Mallorca, with its luxury beach resorts, turquoise crystal-clear bays, limestone mountains, outstanding local cuisine and buzzing nightlife, is the perfect place for your destination wedding.
And in the heart of the island’s mountains, yet only a ten minute drive from the island’s capital city of Palma with easy access to the airport sits a rustic wedding venue. And at this an impressive country location, the fabulous bridal couple Daniel and Leila recently tied the knot.
Join us as we relive Daniel and Leila’s most special wedding moments in today’s sentimental bridal story.
A traditional Spanish stone finca surrounded by lush farmland which offers the ideal setting for anyone wishing to host a rustic wedding filled with all the wonder that nature has to offer. With a maximum capacity for 300 guests and ceremony area on site, this estate which dates back to the 12th century and recently renovated, makes it one of the most breathtaking and popular wedding venues on the island.
Olive groves, vineyards and a tranquil silence greeted the wedding guests as they arrived at this private estate and were invited to a welcome drink of refreshing pink grapefruit lemonade, mint lemonade and cucumber water for easy mingling before they were all invited to make their way to the ceremony area.
The talented violinist, Collete, serenaded the guests as they took their seats on the lush green lawn overlooking the impressive vista of rolling hills where a Chuppah had been set up between two trees. There to the sound of “Let it go” by James Bay played on violin followed by Elton John’s “Your Song” the guests settled and eagerly awaited the arrival of the beautiful bride.
The highly anticipated moment finally arrived and to the sentimental sound of The Greatest Showman’s “Rewrite the Stars” once again played by Collete on violin, the stunning bride made her appearance on the arm of her father, and together they walked down the white-rose petal pathway to the outdoor wedding ceremony site where the handsome groom awaited.
There, the wedding nuptials took place in a special ceremony which saw the joining of Daniel and Leila as husband and wife and the coming together of two cultures, Persian from the bride’s side and Jewish from the groom’s side.
The groom, following traditional Jewish wedding rituals saw that the ceremony ended with a bang as he stomped on a glass, an act that represents one of the best-known features of Jewish weddings and symbolises the couple’s breaking with their past lives so that they can create a new family together whilst also remembering the destruction of the Holy Temple.
Following on from the ceremony, which finished with “Now that we found Love” by Heavy D as the chosen wedding recessional song the newlyweds joined their guests in the shade of the finca’s ancient stone walls for some refreshments and a selection of appetising canopies including: Macerated seasonal fruit, mini cone with tomato tartar & stracciatella, traditional salmorejo and black olive macaron with goat cheese followed by cloud of parmesan with mushrooms and truffle, crunchy herb crisp with Galician beef tartare and croquette of goats cheese, honey and truffle, all the while enjoying an up-beat guitar set—Gypsy King style—by the talented guitarist Javier.
On the estate’s manicured lawn, decorated with all the rustic touches to make Daniel and Leila’s special day unique and unforgettable, the wedding party sat to enjoy the most delicious Mallorquin cuisine, with Mediterranean Essence, at the hands of Michelin star Fosh catering in Palma de Mallorca, who provided the most amazing Kosher friendly wedding menu, starting with sea bream “A la Mallorquina’’ with sherry raisins, tomatoes, spinach and almonds and succulent Galician beef fillet for mains, a mouthwatering meal that was finished with chocolate in 3 textures with passion fruit sorbet.
As dusk settled, elegant lighting came into play, including fairy lights cascading overhead to give off a romantic vibe, a place where the all important speeches were said and where the guests enjoyed a fantastic musical duo with Colette on violin and Nathan on sax who played several dynamic sets throughout the meal.
There was no better way to kick off the party with the newlyweds enjoying their romantic first dance to Maraih Carey’s “Always Be My Baby.” with some incredible lighting provided by DJ Santana.
The party then continued with an indoor party space becoming available as of midnight allowing everyone to keep dancing and mingling into the small hours.
