Madrid, the city which will help you bring to life any of the crazy ideas that have gone through your mind; this city that offers you the opportunity to live unforgettable experiences for the rest of your life.
It may be because of all its various districts, its restaurants filled with cheerful people, its history or its culture, but Madrid makes everyone who goes there feel like they feel like they were in the stars.
This is why the city has also become a great wedding destination, both for nationals and foreign people. It is a compromise full of class, style and a lot of glamour. And if you don’t think it is the case, say it to Shelly and Nick, our bride and groom who decided to celebrate their wedding in Madrid.
Climbing large stairs, walking on big carpets and among wonderful rooms of the time, such as its halls with French pool tables, the majestic dance halls and the singular architectural elements. Don’t you think this place is a complete work of art ideal to get married?
The couple did not only chose this architectural emblem for the ceremony, but also for the banquet,during which they were able to taste the best dishes in a dining room lined with wood, crystal and bronze chandeliers, with scenic canvases of the time and even with the original furniture of 1910!
For the decoration of these spaces, the simplicity and classicism portrayed by the white flowers bouquets with green leaves arranged on the altar was more than enough.
The same white roses with green leaves made up the centerpieces of the table, placed on a bronze tray and accompanied by two large white candles which had been placed inside large crystal glasses.
On the table of the bride and groom, the centerpiece stood out, showing off the four letters of LOVE in red, thus differing from those of the rest of the guests.
The tablecloths and napkins were also in white tones, as were the crockery, with the exception of the silver cutlery and the crystal glasses.
Some details that made the difference were the menu envelope, in kraft paper, and the guests’ welcome sign on a large wooden board, also decorated with white roses and green leaves characteristic of the big day, with the names of the bride and groom and the date of their union. It was also the case for the table that had been arranged for the guests to leave their letters or take their souvenir cork bottle-top.
As for the bride’s main dress, it consisted of a mermaid cut dress and an elegant tail, completely embroidered with floral motifs, and with a heart-shaped neckline that also left her back uncovered. This design was chosen for the ceremony and the banquet.
But Shelly continued to shine! For the afterparty, she chose a completely different design: a dress full of bronze sequins that formed a pattern on a white background, with a v-neck and fine straps. Perfect to dance all night long!
For both looks, the hairstyle was the same: a low bun with two loose hair strands on both sides of the face. The updo was decorated with a row of white and pink flowers and small green leaves.
The bronze tone of Shelly’s second dress perfectly matched Nick, the groom,’s suit, who chose a brown jacket suit with flap details and darker brown pockets, like the pants. All accompanied by a bow tie in this same color.
The photographs taken by Aljosa Petric made the result very funny, and shows really well that emotion and laughter played a major part in the wedding.
Natalia Ortiz was the Wedding Planner who made everything possible and lead to the perfect result the bride and groom had always dreamed of. At Weddings and Events by Natalia Ortiz we keep on fulfilling dreams!
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.
Natalia Ortiz was in charge of the development and organization of this wedding in Andalusian lands, working hand in hand with the photographers Samuel and Helen, who captured the couple’s happiest moments during their great day.
Everyone is talking about the hidden treasure in Faín Viejo, are you ready to find it? At Weddings and Events by Natalia Ortiz we help you!

Long live the Balearic Islands! And we’re not afraid to shout it everywhere, because everyone agrees that these little pieces of land are the ideal destination for destination weddings.
Weddings in Mallorca are trending!
More and more couples, both international and Spanish, chose Mallorca for their wedding. This place has turned into the favorite place to walk towards the altar, for the magic of the place.
Why is that? For the island’s climate, the excellent communication, a gastronomy that won’t leave anyone indifferent, the odor of the sea or the views on the mountains. It is an environment with a multitude of paradisiac and original options.
Do you really need anything else?
Christina and Clayton, our American couple, had it clear
Mallorca wins records in being one of the most demanded places for foreigners (and even celebrities!) to get married in total intimacy.
