  1.           The boom of intimate and destination weddings

Until recently, weddings usually involved a large number of guests (some of them out of obligation), but this year, big weddings will be no more! It all changes, because this year weddings with a smaller guest list will be preferred.

Generally, these types of weddings are destination weddings that take place in other parts of the world, different from their hometowns, where the couple, along with those closest to them come together to say ‘I do’ in intimacy and privacy.

This has several advantages, such as spending more of the budget on taking care of other details and on more ways to personalise the space.

  1.           The bride and groom will decide to stand alone at the altar

Since forever, the bride and groom have been accompanied by their best men and bridesmaids, putting them in a privileged position above everyone else, but in 2023 it won’t be like that: The bride and groom will stand alone at the altar, enjoying their moment in privacy.

However, the best men and bridesmaids can be seated at the side or in another place closer to the married couple.

Traditionally the bride and groom have always been standing with their back towards the guests, mainly in religious ceremonies, but another thing that we will see in 2023 will be the bride and groom stood facing their guests at the altar, even perhaps by making a circle. Such originality at the altar!

  1.           Signposting at the entrance to the ceremony

Personalisation and attention to detail will be the key to every wedding in 2023, but par excellence, what we will be seeing the most this year will be signs and posters that indicate the direction towards the ceremony.

It is certain that we have already seen some wooden signs, but this year they will be reinforced with more innovation than ever through new signposts, such as glass ones. This element will become a must for wedding decorations!

  1.           Large arches and structures

Altars are being updated, and now appear in hexagon, circular and triangular form, as well as being suspended from the floor.

And they don’t come alone, as they will be covered in silk fabrics or velvet, flowers, herbs… because it is clear that these grand structures will be completely decorated, radiating colour, elegance and romance. Dress this structure like it deserves!

  1.           The bridesmaids refuse to disappear

Who doesn’t want to arrive at the altar followed by an entourage of their friends? Your best girls, those who accompany you to make sure that everything will go perfectly, will look incredible!

This is already all a tradition that, of course, will continue to survive, but with updates and new trends also

  1.           Upon leaving the ceremony, we won’t throw rice

Throwing rice at the married couple as they leave the ceremony is already a tradition. But as nowadays weddings are completely personalised, this little gesture is also adapted, substituting the rice for something that reflects to perfection the style and tastes of the newlyweds.

The rice can be replaced by anything you like! From paper airplanes for those who love to travel, tree leaves for a wedding in full autumn, feathers and seeds for nature lovers, confetti and soap bubbles for those who love to have fun, to coloured smoke, petals, balloons, dry flowers… The possibilities are endless and full of originality!

  1.           One dress for the ceremony and one for afterwards

So, this is not a trend, but in 2023 it will continue to be popular to have one dress perfect to walk down the aisle in and another more comfortable one that gives you more freedom to move for the banquet and party afterwards.

Two is always better! And don’t you worry if your budget isn’t very high, as you could always choose low cost options from websites such as Zara or Asos.

  1.           An eco-friendly soul

This is something that will fill any space, as well as the ceremony. Through wooden boxes, vintage furniture, recycled wooden platforms, seasonal flowers for every seat at the wedding and with reused flower pot stands.

How to arrive at the altar in an eco-friendly way? Of course, it’s without pollution! Such as on a horse or by bike and wearing dresses with organic fabrics.

Take a look at all of the trends that you will find at eco-friendly weddings this year, because they are very popular! To get married in a way which respects the environment will be the motto of wedding ceremonies in 2023.

 

And now? Are you ready yet? If that’s a yes, come to Weddings and Events by Natalia Ortiz, we are expecting you!

Luca and Anna’s Proposal with Two Mimes in Madrid

If what you need is ideas for a unique proposal, full of surprises and emotions, you can’t miss this proposal in Madrid of Luca and Anna, an Italian couple that love the capital city.

Did you know that Spain is one of the most popular countries for Italians to go on holiday?

Well, the dream of the groom-to-be, Luca, was to return to his home after his holiday engaged to his girlfriend, and boy did he manage it!

So, if you need inspiration, don’t miss this engagement. We will tell you every detail.

