Tagomago dreaming

When Jenny and Philip decided on marrying in Ibiza, there could only be one dream destination for them....the private island of Tagomago, which Jenny´s Father´s home overlooked from Ibiza. On the Eve of the wedding this is where Jenny, Philip and their friends and family from all over the world met, enjoying an informal bbq and cocktails before the main event.

Jenny and Philip are hard working, dynamic, successful people who have since had a beautiful baby boy and now own their own home on the island and they were certainly determined and unfazed by the challenges posed by marrying on an island where everything has to be brought in by boat and where the stunningly blue waters are part of a National Park and strictly protected as such. This was certainly a wedding that kept us as Planners very much on our toes!

This was a stylish, intimate wedding with great respect paid to the natural beauty of the island. This was reflected in the decoration and styling of the day from the pampas grasses to the chic and understated floral decorations on the tables.

The ceremony conducted by Jon Michel was just the perfect choice for such a stunning setting and it would be no exaggeration to say that most of the guests had goose bumps watching and partaking in this ceremony as the sun set into the ocean behind them.

Dinner was a multitude of starters, encouraging guests to really get stuck in, share and converse, followed by a blind man´s paella and beef fillet with wasabi puree, a selection of mini desserts and then a huge 1.5m wide strawberry and sponge wedding cake. At midnight a traditional goulash was served (and yes even after that feast this went down a storm); the perfect choice to soak up the plentiful offering of various cocktails and drinks, before guests were whisked off by speed boat back to Ibiza.

 

A little party never hurt nobody

From the get go, it was clear on talking to Paul and Aelish about their wedding in Ibiza that they wanted a beautiful, magical, unforgettably day to celebrate with close friends and family, with fun pretty high on the agenda. Aelish looked so radiant and stylish in her Suzanne Neville dress and skyscraper high Laboutins, and so youthful!!! Just gorgeous. Her Bridesmaids wore dresses by Kelsey Rose.

Paul didn't´t let the side down looking pretty dapper in his Reiss suit and wearing a big smile for pretty much the entire day.

Atzaro was the perfect location choice for them as it offered various different looks for the day from the super romantic ceremony area by the long lap pool, to drinks reception around another beautiful pool, before dinner was served under the stars before moving the party area..

This was one of those weddings where the chemistry between the couple and their guests was just perfect...so many genuine moments of laughter and heart felt emotion. It´s at times like these that we are reminded just how lucky we are to do this job. Thank you both Paul and Aelish xx

50 shades of pink

Serious oohing and aaahing in IW HQ this morning, looking through these dreamy images from Austin and Annamarie´s intimate and tres chic wedding celebrated at Cotton Lounge in Figueretes....so many gorgeous shades of pink from dusty pinks and nudes, to coral and hot fuchsia. I think the ceremony arch is one of my favourite EVER (!!) and those hours spent with both Annamaria and the florist to get it spot on were so worth it in the end. I also think the mix of different flowers works beautifully and with the sparking Mediterranean in the backdrop and the white and pale pink decor of the venue, the overall result is so pretty, feminine and stylish. Special thanks to our wonderful florists, Ramo de Flores and our amazing decor team, Velvet Circus. 

Fatamorgana

Adela Baraja who shot this wedding has a strong background in fashion photography and it really shows in these super chic images of Tim and Katie´s wedding.

It was a dream set up for Adela as the ceremony was held at the cliff top with its jaw dropping views of Es Vedra and the reception was then held at one of the highest villas on the island, Fatamorgana, with views for almost 50 km to Formentera, and the most lovingly kept grounds and pools. Being a late May wedding the light was also perfect, and I searched through hundreds of beautiful photos to make a small selection here.

Katie rocked a beautiful gown with strong lines by Spanish designer Jesus Peiro and Ana Perez did the most gorgeous hair and make up. Thanks to our amazing team as always that pulled this one together....lucky to work with such talented people!

Pamper and catch up at home

As a busy working Mum of 3, it is always a treat to get my hair and make up done by the professionals and I love the whole process of a photo shoot, as well as chatting, eating cake and hanging out with my mates! Ana Lui @analuiphotography shot these images of Kerry and I at my house, as Ana wanted to submit them to Style Me Pretty Living and we also needed some updated publicity photos for our new website launched earlier this year. Jessie May Young @jessiemay_bohemianbeauty waved her magic hair and make up wand and made both Kerry and I feel fab....could so start every day with a little of this pampering! Thank you super talented ladies xx