And this is exactly what Christina and Clayton did, set sail for the Mallorcan island with their six guests all the way from the United States to celebrate their intimate wedding and tell themselves “yes I do” with the purest tranquility, peace and comfort.
How the wedding went
As everyone already knows, the Mediterranean climate of mallorca is envied by everyone, since it promises great temperatures during any period of the year.
This was the case for our couple, who had an extremely sunny during which they could walk round without any unpleasant surprises and in total serenity around the island’s cobblestones, go down its stairs, cross its stone arches and reach the altar by walking through a large bright green garden.
Here, their guests were already waiting for them and the ceremony began with incomparable sights on the mountains, among trees and large decorative jars.
The decoration, simple and classic
The gardens, with their bright green color were decorated with white flowers along with a few green leaves, which had been placed on large white jars as well as in the bride, Christina,’s bouquet.
Around the rest of the venue, golden chairs with white cushions and golden lanterns with veils had been placed, whilst live music was played.
On the tables, cocktails and tapas were present in great quantity. The tables matched the overall style as they were decorated with white tablecloths, golden cutlery and chandeliers.
The wedding invitations were also in the same style, green leaves drawings on a white background.
Christina took some time to relax before the ceremony as she received all the necessary care to get her ready fo the big moment.
She was wearing a dress with a heart cleavage, with embroideries and an A-cut, which, with her beautiful silhouette, made her look simply stunning. A very Balearic style. Just like his loose long hair, which provided the freshness that the island conveys.
The groom went out of the ordinary, with a navy blue jacket-suit which reminded the crystalline waters of the Balearic Islands, put the final touch of elegance.
The reception’s savors
If there is one gastronomy in this world that is full of colors, savors, creativity as well as being healthy, it is the Spanish gastronomy, and of course, the Mallorcan one.
And this archipelago has learned how to adapt to the modern area without losing the previous generations’ essence nor its traditional and cultural dishes, which you can still savor today.
And at our American couple’s wedding didn’t lack of these incomparable dishes.
Like you have been able to see by yourself, Mallorca offers a plenty of various options for any type of couple: bohemian, classical, rustic, modern and romantic.
And it is clear that whoever chooses to celebrate their wedding in Mallorca will not regret it, and will keep this day in their memory for ever, both for its importance as for its golden sunset.

The original and distinguishing touch of the style is the bouquet created by Monceau Fleurs. The bouquet is based on green leaves and vary balls of different shades in the natural cotton and with small flowers that reflect the style of locations, fabrics of various materials, textures and flowers, and create a harmonious point of contact. Bouquet is also with yellow cotton floss. Beautiful details, and charming couple.
The floral decoration of tables is based on green leaves and roses in light and pink shades, which are perfectly combined with shades of tablecloth in shades of nature and with furniture in the color of the light tree.
The fiancé is harmoniously continuing the style of the bride with his dark-blue suit, white shirt and details: a handlebars and a dark tie corresponding to his shoes.
The bride’s hairstyle is the work of the Javier Miro – hairdresser. Natural uplift from one side through a simple color ornament in green and white shades, all in accordance to the dress, carefully curly hair brings fresh and natural feelings to the bride. Makeup, in brown shades and lipstick in the same shades, brings a pleasant light on the color of the bride.
The locations chosen for photo session made by photographer Mario Trueba are beautiful historical gardens of textiles, stairs that lead to entry into the factory and its charming stamped and brick facade, also various internal locations like the teniers Hall, in which the ceremony was held, near the wooden bulk points of ceilings, near thin carpets and behind the greatness of various historical tapes, and Goya’s Hall was chosen for the banquet, decorated with various trees, plants and the portrayal light, which brings the enjoyable atmosphere to the event.

For the occasion, the bride wore a stunning long sleeve dress with a low back, from Chiffon Atelier. Whilst for her hairdo and makeup, she opted for a pretty half-up half-down style and natural colours for the face, done by Sheila Makeup Pro. On the other hand, for the bouquet which Aura Boheme was in charge of, she chose warm pink and green tones which suited the summery style of the wedding. The groom chose a classic black suit with a black bow tie and a white shirt – the perfect look for the occasion.