Around Valentine’s Day

The Italian couple came to Spain for a weekend, specifically the 14th February, which meant they enjoyed the bank holiday of Valentine’s day in Madrid.

Luca wanted to propose during their holiday in Spain, so this way, his girlfriend wouldn’t suspect a thing. So, when she least expected it, he took out a ring and asked to marry her.

Luca decided it was time to go one step further and so invited his girlfriend to the capital city at the most romantic time of year: Valentine’s Day.

And on holiday we are all more relaxed and calm, which means it’s the perfect time to ask someone to marry you.

The Location, Retiro Park in Madrid

While they were taking a walk in the park, and without the bride suspecting a thing, we took care of organising everything in the heart of the city, the beautiful Retiro Park.

This park has different areas perfect for carrying out an engagement: a lake, a Crystal Palace botanical gardens of la Rosaleda, fountains, etc. 

Retiro is one of the prettiest and biggest parks in the capital. This is why we love it! Because its views are very photogenic and perfect for a proposal. There are hundreds of colours that give off an incredible light in pictures!

A Small Argument with the Best Reconciliation

As an anecdote to this proposal, note that minutes before Luca got down on one knee, the couple argued.

Yes, she decided to walk alone in the park and, as she wasn’t having too much fun, Luca didn’t know whether to go ahead with the plan or not. But, he was so in love with her and knew that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her, so he decided to go ahead with the surprise.

And just as well! Because it turned into the best make up!

Two Mimes Entered the Scene

In Retiro Park there are many street artists, which is why it was the perfect plan so that Anna didn’t suspect a thing when two mimes banded together to form part of the proposal.

Anna was walking through the park alone when, suddenly, two mimes appeared and started the role play for the proposal while music, prepared specially by Luca, played in the background.

The mimes took hold of Anna with both arms and directed her to the location, she couldn’t believe it! The mimes started acting out a love story and they handed her two red roses when suddenly… her boyfriend appeared!

Italian Music with Personalised Lyrics in the Background

What is a special moment without music?! Nothing! For this reason, the violin was in charge of enlivening the evening. This instrument was witness to all of the action, and it wasn’t until the third song that Luca appeared.

During the third song, accompanied by Italian lyrics, Luca told his and Anna’s love story, between loud laughs and emotional tears, she couldn’t say no.

The Grand Finale, Champagne!

After the decisive “yes” from Anna, the Italian couple popped the champagne and gave a toast to eternal love. Because every celebration must have a good toast and exquisite bubbles!

The Decoration was not lacking!

For the setting of the proposal, we couldn’t leave romance aside when decorating, and this is why we made it unique with decorations.

As well as the mimes, the fountain and the plants that already decorated the park, at this proposal, rose petals, red helium balloons attached to the ground and a beautiful bouquet of red roses that Luca gave to his girlfriend couldn’t be forgotten.

 

At Weddings and Events by Natalia Ortiz we don’t want you to forget any details! We love organising surprise proposals that always have a happy ending.

So, if you are thinking about proposing, We are waiting for you! Because there is nothing more marvellous than spending the rest of your life with that person that makes you feel so special.

A proposal under the magical sunset of the Maspalomas Dunes

More and more couples are taking the next step: marriage proposals. Indeed, this is something that is still flourishing and that will never go out of style. We love proposals just like this one in Maspalomas.

The groom wanted to surprise his bride with a proposal during their holidays in Gran Canaria, at the Maspalomas Dunes, and what a surprise it was!

When the groom contacted us a few months ago about his trip to Maspalomas, asking us if we could be his partners in crime for one of the most important moments of his life… of course we said yes! We got down to work to organize this unforgettable moment in a matter of minutes.

Continue reading to hear all the details.  

A mix of desert and oasis

Nothing better than saying “ I do” under the sunset of the Maspalomas Dunes. These 400 hectares of nature are very famous in the Canary Islands for their beauty and variety of ecosystems, although it may not seem so!

Indeed, the couple got engaged in a nature reserve overlooking a gorgeous beach, on a field of dunes of organic sand, and near a palm forest and a brackish lagoon.

A real luxury!

The decor, sober and classic

While the dunes alone are a unique setting that needs little decoration, we put the icing on the cake with a series of candles on the sand, in a heart shape.

