A rustic location for a romantic Jewish wedding celebration in Mallorca…
Today’s bridal story features the beautiful Ellie and Aidan who had been waiting for their wedding day with such excitement, and it was so lovely to watch them with their friends and family enjoying such a magical day full of traditional Jewish wedding rituals.
This wedding represented everything that is great about modern Jewish wedding celebrations; full of love and laughter and all taking place somewhere unique, intimate and special.
The day started off with the hair and make up team arriving at the rustic finca, nestled in the foothills of the Mallorcan Tramuntana mountain range, and worked their magic with the girls, who all looked absolutely stunning as all the last minute details were put in place in.
As Ellie and Aidan’s guests entered the Finca, they were led to the inviting – and private – terrace area where they enjoyed refreshing welcome drinks in the shade, meanwhile the traditional Tish (a tradition that takes place before the Jewish Wedding Ceremony and involves the Groom spending time with the close males of the wedding) took place in a nearby party room that had been set up with a table and chairs. A place where the Rabbi said prayers and whisky was handed out.
Meanwhile the guests were asked to make their way through to the pretty ceremony area, where they took their seats in a quaint courtyard full of Spanish ambience and enjoyed the lively wedding ceremony that took place under the beautifully decorated chuppah (marriage chamber).
The ceremony was magical; a fairy-tale setting enhancing the moment the vows were exchanged, and, as Ellie and Aidan walked back down the aisle, now as husband and wife, they were accompanied by the uplifting sound of traditional Jewish music sung by a talented vocalist… Which continued as the wedding party moved on to the upper pool area for a selection of delicious canapes.
The newlyweds enjoyed their photo session with Matthew, and the guests were invited to take their seats in a picturesque space at the front of the house; a rustic terrace, with a backdrop of greenery fringing the table set-up and rows of string lights which added a romantic glow to alfresco wedding reception layout. Here they feasted upon a mouth-watering meal of typical Mediterranean cuisine, with a surprising, avant-garde touch served by Fosh Catering.
After the all-important speeches, bride, groom, and guests remained outside to enjoy the Jewish dancing (The Hora) , one of the wonderful highlights of this fabulously fun wedding reception. The wedding couple were lifted above the crowd on chairs, while guests sang “Hava Nagila” and circled the couple in a celebratory dance.
The music then continued in the outdoor area until midnight, where two buffet tables had been set up – as well as a bar. From there the newlyweds and guests continued partying in a second dancefloor area that had been set-up indoors, permitting the party to continue, with everyone dancing and mingling into the small hours.
