Sunshine Weddings celebrates giveaway at Finca Son Mir | Mallorca wedding planner

Back

Since the start of the year, Sunshine Weddings Spain has been actively promoting a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity on various social media platforms: the chance to win a free wedding or renewal of vows in the beautiful island of Mallorca. This giveaway follows the success of our 2022 event in Malaga, which celebrated 20 years of planning weddings in Spain.

Last Thursday, 16th May, on a warm spring day, we hosted a fantastic party for our staff and top wedding providers, culminating in an exciting prize draw. We chose to announce the winner during the inauguration of a new building at Finca Son Mir—one of our flagship venues on the island.

This recent addition to Son Mir, while preserving the rustic charm of the estate, has converted it into a year-round venue, offering a fantastic indoor area that protects guests from the midday heat in summer and inclement weather throughout the year.

The celebration also highlighted the achievement of completing this building within six months without disrupting any pre-booked events.

Over 200 key wedding industry representatives from Mallorca attended the event, which featured exclusive catering by Michelin-starred Fosh Catering. As guests arrived, they were welcomed with a cocktail, and the venue soon buzzed with lively chatting and laughter mixed with ambient music.

Before announcing the winner, the Sunshine Weddings family and guests enjoyed a fabulous party with great music, food, and entertainment at this stunning rustic venue. Finca Son Mir, located just 10-15 minutes from the centre of Palma de Mallorca, provided the perfect setting with its beautifully landscaped gardens and picturesque views of the rolling Mallorcan countryside.

Guests were treated to a selection of beverages including cava, white wine, red wine, and beer, alongside a delightful array of canapés courtesy of Fosh’s sister company, TAST OUT. These included salmon and cream cheese air baguettes, corvina ceviche served in glasses, beef tartare, chicken panipuri, shrimp cones with achiote and guacamole, mini brioche pulled pork, and pork crackling with sour cream and chimichurri on a corn puree base.

The culinary experience also featured food stations, including a Pata Negra style cured ham grazing table and an outdoor taco station that was a big hit. Signature cocktails, such as the Fosh basil smash martini and Jalapeño mango margarita, were also served throughout the evening, accompanied by live entertainment and music.

As the evening progressed, it was time for the anticipated winner announcement. Guests gathered in front of a beautifully decorated area where Sunshine Weddings CEO and founder, Scott Gibbons, delivered heartfelt speeches, thanking his team and all the providers for their outstanding service and hard work.

Scott briefly expressed his excitement for the night ahead and pride in the competition, which offered a free wedding at Finca Son Mir. He highlighted the significance of the new building, transforming Son Mir into a premier year-round wedding venue. He also acknowledged Fosh Catering, Epic Film, Toni Pons, Joanna Walton Flowers, and Lo Music for their crucial roles in making the event and competition possible. Scott concluded by inviting Kevin from Fosh Catering to spin the roulette wheel containing the names of all entrants.
