much for all your amazing support and ultimately most beautiful wedding on the day,
WOW it’s so hard to put into words how truly incredible the whole experience was – people always said that your wedding is the best day of your life but you never really believe that until it happens. You really translated all my ideas into reality and turned the hacienda into the venue of dreams. We’ve had lots of feedback to say it was the most beautiful wedding people had been to and the temple with the floral circle of love looked incredible – i wish i could go back and relive the moment watching it as a spectator. You really did do such a tremendous job and i can safely say it would have been a very different experience had i not found you – good old Google!
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU SO MUCH again for everything – it feels strange not being in daily contact!
Here is our official review:
We got married at Hacienda San Rafael and had the most amazing few days thanks to The Boutique Wedding Co who helped organise the festivities. I couldn’t have asked for a better team around us who helped create the exact wedding we had envisaged. I worked collaboratively with both the venue and Lucy and Jesus from The Boutique Wedding Co to plan the whole weekend – i really couldn’t have done it without their help. Lucy helped bring to reality even our most left field ideas and everything was done so effortlessly. Even though i myself work in events, i completely trusted Lucy and Jesus to style and dress the wedding without having to do any work myself on the day which is so key when you’re getting married. I’ve seen far too many couples work up until the 11th hour to get something done on the actual day of their wedding which i think devalues the experience for them. Lucy and i were also able to plan the wedding together long distance very easily and she always replied to my e-mails/texts/calls straight away. I really couldn’t have done it without their help and i am very lucky to have found The Boutique Wedding Co online. Our friends still talk about the wedding and i am sure we will be back there in the coming years to throw another party!
Love Andrea and George x

Dear Lucy and Jesus,
Where do we begin! We have to start by saying a huge thank you and expressing our heartfelt appreciation for the critical part you played in making our wedding day so special.
From the moment we starting speaking to you and came out to Spain to meet you, we immediately warmed to you and admired your passion for what you do. It was an easy decision to hire you as our wedding planner and we have not looked back – we have so enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you over the last 2 years and hope to stay in touch!
One thing we have loved about having you as our wedding planner is that you strive to make each wedding unique and personal to each couple. You took the time to get to know us and understand what we wanted our wedding day to be, and then made it even better than we could have imagined!
Throughout the wedding planning process you have been super organised, calm and in control – as a couple planning our wedding from abroad this is exactly what we needed you to be as it reassured us that everything was in order and safe in your hands. You have been so responsive at all times, keeping us up to date and making sure we were always on track. Even though we are sure you have been very busy, you always treated us as a priority and never ever rushed us. In fact, you have spent countless hours talking to us on Skype and over email and you have maintained your passion and energy throughout – frankly you have had the patience of a saint working with us for the last 2 years!
You created a venue shortlist for us based on our specification which led to us finding our dream wedding venue. Casa la Siesta is truly a magical place and was everything we wanted for our wedding and more. We really enjoyed visiting the venues with you and sharing your company over some wonderful lunches too!
You have such a brilliant eye for style and are totally up to date with modern wedding trends. All of the styling of our wedding was so beautiful and tastefully put together. Your calligraphy skills are also amazing! You did such a fantastic job with our wedding stationery, the seating chart and hand written place cards were so authentic and stylish and you must have put a great deal of time and care into creating these for us.
We were reliant on you to help us source all of our vendors from photographer to DJ to hair and make up artists, flowers and cake etc. We trusted all of your recommendations – which paid off massively! We were honestly so happy with everything and your advice and guidance was invaluable to us. Not only did you source the vendors for us but you organised everything so efficiently, making sure our requirements were understood perfectly by all and that a smooth schedule ran on the day itself – this took all of the stress away from us, leaving us to simply enjoy our day to the fullest.
On the day itself both you and Jesus were fantastic. You worked so hard dressing the venue and setting up various areas, we especially loved our fabulous dessert station and polaroid photobooth. You also coordinated all of the vendors and make sure the wedding ran perfectly in our eyes. If there were any issues they were dealt with discreetly by you without us even noticing. It felt like you were always one step ahead and anticipated what we might need before we even realised it – just amazing!
Many of our guests commented on how wonderful you were and it was a pleasure to have you play a part in our wedding. We cannot recommend you highly enough and think that any couple would be lucky to have you as their wedding planner!
Wishing you much success in the future – you really deserve it!

Hi Lucy and Jesus!
So great to hear from you! We’ve been absolutely loving being married – it’s been so much fun so far! We’re both so happy and have even planned a second honeymoon to Thailand for January next year. I keep joking that we could keep taking honeymoons forever!
