Today we step into the rural magic of an old Andalusian farmhouse wedding venue surrounded by subtropical trees and invite you to join us as we recall Stephanie and Adam’s superb day in the sunshine…
The farmhouse is actually a contemporary building contructed to evoke an Old Andalusian farmhouse, but with all the comforts of a luxury boutique hotel overflowing with charm and colonial elegance.
Nestled in the Malaga ‘campo’, this venue can accommodate 250 guests, with all the facilities to have the ceremony on site.
The wedding took place outdoors in the subtropical garden of this beautiful country house on the third Tuesday of June of last year. There the guests gathered in the magnificent garden area of this boutique hotel and enjoyed a welcome drink in the sunshine accompanied by a Spanish guitarist before being invited to the ceremony area.
To the sound of Eva Cassidy’s “Songbird” the radiant bride, escorted by her mother, arrived in her white dress and veil and made her way towards the dashing groom who stood under the stunning garden gazebo, which made for the perfect setting for the small intimate ceremony.
The wedding ceremony was very emotional and beautiful and finished to Chic’s upbeat “Everybody Dance” as the wedding guests threw white rose petals over the newlyweds during the recessional.
Afterwards, guests enjoyed canapes and drinks close by on an Andalusian-style terrace, where tasty dishes including: vegetable falafel with Lebanese hummus & white miso, pistachio macaroons with goat pate, prawn crackers with shrimps, guacamole & tomato chutney, vegetable samosas with a yoghurt cream and different cheeses with dried fruits & jams were passed around, all the while the wedding party enjoying an upbeat live guitar set by a local flamenco artist.
A moment when the newlyweds also enjoyed a pre-sunset photo shoot at the hands of the hugely talented Andreas Holms who captured some truly enchanting moments and warm-hearted exchanges thanks to the soft hazy Spanish sunset lighting.
Guests were then guided to the far side of the salon terrace for a feast of typical Spanish food including a succulent stater of marinated and sliced salmon with scallop, quinoa & mango tabbouleh with passion fruit caviar dressing, followed by Iberian sirloin with chanterelle cream & dauphinoise potatoes for the mains, with a vegetarian option available for those who preferred a meat-free meal.
The exceptional menu was finished with a surprise dessert named “Stephanie & Adams Cake with Cookies & Pastry cream.”
In this dreamy garden setting, moving, unique and funny wedding speeches were said and several more endearing moments were captured by the wonderful Andreas before it was time to hit the dance floor.
A magical day that finished with a night of dancing to a musical duo between one of our much loved Djs and Bongo players.
