Spanish Villa Wedding: Sarah and Andrew’s Celebration in the Sun…
Sarah and Andrew recently got married in an idyllic villa venue on the Costa del Sol, and we are thrilled to talk to them about some of the highlights of that process with Sunshine Weddings in today’s article. A big thank you to such a lovely couple for sharing their thoughts!
I have been travelling to Benalmadena for 20 years. My dad had a boat in the port there and we holidayed there, then my dad decided to move to Spain. As Spain has always been a big part of mine and my children’s lives, I would never have got married anywhere else. I adore the place, and the weather – for one – is a big part of a bride’s day! Well, it was for me…
I first found Sunshine Weddings in a magazine that a wedding planner gave me at a Spanish hotel. I looked to have my wedding there, but on flying back to the UK, I read this magazine from cover to cover. It had features on villa weddings, and then Sunshine Weddings were mentioned in there. As soon as I landed I emailed them, and then spoke to Susie who was very responsive. When we finally flew back to Spain to meet Scott, we were really impressed with him, and we carried on from there. They have been fantastic from start to finish, we’re very pleased.
Yes we did. We only looked at that villa – we fell in love with it.
It was one year of planning.
Yes, our guests were really impressed with the villa. They did not expect it to be as big and as lovely as it was. No we didn’t build in any extra time – we didn’t really have the time, however we have mostly all seen the views as we have been coming to Spain for many years!
I adored my gown, so did everyone else. The bodice was strapless and the skirt included intricate lace design on the top layer and a very pale ballet pink on the bottom layer.
No theme, just a nice and relaxed not-over-the-top ambiance…
Shona the florist was great, and it was all done via email. She was so very easy to work with. I saw my flowers only on the day of the wedding and they were stunning.
We had canapes and a buffet with fish, steak, chicken and pork. It was perfect!
Our cake was vanilla buttercream on the bottom layer and chocolate orange on the top. It was amazing.
We had a Spanish guitarist in the day and a DJ for the evening.
It sounds like the perfect end to a perfect day. And on that note, we wish our brilliant bridal couple all the very best for a long and happy marriage!