Weekend wedding in Madrid
We organised an elopement based in Madrid for the lovely couple Thomas and Silje. Their wedding was spread over a weekend, celebrating with their closest family and friends in the centre of Madrid. They invited 10 guests, which made the wedding a very intimate celebration, which was very personal for them.
Let’s talk about what they wore. Silje wore a spectacular dress with a V shaped neckline. It had cap sleeves which were lace, and the top of the dress was also made from lace, then it flowed into a smooth pleated straight skirt – so flattering! She opted for an elegant updo for her hair, and her bouquet was composed of pure white flowers and some greenery. Thomas looked very smart in a white shirt with a navy dicky bow and navy trousers. His head was freshly shaven for a very clean look. Gorgeous!
The style of the wedding was light & bright, pure and romantic. The ceremony took place in the Embassy of Norway, followed by the reception in a restaurant. They chose to spend the afternoon exploring the city, and the day ended with an amazing dinner.
The celebrations continued the day after the wedding, where more activities were done in the city centre – including seeing a flamenco show and a masterclass!!
The wedding was exactly as they hoped and we couldn’t have been any more happy with how the day went. Congratulations to Thomas and Silje!
Female elopement in Girona
Now an example of an elopement in Spain that we organised for the fabulous couple Julia and Alina in Girona. The wedding took place outside, immersed in nature and it was very romantic. The wedding had splashes of colour thanks to the pink and orange tones in the flowers – it was beautiful!
Both brides wore amazing and elegant white dresses, with some similarities regarding colour and fabric style, which made them look in harmony with each other, but the differences made them unique and reflected each of their personalities. They both looked stunning.
Alicante beach wedding
Let’s continue with a beach elopement that we organised for a stunning couple in Alicante. The style of the ceremony was rustic, thanks to the wooden altar and ceremony table, with romantic elements provided by the light flowers with tones of pink, light yellow and peach.
The bride chose two dresses, the first had a large skirt and long train, and the bodice was made from lace, with some see-through parts. The second dress was similar in the way that it also had a lace bodice with some transparent elements, but the skirt was straight and smaller this time. As for the groom, he opted for a a black and white suit – simple and classy!
We organised the photoshoot to be on a beautiful estate by the sea and on the beach too, and the gorgeous sky provided a stunning backdrop.
Elopement in Catalonia
We organised a stunning, traditional elopement in Catalonia for the couple Angelina and Sergei. It took place in a medieval style estate, with an extremely romantic and warm ambiance thanks to the use of lit candles.
Regarding the style of the bride and groom, the bride wore an incredible, decorative dress with a belt in the centre and a V shaped neckline – it was gorgeous and complimented her beautifully. Sergei wore a blue suit with a subtle check design and a white shirt, he looked very smart.

Fairytale elopement in La Quinta de Illescas

This estate is perfect for weddings, and the ceremony took place in a room with many glass windows, which made it a bright ceremony. The ceremony was beautifully decorated with white flowers with some greenery for the aisle and altar. Floral centrepieces dominated the banquet room and white and green became the predominant colours for the wedding, which gave it a fresh feel!
Elopement in Tenerife
We organised this gorgeous elopement for Anita and Alexey, a Russian couple, in Hotel the Ritz-Carlton Abama in Tenerife. Anita had always dreamed of a colourful wedding, and having a wedding by the coast gave her this: spectacular views of the sea and sky, and green, blue and yellow colours.
Anita chose 2 dresses for the wedding: one for the ceremony, the other to dance in. Her first dress was long, white and decorated with small rhinestones, and her second dress was short with sequins. As for Alexey, he wore black trousers and a light blue jacket for the ceremony, and white trousers and a black jacket for the dance – a stylish wedding!
