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.