This way we gave this moment and place a romantic and warm touch. Sometimes less is more!

White, the main protagonist

The outfit always has to go with the moment, and that is why the bride and groom did not hesitate for a second to wear the color of purity and peace to become fiancé and fiancée.

The bride looked spectacular, wearing a flowing white shirt with light transparent horizontal lines and a pleated midi skirt in dusty pink silk. She accessorized the look with a white pirate-style headscarf with orange and reddish print. And for her shoes… nothing more comfortable and daring than a pair of white converse!

The groom on the other hand was also very elegant but comfortable at the same time. He opted for a white shirt and black jeans. Just like the bride, he wore white sneakers for the occasion.

The ring that left everyone speechless

The astonishment was immediate, and the bride could not wait to say “I do” when she saw such a diamond. The groom placed the solitaire-style ring on her, a square ring full of small diamonds and a huge one in the center, and they immediately fell into a tender kiss.

An eternal memory 

It was all captured in some amazing pictures! Just as amazing as the moment experienced by the bride and groom. And all thanks to the best wedding and event planner, Natalia Ortiz, from Weddings and Events by Natalia Ortiz and Perfect Venue, who always achieves a sublime organization.

We are eager to help you organize the proposal of your dreams so don’t hesitate and contact us, we’ll start right away with your preparations!

In the meantime, you can also get inspired with these ideas for proposals in Spain, with this proposal in the Retiro, or with this proposal in the Castle of Santa Barbara.

Glamour everywhere

Bridal morning full of freshness at the Hotel Urso & Spa in Madrid

A very special morning

Today’s bride surprised us with her dazzling southern beauty and her laughing smile illuminated the distinguished setting in which we find ourselves today. 

We’re talking about no less than the Hotel Urso & Spa, found in Salesas, a very central neighbourhood of Madrid. We couldn’t have chosen a better venue to shoot such a glamorous editorial. 

A room to relax in

The morning started with a lot of self care in one of the luxury bedrooms of those available in this sophisticated hotel. Here we can see the bride relaxing in a pretty white silk robe, with a strapless nightgown, sipping a coffee while reading her favourite magazine surrounded by scented candles and roses. 

The bride gets ready for her big wedding

Once she has been made up with eyeliner and a bright red lip colour, the bride looks radiant with her hair in the wind, and she is ready to put on her wonderful dress. The dress she chose is by Rosa Clara, an elegant dress with a lot of lace on the chest, a sweetheart neckline and a boat neck thanks to the sleeves, which in this case are straps that fall on the shoulders. The dress ends in a full skirt, many layers and embroidered details giving an image of lightness and elegance at the same time.

We can see her happy and flirtatious, posing in different areas of the room. On the luxurious vintage mustard-coloured sofa with plenty of white and pink roses around her and an incredible bouquet, on the bed, by the window, in front of the mirror.

Por último, la novia no se olvida de su mascarilla, muy importante por la situación que nos ha tocado vivir, que resulta estar bordada en un tono oscuro acorde con su estilo.

Magical wedding in La Cartuja de Ara Christi

Can you imagine your wedding day in a Carthusian monastery? Well, it’s possible or else, what would we tell the couple in today’s article. They celebrated a spectacular wedding in the rooms of Ara Christi.

A Charterhouse built in 1585 by Fray Antonio Ortiz, sent by the Roig family of Valencia and which today has become a majestic Charterhouse. This place is very popular among the couples, who wish to marry, either civil or religious, because among its premises is a church, gardens, cloisters, halls, garden, dance area and stable.

When you celebrate your wedding in the Carthusian Monastery of Ara Christi, just 20 kilometers from Valencia, you will be able to accommodate up to 3,000 people in the garden and up to 500 indoors,

La Cartuja also has the old Casa del Prior, which offers rooms and all accommodation services for the bride, groom and guests.

At the wedding, the gastronomy was Valencian. What is more Valencian than a paella? But don’t panic, because there were also menus for hypertensive people, diabetics, vegans and vegetarians, they even presented the wedding cake!

Also, a very original element were the wedding invitations, as well as the complementary elements, made by María Elena, from Tuinvi, a graphic design studio. They were made of handcrafted and digital techniques such as watercolor, textures and grammages, among others.

