Symbolic Spanish Beach Elopement

Josh and James met via an online dating app, and although lived in different cities, they made it a priority to see each other every month and Skyped every night, so their relationship blossomed. They decided to elope while on a trip to Spain in September 2018.

With their shared love of the ocean, they began searching for the perfect location via Google, stumbling upon Esculls de Canyet on the Costa Brava and were immediately in love. “We were blown away,” said the couple.  “We thought it wasn’t real at first and both knew immediately this was the place we wanted to start our lives together. We were inspired by the rustic and rugged coastline on the Costa Brava, and we wanted to keep a somewhat formal beach theme.”

A Nature-Inspired Farmhouse Wedding in Spain with Pampas Grass & Vintage Sofas

Carlota and Pol are childhood sweethearts, though it took a few years for them to realise they were meant to be together. They reunited five years ago, and suddenly everything made sense. It was time for them to start a life together and to create a family. They were married in September just outside of Barcelona.

They were very clear what they wanted from their wedding day – a celebration of their love in a simple way. Dreaming of a place created by nature, their first stop was to find a venue. An old farm-house, full of history and surrounded by a forest, was the perfect setting for them. With warmth and authenticity as the cornerstones for the creation of their celebration, the feel of their day naturally unfolded.

A Story of Flowers: The 2019 Collection from Javier Quintela Atelier

GET READY because you are able to be presented with an almost unhealthy level of serious bridal gorgeousness by way of Spanish designer Javier Quintela Atelier and photographer Boquerón á Feira.

This shoot, organised to launch Javier Quintela’s 2019 collection, was inspired by flowers – the scent, the emotion and the beauty of them. The editorial is surprisingly simple yet incredibly striking, letting the clothing take centre stage.

Modern & Colourful Meets Industrial & Laid-Back Spanish Wedding

Laura and Bruno met in their home-town of Los Angeles, but Laura always knew she’d head back to her birth country of Spain to get married. “We were well aware that planning a wedding is a difficult task, even more so when you’re thousands of miles away!” she explained. “So the first decision we made was to hire a planner. We were so worried about the organisation, we decided to dedicate a portion of our €28,000 budget to hiring a professional to take care of all the worrying for us.” They hired Lorena of Eventos Clandestine to help them pull their destination wedding off without a hitch.

They started with considering what type of day they’d like – a party where they were surrounded by family and friends, and something that would give off their energy and love of colour. Because of the distance, it was impossible for Laura and Bruno to even attempt any DIY projects for their day, so Lorena had full reign with decor.

A Spanish Superhero Themed Wedding with a Belfast Music Hall Reception

Jamie and Michael had two very different wedding celebrations –  a small family-focused event in the scorching heat in Malaga and a second a few weeks later, for all the rest of their friends and family back home in Belfast… in the rain! The two events couldn’t be more different (the bride even changed her hair colour between the two!) but both felt completely right for them. After all, isn’t that what being a Rock n Roll bride is all about?

“We wanted our wedding to include the everyone and everything we love and to show our personalities, we didn’t see the point in changing ourselves or pretending to be something we weren’t, just for one day”, began the bride. “We both always knew we wanted to get married abroad but hadn’t decided where. After a bit of research, we fell in love with Cortijo Rosa Blanca. I hated the thought of a white wedding, I was keen to have lots of colour in our day. I also hate the smell of fresh flowers, they make me sneeze! We also knew we wanted to include superheroes, we both love Marvel and DC and have seen every single superhero movie.”

Gothic Funeral Vow Renewal in a Spanish Monastery

Andrea and Gabbi met in a job interview (Gabbi interviewed Andrea for a position on the film Shrek!), while living in San Francisco. They fell in love and were married in Sayulita, Mexico in May 2004. In fact they loved it so much they have now lived there for over 11 years! They decided to renew their vows on their 13th wedding anniversary and wanted the celebration to have a dark, gothic, funeral theme. There were just four of them in attendance: The couple and their two children. They also had their friend Jan who performed the ceremony and People True Love Tellers who took the photos and created the video.

“We have always been freaks and I always loved the idea of a black and red wedding gown, and walking down the aisle to Guns ‘N’ Roses’ Rocket Queen,” began Andrea. “At our first wedding, in a beach town overlooking the ocean, wearing white felt more right, but this time we wanted to ignore tradition entirely. We had already done the traditional wedding and so had the freedom to be playful and truly represent ourselves and who we really are. We also loved the idea of this being a funeral for our first 13 years of marriage and the start of a new commitment to each other as a family.”
