The story of Nirvana and Gadiel and how they got married in vineyard

Getting married in a castle is closely associated with uniqueness and style in each and every one of the spaces that they offer, and even more so if, in addition to the vineyard itself, the venue offers a chapel, several halls, a wine cellar, a farmhouse, and even a well-kept garden!

There are venues that will leave you stunned at first sight and will automatically make you want to celebrate your wedding in Alicante. Such as, for example, the moving beauty of the Font de la Roja natural park, just 12 minutes away from the city of Alcoy.

A wedding set in vineyard

Our bride and groom, Nirvana and Gadiel, chose to move away from traditional white tiles and walk down the aisle among trees and natural grass; an altar with mountain views covered in fabrics, candles, flowers and large white wooden benches at the venue for the ceremony.

Floricatessen, delicatessen flowers

The flowers were fresh from Ibi, from a company of floral design specialists for all types of venue and event, who created unique bouquets to suit the bride and groom’s tastes.

There was a combination of many untraditional flowers and leaves: orange and red leaves along with the classic green ones, white roses, lavender cotton, pink hydrangeas… An authentic explosion of colour, shapes and emotion!

A banquet ‘in situ’

The castle has a professional chef who freshly prepares all of the dishes.

On a trolley, also in white, there were the most unique appetisers. Freshly cut ham, cheeses, olives, dried fruits and goji berries, among other things.

Before the banquet, the venue was decorated with some centrepieces that, in addition to flowers, had fresh fruits such as pomegranates that added a burst of colour.

On the tables were elegant, silver mesh tablecloths with traditional white table linen and matching serviettes.

The tables were numbered with gold photo frames together with a plate with the menu and invitations, created by Tuinvi Creativa.

Tuinvi always surprises us with the invitations

Both the invitations and the accessories came in black envelopes. The invitations were white with the unique flowers, white tulips, that were also featured inside the envelopes, on the menu and on the tables.

The accessories included wax seals, white bows, tassels…

The bride, basking in sensuality

Nirvana was wearing the CINDY dress by Higar Novias, from the Valerio Luna collection. It was one of those dresses that left you speechless.

How? Through the crystal appliqué, its deep plunging neckline, the open back with lace which was also featured on the sleeves, and the chiffon train, but that’s not all.

The skirt was tight fitting to her lower body, creating a mermaid hem and in this way, creating the perfect feminine silhouette.

The makeup was designed by Natalia Fuentes, the professional makeup artist from Alicante, who used the best range of colours and products with undeniable quality.

Nirvana had bronze ombré and smoked eyelids with a range of tones with smoky black eyeliner, and for the lips, a matte rose shade. It didn’t even transfer with her kisses!

Her hair, styled by Bionda Estilistas, consisted of a Dutch braid decorated with tiny hydrangea petals that created little curls that framed her face.

Nirvana never stopped shining!

The elegance of a cigarette suit

Gadiel, wearing a suit by Garrido Ceremonia, stood out in a navy-blue cigarette suit accompanied by a grey waistcoat, a white shirt and a navy-blue tie with a paisley print: the stylish pattern within men’s’ wedding fashion.

Wedding planning Checklist

Planning a wedding is one of the most exciting stages of your life. You’re going to marry the person of your dreams, what could be better? However, the thought of this planning can be overwhelming for some people. This is where a wedding planning checklist can come in handy. It will organise you and make sure you won’t forget anything!

To help you, we have put together some important things to write on your checklist. We’ll start with things to do first and finish with last minute details. Let’s go!

1. Budget

First thing’s first, you need to plan how much you want to spend on your wedding. Then you need to elaborate your budget: what do you want to make a priority? On which parts do you want to allocate the most money? Once you have a budget, you can start looking at venues, decorations and vendors to fit your price limits.

2. Guests

Now you know how much you want to spend, you can choose your guests accordingly. Your budget may not allow for a huge list of guests, so you’ll need to decide who you want there the most. It is often the case that more guests get invited for the reception after the dinner, so you can involve more people at the wedding party.

3. Wedding planner

A wedding planner will be like your fairy godmother during the planning. She will take away your stress and will know all the best venues and vendors to make your day successful. Having a wedding planner is especially beneficial if you have a busy schedule outside of wedding planning. You can carry on with normal life knowing everything to do with your wedding is being taken care of.

4. Venue

Once you have your guest list, you can start the search for your ideal venue which has capacity for all guests. Look for somewhere that suits your style. It could also be a good idea from a financial and convenience point of view to hire a venue in which you can host each part of your wedding. As a result, you don’t have to think about guest transportation during the day, nor guest accommodation.

