Why do you need a wedding coordinator in Spain?

Wedding coordinator – is a professional who performs on the “scene” directly on your wedding day. He or she cares about agenda designed by wedding planner, watches out of all details and makes the celebration process perfect from the very beginning of the day till the time of last guest’s departure.

One important point: the wedding coordinator in Spain – it is all above plus a translator. This is a person who can help the bride and her guests at any time, communicates with local staff and resolves any misunderstandings and problems. Here in Spain, coordinator must speak not only English or Spanish, but often local language Catalan. I can say without any doubts: me and my team speak perfectly all these languages!

Wedding Coordinator tracks all the steps according the event timing and makes everything in time. Also he or she is responsible for the well-coordinated and efficient work of hired professionals – make-up artists, photographers, musicians, florists, etc. Coordinator remembers what time artists or photographer should arrive, who keeps the rings at the ceremony and what to do if the rain starts or  bride’s heel is broken.

And – yes, a good coordinator in Spain – this is a special kind of fairy, who is always in the right time in the right place and resolves all the problems. For example, coordinator’s purse is full of completely unexpected, but necessary at the moment things. Threads with a needle, pin and hair spray, comfortable shoes for tired legs, a sedative and analgesic medicine, USB flash drive, wet wipes, etc.

Wedding coordinator supervises all the wedding stuff – up to a little piece! The appropriate arrival of  stylists, makeup/hair for a bride, flowers, bridal bouquet and groom’s boutonniere, decor for the ceremony or banquet hall – floral compositions, furniture and accessories. Coordinator guides the transport on wedding day and controls all the movements of the bride and groom and their guests. He or she meets latecomers (or vice versa, early birds) and escorts them to the place of the ceremony.

If you decide to visit the castle or beautiful historic park, the coordinator will make the smooth entrance – here in Spain there are some places which require special or pre-purchased tickets for every guest. And the wedding coordinator will check the photo and video permission and etc. During the dinner coordinator monitors the efficient work of waiters, musicians and other professionals. Also coordinator is the person who pays vendors at the end of the celebration.

To be honest, I believe that the bride’s goal – to enjoy the wedding, wedding coordinator’s goal – to ensure everything makes the bride happy. For my dear clients I prepare a special gift from my heart – if you order a wedding organization in the Natalia Ortiz agency, Big Day’s coordination of any complexity is included in the cost of the wedding!

And of course, Wedding Agency by Natalia Ortiz provides the service of wedding coordination in Spain absolutely to all couples who have planned their wedding in Spain by themselves and who wants to enjoy their beautiful day!

Wedding in Valencia – Anastasia and Richard

Anastasia and Richard are a Russian-American couple, who trusted us to organised their wedding in Valencia. It was a wedding where simple decoration, light and orange color flooded the space, both exterior and interior. As the guests were foreigners, at the wedding there were several typical Spanish activities, such as a flamenco show and paella show cooking. Everyone enjoyed it!

The ceremony was held outdoors, with white chairs and a wooden altar. Everything was adorned with abundant vegetation and with oranges, since in Valencia they are the best in the world. The bride arrived in a spectacular vintage black car, wearing a simple dress that suit her greatly, with wavy hair and a white headband, which was later changed to a wreath of colorful flowers. In her bouquet, green and white predominated. Richard was waiting enthusiastically at the altar, dressed in beige pants and a blue tie, a young and elegant look.

The cocktail was held outdoors because the day was magnificent. For the indoor banquet the tables were decorated in neutral tones, but again with abundant flowers and oranges. The sweetheart table was spectacular! After the banquet, the guests were able to enjoy flamenco dancing and paella show cooking.

Wedding in Madrid: Oscar & Natalia

Oscar and Natalia’s wedding took place on a beautiful estate in Madrid. It was a magnificent Madrid wedding and today we want to show you how fabulous the day was – we hope you like it as much we do!

The setting was gorgeous, a lovely stone estate which was quite medieval in style, surrounded by picturesque, green gardens. The ceremony for this wedding in Madrid took place indoors, in a room with exposed stone walls and white beams on the ceiling which made the room lovely and bright, as well as traditional in style. The guests sat on white chairs which matched perfectly with the colour of the ceiling and the room was decorated simply but elegantly, with a few flower arrangements near the altar. The flowers contained strong pink tones, which contrasted amazingly with the room and matched the bride’s bouquet.

After the ceremony, the bride and groom had a photoshoot in the stunning outdoors surrounded by the fantastic stone pillars.

Styling

Both the bride and groom looked incredible on their big day. Natalia wore a wonderful dress with lots of sparkling details and a big netted skirt. The dress also had a beaded belt which added another glamorous detail to her dress and was very flattering. She wore her hair in a loose updo and she looked absolutely beautiful.

Oscar wore a smart black suit with a white shirt and a navy tie. He wore a dark pink flower in his jacket which matched perfectly with Natalia’s bouquet so the couple were in harmony.