This elopement took place in Buen Amor castle for the couple Irina and Anton. This castle has a medieval style thanks to its antique furniture and large halls, perfect for a traditional wedding. The ceremony took place in the castle’s courtyard, and there was an iron altar surrounded by floral and miscellaneous medieval decorations.
Irina wore a strapless dress with a skirt decorated with small flowers and a train, she had a flower in her hair to match the ones on her dress. Anton kept it simple with a white shirt and loose fitting blue trousers. It was a perfect medieval wedding!
Elopement in Mallorca
Dmitry and Aurike celebrated their stunning elopement on a beach in Mallorca. The landscape where the ceremony took place was beautiful: the blue sea contrasting with the white stones floor of the ceremony. The ceremony area was simple yet elegant, decorated with a few lovely flower arrangements.
The bride’s outfit was unique and gorgeous – she wore a white lace bodice with a pink skirt, which was a very pretty, romantic look, as well as modern thanks to the pink skirt.
The couple made good use of the private beach of the hotel where the wedding was held for a very aesthetic photoshoot, a beautiful day.
For Anjelica and Remo we organised the wedding of their dreams in Vinales Cigarral Santa Maria, Toledo. It was an outdoor wedding – both ceremony and banquet were al fresco as the landscape was too spectacular not to make use of for the wedding.
The banquet was set up on a rustic style wooden table, with flowers and a candelabra for decoration. The style of the banquet went perfectly with the landscape. Wine was an important feature too, as there was a vineyard at the venue.
The decoration and style of the wedding and the bride and groom looked amazing, a fabulous day filled with smiles.
Elopement in a lavender field
Imagine having your wedding photoshoot in a beautiful lavender field and how aesthetically stunning the photos would be. Well, that’s exactly what we did for this wedding and the result was incredible!
Katerina, the bride, wrote a country-style dress to match the countryside landscape she was in and she matched her dress with light brown boots and a straw hat. Andrey wore beige pants with a white shirt and black suspenders, and like Katerina he also matched perfectly with the surroundings. On the photos they stood out perfectly against the lavender fields – a perfect result.
This elopement was between Kaci and Dave and took place in a castle in Asturias, surrounded by mountains and in the heart of nature. The castle’s amazing stone stairs provided a perfect place for their wedding photos, and so did the landscape; the mountains and lake providing a breathtaking backdrop for this set of photos.
Kaci and Dave looked as fabulous as the surroundings. Kaci in a gorgeous, embellished dress with lots of detailing, and Dave in an extremely smart blue suit with brown shoes. A lovely wedding for a lovely couple.

Let’s face it, since the proposal all you have been able to think about is the wedding. You’ve definitely thought about a wedding in a wonderful location like a beach in sun. Who can blame you? A romantic wedding in a faraway location is the stuff dreams are made of, but just how do you turn that dream into a reality? Going it alone can be a really complicated and stressful task. A wedding is hard enough to plan, let alone a destination wedding! How are you going to pick the perfect venue, get the best food your money can buy and create the day of your dreams when you don’t know anything about the location? In comes the destination wedding planner. Not just experts in wedding planning, but experts in the destination. It won’t just save you the stress, it will save you money and time too. Destination Weddings will put you in touch with a specialist with invaluable knowledge of your dream location and put all the pieces together for you. Now just why should you choose a destination wedding planner? Here are our top 5 reasons.
A destination wedding planner is what links you with the destination of your dreams. They will be able to advise you on the best venues for each part of the day and recommend vendors they know and trust to ensure your day lives up to all your expectations. You won’t waste any time looking down dead ends, your destination wedding planner will have a list of recommendations ready for you.
It can be the smart financial choice, remember they have all the local connections
The sad truth is that unfortunately, vendors in destinations will often set their prices higher if they think you don’t have any knowledge of the area. You will not be able to know if they are giving you a fair deal or not. A destination wedding planner knows how much what you’re looking for should cost and won’t let someone take advantage of you. They will also have good relationships with their recommended vendors and may be able to use the connections to benefit you! You can rest easy knowing your flowers, cake, photos are all being taken care of by someone your planner knows and trusts, at a fair price. Don’t forget about programs within planning services, such as Destination Wedding’s preferred partner program, which offers you the opportunity of spa treatments, private events, room upgrades and more.