Marty and I have actually been meaning to email you to thank you for all of your hard work that you put into the wedding. It was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have done it without you!
We really appreciate all of your support, advice and recommendations throughout the planning – all of the vendors you recommended were absolutely spot on. I absolutely loved Lottie and Linda (we had such a ball at the trial and before the wedding with all of the girls), Matt McGurk and the flamenco show were beautiful, the food from Gusto Marbella was so delicious and Ryan Fuller and the electric saxophonist were an absolute highlight! The dance floor saxophone is really something we haven’t stopped talking about and a memory we will definitely remember for many years to come! That’s not to mention all of the other vendors you liaised with on our behalf – the florist, the calligrapher.
We would also highly recommend for your other weddings Natasha (she was wonderful and made the ceremony so relaxed and fun which was just what we wanted), and Mireia and Pedro who were just so much fun (we’ve seen a couple of the ‘sneak peak’ pictures from the wedding and they are looking amazing!).
We (and all of our guests) couldn’t believe how hard you and the team worked in the lead up to, and on our wedding day. Marty and I absolutely loved getting to know you and Jesus throughout the process and there was a little part of me that was sad when you left the day after the wedding because it had been just so wonderful working with you.
We’d love to write you a testimonial for your website and do anything else we can to help your business. We both think you charge way too little for the hard work that you do, and we feel lucky that we were able to work with you before too many people find out how wonderful you are. I expect you’ll be fully booked out for the next few years and many more after that!
Lots of love,
Nat and Marty
Patricia and KC
Dear Lucy and Jesus,
We wanted to wish you all the best in this coming year and thank you again for your help with our wedding. Though we are a bit removed from the big day, we wanted to take the time to really express our gratitude. From our first Skype call, you eased our worries about long distance planning and gave us confidence. You immediately showed a vested interest in us, who we were, and the kind of wedding we wanted. Because of this, our wedding truly reflected us and exceeded what we envisioned. Thank you for the months of planning and fitting our busy schedules into your even busier ones. Thank you for helping make our big day as special and as memorable as it was. We could not have done it without you both. We wish you the best of luck in your weddings this year, though we are sure you won’t need it.
All the best Tricia and KC

´Despite a number of trips to Spain, we really needed help with finding good suppliers and Lucy Bennett at The Boutique Wedding Co in Spain (together with her partner Jesús) was invaluable help. Lucy was our girl on the
ground, filling her car to the brim with candles, flowers, pomegranates (not easy to hunt down in June, months before the fruits come into season), hurricane vases, easels, signage and even props for a Moorish themed chill out area. And despite all of that she didn’t squash the piñata she sourced for us and filled with glow sticks!”
“We had a great time getting to know Lucy and Jesús during an impromptu bar crawl in Granada one cold March night. Lucy quickly got the look and vibe I was going for and was our trusted guide to suppliers and the sometimes very different ways in which suppliers work over there. She was also realistic and knew which things were just not going to be available (or available within budget) in Spain.”
“Lucy and Jesús worked incredibly hard to help realise our vision, not only on the design side but also liaising with a coach provider to make sure that the guests were picked up from central Granada and helping to secure a great bar in the old Albaicin quarter of Granada for our welcome drinks on the Friday before the wedding.
My personal highlight was probably seeing the chapel for the first time, which Lucy had beautifully decorated with dozens of candles in hurricane vases along the aisle, which was scattered with orange and cream petals.”

Hi Lucy and Jesus,
Thank you both so so much for everything you did, leading up and on the day, to make our wedding day so great and special for us. You both brought the dream we had to life, something crucial when you are so far away, so massive thank you!! Your kindness and input into our wedding will stay with us forever.
Right from the first Skype call you made us fall in love with your enthusiasm and pure passion. The ideas you gave were beautiful without you ever pushing us. You made what we described come to life and kept everything so unique.
Looking back when you drove us to see venues and came to our tasting, you must have been inundated with emails and work, but we never felt any less than your top priority.
At the tasting you provided your ideas and support with no pressure. We really felt as if we were out for dinner with 2 great friends 🙂
The day was beautiful – your friendly nature also made our family and friends so comfortable. You were on call for everything but I’m sure did problem solving to, but we never noticed a thing.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so memorable and perfect. Words can’t even start to express the ease and beauty of the process. We will never ever forget the part you played in our wedding.
We are thinking of you both so much and everyone who mentions our wedding also mentions how great you guys are, so thank you again.
Here is our Testimonial for you!