5. Theme & decor

Now you have your venue, you can decide on how you want it to be styled! This is one of the most fun parts. What colour scheme do you want? Do you want a particular theme that means something to you as a couple? Flowers? Arches? The list is endless! Pinterest is amazing for inspiration.

6. Vendors

To make your decor dreams come true, start thinking about hiring your florists and other decoration suppliers. Your wedding planner will know the best vendors to suit your style. Other vendors to hire include caterers, entertainers (such as a live music group or DJ), and a photographer/videographer.

7. Save-the-Date cards and invitations

Design your save-the-date cards and invitations to suit the style of your wedding. Include an RSVP and make sure you set a date you want your guests to confirm by.

8. Outfits

Start looking at potential wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses to allow for fittings. Buying a wedding dress is a beautiful moment, we hope it’ll be a memory you can treasure forever. Also look for outfits for the groom and groomsmen. It is a nice touch to incorporate a similar colour scheme to the bridesmaids’ and groomsmens’ outfits. For example, their ties could match the colour of their dresses.

9. Officiant

If you have opted for a non-religious ceremony, hiring an officiant is the next step. Nowadays, it is becoming common for couples to choose friends or family members to do this. More traditionally, there are professionals who carry out the ceremony.

10. Transportation

If your guests need a way of getting from A to B on your wedding day, it is time to start thinking about hiring transportation. There are so many options of transport: cars, coaches, taxis etc…

11. Menu

Think about what you want to eat on your wedding day. Consult your caterers regarding what options they have and arrange a menu tasting. A tasting will give you the opportunity to know if you like the menu or not.

12. Cake

Whilst we’re on the topic of food, now could be a good time to think about your cake.

13. Rings

You and your husband can go and choose your wedding rings together, or you can leave it as a surprise. Just remember to get them ready on the morning of the Big Day!

14. Styling

Organise who you want to do the bride’s and bridesmaids’ hair and makeup. It is always a good idea to organise a makeup and hair trial to work out timings and make sure you and your bridesmaids are happy.

15. Seating

Often the hardest part for couples is deciding where to seat their guests at the ceremony and banquet. Think about who would like to sit with who and whether or not you’d like a top table.

16. Vows

The time has come to write your all-important vows if you have chosen to create your own. Make them personal and rehearse them so you are ready for your big moment.

17. Gifts

Show your guests your appreciation with a small gift. Knowing what to get can be difficult, but here we have compiled a list of ideas for guests’ gifts. We hope it helps!

18. Songs

Speak with your partner and family about what songs you’d like to play at your wedding and reception. Once you have a list, you can send this to your chosen DJ/musician to make sure they’re prepared.

19. Relax

Now sit back and relax, most of the planning is now done. Consult with your wedding planner about a wedding coordinator to ensure the smooth running of your big day from start to finish. This will remove last minute panicking as they will resolve any issues on the day.

Here are some things to think about when creating a wedding planning checklist. Of course, a wedding planner could be a huge help during this process. To work with our expert wedding planner, you can write to us at info@svadbavispanii.ru to get the process started.

What do wedding coordinators do?

There are many parts to a wedding coordinator’s role. However, to summarise, wedding coordinators take care of every detail on your big day, from set-up to when your last guest is ready to go home. Here is a list:

  • They will set your wedding up. They’ll make sure your decorations are in the right place, and the same for the seats. When the time comes for the cocktail reception or banquet, they’ll set this up too.
  • They will ensure that your vendors are ready. They’ll call vendors such as your photographer, DJ and caterers to make sure they’re on their way.
  • They will be the go-to person to answer questions which your guests may have.
  • Your coordinator will inform your photographer of when important moments are about to happen. For example, they will tell the photographer when the cake will be cut, or first dance is about to happen so they can capture the most important moments.
  • Finally, they can ensure that your guests are looked after and are behaving well at your reception. Sometimes guests can get carried away if they’ve had a few to drink, so having someone control them can be very helpful.

The role of a wedding coordinator is limitless as every wedding is different, but these are the main points. Wedding coordinators are trained to adapt to all kinds of wedding, and they are ready for anything.

How much does a wedding coordinator cost?

This depends on how many wedding coordinators you need. We suggest 1 coordinator per 25 guests to make sure there are enough coordinators for your day to be smooth. Certain coordinators will look after certain groups of guests, such as the bridesmaids and groomsmen, the couple, and the vendors. The price also depends on the location of your wedding if your coordinator doesn’t work for the venue.

Wedding coordinators are undoubtedly crucial for your Big Day. This service comes as part of our wedding planning service, so you can contact us at info@svadbavispanii.ru to team up with us. We look forward to coordinating your wedding!