The envelopes were red with a white handwriting, a botanical-inspired design with a flower pattern on the inside of the envelope as well as on the top of the invitation, while the bottom was a simple calligraphy.

These invitations were accompanied by complements such as white ribbons, floral seals and tassels on the envelopes, which were closed with white wax, as in the past.

These details were also found on the chairs of the couple, from which they hung a poster with the illustration of the characteristic flower of the invitation, a red tassel, and two white fabric ties.

As for the floral decoration, the touch of color was put by Laura Ris with her artisan flowers that began in 1964, the third generation with 20 years of experience already.

This decoration was made of a great variety of colors and types of flowers in blue, rose, burgundy and dark yellow accompanied by large green leaves.

These same flowers were entangled in large circles of flowers that hung in the air, as well as in the centerpieces of tables and in the bride’s bouquet, whose stems were closed in a wide strip of burgundy color.

Ceibo was the rental company of furniture and all kinds of elements that created the atmosphere, through wooden chairs of different styles, white cushions, different tablecloths between tables, and so on.

The tableware was gold together with glassware and porcelain. From the same gold were the candle holders and lanterns that were arranged by the tables, which were numbered with glass frames with the illustration of the flower that appeared in the invitations, as well as in the napkins.

Valerio Luna was the bridal firm in charge of dressing the bride, a designer who launches a collection dedicated exclusively to women who have dresses full of feelings that tell a story.

Elegance and simplicity in its lines, chantillí, gauze, tules and creps decorated with small applications of rhinestones that decorate the necklines of the back and the openings of the skirts. This is how the dresses of Valerio Luna are composed.

Specifically, our bride wore the CALIFA model, with a deep plunge neckline, crepe close to the silhouette and sleeves finished in ruffles and feathers. If there is an element that stands out above any, it’s the flower formed by petals with crystal’s ornaments crowned on one shoulder.

The back, completely outside, was only formed by a thin row of buttons that was closing the dress. It is worth mentioning the elegant tail finished off with even more flounces.

The makeup and hairstyle of the bride were realized by Chicherka, a makeup artist based in Valence who carried out a semi-collection of waves through all her blond hair, which left some fine loose fringes on both sides of the face.

The makeup was composed of shades of grey and silver with some brightness and smoky eyes with illumination in the corner. The lips, in pink tones, were very natural in order to be able to kiss his fiancé on the big day.

The groom stood out for his elegance and his exclusivity, with a design by Garrido Ceremonia, a firm with more than 50 years of dedication to making suits for the most emblematic and important events in life.

He stood out with a blue navy jacket suit with paisley print, a print of Persian origin which takes the form of a curved tear or a large comma. The lapels of the jacket were in black tone, to set with the pants, which accompanied with a white shirt and a bow tie in the blue navy of the jacket. 

The wedding was planned by Natalia Ortiz, the wedding planner, who didn’t leave any detail in the hands of Ekatarina and her fantastic photographs.

A Wedding Amongst The Orange Trees On The Beautiful Island Of Mallorca

Celebrating a wedding in Mallorca never goes out of fashion, this charming Mediterranean island is one of the most popular destinations for couples to get married, and even more so if it’s at any of the country estates (also called fincas) this island has! 

Yes, you read it right, Mallorca is not only instantly captivating for its landscapes, warm climate and friendly people, but also for its estates made of traditional stones.

That’s why our bride and groom today chose Mallorca and a finca to say “I do”!

Will you join us to find out what this romantic wedding amongst orange trees was like?

The venue: the Binigual estate, an estate like no other.

This estate was chosen by the bride and groom, and it is not just any estate, as this old farmhouse, dedicated to livestock and winegrowing has 14 houses, it’s like a village!

This means that the guests and the couple had an entire village to themselves, surrounded by vines, traditional crops and views of the Tramuntana mountain range!

And for a wedding amongst oranges, the venue chosen for the ceremony couldn’t have been any other than the field full of oranges.  

The mandarins: protagonists of floral decoration

Less isn’t more! The bride’s bouquet was full of orange tree branches, a bunch of very vivid and intense green oval leaves and small mandarins. In addition, the stems were joined together with a white ribbon, giving a very elegant touch.