They do the heavy lifting
Nothing about the research, booking or scheduling of a destination wedding is easy. When you start looking for a venue in a location you are unfamiliar with, it can be a very difficult task to even start looking in the right kind of places, or you might find yourself with too many choices and you won’t know what to do. Now add in a full-time job, a time difference and you’ve got yourself a real problem. Fortunately, your destination wedding planner will do all the research for you, and bring you a curated list of options, and then you can make a much better, well informed decision. When you’ve made your choices, they’ll make sure everything gets booked and scheduled exactly as you wanted.
Offering your guests travel advice
Your planner is not just your best friend, but they can be an incredibly useful tool for all of your guests too. There’s a pretty good chance that your guests won’t have visited the location before, and might know absolutely nothing about the area, and will need guidance on hotels, travel, places to eat and things to do before they travel. Your destination wedding planner will give you recommendations on where best for them to stay, great restaurants and the perfect local activities. When booking for a large number of people, try using a booking service like HotelPlanner.com, where you can reserve a large number of rooms at a lower price.
They’ll make sure you stick to your budget
Setting a budget can be difficult to begin with, so your planner will help you decide what budget you need to get the day of your dreams. From there, they will work with you, making any adjustments necessary to make sure your wedding is everything you dreamt, and it stays below budget.
Remember, destination wedding planners understand the stresses and strains of trying to plan a destination wedding, it is their job after all! They will make the experience as simple and relaxing as it possibly can be for you, your partner and all your guests. Always stay in touch, and you’ll sleep well knowing someone trustworthy is taking care of your dreams. It will all make the day an all-round better experience, which will live long in your memory.
Welcome to busy world of wedding planners. There are many options available when choosing a wedding planner, but the best place to start is by making a list of everything you expect from your planner. From there, you can begin researching and crossing everything off your list. Remember that all planners are different, some are focused only on the design of the day, others will be more arranging and scheduling the day rather than designing it, so make sure you find one that offers the services you’re looking for. When you have a few potential planners in mind, arrange meetings and go through each point in a bit more detail so you are sure that your planner take care of everything you expect them to.
Here we will explain some of the options you might find during your research. Planners won’t always use these exact terms to describe themselves, but it should offer a good place to start from.
The all in one package. The full-service planner takes care of everything from start to finish. They will arrange all the vendors, ensure all your guests are catered for and will take responsibility for the design of the wedding. If you are looking for a lot of help and guidance in planning your wedding, or if you have a complicated concept that you want bringing to life then this is the best option for you.
The event designer is oriented towards the aesthetic of a wedding rather than the logistical side, meaning they will provide all the creativity to create your dream day, just don’t expect them to organise the timing or budgeting of your day. They may well work with vendors to help in creating your vision, and take care of flower arrangements for example, but they won’t organise other details for you. The designer isn’t essential. You can use a combination of florists and your venue manager to help create your vision, or a “floral designer” who specialises in creating an overall concept for the wedding, not just bouquets and centrepieces. Couples usually turn to event-designers as creating a unique and amazing experience can be very difficult and stressful without some help. If you are comfortable coordinating but would like help creating the design of the day, then this is the best option for you.
À La Carte Planner
The À La Carte Planner is perfect for a couple that want help creating a plan but want to organise the event themselves. You are able to ask them questions and get suggestions, recommendations for vendors, advice and help with particular issues you are having. It is up to you when you contact the planner, and they charge a flat fee for each service or an hourly rate for their assistance.
The day-of coordinator is best for couples who want to plan their own wedding but want to be able to relax in the build up and the day of. They will usually begin their involvement about a month before the event, just to ensure everything is running smoothly. On the day, they will take care of all of the setup and organisation, and cleaning or any other important tasks after the wedding. This lets you and your family enjoy the day without the worry and stress of managing the day.
