As the wedding season is preparing to close for the winter in Spain I thought it would be a great opportunity to go and visit the Sunshine Wedding Spain team in Barcelona to see how their summer had been and to discuss all the fabulous weddings that have taken place this year.
The flight as always was a quick and easy 1hr and 45 minutes from London Luton Airport and then a short cab ride into Barcelona City to stay for the night.
The next day, I was up ready and early to meet Elaine Bray our Wedding Coordinator who heads up the Barcelona Team, we met over breakfast to run through our agenda, which was a mixture of wedding venue viewings and a food tasting.
Susie from our office in Marbella then arrived and off we all set through Barcelona City on an easy train ride to meet our amazingly talented caterers Gau.
The spread they laid on was simply exquisite! Laura who runs the operation with her husband Dirk, and who have had years of experience working within the Ritz Carlton chain, wanted to offer us the same experience a bride and groom would receive when they attended a food tasting for their potential wedding in Barcelona.
I knew their food was good and have seen them in action however I have never been able to see the detail and presentation close enough to really appreciate the care and thought each table of food provides. The food not only looked good but tasted out of this world, my taste buds were tingling and I really got a feel for true Spanish food of the highest degree.
What a wonderful wedding experience for a bride and groom. The premises were set out with beautiful tables and drapes, lovely flower arrangements with food placed on long tables, all carefully and thoughtfully presented as if we were attending a wedding dinner.
Gau have had many years of experience in catering for weddings in Barcelona and provide a professional gourmet experience for any bride and groom who chooses to get married at one of the many beautiful Hacienda’s within the Barcelona region. We are extremely lucky to have them on board as our wedding caterer and with the knowledge that our wedding couples can relax and enjoy their day knowing the expectations of their guests will be met with regards to one of the most important factor of any wedding – the food!
