Andalusia, this land featuring a golden sun and offering the best tapas of the country, corners full of history and a splendid olive grove hacienda like Fain Viejo.
The option which one of our couples has decided to go for to celebrate their wedding. Is there any better place than the heart of Andalusia for it?
Fain Viejo is a completely rehabilitated estate decorated with many works of art and antiquities of incalculable value with spaces perfectly conditioned for you to celebrate your wedding in the finest environment.
The venue used to be a monastery, a residence and even a prison, but the actual country house has managed to keep elements of all these histories and combine them with modern and actual elements in its great halls, dining rooms, bedrooms, windmill, library and galleries.
But the success of your event will rest in the five hectares of gardens full of olive trees, fig trees, orange trees, palm trees and pomegranates that accompany several ponds of multicoloured fish, geese, pheasants and peacocks.
Can you think about a better place to say “Yes, I do” to your partner? Well, it certainly didn’t occur to Cristina and her fiancé, who went to Cadiz, or more precisely Arcos de la Frontera, to walk towards the altar.
The decoration for this big day was marked by simplicity and sobriety, with a huge rustic carpet that stretches from the corridor to the altar. A line of white chairs had been placed on each side for the guests whilst the couple took place on a large white marble bench which featured two white cushions in order to match with the chairs.
In front of them, was a vintage openwork tablecloth and a large bouquet of fuchsia flowers on a silver vase that stood out from the rest of the decoration.
Florenea, the company who took care of the flowers, set the colorful touch thanks to small bouquets of paniculatas decorating the chairs on the way to the altar. Flowers resembling the bride’s bouquet had also been placed on both sides and used for the tables’ centerpiece.
The bride’s bouquet consisted of flowers in deep red tones, among which the calas, carnations and paniculatas accompanied by green leaves.
It is worth noting that the reception decoration followed the same rustic and vintage line as the ceremony, but this time, in blue tones: blue and white plates on wicker plates, blue and transparent glasses, silver cutlery and white napkins, on which a small branch of rosemary was placed.
As for the dress which Cristina was wearing, it was signed Maria Jesus Dominguez, a brand specialized in wedding dresses and their accessories, and consisted in a princess-cut pattern with a sharp V-neckline and a clasp on the chest.
The pattern consisted of 3/4 tulle sleeves finished off in a lace similar to the one found on the top of the dress, embroidered with some sequins, and with a smooth pattern of tulle. As for the neckline, it showed off the whole back, ending with a closure of buttons arranged in a fine line.
The bride decided to accompany her look with a simple veil of tulle along with an elegant and classic hairdo in the shape of a low bow and several loose locks on both sides of the face that complemented perfectly with a jewelry headdress in shades of bronzes and roses.
Rosario was the artist of this fabulous hairstyle as well as the simple makeup, which consisted of a pink base and more fuchsia lips, with eyes delineated in black and eyelashes that further intensified his look.
And the groom did not fall short, because the clothes, from the boutique Como Un Señor, fit him like a glove. A navy blue jacket suit and trousers combined with a baroque print vest, matching the top of the flaps of the jacket. All of this accompanied by a basic white shirt and a tie of the same baroque print, with a jewel at the center of the tie that brought a touch of supreme elegance.