The bouquets placed as centrepieces were like the bride’s bouquet, but with an added touch: flowers in different shades of orange.

A head table full of colour

Yes, colour was the protagonist, but can you imagine what it could be? Orange… no really!

Along with centrepieces and candelabras with candles, there were two of the big trends of 2021 in decoration: transparent dinnerware with gold and coloured glassware. These glasses were blue and orange, the colours of the Mediterranean!

The big wedding cake full of flavour

Nothing more and nothing less than three layers of pure flavour, where you could obviously find the acidic taste of the famous citrus fruits, no guest can resist the taste of oranges!

Although, for those with less of a sweet tooth, there was also natural fruit, and of course… oranges for everyone!

An elegant, romantic, country bride

The bride chose one dress for the ceremony and another for the reception, bold and daring!

The ceremony dress consisted of a three-quarter length sleeve of plumeti tulle accompanied by lace, a transparency that could also be seen at the waist and chest. The slight train and the entire lower part of the dress was made of chiffon fabric, which gave the bride great freedom of movement and comfort on her most special day. 

For the reception, a more casual dress was chosen. This one was short sleeved, with a back full of lace, transparencies and a skirt with a lot of volume that simulated a petticoat, just as comfortable and light as the first one!

As for the make-up, it was simple, with a predominance of pinkish tones in the shadows as well as on the lips.

As for the hairstyle, the bride opted to leave it loose, but full of waves. As a touch, she wore a thin crown that simulated small green leaves and little mandarins, and just like that… mane to the wind, and to live the moment! But the surprise was when the bride appeared with a big straw wide-brimmed hat, she looked amazing!

For the footwear, the bride insisted it had to be comfortable to last all day, that’s why she opted for a pair of straw wedges that tied to the ankle in white.

A groom who mimics his surroundings

This elegant groom was one who dared to be different, so he rejected the typical navy blue and black and opted for white and cream. 

The choice was a beige suit with a matching bow tie and white shirt, and for the shoes, very comfortable dark brown leather – perfect for a Mediterranean setting!

And let’s not forget about the invitations, place cards and menu! 

No wedding begins until the invitations are handed out, and the ones chosen by this bride and groom were in light tones, such as white and pastel pink, with cursive calligraphy, as were the place cards and the menu, which followed the same pattern.

The touch of colour was added by the painted drawings of oranges that reflected the space and theme of the celebration.

What do you think about having a wedding amongst the oranges on the famous island of Mallorca? If it sounds like your style, don’t hesitate to contact us at Perfect Venue! Why don’t we start right away? 

 We look forward to your visit! 

A very vintage wedding in an old castle

At the Campo de Madrid nature reserve, you find the Palacio de Misión, a unique building in the form of a castle. It is perfect for any type of celebration and offers a wide range of dishes inspired by traditional cuisine.

Located in the old Cáceres pavilion, the facilities are decorated like an old mansion of the city of Extremadura. This was the venue chosen by Noelia and Javier, our bride and groom, making this day a vintage and unconventional wedding.

Noelia, the bride, dazzled with an untraditional outfit. She chose a two-piece outfit, from the dressmakers’ INLOVE Atelier, consisting of a blouse and a long skirt.

The blouse had balloon sleeves in an off- white shade and some small ruffles at the front, while the skirt had a bit of a train and fine horizontal lines throughout. The outfit stood out for having an old style due to its blush grey color, which perfectly matched the groom’s suit.

The groom chose a grey tuxedo with a white shirt and black details such as shoes, buttons and tie. All from the renowned suit specialists’ Protocolo.

It is important to mention the bride’s make-up, which really stood out with her black smoky eyes and natural lips, with a bit of shine, in order to focus all the attention on her eyes.

As for Noelia’s hairstyle, it consisted of a low up-do in the form of a bun that had been previously curled to give it volume and also leave some small waves on both sides of the face

For the hairstyle, makeup and dress of the bride, the atelier in charge was INLOVE.

These preparations prior to the ceremony were carried out while the bride wore a very atypical nightdress also from the same dressmaker’s, with a V neckline joined by two horizontal stripes and long sleeves that left her shoulders exposed.

 

But do you know where these newlyweds also made an impression? Of course, in the bouquet of flowers. The stems of the bouquet were held together by long ribbons in shades of grey, white and black.

