Mallorca is a picture-postcard destination wedding location, home to breathtaking virgin beaches and countless secret coves, forests, and rocky mountains. Whether you prefer to celebrate your magical day on an idyllic beach, in a lavish villa, a rustic finca, or surrounded by majestic mountains, this island has it all. Today, we invite you to explore the charm of a rustic wedding in one of our flagship venues on this stunning island.
Lauren and Paul, the lovely couple featured in today’s bridal story, recently tied the knot in the heart of Mallorca, in a stunning, classical Spanish finca dating back to the 17th century. The estate is surrounded by expansive grounds, including carob, orange, lemon, and almost 6000 olive trees, offering an international wedding with a local vibe.
As the sun bathed the ground’s lower lawn in golden light, Spanish guitarist Javier set the mood with ambient music, while guests arrived and enjoyed refreshing lemonade and cava. Meanwhile local photographer, Billie, captured a heartwarming first look moment between Lauren and her father. All the while, the buzz of anticipation grew as the time arrived for the ceremony to commence.
In the same space as the welcome drinks, the verdant lower lawn—graced with aromatic plants, bougainvillaeas, roses, and palm trees—set the scene for the outdoor ceremony. To the heavenly sound of Canon in D played by Javier on his guitar, the blushing bride, escorted by her father, made her entrance. She joined the dashing groom under a round bridal arch adorned with lush eucalyptus, ruscus, hydrangeas, and roses, marking the beginning of their romantic nuptials in the sunshine.
Toni, the wedding minister, conducted the late afternoon ceremony, guiding the couple through heartfelt vows and the exchange of rings. During the ceremony signing, Javier played an instrumental rendition of “Here Comes the Sun” by The Beatles, and guests were given rose petals to toss during the recessional, signifying the end of the formal proceedings. This was followed by the lively notes of Bruno Mars’ “Marry You,” serving as a cue for the newlyweds and guests to transition to the drinks reception area.
In the finca’s main courtyard, Javier continued to serenade the guests on his guitar, setting the perfect ambiance. Cold and hot canapés were served, along with a variety of drinks, allowing guests to mingle, relax, and capture heartwarming family moments as the sun dipped below the horizon, all under the skillful lens of photographer Billie, before the feasting and celebration continued on the verdant upper lawn.
Next to the historical main house and surrounded by lush gardens, the wedding breakfast commenced. All guests were served a glass of cava and water as speeches began with the father-of-the-bride. Wines, beers, and a sumptuous feast followed, featuring dishes like lightly smoked pork belly with sea scallops and Soller orange, Galician beef fillet with charred spring onions. Younger guests were treated to a specially prepared children’s menu, and just before the chocolate dessert, the newlyweds stole a moment for some breathtaking pre-sunset photos with Billie.
Guests enjoyed a half-hour of chill-out time in the dinner area before the cake cutting, followed by the first dance to the melodious “1,000 Years” by Cristina Perry, after which guests were invited inside a Spanish-styled terrace for the late evening party. A nanny service kept the kids entertained, while DJ Ferran and late-night snacks, such as mini burgers with cheese, and cold cuts with rustic Majorcan bread, tomato, and olive oil, ensured the adults had a great time too.
The festivities continued the following day with a post-wedding brunch and an exciting Catamaran excursion. It was a perfect ending to a wedding filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable memories.
On behalf of the team at Sunshine Weddings Spain, we thank Lauren and Paul for trusting us with their special day and look forward to seeing them back in the sunshine. A huge thanks also to the super-talented Billie for the use of these stunning images.