Lucy and Jesus gave us the wedding of our dreams – right from the venue searching to the day, and beyond (Lucy even offered to take my wedding dress back and organise me a courier to the UK!!) no job/idea was ever to small. I could not recommend this company enough – they personalised every detail in line with our ideas, and made our dream day happen – the biggest thank you – best of luck making people as happy as you made us – we know these two can do it 🙂 Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Dear Lucy and Jesus,
We just got back to Dubai yesterday after a few days of rest and relaxation in and around Andalusia (excepting our hike to the top of Mulhacén which was quite tough!)
Thanks very much for your email and of course all your hard work and optimism throughout the last 10 months of wedding planning! We can’t believe how quickly time flew by and now our wedding is a wonderful memory that we will cherish forever.
We enjoyed every single moment of our wedding week and of course, the grand finale which was our Wedding Day was perfect in our minds. All the details were beautiful and we wish we had more time to admire each element in full, but we’re looking forward to being able to see it all in the photos and video when we get them.
Our friends and family all had an amazing time as well and we feel so blessed that our wedding turned out exactly as the celebration of our family bonds and friendships that we envisioned from the beginning.
We feel very lucky to have had The Boutique Wedding Co. as our wedding planners and are delighted to hear that you enjoyed all the different cultural elements, though it meant for a longer work day for sure!
Thanks again and all the best wishes, we will definitely keep in touch!
Here is our Official Testimonial:
We feel very lucky to have had The Boutique Wedding Co. as our wedding planners for our wedding in Malaga, Spain in June of 2016. Throughout the 10 months of wedding planning, Lucy and Jesus were attentive, responsive and professional – from the venue selection, to planning the details of the wedding, and of course setting up and co-ordinating everything on the wedding day itself. In particular, our wedding venue (Castillo de Santa Catalina) had decided quite last moment that they would book another wedding on the day prior to ours, although we had already booked the venue for two days, months in advance. This could have been a disaster as our wedding day involved two ceremonies and we had planned an early start, whereas having another wedding the day prior would mean that the wedding party before us would only check out of the venue at 11am on the day of the wedding. However, Lucy and Jesus were able to negotiate with the venue to make sure that our wedding day plans were not delayed (and that we had somewhere else to stay accommodation wise the night before) and we hardly missed a beat on the day of the wedding. As this was a destination wedding, we had little knowledge of the local resources available to us. However, all the suggestions that Lucy and Jesus gave us (for bachelor and bachelorette activities, accommodation, local tours and activities for our guests, reception dinner) were exactly what we had hoped for, and our friends and family all had an amazing time in Malaga. Finally, all the elements of our wedding day came together beautifully and we could not have asked for a more perfect day! We would definitely recommend The Boutique Wedding Co. to anyone wishing to have a bespoke, beautiful and personalized wedding in the south of Spain!
Alethea & Alex
Nicole and John
Dearest Lucy and Jesus,
I hope you are both well and crushing the rest of this wedding season! I just wanted to reach out with an true letter of thanks for all you did for us on what was the best day of both our lives. It was beyond magical and carried us higher than we could even dream. Every single person walked away from our wedding saying it was the best wedding they’d ever been to because of you and Jesus’ tireless work and commitment. I could never thank you enough for crafting the most important and perfect day of our lives, it truly was everything we hoped for. (this is just an extract of the full review- to read in full please Visit the Blog Post A Heart felt Thank You.

We’re now back from Sicily and wanted to get in touch to say thank you so much for everything you did in planning the wedding. We had the most wonderful weekend, and all our guests are still talking about what a good time they had. I think we all just wish we could do it again!
You guys were fantastic from start to finish and we couldn’t have managed without you, either in the run up or on the day itself. Thank you!! We would recommend you to anyone so if you want us to put a review somewhere, or you want to put new clients in touch with us for our feedback we’d be happy to do so.
I’m sure we’ll be back in Andalucia soon, so hopefully catch up with you then.
Lots of love
Laura and Rich xx
Heres our review …We were delighted with the Boutique Wedding Co. Lucy and Jesus were fantastic, from the first introductory skype call, through spending their weekends helping us find the perfect venue and talking us through all the details, to creating the perfect wedding weekend for us in Tarifa. They were enthusiastic, creative and professional, and we couldn’t have asked for more. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We just wish we could do it all again!
Jenny and Maurits
Dear Lucy and Jesus,
THANK YOU!! We couldn’t dream that our wedding could be so fantastic as it really became! The location and the styling and design was absolutely fantastic, and that because of you guys. We are so thankful!
