Dear Scott, We would like to thank you for the way both you and your team organised the day.
I would especially like to mention some points that I feel you excelled in ensuring that the day turned out so successfully.
1. Your prompt reply’s to all the queries by email and text on and before the big day.
2. The courteous and very helpful staff (Susie and Julie)
3. Your knowledge of hotels and all the necessary services associated and needed on the day.
4. Your recommendations on photographer, florist, make up artist and hair stylists who all made great efforts to make the day what it turned out to be.
5. Your attention to every detail and your experience conveyed in the days before to make Jill relaxed and prepared.
I would have no hesitations in recommending your team to any would be bride and can only express my gratitude to you all and wish you continued success.
Michael and Jill Gallagher.

When Barn said to me that he wanted to get married abroad I immediately thought sun, sea and honeymoon all in one.
So I agreed and we started searching the web.
My now mother in-law came across Sunshine Weddings Spain and asked me to send them an e-mail. I put my details in and the following day I had an e-mail back from Suzie.
Suzie explained everything to me about what they do as a company. There were pictures attached to the e-mail sent with venue suggestions, and there was one that stood out to me.
I fell in love with the Hacienda just by looking at the photo, I could not believe that this was everything I have ever wanted. I e-mailed Suzie to ask about the Hacienda. I had lots of questions and Suzie was there with all the answers. Suzie e-mailed me back with a quick response and I then realised that the Hacienda was great value for money.
It was suggested that we come over to look at the Hacienda and see what we thought of the place.
We booked our flights for October ’13 and stayed for 3 days.
Suzie recommended a great hotel, which was local to the Hacienda so we could also enjoy our stay. We arrived in October and got a taxi from the airport to the hotel.
The next day we met with Scott who also is the senior planner in souther Spain, for Sunshine Weddings Spain.
Scott took use to see the Hacienda, I still remember the feeling I got when we pulled up to the Hacienda, Barn & I smiled at each other and new that this was the place for us.
Scott took us all around the Hacienda inside and out. It was beautiful.
Scott then took us to a little tapas restaurant in the square of Mijas were we talked though everything. Scott wanted us to leave Malaga with a clear idea of how much this could cost us, so we could then make a decision if we could afford everything or not.
Scott put a schedule together for us. This put all the average costs in for each item we would need e.g Rev, Flowers, DJ, Food, Venue, Drink and Cake ect.
This gave us a good idea of the cost that we would be looking at.
Scott sent us through the schedule via e-mail.
Barn and I then spent that last day around the pool which was great as we could talk about everything and relax. Barn and I paid the deposit for the Hacienda when we got back to the UK as we knew this was what we wanted.
I’m not going to lie to you I was nervous about paying money to someone abroad but I spoke about this with Scott and he and Suzie reassured me that this was safe and secure.
We had nothing to worry about.
Scott then introduced me to Julie via e-mail, Julie turned out to be everything to me. Julie helped me in so many ways. Helping me find everything I needed, Julie also helped me when I was freeking out at 1 am in the morning, there would always be a reply the next day to calm me down and re-assure me.
Julie kept me up to date with the progress of everything including the schedule.
Barn and I then went out to Mijas in Malaga for a second time to be introduced to everyone who would be part of our wedding. We meet the rev, the florist the cateres and the lady who made our wedding cake. We had to go and see the Hacienda again to, it was to hard to resist.
We then went through the schedule with Scott this was including the timings of everything.
This showed us how thorough. Sunshine Weddings Spain were – it was fantastic. Everything all started to come together.
We then flew out in September ’14 with all our guests, and we had a paella evening on the beach the night before the wedding which was great watching the sun set over a few drinks. The next day was the wedding it was the most perfect day I could have ever imagined.
Scott was with us from 12:00, making sure everything ran smoothly and everything was going to be on time.
We then had a day after pool party with a BBQ this was a wedding that lasted three days and it was such fun.
My wedding day was amazing, this could not have been as amazing as it was if I did not have Sunshine Wedding Spain by my side. They are a great company and I would recommend them to anyone who was thinking of getting married abroad.