The flowers consisted of large white roses and other smaller ones in a more yellowish tone, as well as large light pink peonies, all accompanied by small green leaves.

But wait, there’s more, as in the bouquet itself there were also several feathers that made it even more unique. This impeccable result was made possible by L’ atelier de las flores.

As for the wedding invitations, with their cursive lettering, aged papers and blush grey envelopes, they followed the same traditional style as the engagement ring, with a large central pearl and small complementary and decorative stones in the form of flowers.

The Wedding Planner Natalia Ortiz was in charge of organising this wedding, while the photographer Kseniya Bunets captured these supreme photos.

The different and unique bride and groom gave their wedding day a lot of personality and style without losing the class and elegance.

The Fábrica del Canal and the planning of the most romantic wedding

 Have you ever imagined yourself sailing in a boat wearing a wedding dress or crossing stone bridges with your partner? Of course, planning a wedding like this is possible! Because there is a magical venue full of rich culture and gastronomy, and which has also been declared as a Property of Cultural Interest, and this venue is…

La Fábrica de Canal… It has it all!

That’s right! A factory has been transformed into a hotel and restaurant. This old factory was a flour mill, one of the most famous of its region, which even nowadays continues to preserve all of its machinery and character so that a couple like this could get married in this historic wonder.

In general, the weddings celebrated at this venue usually involve civil ceremonies, like the one that our couple had, allowing you to enjoy the large terraces and gardens, or even the inside of the venue where you can find a rustic atmosphere combined with the industrial.

But religious ceremonies can also take place here in one of the nearby churches that stand a few kilometres away from the old mill.

The bride and groom, throughout the day, were able to enjoy the events hall, the outdoor chill-out zone, the terrace with views of the Castle canal, DJ, a creche for the children, a children’s entertainer, a photobooth and accommodation for their wedding night.

The dream wedding decorations

The bouquet was both classic and modern at the same time, as not only did it consist of roses in pink and orange pastel shades, but it also had different types of leaves and hydrangeas. Furthermore, the stems were tied together with an elegant pink ribbon.

The bouquet matched the flowers that were placed in clear jars with water all over the venue. The altar looked most romantic as it was made with planks of wood that were covered by pink mesh fabrics with flowers to the right of it.

On the floor there were also some white fairy lights and wooden crates, and hanging from the ceiling were baskets with green palm tree leaves.

The company Celebra DIY, who directed the wedding, offered a personalized service where they not only took care of every little detail, but also designed the decorations for the entire wedding and venue, so that the bride and groom could enjoy the setting of their dreams for their wedding.

The banquet table… elegant and delicious!

The wooden table was decorated with the same flowers as those in the bouquet and the glass jars. They were laid in a vertical line along the centre of the table on top of a white tablecloth, alongside gold bottles and candles in glass jars.

The crockery was classic, with white plates, metal cutlery and engraved glasses. Furthermore, the plates were accompanied by serviettes which hung from the flowers on the table.

The Fábrica del Canal has its own kitchen and offers menus, various cocktails, showcooking, a wine bar, chill-out areas, a free bar, a ham carver, an oyster opener, a sushi bar, a candy bar, chocolate fountains… so that the beautifully decorated table was also full of delicacies!

A couple full of romance

The bride was dressed by Jesús Peiro, who has had great success with his CALA and HERITAGE collections and whose business philosophy is quality, exclusive accessories and an elegant and romantic style. This meant that our bride shone in one of his designs!

The dress was comprised of a top half consisting of a simple straight pattern with a bardot neckline, an open back and frills at the bottom. The bottom half was made completely from tulle.

The hair and makeup looks were created by Splash by Verónica Barcenilla and were also very romantic, with a wavy half-up half-down hairstyle and smoky silver and black eyeshadow with black eyeliner for the makeup.

The groom also looked very elegant wearing a navy-blue suit, a white shirt and a matching tie in another blue tone with fine lines going across to add decorative touch.

The team that made the magic happen

The photos by Riga Montano captured the colours of the decorations, the waters of the canal and the beaming smiles of the bride and groom. This spectacular wedding was organised by Weddings and Events by Natalia Ortiz.
