Just 90 minutes from the Spanish capital, on the hill of San Cristobal, in the heart of cuenca province, is a magical castle, where a dream event was held: Lydia and Sandro committed to a wedding in the castle of Belmonte.
The castle, a national monument
This emblematic medieval fortress of the fifteenth century allows the most original bride and groom to marry since 2010, and that is what our boyfriends did, set off for one of the best maintained and guarded castles of this country.
With its own rooms and galleries of 1456, and after being rehabilitated, there are still its Mudejar roofs, which make it a perfectly adapted dream place with all the comforts for your wedding.
Outdoor and indoor, the bride and groom were able to enjoy all the stages for their ceremony, including the yard, all of them perfectly decorated.
The decoration, in tune with the space
Mostly predominantly the tones of white, with a bridal bouquet of hydrangeas formed only by this color. A variety of white flowers accompanied by green leaves as a waterfall were also located on the stairs of the castle.
But the exception was at the tables where, in addition to the white roses, paniculatas and orbicular leaves, the roses were added in pastel orange and pinkish tones that, on a long pink cloth, formed a row that crossed the entire table.
The Azalea florist was the family business responsible for putting this touch of sophistication that, with its long history in the floral sector, achieved a delicate work of natural flowers that preserved the highest quality.
To increase the harmony of the decoration with the space, the table was added candles of different models on glass boats.
Lydia, a very medieval bride
With a design by Jesús Peiro, one of the first bridal firms to incorporate pockets, the bride dazzled through the castle spaces in a butterfly sleeve dress reminiscent of medieval costumes.
The model, fitted to the waist, had a line of transparencies on the chest and sleeves, as chantilly and embroidery. This one also had an uncovered back and was fastened in a long row of buttons. Behind it was formed a slight tail.
Mari Carmen Arenas, from Arpa Art, moved between passion, dedication and professionalism when making the makeup and hairstyle of the bride, giving a result whenever it adapts to the style of the bride so that it does not cease to be herself.
And that’s how Lydia felt, who could feel comfortable and very identified with shades of bronze tones, a black liner on the watermark and very natural lashes bathed in black mascara. To this she added a pink stick lipstick and a touch of illuminator that made her shine even more.
For the hairstyle, the winning option was a full bass pick-up, with some loose locks and a jewel crown, a must-have medieval ornament!
A groom with attitude in his garments
Sandro, our elegant boyfriend, was dressed by Bere Casillas in a tailored suit, and a customization of even the smallest detail!
The chosen jacket suit was navy blue, paired with a dark mauve vest with salmon moles on a white shirt and a salmon bow tie a great personal seal!
A memory embodied for eternity
And all thanks to Natali, our photographer from Valencia who moved to Belmonte Castle, one of the five best wedding photographers of 2014!
And thanks to Julian Meneses, the falconer who allowed the groom to enjoy an owl and photograph with him, a very medieval icon, where these animals were believed to be witches and wizards in disguise!