The week after was absolutely fantastic too. We were sleeping for 14 hours every night (I think we were more nervous than we thought😂) Stina was digging the sand and Sigge played football with some spanish boys all day long.
Again thank you for the best day ever!
Jenny and Maurits
Annette and Nikolas
Dear Lucy and Jesus,
Thank you for all your effort and help before and during our wedding day. We are really pleased with the styling and design – everything looked so beautiful, both in the ceremony room and outside. Thank you for paying attention to small details such as moving the pictures of our grand parents to downstairs etc. It really made a difference.
Also, we are really happy with all the musicians. We have received a lot of great feedback about Conbrio as well as Matt with flamenco girls. So it would be nice if you could forward our greetings and a big thank you for all of them. Also, the baby sitter was really nice, social and good with children. The flowers and my bouquet were stunning. And, the pictures we have seen from Radka are amazing!
We were so lucky to get such a sunny and warm weather that evening and the day for us was really a dream come true. Also our guests were so pleased with everything, and really loved Castillo de Santa Catalina as a venue. They (like we did) also really liked the food and wine – so we would like to send big thanks to the staff of Castillo as well. We have received such great feedback, e.g. one of my friends said that someone must organize a wedding at a moon to top her experience (holiday and the wedding with all the small details and people). It definitely was not a traditional Finnish wedding, and our guests were so pleased to be part of the day. We definitely made our parents happy and proud to host/be part of such a celebration. Sadly you were not able to understand much from the speeches, but there were a lot of emotional and beautiful things said – and most people were crying during the ceremony – especially me! 😉 And, our guests continued partying until the morning, some were still drinking red wine at a jacuzzi at 5 am.
It was a pleasure working with you Lucy! We could not have done it without you (and Jesus). Warm thank you for everything!
Annette and Nikolas
Thomas and Ellen
Dear Lucy and Jesus,
Thank you, thank you thank you!
The vendors you found, they were all great! You were also very (very) responsive! Even when busy you took the time to send over a quick e-mail to confirm you had received mine and that you were on it (whatever that it may be). That was always very reassuring. On the actual day, you also reminded me of a Duracell bunny. You just had endless energy and kept running up and down all those stairs, amazing!
Decor and Styling: While sitting at the dinner table I at times really pinched myself to make sure I was not dreaming. Because it all looked dreamy! So many people mentioned that it looked like a celebrity wedding or a wedding you read about in a bridal magazine. The lights, oh my god all the lights. So pretty. The pool was also very romantic with the petals and the candles.The tables looked really beautiful and classy too.
Dessert table: WOW WOW WOW!! This was really your pièce de resistance!! Oh my god! While I was walking down to the pool for the dinner and saw it for the first time I cried. It was like from a girly fairytale. So incredibly beautiful and utterly perfect! From the actual desserts to the decorations! The white table was perfection! The cake stands were beautiful. The vases and flowers looked gorgeous. The way and the place you wrapped the gold sequin cloth was so tasteful. And this pretty cake cutter was the cherry on top. I could not have imagined this any better, it surpassed my wildest dreams by a mile! (and then some). The attention to detail that you displayed at the dessert table (I mean the cutest mint ribbon around the cake cutter??) was out of this world. I cannot praise your dessert table enough!
The Party: The courtyard looked sooooooooooooo beautiful with the lights above !!!!!!!! Thank you Jesus! I loved loved loved it all! It was the perfect party! It just looked so good and it was just so much fun to be able to be outside! Again, that fountain! So pretty!
Nicole and Marco
Our deepest gratitude to Lucy and Jesus. Beyond our wildest imagination they brought our dream wedding to life. To think this elopement was all planned in a week and a half with some magic touch of the universe, they captured all of the amazing emotions in one day that will last us a lifetime.
They were so incredibly easy to work with, an invaluable partner and friend, and helped us create this truly memorable day and space for us. We are forever grateful that they were part of our adventure.
We cannot recommend their services enough. Rest assured, all brides and grooms are safe within their hands and will have such a fun time working with them. They are the best!
Like Nicole said…Thank you!!!!!, It felt like you both went above and beyond for our special day!…We really miss Vejer and Spain so much! Send love to our Vejer Family!!
Charlotte and Paul Tilley
Lucy and Jesus were absolutely amazing from start to finish. From our first skype chat, to various meetings, to the big day, we knew our wedding could not be in better hands! Her and Jesus make a great team and we trusted them with every aspect of the day. Lucy went above and beyond our expectations and became a good friend and invaluable support in the lead up to the day. We honestly cannot recommend them enough. Want to do it all over again!!”
